I just about cried.
kink and Final Fantasy XVI shitposting
Oh god, Square-Enix, you... you can't just call them Dominants. That... that word already means something, especially when made into a title: https://na.finalfantasyxvi.com/world/
(I might feel better about this if I thought they were capable of writing summoner as doms, but ample evidence suggests they are not. Certain Braska/Jecht fic notwithstanding.)
slavery, concentration camps, border camps
do ppl just not realize that there has never been a period of american history in which there wasn't a massive population of racial prisoners in concentration camps, prisons, or enslaved? the state's practice of racialized violence literally has not changed on a fundamental, structural level in 400 years. detention camps, internment camps, the prison industrial complex. these are all the "afterlives of slavery" (saidiya hartman)
oh no, it’s a gamer rant about transphobia; mh
- Play Extreme Meatpunks Forever instead
- Yeah, I’m absolutely the kind of shitty person that would’ve done a Corpo run in C2077. If that makes you lose respect in me, good.
- Honestly if terrible working conditions are a determinant here, they should be a determinant everywhere, and I’m glad I haven’t bought a AAA title in a long long while
- Ha ha ha I shouldn’t touch games, it’s all self-hate down there
oh no, it’s a gamer rant about transphobia
I’m pissed about Cyberpunk 2077 because cyberpunk feels resonant with my circumstances and because it’s the one setting that is mostly filled with People who Look And Feel And Have Issues Being Cogs In A Capitalist Machine Like Me and of fucking course I’m not gonna touch that transphobic, sweatshop-y POS. I wish it was a game I really wanted to play.
Okay, no, incorrect. _Results_ in competitive MtG require all of the above. Success may (and arguably should) be measured differently: by improvement, by fun, by game performance/errors per game and so on. Which does not require all of the above.
Now more than ever, success in competitive Magic _requires_ having a strong, competitive-oriented playgroup to test with, oodles of time, raw analytic talent, and enough mental health to withstand continued failure in environments with very uncertain utility functions.
surgery, trans, open to advice
So my insurance approved top surgery, I called and texted the surgeon to try to set up an appointment, and they're going to get back to me.
Anybody else who's had top surgery have any advice? This isn't my only resource for information and there are people who are helping me, but it would be good to hear from others.
