i went looking for something in my discord chat history with @HTHR and i found this gem

I respect and appreciate "Let me talk your ear off about neopronouns" trans people even if I myself am a "Maybe I can learn a language without gendered pronouns and then spend the rest of my life pretending to not know english" trans person.

having a techie girlfriend is being asked "what happens when you click it though, like what's the error" and going "i mean it just doesn't work" and hearing the sharp inhale of someone working through their tech support trauma right in front of you to avoid screaming

I majored in Gender Studies, have experience with RDF/ActivityPub, and keep a close eye on Unicode. I unapologetically fangirl over and and sometimes write adult . I used to conlang, and now channel that energy into making English weird instead.

There are few things which make me feel more tired, deep in my soul, than seeing a white woman espouse self-congratulatory rhetoric about how much she prioritizes “listening” and “personal growth”. My hope is that I will instead be able to demonstrate those things through my actions.

Still, I want to emphasize that my mentions/DMs are always open & available. I may not respond immediately, and I cannot provide therapy or crisis counselling. But if you donʼt know where else to turn, give me a go.

More about me: I have a website at, a journal at, and a long history of publishing my thoughts online. I was the “backup admin” of years ago, which meant that when the server exploded, I could confirm to everyone that yes, the server exploded. Then we all waited for the actual admin to wake up :P .

Since then I have been mostly just laying low, something which is extremely easy to do on Mastodon (PROTIP: if you donʼt follow anyone, nobody follows you).
