Pinned toot re: where I live
Now that I'm meeting some of y'all IRL, I realize I should clarify for the curious:
As my intro toot says, I live on a commune. It's on the east coast of the USA. I've lived there since 2015. I love it.
And I needed a break from it. So I'm taking 2019 off, staying with friends/fam in the PNW. I'll head east again at the end of this year. I miss my fellow communards, and especially my sweetie, but I'm also really enjoying being back in my home region. 🌲💚🌲

Look at all my cards, please, I worked hard on them
Here's my entire inventory of photo-poetry. Every single picture has its own corresponding poem. You'll notice only one set of duplicates. I ask that the person recieving a card pick a picture first, and then flip it over to see what the poem is.
Row 1: Beta batch. I mostly made these, about 3 years ago, to give as gifts.
Row 2-3: First serious batch.
Row 4-5: Reprints that have been successful across batches.
Row 6-7: all new photos and poetry
Pictures, eye contact
Glammed up as a flapper for my 1920's -themed work party. I made the headband, choker and necklace myself using bits from a craft shop (and some EL wire I already had) - they came out way better than I thought I was capable of.
One of my friends said I looked like I'd just stepped out of Bioshock. Not sure if he realised, but by my reckoning that's the highest possible compliment.
Rambling on the gender stories we tell and put on other people
I feel like this should go without saying, but I’ve seen a lot of indignant confusion around it so I’d like to sum up my best understanding of the situation in hopes others find it unifying, helpful, or uplifting.
Some trans people were always their current gender, and some trans people changed gender at some point in their lives. For some, the distinction is fuzzy, or perhaps unimportant. Some people are constantly shifting in their gender. Some people had a past life, an alter ego, and some have always been the same person, just misunderstood for a time.
All these people are valid, and their experiences shouldn’t be re-framed to fit one narrative.

@Dayglochainsaw Sweet good idea, hey everyone play my game it's at improbableisland.com and it's a text adventure about probability as the fifth fundamental interaction, there's a lion who keeps popping up in increasingly elaborate and unlikely disguises, it's screen-reader friendly and you can run it no problem on a single-core laptop from 2005 (heck that's my dev machine), please boost because I'm crap at marketing
Hi, I just wrote a letter to the library asking them to cancel hosting this TERF event, maybe join me?
Thanks to @mcmoots being all "woot, you go!" earlier, I can now say that I will be presenting on growing saffron at this event.
Details to follow.
Here's the non-Fb link to the event,
