as an american, what is with american bread? why is it all spongy and soft and sweet and crustless? why is everything pre-sliced? why is impossible to find good crusty french bread outside of a big city? why do grocery stores dedicate a whole aisle to shelves of nearly identical spongy white breads? why is black bread so rare? is there a meaningful difference between a standard loaf of white american bread and a loaf of american brioche?

I wanna try emacs. I kinda but not really know vim. emacs folks, what do you recommend? vanilla, spacemacs, doom emacs? something else?

is there any creature more wretched than the lowly gamer

if I were in an analytical mindset, and I am, I might say that this usage is an attempt, whether conscious or not, to make LGBTQ people other. to treat them not only as lesser, but entirely different

what is it about LGBTQ folks that straight people just have no idea to talk about us? like "gay" and "transgender" as nouns. or the usage of "transwoman" / "transman" like it's all one word. or whatever the hell "transgendered" is about

@haysh I don't know how you managed to wear all those coats considering the temperature but YES I love it

it's so hard being a thembo *reclines on couch, fans self* there's so much "destroying the gender binary and capitalism and the patriarchy" to do

@LilyVers except my mother, being a nosy little shit whom I'm not out to, immediately assumed I'm a crossdresser when she figured out I shaved my legs

@LilyVers gender is the last explanation a cis person will jump to

trans thoughts 5/5 

@LilyVers this whole hiding the fact that I'm trans thing is so much easier than I thought. I'm thankfully mostly out now, but, like, my roommates notice NOTHING and I LIVE with them. as previously documented one of them didn't notice that I have boobs now, and I have a pair of B cups now that I make zero effort to hide. I could walk out in a pride shirt and I give it a 50% chance they don't recognize the flag.

the cis are oblivious.

@haysh if you were to toss the asparagus, what would that mean for the lucky catcher? eternal youth? healthy bones? a life dedicated to the service of a lesser demon? a year's supply of cheezits? your waiting public wants to know

satire 

I just loked at the change the cashier at Arbys gave me!! I saw most of the coims were marked D (democrat!),,, I told that pizza face that I,m a redblooded Aamerican and I don 't take money from traitors! Join me in demanding real currency of the USA of A!!!

One Of These Days I'm going to go on a rant where I critically examine why I like cyberpunk so much

It's easy to become desensitised to this now that "hottest temperature ever recorded" and "severe wildfires" have become news items we hear twice a year.

Do not become desensitised.
