Didn't put this bunch of links in my original because I wasn't sure what my employers were going to let me keep up, but that's sorted out now.

So, I'm also creating stuff at: (games) (mainly modules backing those games) (music, very intermittently) (non-micro blog) (serious photography) (less serious photography)

Join us at’s #NotSafeToBeMe protest to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights. ✊

By cancelling its first-ever international LGBT+ conference and excluding trans people from the ban on conversion therapy, the UK Government has showed us that we're not safe to be ourselves.



When people, including bioscientists, say that "sex is a social construct," we don't mean it's a random thing totally unrelated to anything else that we can just change willy-nilly. That "blank slate" position is a strawman. We mean something way cooler and more legitimate. 1/



Are the gay pirates available (legally) in the UK yet? #ofmd


cold take about right wingers on the net 

The way we should respond to right wingers is by identifying them, making them know they're unwelcome, and protecting any of their potential victims. "dunking on" right wingers or regurgitating their ideas and imagery in a different context does the literal opposite, it legitimizes them and connects them to potential victims.

there's so many better things we can make memes about lol
