FUCK TWITTER, AND I AM DONE WITH EXCUSES
This shit – this shit RIGHT HERE – is why I WILL NOT use Twitter and WILL NOT allow links to Twitter on discords I run – or anywhere else I control, for that matter:

pride month and corporations (clearing the decks)
Here’s something important about Pride and Pride Month and companies showing up at Pride events and all that, something most people don’t know or remember.
Until the 90s, and to a large degree still in the 90s, being “homosexual” meant … [more]Continue reading
popcorn salt annealling is the shit
If you anneal your 3D prints, like, ever, that whole “pack it in popcorn salt” trick works an absolute treat. You still get a little shrinkage on the X and Y, and an even smaller (but borderline) height climb on … [more]Continue reading
They’ve said it themselves so many times: attacking trans people is about breaking up the LGBT alliance and taking us ALL out, one letter at a time.
I keep telling anyone who will listen that the attacks on trans people is very specifically a wedge to break the LGBT alliance and make all of us more vulnerable.

A series of replies from a long and unfortunate conversation (3): hypothetical and unobserved side-effects vs. mass death

A series of replies from a long and unfortunate conversation (2): why do they keep it for themselves?
Second reply in that long and unfortunate conversation referenced last post. This one’s mostly replying to the other person echoing fash/TERF propganda that they’re turning all your kids queer through massive surgical intervention on 12 year olds and eliminating gender … [more]Continue reading
A series of replies from a long and unfortunate conversation (1): it’s the same lies as last time, don’t you remember?
I got into a fight with someone I thought of as a friend – an asshole, but also a friend, in that way that a lot of people have at least one asshole friend in their friend group. I’m not … [more]Continue reading
An update to the project storage system project
So I’ve kind of become unfond of the hang-arbitrary-boxes-to-the-rack system I had developed initially. I mean, it worked! It worked fine! I didn’t have one come down in six months of testing, even just using tape to attach the boxes … [more]Continue reading
