Please boost as a reminder to the many, many creators who design pins and flags for literally every other identity, for people who forget or don't know that we are failed by the medical system the instant we're born, and for the rest of our lives, again and again.
We go into the hospital and say we're cis or trans, because otherwise we WILL be refused treatment out of hand.
Intersex People Exist, and we have a place in pride.
i want people to be ashamed to admit they are landlords. i want them to feel disgusted
https://www.ieee802.org/11/Reports/tgbf_update.htm looks like you might be able to keep tabs on the status of the project here. I'm not 100% sure but it looks like the tech isn't entirely in place and no regulators are going to approve it until at least January, at least
when an american man walks into a quaint wee pub in Scotland and announces he is 1/8th Scottish, we all leap up with tears in our eyes & cry out "a lost son of Alba is returned to us!" and everyone busies round him and gets him a whisky and an old lady called Morag tearfully hugs him and calls him a bonny lad, and we all ask him to marry our bonny daughters, and the auld men start up a ceilidh tune and we teach him to dance like a Scot and when he's all tired out we cut off his head and eat him
gender/animacy noun class system for a conlang
neutrois: people whose gender is specifically "no"
plurisex: people whose gender is "more, please"
locutive: the animacy class for all things which can talk or sing, including birds, cetaceans, guinea pigs, and machines or tools whose function is to communicate words or music
when conjugating a verb, all of the grammatical genders which are indeed gendered conjugate as locutive; but some features (such as agreement in noun phrases) treat locutive and the other animacy classes as being "the same kind of thing" as the gendered noun classes.
animate: things which move, including streams, fire, machinery, and non-static weather conditions
vital: things which are alive and remain in one place, including oceans or lakes (but not waves), plants, and fungi
inanimate: things which do not move and are not live
abstract: ideas, qualities, and intangibles
me: like one of the primary errors people make, from the boomer hippies through the current era, is mistaking aesthetics for politics and vice-versa. communism is about meeting everyone's material needs not forging a leaderless neverending drum circle or letting you, jimmy fucknuts, personally be the big dick drum major everyone listens to and respects as the big hero
also me: i do like those big fuzzy soviet hats though
There's some work to be done in terms of how much world info I give about users, but the general outline is taking shape.
