I'm a 29 years old cis man. Demisexual and demiromantic crybaby. Had a tough break up with my boyfriend this past summer. With all the chaos happening on #Tumblr this december, a certain blogger recommended queer.party, so I came to hang out. I like #games! I played a lot of video games growing up, but would like to get more in to table top gaming. I like RPGs, minis, cards and board games alike.

Seriously though, this is the same reason I object to advertising. You are not fucking entitled to my mental bandwidth.

People: BUT IF I CW NO ONE WILL READ MY POST!!!!
me, sitting back in an armchair smoking a cigar: Shut the fuck up sonny jim and cw.
I thought the last section of this course, concerning Sweden's official minority languages, would be the easiest, but this is quite heavy reading. I need a break. The sun is shining brightly and I am reminded of last years spring, which I spent lovingly hanging out with my then soon-to-be, now "ex", boyfriend. Sigh...
I was just made aware of an open source, peer-to-peer video hosting service which seems really neat, called diode.zone:
(thanks for the follow, @scanlime !)
Looks like they posted the video of the interview I did a little while back with Euronews Turkey. Really happy with how it came out :)
(The questions are in Turkish but my replies are in English.)
You are not obligated to relieve the anxiety white people have about their conflict of being direct beneficiaries of a wholly destructive and violent culture. That is not your issue to resolve.
I have no problem with putting in the work to help anyone de-construct whiteness so we can speak as fellow humans and acknowledge the beauty of what that is. That is noble work.
Making white people feel better about what they know is wrong isn't. That is their journey. They have to resolve that.
antisemitism/philosemitism/tolkien Show more
tolkien's dwarves were based on Jews and are a perfect example of how philosemitism is still really antisemitic.
paradoxically, i love dwarves and was somewhat flattered to learn they were partially based on Jews, even if there's obviously ENORMOUS PROBLEMS with the qualities he ascribes to dwarves like greed, or with the fact that dwarves weren't supposed to exist but Eru Iluvatar decided to let them anyway, etc.
genitals, trans vocabulary, wordplay Show more
If a girl's "cock" is called a hen, is a boy's "pussy" called a tom?
first aid for hearing trauma, police Show more
This is a good opportunity to talk about first-aid to protect against hearing loss:
If you have been exposed to sound pressure levels sufficient to cause pain or ringing of the ears you need to wear earplugs for the next couple of days.
Your ears are extra fragile following trauma so everyday noise can become dangerous until your ears have recovered. Avoid headphones at all costs for a few days, even if you normally listen at reasonable levels.
I just discovered Pokémon Crystal Clear, a ROMHACK that turns Crystal into an open world-game, and may I say that this is amazing? You can choose from tons of starters, including Pikachu and Eevee, and baby Pokémon such as Tyrogue or Smoochum, or for you challenge runs, why not Ditto or Smeargle? Visit gyms in any order (difficulty of each trainer scales up with your Badges earned) and conquered gyms can be re-challenged at higher levels. This is quality content 😍
Jim. He/Him pronouns. 29 years old. Demisexual and demiromantic video game nerd. I just arrived from Tumblr!
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
