gender stuff 

as a nonbinary AMAB person with no plans to transition on a chemical level, there’s something oddly affirming about hearing AFAB people’s plans to transition…

I guess at some point as a teenager I internalized that everything ostensibly “male” about my body was undesirable

but hearing people excitedly talk about how they want to have a deeper voice and stuff like that really helps dispels that illusion. (and seeing them achieve those goals is always wonderful!)

this doesn’t really affect the way I see my gender identity so much as how I feel about my body. I’m still not sure I’d say my body accurately represents me, but I’m learning to appreciate what there is to like about it

streaming gamedev

I have no idea how to talk to people. I have no idea what to say to people who are hurting. I often don't say anything at all cause I worry my idiot self will just make it worse.

So just. In a general sense. Everyone struggling. Hurting. Tired. Confused. Anything. Anyone.

I'm rooting for you.

rambling gender thoughts 

I described my gender to someone (who admittedly thinks I’m cis) as being “like a Mr. Saturn” and honestly in retrospect it holds up as a metaphor

mr. saturns are nominally related to masculinity but also are technically genderless and on top of that socialize in idiosyncratic ways

yet they’re not wholly unique/alone, there are other mr. saturns our there, which makes their idiosyncrasies read more like a gender than individual personality traits

I could write a whole article about all the hilarious optimizations I'm doing to remain under PICO-8's token limit

Dear white, male, cis, straight allies in tech: We need you out there de-radicalizing your racist, sexist techbros friends and coworkers (who are much more likely to listen to you than any of us) more than we need your code. Thank you.

People talk like blocking fascists automatically turns any space into an "echo chamber". The fediverse we've built up over the years is proof of the contrary. I've learned and grown through this place. I've been able to apply that knowledge in real life. We've got something real here, and I think it's with fighting to preserve.

are there any programming languages that coerce nil to 0 when you try to do arithmetic to it?
