ForkOff/Together Update #6
The Meeting will have a public invite, as well as email invites.
I do recommend that you help each other find out the details about this. I will try to keep them concise and add the relevant info to this update thread.
I will only reach out in DMs to people about it from a diversity perspective. My main concern will be reaching out to more PoC to help diversify this work group we're about to start.
As it will be a public invite, you can invite anyone you want.
My heart hurts so very much right now. It's what I get for loving too fast, and too strongly, but it still hurts just the same.
If you're out of the loop, here's the full evolution of what I'm talking about: https://social.wxcafe.net/@sendoshin/100110853032940539
This is a record speed for me. 😓
@sendoshin Aaaaand got my hopes up way too far.
Gained a friend, which is awesome!
Didn't gain a partner.
So, y'know, disregard all the above.
Just shy of starting the second dose of E. Kinda expected more in the way of psychological effects already, but I'm not sure why. It's only been three days, after all.

I no longer have an account on i.write.codethat.sucks ... This happened without warning, so I don't have my archive, or even my followers list so I can tell folks to relocate. If you know somebody who was following my account there, and still wants to follow me elsewhere, please let them know to look for me here.
And no flaming the admin(s) of IWCTS. The decision was without warning, but it wasn't unwarranted. I hope the instance continues to thrive!
Hey y'all, I hate to do this again but money is a bit tight right now due to multiple bouts of mental health stuff going on and a recent incident I've been on and off work for a while now and have burnt my savings. Fees for my next batch of meds will be coming through soon and after that I'm boned till I can sell some stuff.
If you can spare it, any amount of money would be greatly appreciated.
You can also buy lewd pics of me here (NSFW link):
trans gatekeeping, binarism, metadiscussion of phobias,
Hey, I'm looking for a nonbinary (transfemme and/or intersex are a plus but not really necessary) person who has started HRT in Austria because I think I want to do it but I don't know enough about it and also my severe not-even-vaccinated-against-anything needle phobia makes me feel like it's pretty much impossible for me.
Still a few responses trickling in, but now that nearly all of them are variations of "shut up, you're wrong", I'm gonna post a link and go back to working on my own projects for a while. I strongly encourage everyone, on every side of this "debate", to read it through, and actively consider the lived reality of those involved.
What you do from there is your business.
PSA and reminder:
The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Please use "blocklist" and "allowlist" instead.
Yes, the terms are old. Yes they're not directly based on race. But they _are_ based in the systemic idea that "white == good; black == bad". Just because something is traditional doesn't mean it's acceptable.
It took me a while to see just how insidious little things like this are, too. It's ok to take some time to understand. Just please switch terms while you do.
