Hi!

If I don't follow you or know you, please write me a short message - how did you find me or even better, something about yourself. We can get to know each other better this way. Thanks!

Once again:

PLEASE @ ME BEFORE FOLLOWING THX

body positivity, gay gym and fitness culture 

I get that men who work out are a minority and of that minority, only a minority is affected by this fitness addiction disorder - while (straight or queer) feminine women are a much much larger group. this makes for more representation, of course.

still it's sad!

I missed fat positive men and masculine people for a long time now, but I realize we also need "thin positive" masc people, who say it's okay to not have a muscular physique.

But the next session can only be in a month. I hope we can organize some kind of a oneshot or different gaming night.

Sketched my first dnd character whom I will play tomorrow *hype*

if you play an instrument that nobody else plays, you're automatically the best player.

If I helped you before and I haven't lately, I'm sorry, I don't read my feed much. Please just DM me if I missed it!

No, I didn't spend half a day making a dnd character and drawing character sheet by hand, why?

My gender is not 'prefer not to say'. I very much like saying that I'm non-binary.

I wish people would stop thinking about a kind of binary between self-hosting something and using a big, monopolozed social network service. Because of the expenses of digital landlording (hosting services, bandwidth, etc) self-hosting in the sense that one person supplies all the resources and funds for starting up some autonomous service is something that can really only happen in first world countries.

However, attempting to portray that as the only way to obtain digital autonomy for undepriveleged minority communities is itself reflecting your privilege, coming from a place where the only people who engage in digital autonomy are often loners who have enough spare cash to just handle hosting costs etc. Collective autonomy makes the process much more scaleable by pooling more resources together to provide these services in digital collectives. Especially when mutual aid is involved.

The only places where this kind of stuff really doesn't apply is in places where internet access is heavily government controlled like in China or Cuba, or internet access is not available at all.

Get ready for my new book:

“Gender Neutral Pronouns: They're Here, Get Used To Them”

If I ask tomorrow why my fingers are sore it's from jamming that one piece of twenty snaps onto the die. It takes a lot of pressure.

Also, kinda bummed that you can't read the "hoarding" tray when it's full of dice, because I feel like it needs to be full of dice for its product photography.

lukewarm ui take 

UI on desktop will continue to be more and more mobile-like as much as they can get away with it. It might have been too early for GNOME 3 and too early for Window 10 but it will be more and more "just right" each year. When you have 100% of population knowing how to use smartphones (kinda) but not knowing how to use PC you don't exactly go over the percentile of nerds and if you only need to make UI once it's also cheap

Critical Role not really spoilers unless you are like me 

Seeing tensions with Orion arise made me sad, then there's this intermediate episode where it seems all very good but people in comments say it's *not* going to be good so I'm sad?

Watched just 10 episodes of Critical Role and Imm already thinking about which dice to use for Matt Mercer altar
