pandemics, plural; AIDS-like blame of queer men? 

@gamehawk "with recent cases predominantly in gay, bisexual or men who have sex with men" has to be even more terrifying for people who lived in the queer community in the height of the AIDS pandemic

maybe a hot trans take 

the cis people in my life who are the most supportive of me are the ones who have openly considered their gender and what it means to them to be a man or a woman. they have a broader understanding of themselves and of the world around them. and are more inclined to listen to trans issues or feelings and be like, yea that makes sense

i kind of hate posts that are like “cis people don’t question their gender so you must be trans” what’s wrong with cis people questioning their gender and/or experimenting and deciding that they are in fact cis. i think cis people should be encouraged to think about their gender. and just bc someone does doesn’t mean they are trans

Izzy wants to make sure that you're OK and if not, she wants to help you feel better.

@Pixley I think self-boosting is great on here because we've still got a chronological timeline so I'll boost an evening post for the morning crowd or vice versa.

I don't boost my own stuff because I want it to get some Influencer's attention, it's because I want my friends in different time zones or biorhythms to get to see the thing.

Or I just think the world needs to see an Izzy pic more than once.

Ah, yes, applications that make you manually go into the ~/Library folders to delete stuff before you can do a clean reinstall.

@Garrison After getting "contact your networky people" error twice I just gave up and used my gmail. The is a forwarding address from Duck Duck Go, maybe Microsoft hates them because DDG tries to prevent MS from spying on everyone?

TIL Microsoft Teams won't let me use my address to make an account. (Which I have to do for an interview tomorrow.)

general psa about content warning usage:

using an unusual spelling or censoring specific letters in a cw makes the cw less accessible; they don't get caught by people's filters and put extra work on other folks to interpret them. please don't do this!

in my machine version, a small meter reads 0-5. It starts at 5, and each time you pull its chain, the number goes down by 1. The number is only replenished by waiting. It goes up every 4.8 (24/5) hours, so you get 5 "spoons" a day.

Here it is seen before and after some weathering. I want this machine to reflect both the durability of the spoon theory idea, as well as the hard-earned experience of those practicing it.
