Pinned toot

i reformatted a zine i made earlier this year to post it as a thread.

1)
i was frustrated with the language used to describe gender and how limiting it is as a nonbinary/genderqueer person to use language centered around the gender binary. this is what sprung from that frustration:

If you didn't "thrive" in 2020

And you just "made it through"

You did good, friend

frog :they_them: :goose: boosted

get ready, the "hindsight is 2020" jokes are coming

6) some people asked for a pdf version of the zine. here it is:

frogwatching.itch.io/describin

it's free because i want this resource to be available to everyone. if you like, you can leave a donation. enjoy!

5) if you like this, please share it. if you use the graphs to describe your own gender, tag me if you post about it. i'd love to see how other people experience their gender or lack thereof.

harm reduction art including drug paraphenalia

i really like how it's possible on mastodon to lock an account and still post publicly

Call outs and anti-social empathy thread

1) For a long time I've been pretty pro- the "call-out culture isn't real" camp until I read a book over the summer about trauma and neurobiology that breaks down the concept of something called "anti-social empathy" (I talked about this awhile ago I'm thinking of going through and pinning some old posts so maybe check that later). Anti-social empathy is something literally everyone engages in, but some people operate more from that space than others.

Ok promised explanation on what anti-social empathy is (re: my earlier thread).

1) David Schnarch defines empathy as simply the ability to interpret the thoughts and emotions of another person/creature. This is an inherent ability that everyone has, it is reptilian brain stuff- it's how you look at a snarling dog and know it's a good idea to back off.

Enjoying myself, just to spite all this other bullshit that's happening

I am absolutely gonna read a lot of these anyway, but I sure could use that extra moment to strengthen my heart.

Boosts ok. 💜​ and thank you for helping me.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
