Macros are like icecream, very cool and nice, but fuck if I can make any, and having too much makes my head hurt

@Inumo Finally found the nick, whee. Was wondering if you have any extra decks left over, so that I could maybe buy one later on? Found out a bit late about this from your shipping fulfillment posts ^^"

Occasionally, you'll see someone argue that a topic is too important to "censor" behind a content warning.

The purpose of CWs is not to prevent people from seeing the warned-about content, but rather to prepare them to see it. That's especially necessary in a forum where posts come through in a steady stream, with barely any transition from one thought to the next. It helps people fight numbness, keep from feeling overwhelmed, and ultimately maintain their engagement with important issues.

Spent some more time working on that 2022 dragonsona revision. The usual fragmented closeup of eye colors turned into a headshot that I'm really happy with. I should do some more headshots, I always do full figure stuff.

No resources to write more, but today it’s “European Day of Protest for the Rights of Disabled People” and it’s so necessary…

In #Berlin there’s a demo you can join this afternoon and at the moment there’s a rallye at Brandenburger Tor

Do you remember how long it took you to learn to write when you were in school, and what that involved? Copying letters over and over and over while your hand and fingers strengthened and got used to the movements?

Drawing/painting/other-forms-of-crafting are no different. You're learning a new skill; give yourself space to grow and be patient while you learn. You might be bad at first but that's fine, you're allowed to be. Keep going. Practice is part of the process. 💪

#WormsOfAffirmation

there is a reason nobody in vrchat has a human avatar

"Unprofessional" = "This doesn't fit what Capitalism likes"

I miss the Internet before everyone pivoted to video.

Another thing that we have been told is that our writing only really publicly complains about things that are so observably wrong that it can't get us any flak for complaining about them. Yeah, that's probably also Twitter culture leaking over.

I don't want the things I write to get us cancelled, so I very finely craft things and prune topics away so that there's little room, margin or chance of error in interpreting it. This is very hard to do in a canvas of 280 characters. Much harder than you have any idea. Especially when topics require nuance or more words.

I hate it lol.

I just woke up and the curb cut post I did has so many boosts. Holy shit.

Another example, this time for something that helps me.

#subtitles on video are usually thought of as being for people who are hard of hearing or deaf, but they’re also super useful if you have audio processing difficulties, like myself. I don’t _need_ them, but they’re nice to have when they’re available. (This is common in autistic folks like myself, I’m told)

I'm a grumpy queer dragon lady and this is my quiet cave for me and some friends.
