So... I had to move to a new instance on account that my old one has been broken for several days with no sign of our admin. To be honest, I've been wanting to join a Jewish instance for a while now but inertia kept me where I was.
No choice now.
Other than being irredeemably Jewish I'm also nauseatingly queer, butch, and trans. I am a volunteer street medic and a photographer.
9/11 discourse, subtoot
It's one thing to criticize the way 9/11 serves as a nationalist icon. It's one thing to criticize the way the United States used 9/11 to engage in wonton imperialism. It's another thing to meme on the deaths of thousands of innocent people like what the fuck is wrong with you?!
Caught between wanting to block everyone who can't be bothered to tag their lewd/horny posts and not wanting to isolate myself from half the fucking fediverse.
Yes. It needs a fucking content warning and no you are not the arbiter of what is and is not "bad enough" to need one it's clearly not for you.
Today has not been a good day.
So, let’s say tech people are samurai.
Samurai were more than a class. They were a magisterium. That word is often used for priests, but also scientists, scholars, doctors... A magisterium is a professional class marked by obfuscation. Unlike aristocracies, magisteria do things. They rule practically more than legally. You can’t get around a magisterium if you want things. They hold purse and authorize movement. Magisteria pretend to merit whilst enforcing loyalty.
Tech is magisterial.
GRS discourse, creepy
As an asexual enby I think it's actually super creepy that the only options available when it comes to getting GRS involve a surgeon going out of their way to sculpt something that is socially understood as fuckable.
What if I don't want to be sexual at all? Hope come I gotta choose between two different types of boinky bits?! I'd really like to opt out thanks.
Sitting here thinking to myself about how much is love to be a rabbi but there are so many obstacles if have to overcome to get there and it's a huge commitment that would take years and a hell of a lot of work and honestly not an insignificant amount of money and...
... and then my brain is like "you could just become a Messianic" and now I'm pissed at brain.
I still can't get over how good a motto "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly" is when you're suffering from executive dysfunction or physical disabilities
Like, of course it's awesome to thoroughly clean your place once a week or biweekly but if the mere thought of it is causing you to break down, vacuuming for five minutes is so much more than doing nothing
It's the best piece of advice I got in what feels like forever
You can't say I made you gay if you've never even been to the mikvah!
