hey let’s rlly try and phase out the terms “trap” and “futa” from our roleplaying communities huh

Hey, here’s an idea.

Or let people use the terms that they want to for their own characters.

What’s next? Going after “shemale” and “femboy”? Let people roleplay what they want

yeah that’s a good point, shemale and femboy are also disgusting terms and should not be used anymore! thanks, idiot

Quick to call names? That’s very unthoughtful. The terms may be disgusting to you, but I know plently of roleplayers that use them. Hell, some of them are trans. So just let people roleplay what they want without trying to govern them.

i’ve met zero trans people that are comfortable with those terms and dozens of trans people who find them uncomfortable, dehumanizing, and objectifying, so you go ahead and continue to do whatever you want, but now everyone knows you’re a transphobic creep so enjoy

Trans lady here, can confirm that seeing any of the terms mentioned above makes me want to gouge my eyes out with a spoon.

Frankly seeing somebody use it makes me feel like they only view people like me as a fetish. Like, if you’re not going to dignify the reality of what the characters are and invent a million shitty terms that equate trans women to men just so you can avoid admitting that the object of your sexual desire is a trans woman… like, what else am I supposed to take from that. 

Like you reduce these characters from being trans women to being a term used only in fetish material, and always with that connotation of ‘partway between a woman and a man’. From being people to fetishes. Honestly, it creeps me out and makes me really uncomfortable.

If anyone who sees this uses these terms… I can only request that you stop, I guess. It’s shitty.

^^^^^

Fellow trans lady here in full agreement with the last post. Let’s fucking YEET these terms out of existence.

It was more time consuming than I expected, but here’s the cover art for Codex Black, the adventures of Donaji & Itzcacalotl, my upcoming webcomic!
I’m now working on all the details left to be able to upload the Prologue as soon as possible, hoping that it will take less than a week to set it all up.
Cacalotepetl can be seen in the background, as it will come into play soon in the story.

Concept: That scene in every 90s high school movie where someone shows the new kid around the cafeteria (”that table is the nerds, those are the jocks, the goths, the cheerleeders” etc) except it’s a medieval tavern and each table has a different d&d class.

Those are the arcane casters. They all sit together, but the wizards think the sorcerers are undisciplined cheaters and the sorcerers think the wizards are pretentious dicks. You don’t wanna get in the middle of that–the last person who tried got polymorphed into a toad. I guess he had a lot of debts he was looking to get out of, though, so he just rolled with it. He’s somebody’s familiar now, I think.

The bards used to sit with them, but they broke off a while ago to do their own thing. Look, I should tell you right now: you’re poetically gonna sleep with at least one of them. It’s happened to most of us, so don’t be embarrassed. If you’re lucky, you might get away with just a ballad to your beauty parodying an 80s rock hit.

The paladins are at the next table over. Religious freaks, but if you’re getting bullied they’ll have your back even if they don’t know you. You, uh…you might end up sleeping with some of them, too. Look, they’re really good listeners, okay? Whatever.

The druids. Don’t even THINK of trying to sit with them unless you’re rocking a negative carbon footprint. Or if you can turn into a bear or a slow loris or something, they love that shit.

The rogues are…they’re around here somewhere.

Bladeless wind turbines generate electricity by shaking, not spinning

Scientists hope to hugely reduce the cost of wind energy by removing the blades from wind farms, instead taking advantage of a special phenomenon to cause the turbines to violently shake.

Vortex, a startup from Spain, has developed the tall sticks known as Bladeless — white poles jutting out of the ground, that are built so that they can oscillate. They do so as a result of the way that the wind is whipped up around them, using a phenomenon that architects avoid happening to buildings and encouraging it so that the sticks shake.

They do so using vortices, which is where the company gets its name from. The bladeless turbines use special magnets to ensure that the turbines are optimised to shake the most they can, whatever speed the wind is travelling at.

As the sticks vibrate, that movement is converted into electricity by an alternator.

Wiggling Poles of the Wasteland Harvest Electricity For Power Hungry Humans

These also look like they would cause fewer problems for birds and bats.

This is really cool.

They leave off the important note that when the wind rises, each pole makes a sound like a hundred vuvuzelas roaring at once. In the post-apocalyptic world of the future, villagers will speak in hushed tones about the Roaring Plains, and caution adventurous travelers to stay well away. 

I appreciate how they essentially invented very useful yet alien-looking screaming pillars. Science continues to make some suspiciously sci-fi shit.

At least you won’t have to go outside to know how windy it is… You’ll hear it.

They provide us energy

They provide us warmth

They love us

These martyr gods, their twitching agony is our salvation

trans people shouldn’t have to look cis to be respected

the comments on this are gross y’all clearly dont understand how this works. transitioning is not that easy nor is it affordable. and it is a transition aka it’s not instantaneous aka it takes time. years and years, in fact, to get to the point where you could pass for cis and even then some people may never fully pass. surgery is expensive and getting medical treatment is a nightmare in and of itself. some people can’t fully transition or pass for various reason such as age, health, money, location, family, not being completely out, body type, etc. and they are still worthy of respect and dignity. so yeah, passing may be “the goal” but if you only respect trans people when they pass, news flash: you’re trash. 

trans people shouldn’t have to look cis to be respected.

And some people don’t want to medically transition! Hormone replacement therapy and surgeries are scary, and not only that but some people don’t feel the need to put themselves through all that, and THAT’S FINE! THEY ARE STILL VALID!

People experience life differently, and that’s OKAY!

One of the funniest things I ever experienced was when I went to go see John Mulaney live, and halfway through a bit about how expensive college in the States is, he looked down at the sleeve of his suit jacket and just. stopped. dead halt, mid sentence.

And after like three seconds, where we’re all trying to figure out the punchline because the story clearly hadn’t ended, and John Mulaney quietly says, “Has there been tinfoil on my buttons the whole goddamn show?”

He’d taken his suit to the drycleaner, and they’d wrapped the buttons on the sleeves and the coat with tinfoil to protect them, and John Mulaney didn’t notice until half-way through his set, and was SO FLABBERGASTED that he never did finish the story about college and instead did five minutes on how stupid it was that his buttons were reflecting the light and he just didn’t notice, and in that moment I understood more about John Mulaney as a person than I ever have.

during one of his portland shows, he noticed this like 7 year old girl in the front row and asked her (and her parents) if she ‘is aware that she is physically here right now’ or if she was just brought along. turns out her favorite john mulaney bit is the “and I’m new in town” bit and that she’s seen all his stuff. He was so shocked and discomforted by the fact a SEVEN YEAR OLD has seen his shows, that he couldn’t get through a bit about donating to charity without interrupting himself at least three times to import good life lessons on this small child, as if that makes up for all the horrible things he’s said that she heard

When I saw him in Ft. Lauderdale, there was a bar in the lobby that people kept leaving to go to. At one point, a guy in the front row just got up and BOOKED IT to get drinks. John Mulaney looked over at a woman who was next to the empty seat and asked, “Are you with him? What’s his name?”

She was, in fact, with him, and she did tell him her date’s name. John Mulaney considered this, looked around, and unplugged his microphone. Leaning in to us, he told us that we were going to trick this guy so fuckin hard. He said, “At some point during the show, I am going to stop and say, ‘Well, you guys know what they say here in Ft. Lauderdale,’ and then you guys are all going to scream back ‘WE LOVE MILKSHAKES!’ He’ll be so confused.”

He then continued on with the show as normal, the drinks guy returned to his seat, and that was that for quite a long time. We thought he had forgotten about it until, at some point during what I believe was his McDonald’s drive-thru bit, he shrugged his shoulders and said, “You guys know what they say here in Ft. Lauderdale…”

Naturally, we erupted with “WE LOVE MILKSHAKES” and John Mulaney SWUNG around to face the drinks guy and said, “I bet you’re real confused now, huh, JASON?!”

ah so john mulaney is a chaotic neutral cryptid

i saw him last night and there was a good ten minute interlude where a woman told him everything she found wrong with his suit, including that his pants were too high waisted to which he replied “that’s where my hips are” and someone in the back shouted “look at that high waisted man he’s got feminine hips!” and he yelled back “that’s my joke! i’m offended!!”
