whenever i try to think of a verb for "having a set of pronouns" (like "$PERSON uses they/them", but not "use" because that's ambiguous, it could also mean "when $PERSON says a pronoun for someone, she uses the correct one")
the one i always come up with is "i've been rocking she/her for over a year now"
@monorail the best thing is when you go to enter a new password and it says "your password cannot be the same as your previous password"

long, very weird dream i had
long, very weird dream i had
had a dream that the mcelroy brothers put out a movie, so even in the dream everything i'm about to say was scripted
there was an episode of mbmbam where, during recording, justin somehow got a four inch nail stuck to his tongue. they never really went into detail about how it happened (though it always made sense to me, in the dream,) but it didn't hurt him and he could keep it there while his mouth was closed and it wasn't in the way or anything. if he opened up his mouth and stuck out his tongue he could stick the nail out. this is something they didn't talk about much in the episode.
later in that episode, justin wanted to register a domain name based on a joke they had made, as he often does. the one he wanted to get was https://butt.word which he was surprised to find was available. only seconds after attempting to register it, he got a canned email from ICANN explaining that to register it, he must send them a video convincing them that he would use it for a wholesome purpose. the boys found this hilarious so they made a video and posted it on youtube at the same time the episode went up. in the video, as a party trick, justin used the nail on his tongue to pop a balloon
i bet you thought that was weird. that's not even the weird part
some members of a secretive race of merfolk saw the video and assumed that somehow the mcelroy brothers had become aware of them, but supported them in the current conflict between them and another secretive aquatic race. you see, they would augment their bodies with found pieces of metal for combat purposes, and assumed that justin was referencing them by popping the balloon. they revealed themselves to the boys to honour them, and were met with some pretty understandable confusion. since they had revealed themselves anyway they explained their cause and their conflict, and the mcelroys decided that they were righteous and vowed to help however they could
there was a timeskip to several months later when it was revealed that they have a way to turn humans into one of them, but it's permanent. justin mentioned that that's something he'd actually been idly daydreaming about for a while, but he wasn't sure if he was brave enough to go through with it. when questioned he mentioned that he had even come up with the name that he would use, that's more like the kind of names that are used in the merfolk culture. almost as a joke, griffin called him by that name, and he had this big emotional moment where he almost cried, realized he was ready and dived into the water
i can't tell you any more because i spent the rest of the dream arguing with people that "someone fantasizes about being something they don't think they can, learning it's possible, picking a name, and getting so emotional when someone uses that name for them that they make a permanent change to their body" is definitely an intentional trans metaphor
before you reply to this post to tell me how weird my dream was please reread the cw
