Hello! I finally changed accounts (used to be racheez on here).

I got my legal name change last week and I've rebranded all my art socials to Opalescent Eel.

"code is art" not in the sense of "this JavaScript library belongs in a museum" but in the sense of "this JavaScript library was created by a particular person in order to affect the world in a particular way"

The witch studied the cards, then the person sitting opposite.
She sighed.
"You are here to shout 'No spoilers!' as-"
"No spoi... Damn! How did you know?"
"I can't tell you."
"Is it a mystic secret?"
"That would be a spoiler."

fatphobia, parents - , weight talk 

i've always carried weight in my face, even when i was "skinnier" and my weight's been stable the last few years. fuck off dad, this isn't news to me and your 'concern' isn't helpful at all

just a stupid start to my day

fatphobia, parents - 

I tried to 'set boundaries' as instructed by my therapist and he just kept steamrolling me but I refuse to hang up the phone like he does when there's something he doesn't want to talk about

fatphobia, parents - 

I posted a selfie from last night to fb and then my dad called me today to tell me how he's concerned about my weight 🙃 and wouldn't back off when I told him I didn't want to talk about it

gender, bureaucracy 

oh I guess I never updated this thread??

anyways, after months of bullshit bureaucracy I have my SSN updated, I have my bank accounts & cards updated, I have my insurance card updated.

last remaining things are my college diploma and our marriage certificate (and passport but that's another can of worms)

I'm not sure what to do about the passport since the options are binary and I have an X marker. Female is wrong, male is wrong (and possibly has repercussions?) but I saw an article mentioning passports eventually adopting an x / nonbinary marker, though of course it'd be better to drop gender markers entirely
