Pinned toot

Gonna see if I can pin this to my timeline properly so as people show up they can intro.

So I'm Visi. I'm 25, they/them. I do technical theatre, usually hair and makeup but I've been known to dabble in props n shit also, or costumes sometimes if nobody cares that I hate sergers. I'm a true crime nerd, pokemon go player, and all around human dumpster fire. I host, and do a lot of the day to day shit in the system. I'm here to meet new systems and make friends and such and like? Learn? idk. I've known about us for like 4-5 years now but I've never engaged in a meaningful way with the community as a host, even though some of the others (egg im calling u out) really wanna connect. So yeah. Whaddup guys?

What people think being plural is like: "when u least expect it my Evil Alter will take over and try to conquer the planet"

What it's actually like:

"so, are you gonna go get groceries"

"yeah just give me 15 minutes"

"that's what you said an hour ago"

"Well I don't hear *you* volunteering to do it"

Brain: a shred of financial stability??? Buy clothes.
Me: ok but we own clothes?
Brain: neeeeed

Tech company mention; Health care data 

Therapy is healthcare and should be free.

any time an old person says "you'll get it when you're older" respond to them with "you've gotten too old to understand"

friendly reminder that there is no medical basis for taking hormone therapy away from trans people prior to surgery and this practice is abusive

one of the things i genuinely enjoy about friends in different states and countries is getting to fill in gaps in each others' education system failures because it turns out, every single one of us had information deliberately withheld, erased, ignored, or straight up fabricated by our schools

I have this picture incase I see someone ranting about LGBTQ people on twitter or something. But just incase I dont get to use it for it's intended use here it is for you all to enjoy.

the way they teach you about "non violent movements" in history class is propaganda designed to make you believe that resistance is an intellectual and performative undertaking

they call it adobe photoshop but it's actually made of software and not adobe

who called it a sewing circle and not quilt by association

Exciting news:

In collaboration with AirBnB I am curating and editing a series of stories about disability and travel.

I am looking for pitches from people who have experience traveling with a disability.

This is a PAID opportunity.

Trans/plural culture is hearing someone call you by your real name and having to catch yourself so you don't look like a dork because nobody ever calls you that and it makes you so happy you can't concentrate on the conversation anymore

Why don't my bones stay in their goddamn sockets, a question I ask myself more than I should ever have to.

“Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart”.

— Brian Eno
