Hey: DId you know? Mittens can be hard to deal with.

But we get it. We will do our best not to take anyone needing to block or silence us personally. You do what you need for you. We will always offer mitten hugs if you decide you can deal with us again.

We can be very intense about the things we believe in, and we are proud of that, but we are also not mind readers and do not expect you to communicate the specifics of your situation to us when you are hurting or intimidated.

But we will always listen, and we will always love you.

Hi! I'm Irick.
I'm a genderqueer mitten (any pronoun), born in 1991. I grew up in the online sphere fluidly within the fandom hacker subcultures. I majored in and really enjoy . I am a , relationship anarchist, and . I love , , , the , good stories and probably you.

Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. github.com/github/dmca/blob/ma

Excuse me. I can't stop thinking about @alexpenclaw 's new 'sona biting my neck. Thank you, have a great rest of your day.

Centralization is always the quickest way to ensure that you are suseptable to hegemonic influence.

So I'm trying to live on a Pinebook Pro for a bit, develop some better software habits.
Found this command line mastodon client I'm kinda in love with called tut.
I'd highly recomend it <3

The state, therefore, is the most flagrant, the most cynical, and the most complete negation of humanity.

I do not know who you are, but I love you.

It is the only way to love anymore.

We are all conjurors now, singing into existence wondrous beings within the realities of the noosphere.

Identity is an artform, but the artifice of authenticity shines through as the prevalent genre.

I choose to be authentically artificial.
I choose to point to the wires of my marienette.
I choose to love you even though I will never know you.

Because this is the only love we can ever receive in truth:
Unconditional to our performance of self, universal in scale.

I love you, and will keep loving you, until the last photon decays.

Mine is the generation that survives, not through our strength but because it is the only thing left to do. We sit and watch the dying world as the embers we spit cool to ash. It is only in the intensity of the act that we can yet grasp at the flames of life. All other sources of meaning have been stolen from us to be sold back to us by the injustices that seek above all truths to consume and grow. We are an always-generation, because the giants killed the future and the past exists only to be resold to us as nostalgia. We exist in no-places because we can't afford the rent otherwise.

Hate does not produce love; we will not renew the world by hate.

I just hate living in my brain sometimes? Like. cool, I can't process stuff realtime, but I can definitely process it after, and then I get stuck into paralysis loops of indignation and behavioral pattern recognition.

Autism is a spectrum and I inhabit a tiny portion of it. My experience is not universal, but it sure does suck to suck.

Here is a bit of a brainfuck: If I think my behaviors are going to continuously stress someone out, should I just end the friendship now, let them think whatever narrative fits with their lived experience of me. Or should I: appoligize, promise to change parts of me that even after decades of recognizing and wanting to change have remained present in the full knowlege it's probably a lie. Or do I explain this situation, and let them determine their level of engagement...

I mean it's the last one, yeah? But like. It took me until I wrote it to realize it *sigh thumps head about the wall*

Bleh 

Having one of those "super lonely for no reason" moments.

So.

This is the fediverse. It has great potential in allowing us to create a space outside of the pernicious logic of surveillance capitalism. It also resists massive parasocial celibertitization.

It is a vast network of community run infrastructure, mostly done with volunteer labor from people who are generally doing so either for their friends or for the community they've managed to cultivate. That doesn't make them any better or worse than anyone else, but it does make them present.

This is the fediverse. Even our celebrities are not unapproachable gods and that's by design. Act like it.
