my hot cyberpunk take is i don't think technology is bad
every cyberpunk thing is like "in the future everyone uses VR instead of being in the REAL WORLD, wake up sheeple" but here in 2021 the Real World is a soul sucking corporate hellscape and VR is a safe space with queer people finding each other and forming genuine friendships so idk
maybe technology is actually inherently cool and the part you should hate instead is capitalism turning it into a predatory shitfire
if @randomColorContrasts has shown me anything it's that I seem to prefer AA contrast over AAA, which raises some interesting questions about universal accessibility
e-begging, currently unstable/abusive housing situation; a bit lengthy, sorry, also a little bit of uspol talk
i hate to make this post, but i fear my imminent future might leave me kicked out of the house i'm currently in.
i live with my parents, and they are dangerously conservative to the point where last night, i talked to my mom about how unsafe i feel with the coup that just happened, and she said "well i feel safer knowing the coup happened!", in which when i stormed back to my room, she threatened to unscrew the door knob if i don't keep talking to her.
in the past she threatened to kick me out for not cleaning out my room, and considering that alongside this recent event, i fear things may go downhill extremely quickly.
and regardless of if i get kicked out or not, i still need an emergency plan for in case things get rough and even more abusive than things have been getting; my parents yell and fight all the damn time, and now they're doing it to me more often.
i urge you to NOT donate if you don't have the money to! don't put yourself under pressure if you don't have the funds to support me! but if you do have the funds, i would highly appreciate the donations though, if you have the money for it!
the only funds i will use immediately are funds to get a face mask, since i have lost* my face mask. i may also consider getting a cheap portable computing device (cheap phone or laptop) since, as it stands, my current laptop is in no condition to be used as an actual laptop, and i don't technically own my phone, so that's a big issue if i do get kicked out, i NEED a computer to do any work for my patreon.
the rest will be used for transit and long-term financial support in the future; i know someone who would be willing to temporarily house me should the need to be re-located arise.
*i suspect my mom threw my face mask away behind my back, since she doesn't believe face masks do anything against the coronavirus.
if in the end it turns out i don't need these funds, i will be sure to give the money back to everyone who has donated, you have my word on that.

From Futility Closet:
...2021 is the product of consecutive primes: 2021 = 43 × 47.
It’s the first time this has happened since 1763 (= 41 × 43), and it won’t happen again until 2491 (= 47 × 53).
Results from The International Obfuscated C Code Contest are out, and the winner has a devious program using the Turing-completeness of printf! Yikes.
ableism, fedi, 4/4
It's thinking that any of the above can't apply to you because you're autistic and thus know what every other autistic person should be able to do.
Ableism is expecting of individuals what should be expected of society.

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