If I don't approve a follow, I don't mean it as a slight, I'm just getting more restrictive because I'm not looking for a huge following and I've been burned by ok-seeming strangers being rude, weird or nasty to me and my friends.

If you think Snouts did nothing wrong and my friends who were getting harassed yesterday by altright puppers were "cloutfarming" please for the love of God unfollow me.

Hi, I was pizza_party@snouts and when I was feeling like shit I decided to request an account here.

I honestly don't know how much time I'll be spending on the fedi in the next few days, but I'm grateful I got approved and that I have somewhere else to hang out if I want to.

given that the human genome is public domain, cannot be patented, and is distributed used in the source form used for development, does that mean that humans are #foss? :ms_robot_thinking:

The Peter Pan stage play had an actor in a dog suit playing Nana, and it was a very popular play when it was first published. I have to imagine there are many theaters with dusty old haunted fursuits.

Emoprog isn't a music genre because mathrock largely covers that already

And also that this trans character has loving, if conflicted, relationships with men and women, instead of just being straight.

re: transphobia 

The reason this annoys me so much is that reading 'Yentl the Yeshiva Boy' really helped me work through my feelings and eventually come out as trans.

Most depictions of trans men I had seen up to that point didn't resonate so much with me, because they presented trans men as "super-butches" -- hypermasculine in a standard American, jockish way.

Seeing a trans character whose main focus was on study and living up to their father's ideals was a lot more reflective of my own feelings around gender.

transphobia 

I want to say, "I don't understand why 'Yentl' is so fraught," because I do understand, I just think it's especially galling when the story opens with the sort of "Woman with a soul of a man" language cis people usually enjoy putting on trans people. That's how a lot of more conservative cis people who are at least semi-sympathetic think of us, but when it comes to Yentl/ansel, it doesn't read as trans??

Show thread

Speaking of butches in stage plays, I remember when I was interning for a talent agent that specialized in LGBT performers, it was a Big Deal that somebody was putting on a version of "Yentl" where they depicted Yentl/Ansel as a butch lesbian.

From a straight read of the story, Yentl/Ansel appears to be bi and trans but what do I know? I'm not a cis director, I'm just a queer Jewish trans man.
