like, i understand why people do it and people who tuck, people who go stealth, etc. are valid. but for me personally, i feel like something concrete i can do to contribute towards building that world is to be open and proud about being trans and to refuse to be ashamed of it. to fight to be accepted as trans rather than trying to be seen as cis. i want to be treated as a woman, yes, but i have no issue with people knowing that i'm a *trans* woman.

as a socialist i believe that nothing should be privatized, but it's especially unforgivable for the provision of the fundamental building blocks of modern human existence (food and water, housing, clothing, sanitation, medicine, electricity, communication, education, etc.) to be controlled by corporations whose ultimate reason for existence is the accumulation of profit. the transfer of all such services to community-accountable public ownership is a pressing immediate demand.

realized while looking through my screenshots for one i have a lot of really good (funny, mostly) anime screenshots

tfw @Penelo made a random Precure screenshot i had sitting on her tablet into her profile picture again

like, lemme just talk a little more about why i like these. this is such good UI writing for a game. you're being presented a yes or no question, but instead of being worded in a way that reminds you that you're playing a game, being presented as if the game is asking you the question (which would be immersion-breaking), it's presented as if the NPC you're talking to is asking you the question. and not you as in the player, but you as in the character you're playing as. this is great because part of playing an RPG is essentially playing pretend that you yourself are the character you control, and this kind of writing facilitates that instead of interrupting it.

@kinsey that's essentially how i approach i take to FLOSS.

but there's certain online spaces, communities, projects i have given up on trying to fix

Wikipedia, is one of them.
stack overflow, etc

i love the flavorful modals in FFXIV that relate to the dialogue instead of talking about things like you're playing a game

one that'll probably always stick with me is when you're doing the quest to join the Weavers' Guild and the guildmaster says you have to be "prepared to suffer" for the craft and the modal is like

> Are you prepared to suffer?
> [Yes] [No]

Pitch for an anime:

Set in a world where some people have powers. Our protagonist is one of the people with powers.
We'll have lots of battles between the people with powers, maybe even a tournament (that's never been done, right?)
Now back to our hero. He's an adolescent male and he has a special thing that he needs to accomplish and it's very difficult.
But here's the thing that's gonna set this show apart. ready? - He's more determined than anyone else. That's his thing. He's determined.

will bethesda learn from their mistakes with fallout 5 and make a game with the greatness of fallout new vegas and the gunplay of fallout 4

or will it be even worse than fallout 76
