Based on an idea I had last night.
Description: An animated gif (very slow animation, no flicker) shwowing a (mocked up) difficulty selection screen from a video game.
It cycles through "Medium", "Hard", "Impossible", "Skip combat" and "Easy", while the description box to the right says "Play the game as it was meant to be played.", no matter which difficulty is selected.
Original file (not ugly-compressed): https://f.d9.lv/difficulty.gif
Agitating against landlords, posters, large file warning!
It used to be an ad (second image), now it's propaganda!

First image (the propaganda one) is by me, Kirby.

readin study on trans kids +
"we had some 'tomboy' trans girls in the study, just as we had 'tomboy' cis girls."
"This study does show that in fact not all trans girls (or cis girls) want to wear frilly pink dresses or play with dolls. We in fact see plenty of trans kids violating these stereotypes, just as we see cis kids do so,"
my heart is full knowing tht there are trans kids in this study who are being affirmed in their genders and im so hopeful for the world we must build for them
How to avoid drama on the fediverse (part 2):
Stop and think before you reply:
- Does this conversation benefit from my input?
- Am I the best person to speak on this topic?
- Do I have a full understanding of what's being said?
- Is that *really* what's being said right now?
- Do I know and/or understand where the OP is coming from?
If you answer "no" to any of these questions, shhhh.
Important thing for all who can see this.
If someone confronts you on your racism or sexism... that means that they like you enough and trust you enough to hear and listen.
If they didn't think you were redeemable, if they didn't think you were worth it, they would roll their eyes and just avoid you. Block on sight, shut down in conversation.
If we confront you about it, no matter how bruskly it may seem. It means that we legitimately think you are better.
Sorry to post this but we are desperate and the deadline to be gone is closing in so quickly
the prevailing opinion in the open source software sphere seems to be that if the program isn't working properly for you, it's your fault. obviously you were supposed to do X, not Y. obviously you need this installed first. obviously you can't use it like that.
when you work with software, it's very very easy to think that everyone interprets things the way you do. of course the end user is going to know the difference between authentication and authorisation, right? who wouldn't?
the point behind open source is, at its core, accessibility. the code should be accessible to all, and they should all be able to use it the way they like. so why don't we also take the concept of accessibility through understandable language seriously? it's no good having your program be usable on any computer if only some of the target audience can even understand how to use it.
There are several bundles of games on DriveThruRPG that are raising money to help deal with the terrible fires across Australia. My game Rusałka is in the Fantasy Core Settings bundle, along with many others.
Buy some games, do some good in the world.
Transphobia, State Violence Against Minors
This is an emergency. South Dakota is pushing to pass a law that would make affirming trans youth a crime. It is extreme and dangerous. If they succeed, it could start a tidal wave of these horrendous bills. We have already lost trans advocates in South Dakota and we need to lift up our people. Mobilize to oppose HB1057. https://sdlegislature.gov/Legislative_Session/Bills/Bill.aspx?Bill=1057
A zine that I collaborated on is available for (free) download now! Check it out, it's an important subject and I'm really proud of the work that went into this one.

Schick! Es gibt wohl ein brandneues Rechtsgutachten im Auftrag des BMFSFJ zur Auslegung von §45b PStG
Die Kurzfassung ist, dass das Verfahren auch trans Personen offen steht.
