The beta test of “Lilith” has not revealed any issues, and principle stakeholders have signed off; it is now at release candidate status.
In the forthcoming update, “she/her” pronouns will also be designated as preferred; “they/them” pronouns will continue to be admitted, with no current plans to deprecate support.
Hope to connect with more #DerbyTwitter expats, #Feminist & #Antifascist #BlackMetal ⁴ fans, #TwinCities residents, #HighEdWeb folks, #MeFi -tes, and #CVG types.

blazing hot musical take; irresponsible speculation about a public figure Show more
This is an opinion I am surprised to hold, but after multiple relistens to each, I now believe _Monster_ is a much better album than _Out of Time_ (even though “Country Feedback” is the best R.E.M. song).
(Also, Michael Stipe is pretty clearly aspec, but is he an egg as well? I can’t quite figure it out.)

Just realized I turned out trans because I played with G.I. Joes all the time as a kid.
Their plastic crotch-bulges would inevitably break off and that was a formative notion

Sometimes—not usually, but sometimes—I feel resentment at past-Steve for not figuring their shit the rest of the way out during college, instead of squelching it back down for another two decades.
Sometimes—not usually, but sometimes—I feel so envious of all the kids on Masto who are so h*cking gorgeous, who are getting to live their own twenties the right way the first time around.
And sometimes—not usually, but sometimes—I feel old and broken and undateable.
feet; meta Show more
feet discourse on masto is very different from feet discourse in the roller derby community, where if your foot problems aren’t currently making it too painful to practice, you’re doing just great, and if you also have all ten toenails you are the prettiest one in the hotel pool
Update: Nice won! So proud of how everybody played. Now, I’m not saying it was because of my jummer juit (jean summer suit), but not saying it *wasn’t* either…
(really, though, it was because of their hard work and practice and picking good individual goals for the game and h*cking NAILING them and I love my team and I love roller derby and yeah.)
