enormous image, basically a blacklight poster 

i picked up 3d modeling again sometime around the new year. i finally got a model i've been working on for weeks to a semi-finished (but untextured and not well lit) state. then i took it into photoshop and made hard-sf stoner art. i guess this is pretty on brand for me. hope y'all are well and safe.

Online toxicity is a real thing, but I feel like some of the rich, professional type people make so much hay out of it is bc online is one area where a poor and disenfranchised person can build up a sort of stand-in for power that rivals their own.

i was in all honesty having kind of a crap mood day, but then one of my coworkers gave me one of @rory 's awesome nonbinary OSM stickers, which mysteriously found its way to Cascadia

thanks so much for designing these, Rory! (you can find the whole set at openstreetmap.org/user/%E1%9A% )

strategy guide for healthcare systems: the basic Good Patient Dance 

i figure that this is something a lot of spoonies already know or have picked up on, but also worth a thread because it's something that people not already on board might really benefit from learning

i can also only write from my own perspective - that of an upper middle class cishet white woman - so this of course gets so much more complicated for many people, and i wish i had easy answers for overcoming that.

language of "divisiveness" is never used to tell the right to stop attacking people, it's always used to tell the left to sit down and let them hurt us

the unspoken reason behind "adulting" as a concept is basically a pandemic of anxiety and depression. it papers over mass amounts of people constantly fighting the urge to /just give up/.

there's a whole host of reasons why being alive right now is exhausting, not the least of which comes down to "the behind-the-scenes domestic labor it takes to participate meaningfully in the world used to be free labor that women were forced to perform."

I want a girl who's in Cybersecurity (CYBERSECURITY!)
I want a girl who wears full face masks (FULL! FACE! MASKS!)
Who's a ghost in the shadows, and an expert at arson,
And was home all day yesterday, if anybody asks,
I want a girl with a short fuse and a looong,
Long rap sheet

i just need to tell the world that @RowanYote is an incredible badass who routinely saves my bacon and, in a million different ways, makes my life better and easier, even when she disagrees with what i'm doing with it. i love you yote <3

how to teach white kids that cops aren't good 

i told my kid that a rule can be bad, and that a rule is bad if it causes you to hurt people. the example of a bad rule i gave was it being illegal in some places to give food to houseless people.

i said that being arrested doesn't mean that you've done something bad, and it typically means that you've broken a rule. so i told her that the job of police is to arrest and punish people who have broken a rule, even if the rule is one that hurts people.

Holy shit. Someone named Isabel Fall took "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" as a writing prompt and produced one of the most fabulous cyberpunk, post-human, trans-human mindfucks I've read in a long time. This is extremely my shit

just some scary facts or whatever 

there's enough food in the world for everyone to be well-fed

there's not enough money in circulation to buy all that food

this is by design

public transit, gender, very petty 

the light rail is undergoing some disruptions during the build-out of the new lines. the previously feminine PA voice, that tells you when the train is coming & asks you to narc on your fellow riders, has been replaced with an angry-sounding white cis male voice, and it's raising my blood pressure.

this is an underreported but widespread phenomenon that needs to be reported on: most cities in america are functionally bankrupt because the lot sizes they build (for, say, big box stores and mcmansions) need more infrastructure investment but generate less taxes than subdivided lots. most "average" suburban infrastructure will take a city 80 years to pay off!

so, basically, the rich are eating us alive here too
