queer description thread 

We feel like formal definitions of words like "queer" are always reductive, especially since the concept evolves with the community. We thought it would be cool to have a thread of different descriptions of different "shades" of the word "queer", from the most formal to the most vague or like subjective one.
You're welcome (and encourged) to comment whatever queer means for you!

conlang idea 

we had an interesting idea for a conlang that only has verbs, more or less, and only exists in written form. we're not sure we can explain without drawing but we wanted to share (also it's still a pretty early idea, still need to find a way to have abstractions like "the act of doing x" and a bunch of other stuff)
Do feel free to tell us if you're curious about it, we'll try to be clearer.

yall we're depressed but we thought we looked cute in this pic (it's from a few weeks ago but u gotta hang on to euphoria when it's there) so if anyone wants to give us a confidence boost we'd be grateful

godot engine question 

Does anyone know how to make a multibuffer shader in godot? I need to have a feedback loop, but Idk if it's possible

wish I was a shapeshifter so I could change eyes every once in a while
these ones hurt

I'm finally learning how to put my ok-ish experience in shaders and my limited knowledge of Godot together
Once I stop procrastinating for long enough to finish a project it'll be great


I have a complicated relationship with written communication
on the one hand I can take the time to think about what I'm writing and actually see it written, on the other I have more time to overthink and get into bad thought loops that make my reasoning harder
definitely easier to come out by writing tho

money stuff, request for help as usual 

hi! you can support us on:$Fidgetcetera

we're about to have a new phone, which means we can start pushing for putting it on a plan of our own, which means that our parents will have one less method of control and we can cut off their contact entirely by ditching our old number.

we have a patreon goal for roughly how much a pay-by-use Ting phone plan will be for us, but it'll probably be lower in most cases since we're on wifi so often.

additionally, we've made a wishlist at if ppl wanna send us money to get something, specific or not, that we've been wanting.

also, like, we spend on food delivery more than we'd like but as much as is necessary because we are disabled and sometimes can't cook, so. help is always appreciated.

and thanks always to everyone who does. yall make our life a lot better and it's amazing ✨
