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.

Eviction. Need money for food. Mutual aid. Boost. 

So we are getting kicked out of our house. During the time we are moving I won't be able to work for food. Also my mom doesn't buy food for me despite living with her so I'm underweight and go starving a lot. I just started my job so i don't have a lot of income yet plus what I said above. So any help is really appreciated.
If you want to help but don't have PayPal or cashapp let me know!$LunaCampbell

it's 20 seconds

conlanging question 

hey does anyone have advice on where to start constructing the vocabulary of a language?

As a Pacific Islander & Asian, I don't need your liberal platitudes & corporations plastering hula dancers on products to seem woke for a month.
US police MURDER / mass-incarcerate #AANHPI constantly, your wealthy make us homeless, & your military is bombing Mauna Kea. Leave.

(to everyone who has put money in my ko-fi: I've set it aside to put towards the costs, I'm not just pocketing it for treats! thank you so much)

If your leftism isn't antiracist, its not really leftism hope this helps.
