the feminine urge to start like 10 projects at the same time

Plasma devs are like: "yeah we probably fixed this bug in the new version" (didn't fix the bug) (didn't check) (the bug is still there)

"allies" and coming out 

I have been trying to think of how to best articulate this thought but like, it seems like a lot of parents and other folks who I guess see themselves as allies to queer and trans folks but definitely are very passive about it think that not having a big response to someone coming out to them is like the peak of allyship.

But like saying "it doesn't matter" to someone who has spent a lot of time building up the courage to come out to you is kind of devastating.

We absolutely *cannot* afford to let homophobes gain control over the public narrative around monkeypox, and let them use it to once again kill queer folks by denying them crucially important healthcare. :boosts_ok_gay:
