Considering a legal name change, but a single character name seems like a pain (many web forms do not accept, etc.)

I've been thinking about choosing a word that I can abbreviate to B. (kinda like "danger is my middle name) so when people ask me what the b stands for, I have something interesting to say.

I already created a company called B is for Business, but I don't feel that enthusiastic about that one.


What are your favorite eccentric/empowering words that start with B?

Is your seat comfortable? Can you adjust your chair properly?

Y'ALL I AM HAND-TRANSCRIBING EXAMPLE CODE FROM A ZINE TO LEARN HOW TO HACK

THIS IS PERFECT

thinking about the zine i wrote a couple years ago about being newly trans, newly an artist, newly a game dev starting out in the world

it's called JUST FUCK ME UP and i have extremely strong feelings about it: hthr.itch.io/just-fuck-me-up

I was DISTINCTLY TOLD, in the 1990s, that if we put computers into all the things it would make us all super-smart and super-sexy and super-kind and we would all live in houses made of translucent plastic and acid dance and rainforests and we would specifically NOT become a society of giant raging dumbass jerks selling fake nutritional supplements to Nazis.

There were RECEIPTS. Money changed HANDS.

I wish to complain to the MANAGEMENT.

You can fit so many instances in this bad boy.

@b_cavello However, if you think about it, capitalism is actually a system in which humans aren't in control. Our behaviors are more or less governed by an unsupervised money algorithm that our species as a whole seems unable to unite to stop

NEW ZACHTRONICS HELP

Am kinda-sorta done with the and for some reason felt compelled to make some propaganda.

Might be WIP or abandonware. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

It was, like, 5 entirely not awkward minutes. Ridiculously not a big deal.

I just thought about the, "But how will I tell my kids?!?" crowd and, like… it is so easy. I just did it. I didn't even have or need a plan.

It's not like trying to help someone figure out when or if they're ready for sex or anything.

This evening, I learned that one of the 7yo's close friends wants to change pronouns (in addition to clothing changes some months ago). Name change is still up in the air.

After coming home from playing with them and another family, I had a short conversation with the 7yo about it to make sure there weren't any questions on concerns and to say that if there were, we're happy to talk about it and to reassure them that that kind of change is available for them, too, if they want it.
