i spent 8 months between 2017 and 2018 writing and self-recording an album. it's lo-fi pop music with influences ranging from bossa nova to hip-hop to emo and even 8-bit video game soundtracks.
it means A LOT to me.
oh and a friend once described it as "if Clairo listened to 90s emo and played Sega for a month"
if you're so inclined, plz check it out. if you really enjoy it, plz consider boosting or privately sharing with a friend.

☭ actual introduction toot ☭
i am a musician, writer, & occasional nude-poster. i'm a transgirl, proud queer, horny degenerate, & yet another one of them commies.
[i also write and design d&d stuff but honestly rpg folks on the birdsite have been such a fucking bummer that i don't think i'll talk about it here that much if at all??]
anyways hello glad to be here now where the cuties at
nobody is acting in a vacuum, we have influence over each other. that's power. when someone has a big audience, that's disproportionate power. you have to take that seriously or else already marginalized users will get fucked.
something that techlibs will never understand. you need guiding _principles_ more than rules, because rules will be gamed by the worst people until your community rots
"we are enforcing the code of conduct evenly" ok, what are you doing when a public figure with a history of transphobia and a large built in audience signs up? they haven't broken any rules yet. what about the users who came here to get away from that? anything in the code of conduct about that?
boost if you would fuck your own clone, fav if you would kiss them on the mouth, ignore if you fear clones
the whole "tortured artist" trope is bankrupt. no artist i know loves their depression or sees it as their muse. For me, depression is a hurdle to be overcome to make stuff. So many of my favorite writers - David Foster Wallace, Sylvia Plath, John Kennedy Toole, just to name a couple - killed themselves. if we had given them the help they deserved they would have written more than the one book each they managed.
