My college screwed up email communications so badly, they just sent out announcements to most of the entire student body about being signed up as a Communications major.

If you're developing a video game with the ability to custom your character, please don't forget disabled folks and also add mobility aids!

As a few examples, you should at least include wheelchairs, crutches, rollators, prosthesis, hearing aids, noise canceling headphones...

We lack representation in video games and wish we could relate more when there's a custom possibility.

Please, make it possible if you can!

The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!

survey.gendercensus.com

It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Unity (former game engine company) has merged with an actual adware and malware distribution company. That's not an exaggeration. Fake Flash installers, was blacklisted by Microsoft's anti-malware tool, VirusTotal entires, that kind of thing.

Don't build your games on engines you don't have the source code to.

been playing stardew valley lately and i feel like i got hooked hard. so many of the game's mechanics are addictive that i kinda loathe the time aspect of it. it's so hard to do all the things you want to do in a single "day" and I get so easily distracted by cleaning up the farm's overgrowth lol

Might have lunch with a work friend tomorrow, I'm looking forward to that

yeesh i really just had my mom ask me what shark week is

My favorite artist just uploaded two old instrumentals of songs from my favorite album! It's awesome hearing them off-vocal like this, and I'm hoping to hear some vocal covers of Miserere Nobis (Latin for Have Mercy Upon Us) in particular

so, the followup to this story is that i basically said "fuck it" and made the appointment for just two days after the post. i started the same day, amazingly. that was uh.. one heck of a day!

anyway, i had been neglecting really trying anything socially for quite some time now. i mean, the psychiatrist was the very first irl to call me by my chosen name just the other day lol. talk about overwhelming :blobcatsweats:

thanks again to everyone for all the advice and anecdotes! <3

can I comission an agender bracelet from anyone onhere?

It's—
kind of surprising how many people who don't even live in Japan are demanding that their perspectives are important and their voices be heard on the political assassination of a Prime Minister who's never directly influenced them.

My immediate reaction was gut-deep worry, because elections are two days from now and the Right is probably gonna win, and the ultranationalists are probably going to make good on threats against Koreans and Chinese (whom they are insisting must be responsible for the assassination, actually),

and

potentially

other minorities. Like me.

If you don't have any skin in the game, right about now would be a very good time to shut your mouth about things you don't understand. ❤
