mh, dysphoria, theory applied to life Show more
Who could have guessed that roughly 10 years after figuring out that I was probably suffering from dysphoria, I would have finally (unsuccessfully) tried everything to control it except transitioning, including Toughening Up, The Position That Gender Is Not A Thing, and I Can Define Myself As Whatever I Want.
Spoiler: sex/gender is a social construct. Turns out other people's opinions and actions apparently matter.
Also, please send help.
Assange, mention of sexualised violence Show more
My hot take on the #Assange arrest thing is this; I think Assange seems to be an overall unpleasant person and a clown, and that WikiLeaks have gone completely off the rails a long time ago.
I also think that he obviously should be persecuted on the charges of rape and obviously not persecuted for whatever the US is allegating, and would happily walk in a march for both of these cases.
@Alexis Yes, it is technically true that I have bombed all my planes with cream cheese, as it happens!
@Alexis I know for a facts hard cheeses work fine though, but they did get me an extra search at the security scan thing. Apparently, they look like "something you should not say out lout at an airport".
@Alexis I once got in trouble for peanut butter, but I think that might have been in Italy
@Alexis wait, it doesn’t outside of the EU?!
@Linuxtjej this is incredibly sweet
@lynnesbian This is An important motivation for banning corporate-run infrastructure I think
@monkeyborg it’s also a place where literal space and time is extra bendy and it’s possible to literally not know what day it is or (technically) which country one is in.
@some_qualia I've built several computers and taken an advanced course on computer architecture and I don't know either. As far as I understand, not much has happened in the last few years though as Intel messed up, so it's probably a good idea to but a two-three year old really high end CPU and hope for the best.
My girlfriend is spending the next half year literally on the other side of the planet, so I made a chocolate calendar of sorts to count the days until she returns https://octodon.social/media/1DnGigli03HlOPP14qU
I'm a bit worried about Bandersnatch, not because of the choose your own adventure model or anything (I think that's in the range between fun and a very good idea), but because one can imagine the same without choice, i.e. a TV series that uses data on the viewer's preferences to show them similar things to what they have already seen, which I think runs a very real risk of empoverishing culture (even more).
