I got gendered correctly by strangers *four* times today - "ma'am", "ladies" referring to a group I'm in, etc. ... feels super good.
(I rarely get misgendered these days - still happens, but mostly from bigots. I just don't get gendered *correctly* much, so it's still exciting when it happens - usually folks just don't gender me.)
Dang! Just realized that while I really like Kyra (khyperia -> k[h]y[pe]r[i]a -> kyra), I don't really want a name that rhymes with "guy-ra" - which very occasionally my mind flickers to when going by "khy" in meatspace. Maybe I could pronounce it kee-ra (but I feel like I should spell it Kira in that case).
@chr Theme suggestion (could also comment on https://github.com/cybrespace/mastodon/issues/17 if you'd like me to): the highlighted toot using keyboard shortcuts (j and k) is *really* hard to see - it's extremely similar to the normal color. Also, keyboard shortcuts seem to not work half the time? Idk about that one.
I kind of want to change my name to Luna or Eris, or maybe Kyra, but tbh the pain of changing my name again far outweighs the benefit... maybe in a while I'll just change my display name to something else, and just go with what happens?
(Also Luna is definitely out of the question, because of the strong HP association)
Scifi scene idea: a large, permanent space station is going to collect a lot of trash in its orbit. So, large deorbiting lasers are on the retrograde side of the ship. A character's favorite activity is going to an observation deck in the back and seeing junk twinkle like bright stars as it ablates and slowly deorbits.
