All systems are valid. Yes, including yours. 

my immediate test for any avatar maker is "can i be a faceless blue person with no discernible gender"

:ms_cloud:

my femme partner: oh no i can't decide which highlighter to take on holiday I'LL JUST BRING ALL FIVE

my terrible butch gremlin ass: ugh i GUESS i'll bring two pairs of jeans in case the baby throws up on one

:ms_cloud:

I'm a bit like UGH NO SELF YOU CAN'T DIAGNOSE YOURSELF WITH *EVERYTHING* but on the other hand reading the description is like. where did you get this actual documentary footage of smol me

so we recently read a thing about how adhd presents in 'girls'* and we're having the exact same '...oh.' feeling as we did when we first read about autism in girls

*we're not...exactly a girl but a fair number of us are at least girl adjacent. plus with these things I never know if they mean Actual Girls or just afab ppl anyway

How to be a real system

  1. Feel you’re system

  2. That’s it. You’re a system

shit we JUST updated the intro thing to include nebula and I just realised I have to update it again because I forgot to change 'Lexis' to 'Lucretia'

serpens 'can't stick with a name longer than five minutes' system

we've had a really stable aspen/rae/luz front this week and I'm like. is this what it's like to have an actual front team instead of a giant mess?? we could get used to this

brain no you cannot generate a new person just because we're really tired and anxious. no.

🌳​ trying to name the Weird Alien Child who pops up a couple of times a week to be excitable and enthusiastic about *almost everything* including the basic concept of being alive

'nebula' seems like something they approve of? although now aspen is like I WANT AN AWESOME SPACE NAME TOO THO

plurality, negative, identity issues 

🌳 so we're really thinking we might try setting up a plural discord for over-25s (like, physical age)

a lot of the servers we're currently in skew very gen z, and while that's, as the kids say, Valid, they tend to have very different issues, experiences, and sometimes communication styles from us.

so it can end up with us feeling a bit weird if we try to talk about our daily life, and a bit How Do You Do Fellow Kids if we try to join in existing conversations

would just be super nice to hang out with our fellow Olds sometimes

i kind of really love the fact that in the time we have been on fediverse on our main account, four (4) of our "singlet" mutuals have come out/figured themselves out as plural systems

the acceptance and "oh yeah sure thats cool" attitude towards Weird Brain Shit on so many fedi instances makes me so happy

📚​ I seem to be slightly stuck at front and I'm not sure how to approach it. My social skills haven't improved much, it seems.

internal system thoughts & stuff 

heyyy so we've been feeling like we want to connect with other plurals and stuff but we're ALSO tired and brainfucked all the time so discord is kinda difficult lately

so like

figured we'd try making a system account here again! hi plural.cafe
