My day job got eliminated. The vet bills from recent livestock losses have put our family farm behind on the mortgage. We're facing foreclosure and eviction. I'm offering this shirt for $600 including USA shipping, originally priced at $900 plus shipping. If the shirt is out of your reach, please boost. I have links below.

My game board mouth = My wife's Call of Duty mouth
😂

Spent NYE playing new games. This is Fool's Gold. It was fun. We also played a samarai game. It was... Let's just say it was hard.

Drew my wife's half-orc monk, Lotus. She wanted Merida hair. Pencil and colored pencil.

I did for a Warlord cover pic. It's supposed to be like a chess piece dragon knight...

Pedophile mention 

Can I just say how nice it is to use the and not have to worry so much about pedos? But putting it in the content warning makes me feel skeezy (is that a word?). That's all some people are going to see of this post 😅

I've been saying this but get hobbies, be HORRID at those hobbies. Don't worry about being bad, you're gonna be bad at atleast one thing and that's okay. It's okay to be bad at hobbies as long as they make you happy. I have things I love and when I'm depressed I WANT to fight that depression so I can do what I love. I write poetry, music, stories, I play games and write plays and design costumes and plan RPGs and I like to sew and alter clothes and make things. Be yourself, and unashamed.

I realized I misspoke before: I'm not looking to be "inclusive." I'm looking to not be offensive with the characters I choose. I want a trans woman, but don't want her to offend trans women. I want an overweight character, but not offend to overweight people. I want black characters, but not offend to black people (like Mr Popo from DBZ has been said to be offensive). I think my brain wrap around this easier. It's closer to randomness than checking off boxes. More why not, than why.

Alcohol 

Any non-purists know if this tastes any good? Might be a good additive to Christmas recipes.

It's almost time for Christmas game night! shown, but I think it was actually from NYE.

Ok, I think I might have learned enough for today. I'm tired of taking notes for now.

Jrpg Follow-up: is one line identifying a trans character as trans enough? The entire rest of the game, the character functions as their chosen gender. Gender specific equipment of only the chosen gender can be equipped, never an instance of wrong pronouns used even when in gender neutral equipment. Is that enough representation? I want to be inclusive (so I have to let it be known they are trans), but I just want them to be able to go about their lives.

Smarter people than me have said this more articulately, but it bears repeating:

Anyone who claims to be pro-woman, yet thinks womanhood is dependent on genitals or chromosomes is buying into a repackaged version of the same bullshit that's been used to oppress women for so long.

slurs, transphobic 

JRPG, manga, etc., have certain tropes. In the future, I would like to have a trans character. Is it offensive to say "I'm not a 'trap,' I'm trans." ? I'm not sure if "trap" is the right trope, but just imagine if the correct terms are used. What if it was never ever mentioned again in the game that they were transgender? I feel truly ignorant in this arena, but want people represented.
EDIT: not a Q of if a slur, Q is it empowering to address it or damaging to do so?

Hmm, which search should I use to learn about now that I've decided to use the engine?

Remember, you can't search by text on Mastodon, except in your own timeline. That's so harassers can't just find people to attack via a simple search.

Therefore it's important to use hashtags so people can find your stuff, assuming you want them to.
