Boundary Post, Read Before Attemtpting to Flirt 

honestly people rightfully talk about how bad American science education is but one thing people don't often talk about is that we don't teach how to read scientific papers. they're a weird form that's not intended to be read linearly or really like any other piece of writing and it's not something I ever felt really comfortable with until multiple years of grad school

I keep seeing a lot of apologies for not being interesting or funny or positive, and I just wanna say:

You are a person, not a brand. You do not need to be consistently anything but yourself. If you need to take a break, that's OK. We're all people, we'll understand.

Whoever scooped out my brain and replaced it with terrible references to 90s and 00s rock: fuck you.

Aren't you tired of high fantasy?

Don't you ever just want to be a kobold in space?

I made a rules-light TTRPG! A lot of friends helped out, including @noelle, @io, @venatus, @SpaceCadet, and other cool people who unfortunately aren't on here for me to plug!

It's "Pay-What-You-Want," even if what you want to pay is nothing! Check it out!

So the actual problem that I think is making me want to jump servers? I miss EFDN.

@xandra I personally like being able to short tag you but I knew your time here would always be but a short dream UwU

If Black Lives Mattered on here, centering their voices and an acknowledgement of the complexity of their lives would be the daily task
Black Lives Matter always, even when they self advocate.

No one finds it mildly ironic that BLM but “here, be in the corner of this flag that took me two seconds to mock up, bc I dont really care abt your representation bc that means that its not about me and that is the real violence”

We were non binary before colonialism & we were during & we are NOW

There are like all of 2 users in the whole fediverse who say anything about how often black trans folks, especially black trans women, are murdered. But yes, PV are the villains for... caring?

The fact that centering black trans folks is associated negatively with PV should be a hot topic of concern here.

weird thing is, on different occasions, I've both heard people use BOTH "white is the absence of all color" (in pigment-mixing color theory) AND "white is the combination of all colors" (in light-mixing color theory), to dispute the use of black to represent nonbinary or 'neutral' gender

this is surreal because black is the absence of all color (in light-mixing color theory) AND the combination of all colors (in pigment-mixing color theory)

sounds like that's not why 'white' is 'neutral' 🤔

That flag has started a super demeaning discussion now

'oh it would be from pv'

Imagine hating when Blk non binary and Trans folks advocate for themselves and get demeaned for it.

BLK Trans women are no longer w us a rate we can't understand. No one on here talks about it.

It's too much and I don't have the bandwidth and now this.

Ppl are treating that flag post w such VIM

@ArtistMarciaX I like this flag a lot, it's nice to see a pride flag that's not got "and Black people too" bolted on top (though those amendments on other flags are good too, absolutely). This flag is by and for Black people and puts them front and centre, it oozes pride and I love to see it
