Pinned toot

I guess I should write an for myself. ๐Ÿ˜Š

So first thing's first I guess, I'm a bi/pansexual trans girl. Feminine pronouns, please. ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm a hobbyist libre game developer, though I don't do it as much these days as I used to. Most of what I do these days is contributing to Naev (ranging from engine development to adding new missions to just fixing gendered language, depending on what I find).

Favorite animal: spiders! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ•ท I love spiders because they really are our bestest of best friends, and they're adorable. Even more so than cats, which I also love, though I admit the contest is quite close.

I'm a total weeb. I've been studying Japanese for years and can speak it at a basic level. ใ‚ˆใ‹ใฃใŸใ‚‰ๆ—ฅๆœฌ่ชžใงใ‚‚ใ‚ใŸใ—ใจ่ฉฑใ—ใฆใใ ใ•ใ„ใญใ€‚

Spicy food is my LIFE! ๐Ÿ˜ I've been eating spicier and spicier food over the years; right now I always get the spiciest available when I go to a Thai restaurant (Thai is easily my favorite cuisine), and at home I use ghost pepper sauce for most things.

I also make bracelets as a hobby. I've made literally dozens of them, including a fair number of LGBTQ+ pride bracelets (mostly emphasizing the "B" and "T" aspects, as you might expect).

And that's... not everything, but hey, there's a 1500 character limit and it's not like I need to post my life story or anything anyway. ๐Ÿ˜„

:lgbt_io: It was brought to my attention that there's a Matrix/ LGBT chatroom (filled with homophobic messages) has linked itself to our website

A Masto user and myself have contacted the owner of the chatroom (appeared to be "thekyriarchy") but no response so far.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a pure mistake or a troll to our site.

So, can you all kindly help boosting this toot and hopefully some people might come forward with more info or ways to contact the chatroom owner?

Thank you very much!

the Amazon propaganda on twitter is so disgusting and creepy, they pay their own "low tier " employees (oh excuse me "associate") to say good thing about them and answer the bad thing by telling everything is fine.... Fuckin hell

I used to have that insecurity over liking "masculine" things and whether I'm still "really" a woman quite a bit myself... ๐Ÿ˜… But what I've realized is that ultimately, your experienced gender doesn't need to be validated; it *is* valid, regardless of what anyone thinks or whether or not you align with societal expectations for your experienced gender.

More directly, for example, if you have short hair, wear men's clothes, have a deep voice, do not do HRT, have not had any surgery, and enjoy playing video games and watching sports, I don't care what society says about you, if you identify as a woman, then you're a woman, end of discussion. Everything else is entirely up to what *you* want for *yourself*, and none of it can *ever* make you any less of what you feel you are deep down inside.

The same, goes, of course, if you identify as or and happen to match up with societal expectations for men or for women.

Google, who became the most powerful corporation in the world by selling web ads: Hey in the future every computer program should actually be a website. Don't worry about why, just do it. It'll be cool. We're the vanguard of technology or something

People: ok

People: hey why does this calendar i downloaded have ads in it

Google: Haha cool

So decided that adblockers weren't ethical? Corporations? Those that are murderers and thieves? Those that declare "It's THEFT!" that they can't get your data, install viruses, and consume you?
It's a lie. Ethics is about not doing harm, not about if a company can get money from you.

difference between a millionaire and a billionaire 

union agitating, anti-capitalist sentiment, uspol, etc 

I clearly have a boring life. x) So many boosts and replies, and so few top-thread toots of my own.

if one more cis person splains to me that trans health bureaucracy is in place "just in case you're not sure" then they're getting an earful

Ignorance is violence :dont_at_me:

countering misinformation spread by transphobes with citations 

When you work at a 24/7 store and a customer tells you on Friday to "have a great weekend off".
Who do you think staffs us on the weekends, Steve? Ghosts? No, it's just me, again.

White supremacists, Nazism, alt-right, banality of evil 

grammar of "trans" in "trans [person]" (319 words) 

Nice to see more companies put the ever controversial "respect other players" and "kick toxic dipshits out of your gaming groups" advice in their books

Cis people want to make all nonbinary people the same so that they don't really have to challenge the gender binary or their cissexism.

But, we nonbinary people are not the same and we never will be. Sometimes we are barely  even similar to each other.

We are as changing as sunlight on a river and as individual as the stars.

transphobia/TERF bs 

Holy shit, never considered that, but this is likely accurate.

How society views you does not define you. Sometimes "self expression" can feel like "self repression" if your gender does not "match" the way you like to dress.

Sometimes you're not expressing anything besides what colours and patters you like to wear. You're not trying to "express" a gender, you just wear what looks nice to your eyes or feels nice on your skin. Society is just reading too much into it, and their incorrect interpretation does not define you.
