Pinned toot

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.

Assemble the feline army. It's time we created the cat choir.

Style goals: patterned button-up shirts, a colorful maxi skirt, weird socks, sparkly headscarf, a silky cloak, 3 meter levitation height, a mouth with too many teeth, wickedly clawed fingers, horizontal pupils, and super cute belts with charms on them so it's like a charm bracelet but as a belt (doesn't that sound cute? I think it's cute)

Changing and updating the labels you associate with yourself is good, actually! Never stop learning and discovering things about yourself!

It feels weird when art tutorials approach "how to draw boys!"/"how to draw girls!" as if they're different species. Certainly study why something looks feminine/masculine to you, but don't let it limit you! #arttips

Ongoing vent song cover art 

Every time we've been distressed in the last month or two, we've made a point of chucking four or eight new bars into a very extended vent song we've been making. It does help, and we get a song out of it.

Figured we should make cover art since the song is going to be finished sooner or later- it's 5 minutes long at the moment and we really need to get polishing so it flows better 😅

Someone here tried to map collective structure (yet again).

It's... yeah, there's a reason we don't usually try to map ourselves. I don't think this is very intelligible for anyone else. At least it looks interesting, and it's fairly accurate for the moment.

Creating a list of queer songs without romance or sex 

So I've been working on making a list of queer songs for aro ace folks and anyone else who would like songs that don't include romance or sex to listen to

I hope it's clear I'm not saying those things are bad, just sometimes it's nice to be able to see yourself in songs that don't have things that don't represent you or make you feel uncomfortable

Asking LGBTQ+ people only:

What's your view of the word "queer" in the context of describing LGBTQ+ people?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

I was not assigned anything at birth. I simply emerged fully formless from the void

bad joke re: the word "meta" 

"What's the meta?"

"Nothing, what's the meta with you?"

Echolalia 

Realized today that repeating the sound of someone's phone ringing or them getting a text to tell them that their phone made noise is a form of echolalia that we do all the time.

Didn't think we do it that much, but a friend asked what echolalia was and we tried to come up with examples and it turns out we use echolalia a heck of a lot more than I thought we did. There's more than just this one case. Kind of an odd thing to figure out.
