What is postfurry? At the very core, it's a way of approaching what identity means.

Furry has been all about answering the question "what if people can also be animals?"

Postfurry says "okay, we can go even further than that. What if we claim authorial control over every aspect of identity? We're animal-people sure, but that's only a starting point. If the poststructuralists are right and all meaning is negotiable, let's go exploring and write some meanings of our own."

some thoughts on STI (HSV) disclosure 

Hey btw, I think it's generally unreasonable to hold the expectation that folks proactively disclose known positive HSV (herpes simplex virus) status outside of an actual outbreak.

And from the other side, I think it's entirely reasonable for a person to choose not to disclose that status to partners unless it's brought up by someone for whom HSV is specifically relevant.

And if you regularly do a certain act w/o barrier protection with people of unknown status, then definitely don't hold someone who does know their status to a different standard.

me like a month ago: "I think I can get decent marbling without needing to buy a lazy susan or turntable."

me now: "dammit I think I should buy a lazy susan."

plus up your french toast by throwing a whole bunch of cardamom and ground clove in there.

I literally heard of non-fungible tokens as a store of value like less than a week ago and now I'm seeing lots of both jokes and hot takes about them; what's up?

Saw someone refer to Mumford & Sons as "Imagine Wagons" last night and nearly woke up the entire block laughing

> I realized that my excitement about my new hand was mostly about being able to be something other than disabled โ€” a cyborg.... I was in the club now. The self-identified cyborg community is super-chic, all over the internet, and actually celebrated by the media, unlike the regular old disabled community. When did this happen?

๐Ÿค” โ€‹ I wonder if I could use a TIG torch set to an extremely low amperage and too-little shield gas to selectively heat-anodize titanium like using a paintbrush.

Sure, a lot of that is commodification and "black goes with everything". But I think it also reflects our shifting relationship to the pandemic, away from "we can work together to get through this!" and towards "this is just how life is now."

Face masks have shifted away from colorful prints and strongly towards flat black and if I were a little more motivated I'd try to draw out a sociological speculation on the trends at work there.

Capital Punishment, very dark 

@starkatt Or, for that matter, keeping political prisoners you successful framed for serious crimes, or people you just don't actually care were actually innocent, in the worst conditions until you finally feel like killing them? What better way is there to demonstrate a citizen's helplessness at the uncaring hands of the state in an international order where killing your own civilians is expressly permitted? What better propaganda is there for the hopelessness of resistance, than to explicitly demonstrate that if you make enough trouble for the state that they'll torture you for decades, bankrupt everyone you know in lawfare, finally kill you, and that your actual innocence is of no account?

Capital Punishment, very dark 

Thinking about how if the State genuinely wanted to minimize pain and suffering while taking someone's life, a rifle bullet would honestly be a pretty ideal method.

But that's not what the State wants -- it wants the ability to kill people without the act appearing to be violent or motivated by animosity, irrespective of what's actually happening.

Scatterplot of YouTube engineering/cool-projects/fabrication/experiments channels, where one axis is "level of excitement" and the other is "actually knows what the fuck they're doing."

The only person in far top right is Colin Furze.
