…I know I make everything EDS, but given partial inaccessibility to what works as the fix for the cis, is… are trans men EDS, can I say that I am not mad at Max at all here because he was very explicit about being meaning cis men

This is good, be more like Max

People failing to be like Max are the reason I don’t have a way to talk about stuff outside Max’s domain and keep panicking mid-box-of-scraps fixes

@saintwalker98 @loudpenitent @BootlegGirl @arthur_affect @hyperdriveprof @jbarkerdesigns @leonidas701 Yeah.

And I am talking about a specific subset, just the subset that is the /reason/ there’s the strong impression of this being on the rise for Gen Z especially when queer. @saintwalker98 @loudpenitent @BootlegGirl @arthur_affect @hyperdriveprof @jbarkerdesigns @leonidas701 When the organized movement is deliberately seeded by T ER Fs and organized in a way that promotes constant escalating stress on those most involved, I’m not confident I can assume ‘these people are fighting for X’

On a different and related note: has the circlejerk wank about zines died down yet, because I’m at the right intersection of history and relevant contemporary immersion* to hate everything *In other words: Yes, iff you were malicious about the underlying terminology migration (as opposed to the ahistorical hubris) I’m calling you out-of-touch and I mean it insultingly.

If you weren’t malicious I don’t mean it insultingly but you still lack the most recent context.

Unfortunately I don’t have studies to hand but people prioritizing the medical care of others (under strict set conditions) over their own is a verifiable pattern afaict (Set conditions include: if the others are non-resented and/or temporary dependents; if the thing the person is experiencing isn’t overwhelmingly acute such that they aren’t thinking about anything else; etc.)

I shouldn’t rando into someone’s mentions about it

but let the record show

that today I saw someone saying they’ve never encountered mobilization for systematized content labeling (i.e. tags) for non-transformative media (e.g. books) And there’s only one thing I can say to that in good conscience, given who I am and what I’m known for:

You are like a little baby. Watch this.

Going through Chrome and I’ve apparently had “Torture, Necessity, and Supreme Emergency: Law and Morality at the End of Law” open in a long-forgotten tab for…



…long enough that I can’t blame @ActualHetaTrash but also the subject means I want to…? Like this is in fact the kind of thing I read for fun but I have no fucking idea what I intended to use it for, this is not as linear as bat collagen…

A thing I found out last year while bombing off of medication I didn’t want that didn’t work is that if I find a doctor willing to do the job my insurance will still never cover pain relief lasting over three hours or so.

I’m still wondering whose idea of harm reduction that is. And on that note #cripthevote

People who refer to me by a name other than the one I gave them upon introduction go in the nonrecyclable trash bin that’s just how it works I don’t understand where the impulse comes from or who could possibly find it appropriate.

I tolerated people shortening Alexander because I will deign to respect belief that four syllables is a lot—so that’s why I stopped using my middle name. You’re welcome.

Me: ...My eye itched. So I was scratching it. With your... ribs.
Martin: *sighs* *pets my headscarf* If I’m gonna be a useless homosexual who’s mostly burning all esfuerzo I’ve got on doctors who don’t work to the point where I’m losing English

Then at least I can show you, the gay

I dislike the fact that it would require exporting real-world racism to space. Even without the SW teams having proven that they’re not good at doing that sort of thing with the hideously clumsy handling of artificially introducing then erasing homophobia. The Order are part Wild Space/Outer Rim recruits part Imperial remnants and their kids. For them to be white as a new pack of Tomoe River requires that come from somewhere. The majority of the Empire is or was the Old Republic in new uniforms. It would have to come from there.

1. Second time in a month a bus driver accused me of faking disability to save $1.50 #cyride
2. “May I sit down or would you like me to overpay?”
“/May I sit down or would you like me to overpay?/“
“Well, I was hoping you would sit down—“
K, Monarch of Competence, SAY it. On the one hand it would be awesome if @kcmetrobus would, like, Not do this, and on the other hand I keep not reporting it out of fear they’ll side with the driver. 🙃

I did fine as soon as I found out no one was going to come out of the sky and strike me dead but that took until late middle school/early high school. And the first narrating/main character male self-insert I wrote is highly notable for having a stereotypical abuse-revenge plot of the type that ex. Tarantino is being dragged for as something that should’ve been a red flag, which he’s then punished by the narrative for.

Both my remaining Tweetbot drafts on this account are about my willingness to stick things in my mouth, why do I feel like I have something to prove here Somehow I doubt I actually come off so dignified online that you doubt me on this, ya feel

On the other hand, I can’t think of any other adult autistics I have seen talk about the human emotion of It Go In Mouth publicly

And that’s of interest

29 (Ren’s born after the Battle of Endor. If you want someone born 0 ABY you’re looking for Hux. Insert the thing where I start screeching about how much of a generational difference four years in the right place can make and what that’ll do to the nuclear pile fire command.)
