it makes me kinda sad that so many games that require heavy teamwork just. neglect users who can't use vc for whatever reason.

like obviously this is future dream/example that probably won't happen, but how would i play mcc? i can't talk with my team in a voice call or any of that :/

or if i wanted to play a game that relays on proximity voice chat? for example, among us with proximity chat? I've literally opened a feature request for the mod that does it, to have text popups or stuff like that so that people without mics can also play, and they just went "out of scope" but it's like. the scope is a mod that allows communication during rounds based on location, it's not out of scope.

ugh. it's just ableism.

Thinking about the fact that our paracosm and internal world bleed together in unexpected ways, and how both are deeply important to our experiences by filling different internal needs (communication and processing, respectively). We don't see a lot of plural folks talk about daydreaming but it's an essential part of our internal landscape, as much so as our own existence.

semi-evergreen vent toot, long (~1750 chars), re: FOSS, :boost_ok:​ 

FOSS is amazing and important. But the FOSS community as it currently stands is toxic to an insane degree.

News flash: Not everyone who uses FOSS programs is technical enough to make their own.

If someone complains about something they find inconvenient or inaccessible about a program they otherwise enjoy using, the correct answer is NOT to respond with "Why don't you just code it yourself?"

To only offer that response is to willingly ignore the fact that plenty of users (ourselves included) don't have the technical know-how to build something so complex, even if they fork your code. Whether intentional or not, you're implicitly gatekeeping so that the only people who can enjoy the same programs you do are the ones who can build their own.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but that's leaving out a HUGE portion of potential users.

If you really do care about FOSS becoming mainstream, then it's in your best interests to make it as accessible as possible to everyone, not just the people who think like you do.

The only way to dismantle Big Tech's de facto monopoly is to work together to find a better solution. And refusing to objectively improve your precious source code is not the way to do that.

And guess what? Thanks to the Steam Deck, soon there's gonna be a bunch of non-techie people trying out Linux. You can't keep gatekeeping forever. If FOSS is to survive, it must adapt. Not exclude.

If you disagree with any of the above, YOU are the problem with the FOSS community. YOU are the reason FOSS isn't mainstream yet.

The block button's right there. Save yourself some time and use it. Nobody wants or needs to hear your rebuttal. Goodbye.

E: I recorded a silly video clip yesterday and I turn our back to the camera in it, with the angle around shoulders, which gives us an angle we don't normally see. it makes us look quite big and wide-chested, like the barbarian in an rpg team.

R. was positively giggly about this 😌 I think to an extent R. as an identity, starting by the name, coalesced as a way to give form to these positive feelings about some traits that are masculine-coded but, like, super hot in women. deep voice, broad back, muscles, bigness. it's a dangerous line to skirt between feeling like a hot sword lesbian and feeling like a guy. but we love danger.

gender feelings are very complicated and floating but at the end of the day we're a pretty masked warrior of love _and_ justice.
