Pinned toot

personal meta, pinned post 

I need to find a trans community in NW Florida. I feel like I'm slowly falling to pieces, unable to present as male. If you're in the area, especially the Bay County area, can you please get in touch with me?

If you're not, can you please boost this so that area residents can see this?

Did you know you can play chess on the Fediverse? 🐴 👑 lets you challenge people or put yourself forward to be challenged:

Moves happen by toots using chess notation, there are further instructions on the site.

It works with Mastodon and other ActivityPub-powered platforms.

Tangent: As a professional writer, I hereby declare that "wordsing" is a real word. :flan_hearts:

@maloki As a side note, there are autistic advocacy groups actively working to get rid of "functioning" labels, basically on the grounds that chunking folks into two broad categories inaccurately covers up a ton of important subtlety and has historically been used to justify some really terrible treatment on both sides. The cynical line is "Low-functioning is used to deny agency; high-functioning is used to deny support."

@porsupah The mural that Brian Kenny and #Arttitude painted at "ground zero" of our #gayborhood came out beautifully. Since the news article showed the work in progress, I thought everyone might enjoy a few shots of the finished piece.

ME has taken away:
*my hopes to work in a plant nursery and run gardening workshops
*most of the energy to garden and grow my own food
*being able to see most of my friends
*my ability to financially support myself, and contribute to our joint income
*being able to travel around Europe and see friends in Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium
*being an activist on international development and environmental justice issues
*being able to walk in hills and valleys
*my confidence and reliability
*so many dreams
*my sense of self

"One plus one is zero."
"I'm a programmer and I moved a couch yesterday."
"My arms are tired."
"I can't carry anything right now."
"I'm a computer programmer and I camt carry. One plus one equals zero."
"... I hate you."


I thought I would share this 1-bit tile-set by KenneyNL over on bird-site.

It's a CC0 licensed #gameassets pack containing 1,024 tiles/items/characters. I love its aesthetics and _will_ be making some things with it.

An acknowledgment to those I've known in the past, but no longer speak to: life sent us our separate ways, but I still sometimes think of how you described the town you grew up in (and how much you wanted to get out), the secrets I shared in return and how now, we're all just fragments of stories and memories in each other's lives. I hope you're well.
