In all seriousness, how does anyone actually choose an instance to use and keep using it unless they host their own (especially together as a plural system)? Is it just a matter of posting sporadically on a half dozen instances until one (or a few) accounts gather enough perceived momentum and the others drop away?

Google incorporated alphabet so they could change their motto from "don't be evil" to "evil is just one of our many enterprises."

social anxiety 

oh no we're trying to put together a local plural community

this is terrifying

Moana's frustration at trying to stop yearning for the horizon mirrors the cycle of trying to bury ones gender only to have it keep coming back and hurting us again

She lives her life according to the ideals of her rather who teaches her that it's impossible to shape her genetic legacy!

Trinity: My name's Trinity.

Neo: *The* Trinity? Who drew the comic about lesbian wolves on the run from the law?

Trinity: That was a long time ago.

Neo: Jesus...

Trinity: What?

Neo: I just thought... you were a guy.

Trinity: I thought so too.

Morpheus: Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the femboy in the short skirt?

Neo: I was...

Morpheus: [gestures with one hand] Look again.

Early unit of computing power: one "kilogirl" was equivalent to a thousand hours of manual computing labor

heckin wow we've been a lot of people (and a few notpeople) today. sleep time though. maybe tomorrow we'll share some stories or poetry if we make it back to mastodon. we're going to be busy making final checks on the data we've been working on pulling out of our Creative Cloud account before we start shutting it down.

partner got this email in his inbox and i feel like i've found the official human incarnation of Horny Mastodon

I fucking love trans people so much.

I don't know anyone other group who do honestly and joyfully pursues *who they are*, what they want, as trans people. I'm not even talking about in gender. So many of us have, in realizing we can break out of our assigned gender, realized that none of the boxes we are forced into have to apply. We patch together amazing, unique selves out of our real, honest interests and desires. Its so fucking beautiful.

please try mewing today if you have never done it before! it is fun. you do not have to be a catte to do a mew!

cute nonbinary people

one method by which some new system members arrive 

a lot of the time when we end up in intense situations (bad or good) someone new takes over who is a lot like whoever is already fronting, who also is very different in some ways, but who is specifically better at doing whatever we've decided needs to be done right then

it's like scrambling part of who is at front to find a more optimal egg configuration, all while being careful to hang on to what pieces of our values and desires we've retained

there is essentially so much art of the two of them early in their time in our system. we should draw (lol) or commission some current representations for these two. Elsa has settled into being a fanfic-encompassing memetic subsystem of her own that occasionally buds off entire new system members. meanwhile Anna has mostly moved on to being an Agent trying to keep anyone from unraveling the collectively constructed reality of the Prime Continuum. they are still so gay.

childhood, species dysphoria 

We were stuffed animals and robots and rabbits and cats and then eventually they gave us Zoobooks and instead of 'learning' the lesson that there were many species and we were a certain one, we figured out that there was no way we knew what we were. No one wanted to help us figure out who we were or how to fix what felt wrong. We'd been pushed into the human category and they wouldn't let us leave. It's no wonder we have difficulty learning to communicate with humans.

childhood, species dysphoria 

We basically used to imagine this to get to sleep at night. We'd want to be taken away with the other children like us, even played out alien abduction and transformation scenes after our parents went to bed sometimes. Hoping that someone would recognise that something was wrong and we weren't supposed to be growing up in a human body. We thought for a long time we were just transgender, maybe just hoped it was a solution. It's part of one, but
