This is a really good article about #SuperStraight and The Insidious Discomfort With Trans Women In Public Space | by Kat Blaque |

I, among a bunch of other people, encouraged her to publish it somewhere after she started a conversation on her community page on YouTube. I'm so happy I now have an article to share with you all.

Any Visual Novel fans around? 

I'm working on a Cyberpunk #visualnovel (very nsfw - there will be explicit scenes) and would appreciate having some followers / beta testers for quality assessment.

boosts appreciated! :blobcatmeltthumb:

Today I published my first video game (you might have seen the 2D version of this; that was a prototype). It's a chill cross-country skiing game. It's multiplatform and free, check it out!

It's not about speed and racing, but about enjoying the moment and being in nature. It has controller support (including vibration!) and a "night mode" to ski at night.

Shout out to @godotengine for the amazing engine + IDE + community 😄

Oh hi!

I wrote a dark but sweet fantasy novel of libraries and necromancy.

It would be amazing if you shared this post around.

Is there a website, or art project, aimed at people trying to break a corporate social media addiction, reassuring them that they're not crazy for opting out and offering other resources for connection during a pandemic?

The equivalent of the manipulative "your friends will miss you!" landing page when deactivating Facebook, except in reverse.

(looking for something emotional, not logical. the logic isn't the hard part.)

Really grateful to Natalie Lawhead for sharing this experience. I feel much less alone. (I was believed and my abuser is no longer in a position to hurt newbies... but the aftermath has been brutal and dehumanizing to everyone. The truth is, to most people, your sexual trauma is porn. And that prevents people from speaking up, and is not okay.)

US culture, outsider 

In US culture, personality is immutable.
Growing up isn't about building something, it's about building who you have been anyway. You just have to "follow your heart". And here, heart means soul, in the most permanent way possible.
You are what you are, you will always be what you are, deep down.
You can't change

US culture, outsider 

Think about it, in so many US movies containing a character with amnesia, most of mainstream will have the fundamental characteristics of that character won't change.
They're closest friend will still recognise some "typical" thing about them

US culture, outsider 

I'm not of US culture, but I've grown watching and hearing a lot of it through a lot of media. Mainly mainstream shit

And one thing I just realised:
I hate how it is so essentialist


something very relevant to white people on the fedi 

"If you follow all the prescriptions of checking your privilege, unpacking your invisible knapsack, centering the marginalized, and excavating your deeply held white supremacist notions, you will absolutely positively have to break up with actual white people.

"You will love many of those white people. You will be related to some of them. You will, one day, be faced with seeing “whiteness” not in ideas but in people."

Hi all, I'm new so here's my #introduction/ #introductions.

I'm a 26 year old #artist who specializes in digital #art and #illustration. I like drawing weird plants and environments. I tend to spend hours painting the same details over and over again with tiny brushes.

The creative world can be pretty tough so I'm looking forward to hanging out with you all and helping each other survive/grow.

Sorry about the redraft, I noticed a sentence error and it bothered me.

Can anyone actually point to any recent cases of Google innovating and creating anything new without massively dropping the ball and abandoning it?

Like I hate Microsoft but they seem to be capable of creating new things and making them work well sometimesss. Google just seems to be a massive blackhole that sucks talented people into a cursed structure that miraculously nullifies the potential of thousands of incredibly intelligent, driven people.

Asking for a friend: can anyone name some examples of IF that work well for oral performance? Should:

* have a strong in-character narrator
* not be too long
* be light/comic

I'm trying to help my non-techy friends get to grips with using #element and to find #matrix chat rooms to join.

Here's a blog post which attempts to list a bunch of servers and public rooms.

Please, check it out, share it, and if you use Matrix - join some rooms.

as a person who works on internet technology and social network stuff my main advice for getting out of a productivity rut is to turn off the internet and social networks for a bit occasionally

Also: wow. Getting into the mindset of a severely depressed teenager made the whole early part click, but... I did not anticipate how much time and energy I'd need to detox, and remind myself that I haven't been a depressed teenager in a long time. (Even being a depressed adult is a million times better than being a depressed teenager. Adults have options and agency and things.)

Wrote some final scenes needed for Part 3 over the last few days; now starting on the rewrite of Part 4!
