If you think queer liberation is only about us queers, you are not seeing the whole picture.

The goal of freedom to express ourselves, free from judgement and threats, applies to all human beings.

This is not only about the freedom of who to fuck, not fuck or have agency over our bodies and identities, it is about liberating society from the unspoken restrictions and norms that govern all our lives, queer or not.

We humans created this, we can tear it down again.

I HOPE YOUR CHAIR HAS GROWN OVER WITH #MOSS

I HOPE A PLEASANT BUT UNOBSERVED BEAM OF LIGHT HITS YOUR DESK PERFECTLY THROUGH THE COLLAPSED CEILING

Emotional stuff, war related 

After the war in Ukraine started, I became a silent Internet visitor. I'm haunted by the feeling that I don't have the right to speak out and exist in the open spaces of the network. And if I do something, I have to have a multi-page report of excuses. I did nothing wrong and I did everything that was required of me as a citizen all these years. But that doesn't mean anything.

It feels fucked up.

Gonna play some D&D for the first time in my life tomorrow! I'm so excited, you have no idea!

Hate it when I show someone something I've made and their response is "Why?"
Because it's cool! Because I had fun making it! "Why" do you need a reason for doing anything at all? Do what you enjoy, you don't need an ultimate goal with everything.

"No. This is somewhere to be. This is all you have, but it's still something. Streets and sodium lights. The sky, the world. You're still alive."

Spent the whole day yesterday helping my mother's friend in a garden. It was good, the weather was great, not too cold, not too warm. I like to run away from my computer and dig into ground with my hands.

my gods have been buried under the concrete and tarmac,
with every crack in the pavement they rear their heads to gaze towards the sun,
as flowers

as somebody who worked in tech but got fed up w it, i'm loving the return to basics i see, open protocols, no ads, personal static sites, linux, low-res, webrings, small communities... appropriate technology and "Small Is Beautiful"...

Me: Yay! Weekend! Time to party!
Also me: Goes to a forest to feed squirrels. Reads a book until it ends. Watches video of people playing TTRPG for three hours straight.

What are some of the daily practices which help to keep you feeling balanced and healthy?

Three of mine that come to mind are practicing qigong each morning, going for a bike ride or walk in the afternoon and taking a cold shower in the evening.

listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

what did you eat today. did you see any cool bugs
