morning prayers, April 5, 2021 

i understand,
and i love you.
thank you for trusting me,
and i'm sorry you're in such pain.
but we won't do that yet, because,
as in one of our favorite poems:

This is not all I am.
I [have] something else in mind to do.

at some point, people seem to have decided that “capture a scandump” is too many syllables, and I cannot decide whether my responsibility is to explain that that’s not what “take a dump” means or just to keep my mouth shut

“How can I tell you. How can I convince you, brother, sister that your life is in danger: That everyday you wake up alive, relatively happy, and a functioning human being, you are committing a rebellious act. You as an alive and functioning queer are a revolutionary.”

“Queers Read This” is evergreen, and always a good read, but especially during Pride.

The user preferences type isn’t a modeling of gender (gods know that there’s no good reason to model a person’s actual gender in a system), but also isn’t just a modeling of pronouns or grammatical gender. It’s a bag of declarative grammatical (morphological) properties.

"Do you ever wish you looked like a human?"

thinking about making more of a push for they/them at work, now that i've been out for 3-4 years -- jeez, has it really been that long? -- and fewer of the unqueer need the training wheels of she/her in order to avoid mistaking me for a guy

(this does not apply to fellow queers and transes, with whom i intend to continue using both they+she because i can trust y'all to understand what i mean by it)

"ugh cis guys don't ever put their pronouns/love to jokingly say any" not to dismiss cisnormative cultures and the damage done by all the cis guys who really don't give a shit about pronouns but there is actually a nonzero chance you're harassing a trans woman

i think the answer is INTEGRAL, but as a native English speaker i would never use "?integral" in that context. instead i'd probably go with "intact," or maybe "valid" (for data) or "sound" (for a physical object)...
