The first version of the terminal-based plural notes utility is usable! The code is not the cleanest (didn't honestly expect it to be pretty since it's our first time programming in... years, and in a totally unfamiliar way), but it's fully functional. No encryption yet, but everything else about it is working. Runs on Linux for sure, no clue about anything else.

Identity is a junkyard full of odds and ends that you cobble together into something that looks cohesive but is really made of three teacups, a t-shirt, and a pet raccoon that you managed to fit in there somehow.

We're not looking to find a ready made identity. We're digging through the parts bins looking to kitbash personalized identities.

going back to campus after break like. "boy we're glad we can be alone finally" but also "oh no we're alone again"

We're alright, just stuck in identity re-evaluation hell like usual. Comes out better every time at least!

Summary: parts language is surprisingly comfortable and actually increased internal communication, which is interesting. Language choice matters. Some of us are parts. A comparatively small number of us are people. Defining the difference is hard, but using their preferred language is important to hearing everyone and working as a team.

Perpetual plural mood: mucking around in identity screwiness trying to figure yourselves out. Again.

We emerge from the Posting Hole yet again, like the little lurking goblins we are. Hello world!

Nonbinary women and men are real and are still very much nonbinary people, too.

Genders can be partial, mixed together, absent, and more, and those genders can include "man" or "woman."

A nonbinary woman is a nonbinary person somehow related to womanhood and vice versa. A nonbinary man is a nonbinary person somehow related to manhood and vice versa.

Nonbinary-ness can take so many forms, which is a fact that is fascinating and worthy of celebration.

Amusing Twitter thread:

"Scott Williams Penguin - @vwbusguy
Why don't us longtime Linux users start livestreaming ourselves trying to install and use Windows and MacOS and highlighting all the annoying things as we go, especially 3rd party software oddities?"

“Although known to be inaccurate, particularly for people of colour, Body Mass Index (BMI) is used across NHS and private medical services to determine eligibility for life-changing surgeries. Since the metric can be the deciding factor for access to top surgery or genital operations, you’d expect it to be applied consistently across health services. But contradictory application of BMI requirements is commonplace.”

I'm not an "x on the driver's license" nonbinary.
I'm a "remove gender from any documentation that doesn't need it" nonbinary.

You ever come across a song that just goes and rips emotions out of you? Like it goes into your brain room of bottled up emotions and just starts smashing bottles, making direct eye contact the entire time.
