Also as I figured, apparently lots of other artists also thought about this, lol, but oh well
#Kinktober 16: gender play
I was there the day Arthur rowed out on the lake.
I saw the hand rise out of the lake, saw Arthur leaning out of the boat, taking it.
Taking the Pen of Truth.
Arthur wrote he was given a sword, and so he was. He wrote peace, and so it was.
He never wrote the pen was unbreakable.

though in japanese specifically, the gendering of one's self and other people is more complicated than just that, the pronouns are not indicative of gender identity the way we think of it but more like a neutral/masc/fem spectrum that is also intertwined with all the other social categories (age/status/etc), so it probably makes English "announce your pronouns and try to remember others" seem like a simpler system.
Thinking about pronouns, having gendered 3rd person pronouns but not gendered 1st person pronouns means it's up to other people to gender the subject correctly instead of giving that power to the subject. And so we try to normalize pronoun announcements and hope others go along with it. Whereas some languages like Japanese there are multiple gendered versions of "I/me" that you only need to refer to yourself in one sentence ("I♀️ am Jesse") to suggest your identity.

#Kinktober 12: too little, too much
Normalize quitting things. It could be school, work, relationships, hobbies, or pretty much anything.
Quitting is often thought of as inherently negative; nobody wants to be called a "quitter". But there are plenty of situations where not only is it reasonable, it's the *best* course of action.
You can drop out college or switch majors when you don't care about the thing you're studying. You can end a relationship when it becomes toxic. You can stop playing a game that you don't enjoy.
Okay so. Wir müssen von der Schule aus eine Umfrage machen, bei der es um die politische Meinungsbildung bei Jugendlichen geht. Bitte macht mit, teilt diesen Link, klickt euch durch! Sie ist auf Deutsch. Die Auswertung werde ich im Dezember posten. Wir brauchen mindestens 100 Leute, die diese Umfrage machen, falls ihr also relevante Mailinglisten, Telegram-Gruppen und sonstiges habt, würde ich mich über ein Verbreiten freuen!
