I'm a fox. I don't know entirely what it means, but it's real.

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."

@IceWolf nah the idea that you can give reasons is a fake-ass cultural expectation that comes from either people trying to rationalize their emotions or hoping to assuage insecurities.

@starkatt I thought I was supposed to be able to, and it was a failing not to be able to come up with any concrete reasoning...

@starkatt *blinks* so THIS is why I can /never/ explain to people why I like them when they get angsty about it!

In other words, if you ask me why I love someone, I will never be able to tell you in a way that makes sense.

It's easier to conceptualize relationships when you let go of the expectation that love for someone arises out of some combination of positive traits.

Willem Van Spronsen was killed by police a year ago today for attempting to disable the fleet of buses that serve the Northwest Detention Center, a private immigration detainment facility in Tacoma, Washington.

I know Iโ€™ve posted this here before, but I was reminded of it.

Fox laser!

I'm a bit unsettled by pervasiveness with which podcasts about serious topics are also comedy.

The idea of combining dark subjects and comedy is fine with me.

What I don't like is the idea that comedy is obligate to gain and maintain a following in certain media environments.

If anyone is wondering what I've been up to, I've spent the last 3 weeks staring at this extract from a 1982 interview of Michel Foucault and steadily losing my fucking mind
