I think it would be really cool if there were extension for the Steam client that would allow you to block most of whatever it is that now constitutes the Steam frontpage

starting to think that the hardest part of learning to make art is not actually learning the craft but unlearning so many toxic attitudes about art that pervade our culture

Funny how much of my therapy right now boils down to learning to tell myself "you're actually an okay human being."

technically, anything that's in the sky qualifies as "unidentified flying object" if you don't know what it is.

rare species of bird? UFO. type of plane you've never seen before? UFO. probably a weather balloon but you're not that much into meteorology? you guessed it. UFO.

things that do not match the definition of UFO:
- alien spaceship, identified
- alien spaceship, landed

things that match the definition of UFO:
- angel, flying
- likely a bird but possibly an airplane
- unexpected rock from catapult

Going around catching Pokemon in Pkemon Sword reminds me a lot about the stories I heard about how 19th century "Explorers" would travel around the world and collect animals.

judith butler quote on terfs 

"It would be a disaster for feminism to return either to a strictly biological understanding of gender or to reduce social conduct to a body part or to impose fearful fantasies, their own anxieties, on trans women... Their abiding and very real sense of gender ought to be recognised socially and publicly as a relatively simple matter of according another human dignity. The trans-exclusionary radical feminist position attacks the dignity of trans people."
Judith Butler, interview with the New Statesman

Psssst.

Not every Non-binary person has to go by they/them

You can be nonbinary and a man
You can be nonbinary and a woman
You can be both, you can be neither

I don't owe you an explanation just because you don't know how to Google it

liberals seem to think there's just this sudden moment of big nazi, and dont seem to get that there's years of escalation and normalising dehumanisation before the moments in history they're talking about

i love how every transphobic argument just boils down to "but what if cis people take advantage of this to be evil?"

in the end, they always admit that trans people are great, it's just that cis people are shitty, and they'd rather punish trans people than stop shitty cis people

hey, Europeans, don't forget we have concentration camps too. migrant camps, immigration detention centres, they're all over the place here

🚨 game release 🚨 

after a year of exclusivity im releasing my game Restricted Airspace publicly. the game was inspired by a fear i carried for years that Beirut would be destroyed -- a fear that came true last month. so on the 40th day after the tragedy, the traditional day of mourning, im releasing a version of the game with no antagonists, no explosions, no smoke, no inevitable loss.

all proceeds go towards the reconstruction of Beirut.

Family, mentions spiders 

Gave the Spider plushy to my brother's toddler today and they were as happy about it as a toddler can be about a random new toy.

if the cis get to start wildfires with their gender reveal parties, then it's only fair that trans people get to do one (1) arson when they come out
