* Pynk Spots, "How to be Productive as a Disabled, Chronically Ill, and/or Neurodivergent Person"

podchaser.com/podcasts/pynk-sp

"I hate the word. I hate the entire concept. I think it’s rooted in meritocracy, I think it orients people’s self-value around what their bodies can produce for the State. I am defining 'productivity' as a violent capitalist concept against us, and our need to be productive as a need to survive, as an intent to survive, in a system that treats us with violence." "So don't worry, I haven't sold out."

You know what kind of advice this will be, but it’s good advice, and it’s always comforting and empowering to hear how other people manage problems similar to yours.

source is Hugo’s Facebook facebook.com/ContosdosOrixas .

- a watercolour of Oxum,
- a watercolour of Iansã by Robson Moura,
- a watercolour of Iemanjá by Paulo Torino.

this is so rad, check it out: The Orisha pantheon portrayed in a similar style as Kirby did gods in classic Marvel comics. From Hugo Canuto’s "Orisha Tales" project.

the iconography is rich and well-researched, leveraging traditional symbols in creative ways. I hope we see more Orisha, Nkisi and other African entities in pop culture more often.

selected a few I’m most emotional about and who have been present in my life:

Ogum smith-warrior, Eshu-brother, won’t save you will make you strong,

Oyá, Iansã of the thunder, sword-dancer in the gale-winds,

Iemanjá fish-mother, dona Janaína, Queen beneath the Sea, your single mom who will set your right,

and beautiful Oxum of the river, sweet young-mother, who loves adoration as much as gold, whose big yellow eyes cry easily but miss nothing.

@bright_helpings I love that, thank you for promoting silliness in a utility-oriented world <3

"silly" is a word I use a lot. it’s one of my favourite English words, one I miss when speaking other languages. it's a thing I like being, it's a thing I like seeing, and it's a way to describe this thing that is not ableist or based on white pseudoscience like "intelligence".

even historically, unlike most related terms, it's not a slur against disabled or neurodiv people. it comes from 'happy, blissful; kind, good'. Proto-Germanic *sēliz. (ugla I know you’re reading this, it’s sæll/säll).

it is cousin to 'console' and 'solace'.

it is the name of the Seelie.

whenever i see someone being affectionate my impulse is to call them gay. i forgot straight people exist

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

did I reply to her email too fast? did I come off as too thirsty or creepy? I was honest abt how great the last conversation was, but maybe my enthusiasm sounded insincere. I'm just eager for this to move forward, you know? get down to it? but what if she found my weird online stuff and decided to drop me for good? uff waiting for her reply is killing me.

this job search thing is a lot harder than dating >.>

transition goals + 

honestly transition goals got a lot more rewarding to think about after I realised the women I admire the most in the world are trans women. I want to be one of the girls someday, whoops you’re already there without even doing anything.

also passing got a lot more approachable when I realised the people I care the most about passing _for_ are trans and queer darlings, for whom me successfully passing is a function of saying 'hi I'm a girl' 01 times.

synthesiser folks: does anyone actually know what the sonic difference is between the SKULPT and the SKULPTsynth SE? i know what the price difference is - the SE is suddenly £100 cheaper - but i don't know why, or why i would buy the SE if i already have a SKULPT

@socketwench I'm sorry it's so hard. I understand how you feel and it’s terrible. I hope things get better for you.

do you know the 'transition goals' feeling, that feeling you have when you look at a celebrity or anime character and feel a surge of lightning in you screaming without words, "that!, that's who I am, that's who I'm supposed to be, that's who I wish I was."?

Tia Dalma from Pirates of the Caribbean causes in me the religious equivalent of this gender feeling.
