"making the best of every day" is not about the peaks

it's about the valleys

it's resting, it's healing, it's nourishing

it's collecting tomorrow's spoons

Hi, I'm Rey, a polyamorous, postfurry, queer as fuck, non-binary trans catgirl and/or foxenby (... I think?).

I am an engineer, the sort who makes embedded hardware do cool things. I was the founder of vulpine.club. I like glowy dance, big bass, and hot enbies.

I drive Lezbaru, a '09 Outback. We've been through some shit together.

I am currently learning to live with #fibromyalgia (diagnosis pending), and I use #cannabis and #shitposting to make it through each day.

I am in #Rochester normally, #Boston regularly, #Seattle occasionally.

I am made of love. It's stronger than you.

Hey ,

This is my last message as an admin of vulpine.club.

It began as a weekend project, something cool to play with, to fill up time between jobs.

Then others showed up. And we became friends. And we became a community.

We built a decidedly queer space, atop radical acceptance and boundaries and consent and respect and love.

What started as a novelty became a safe space, a judgement-free place for self-exploration, for myself and for so many others.

This was the first community where I was Rey, 100% of the time. This was the first community where I've felt *normal* for being into the things I'm into, for loving folks like I do, for being _me_.

But at some point, it began to feel like v.c was usurping my identity. Being "Rey, the Vulpine Club admin" became awkward and uncomfortable. This isn't who I *am*... I am so much more.

I've also struggled with the conflict between having responsibility for the safety of this community, and being in personal intimate relationships with a substantial part of it.

So, I figure it's time to turn in my badge and pun, and leave things in the paws of the best admins, mods, and friends I could leave y'all with: Sariya and Clara.

I love you all. You are such beautiful and amazing critters. Thank you for being here with me <3

P.S. I'll still be around, you betcha

Engineers and furries both in my experience are absolute dorks. Combine the two and the silliness grows exponentially.

Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.

"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."

In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.

This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%
