So hey just a request:
if I say something that you know to be untrue or that contradicted something else I said previously, please let me know so that I can reconcile things and disentangle things that are true from things I only wish were true.
I don't want to be an unreliable narrator, and I don't want to fall into some very bad habits and patterns that have been ingrained to me all my life.
I want to be better than that.
Oops I lost my old #introductions post in the last instance fandango but enough has changed I'd might as well make a new one right?
Hi, I'm fluffy! I'm a software engineer by day (working at an HIV research lab as of December, 2018) and in my spare time I make music, games, comics, and bad decisions.
See my bio for various links!
Also http://beesbuzz.biz/about for a somewhat fuller bio I guess.

if anyone gives you condescending shit about affirmative action, just tell them that their entire lives have been "affirmative action" compared to yours. Their lives, their parents' lives, their grandparents lives, their great-grandparents lives have all benefited from drastic cumulative toxic privilege
people opposing even the tiniest band-aids for massive intergenerational physical, psychological, and economic abuse black/brown people have suffered can fuck off
As members of the queer community, polyamory should be counted among the acceptances we demand.
It's true that polyamory is not, by definition, queer. But queer people who *are* poly are punished for it in a way poly cishets simply aren't. We should demand equality in this regard.
If you aren't poly, that's fine. I'm not saying it's the only right way. But we need to demand that we feel safe in our right to defy the concept of a nuclear family.
Three years ago I decided to go full-time as an indie game developer/musician/cartoonist because I was feeling completely burned out. One year ago I gave up on that because I couldn't figure out how to turn that into a stable source of income, and re-entered the job market.
I'm still feeling burned out and completely mentally unfit to be a full-time software engineer, and I'd still rather be making games and music. But now I'm disheartened at that possibility too.
Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Fibro-spoony, queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
