New account, time for an .

I'm a white guy, more or less living at the top of Privilege Mountain, trying to learn to dismantle and undermine that privilege.

Things I'm into:

Things I'm (interested in?) learning about:

• And all the stuff above, naturally.

This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Continuing :

In 2018 (at 36), I realized my sexuality wasn't as straightforward (or straight) as I'd previously thought. It's more complicated because of course it is, but I generally consider myself bi/pan :heart_pansexual:.

It’s not a proper reboot unless it’s gayer than the original.

Today for Kindergarten the 6yo watched a video of Chris Pine reading a children's book. At the end, they told me that they knew who he was. Surprised I asked who he was. They said, "He was in Ghostbusters." They mixed up Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth without even knowing that Chris Pine existed.

This is both 100% reasonable and also makes me a little sad because I love Hemswoth and think Pine is super forgettable.

What’s your favorite game where you plan a villain?

Our roleplaying group is debating what you'd have to roll to write the democratic-communalist version of The Federalist Papers for the city of Ulfheim.

There was a power vacuum and some nobility were making noises that sounded too much like oligarchy to me.

If you have not before, look up a picture of medieval bee keepers. You will not be dissapointed.

I can’t believe no one has crawled into my mentions to yell at me for the bad opinions implied by that poll. Or the good ones. I thought for sure by now. Huh. Y’all are maybe a better and/or more stoic lot than I have you credit for.

Today was one of those days when I was just magically bisexual.

"I know Cure Wounds."

"Thanks for rubbing it in."

"It's a touch spell, that's how it works!"

Final Fantasy III/VI review that requires major cws for mh-, ableism, homophobia, fat fobia, school violence, and csa 

"I hated myself more than I felt anything about anything else. And I’ll never know why, though that day I realized it was terrible and useless to hate myself. I’d keep doing it, and I still do it every day of my adult life, though at least I know I’m doing it... I had wasted days. I had wasted thousands of opportunities to pay the world acts of goodness."

The necklace had been passed down for generations; though sometimes it was a ring, and sometimes a bracelet. It changed for each person with no obvious pattern. It didn't seem to possess any other magic.

On my 18th birthday, the family gathered around to see what form it would take for me.

"My word!" My grandma exclaimed.

"I suppose it's technically a ring," her wife reasoned.

I slipped the brass knuckles on.

They fitted perfectly.

Hellow. It is Friday. So far the morning has had a pretty high chaos factor. We're gettin' through it, though. 💖

In remote PE the 6yo did some AMRAP thing with different activities. Now they're watching a video about self care. Not bad…

Anyone here can help me with a list of words/descriptions related to mental health, to physical disabilities, and to LGBT folks?

It's for a game. I want to make sure I use terminology that is correct and not offensive.

I'm willing to pay for the gig, although I guess it shouldn't really be a lot of work?

Any help or pointers appreciated, including boosts.

LIFE PRO TIP: If you set Facebook's language to "Pirate", two things happen.

1. Facebook becomes generally harder to use.

2. Whenever Facebook manages to sneak its tendrils onto the rest of the web, you will notice.
