Community care is a recognition of the undeniable cooperative and social nature of human beings and involves a commitment to reduce harm simply through being together.'

Nakita Valerio: 'Shouting "self-care" at people who actually need "community care" is how we fail people....Self-care is about the individual caring for their own basic physical needs, whereas community care is focused on the collective: taking care of people together, for everything from basic physical needs to psychological and even spiritual ones. (1/2)

Self care is a skill, nobody starts out great at it. It's okay to say "I don't even know how to help myself". With anything else that takes practice, you need to spend time doing it. You'll have times where it's easier that other times.

sexual attraction, mild hornt 

Me, two days ago, to several people: Idk I just don't really get like, sexually attracted to men like that

Me, today: Oliver Thorn dressed as Lucifer giving a curious snake little smooches is the most sexy thing I have ever seen in my entire life lord (of the damned) have mercy

fascism, pewdiepie 

I wasn’t really planning on finding out today that PewDiePie’s favorite author is apparently Yukio Mishima because I really have 0 skin in the “is pewdiepie a fascist” game but here we are

Y'know?? Yukio Mishima? The Japanese nationalist who died trying to start a nationalist military coup????

A different view of the M87 black hole image.

I know posting a picture of the tactile black hole doesn't help its intended audience, but if you're interested in one please get in touch. Print-it-yourself files will come when the design is more final.

I mean, I kinda really get it because being able to render animal fur is a relatively recent, huge advancement in 3D animation, so if I was someone working in the field I probably wouldn't be very excited to render a coat structure that looks almost indistinguishable from just a texture slapped onto a hairless model, when I could be a pioneer of new tech, but gosh

What I find really strange about both of these movies' visuals is that they gave the animals a long coat? All of them? Like, why not something like a whippet coat? It would feel much more consistent with how Pikachu, Sonic and even Jigglypuff look like to me in their cartoon versions. They all look *off* to me entirely because they look like a weird long haired version of a shorthair breed to me.

(Especially in Sonic's case, a short coat would've fixed a *lot* of things the designers were clearly struggling with solving)

sonic, genitalia 

My dear friends I just want all of you to know that I watched the sonic trailer and heard the Robotnik line as "it's our job to secure it, neutralize it and see if it has a dick" and I was very confused but it seemed kinda plausible

Oh no I found out there's a local weekly vogueging workshop that's actually y'know, queer as hell and now I'm wondering if I radiate enough Queer Energy for this

People on the street are laughing at me for wearing a christmas sweater in april but little do they know I am now imbued with santa powers when society has no santa protections up

I completely accidentally ran into an old friend in GW2 yesterday and it's kinda hard to put into words how meaningful it was. The circumstances of us losing touch was full of hurt neither of us had caused and assumptions and unspoken things, so I did not feel comfortable just sending him a message, but seeing his character physically stand before me just sort of gave me the push and excuse.

Turns out he's been really lonely and not doing well, and here we are, meeting again three years later.

You always meet twice, y'all. You always meet twice.

avengers endgame spoilers 

Bear gut Thor is hot no I won't be taking any further questions

I never realised I actually always wanted to write detective stories huh

It's pretty fun having an acutal backstory for all my characters. There's John Toadheart, the very confident detective who's actually an idiot, his sidekick Yarga who is the actual brains of the operation and Aurie, the beleaguered cop who has to deal with them

Oof, s/o to for talking ALL the GW2 lore to me because now I want to write some fanfictions. I wrote one about all my characters once and never finished it.

Me, starting game dev: If I develop everything for browsers I won't have to port to different operating systems

Me, several months later: Oh no
