I guess I'm lucky: I've only been misgendered twice since growing my hair out. Before I grew a beard one girl came up to me and asked, "Are you a boy or a girl?" I wanted to ask her, "Does it matter?"

Don’t point people to videos for them to learn Unixy stuff. In fact just stop making those videos.

Toxic masculinity. Does that mean all masculinity is bad? No! Not at all.

This comic explains it fairly well. The term Toxic Masculinity is from Social Sciences, to help explain certain problems in the current image of Masculinity, which hurts both men and women.

Figured I'd post some pictures of Freyja I took last week when messing around with my camera on a tabletop tripod. These are the JPEGs created by the camera that reflect what I saw on the viewscreen. I had it set to monochrome for scene composition, so that's why they're in black-and-white.

I also have the raw NEF files of these pictures, and I'll toot those after I process them. Those will be in color.

It doesn't help that my DSL modem manufacturer wants to treat IPv6 like IPv4 by requiring NAT in order to use IPv6.

if you’re ever feeling down and unmotivated, i’m cheering for you. yes that’s me outside your window with the pom poms. no, i won’t leave, and no i don’t care if you’re calling the police. i’m getting closer every passing moment. your heart is pounding with fear and you’re checking the locks on your windows and doors in panic

Ohhh.... This is a good one:

Why Americans Get Socialism and Capitalism Backwards

If Capitalism Made People Rich, and Socialism Made People Poor, Why Did Americans End Up Broke, Powerless, and Exploited?

May we all likewise have a quiet, calming presence and a comforting line to someone we trust in the coming year.
