Pinned toot

Remember that all language is meaningless without context. If something you see on my toot history confuses you, please actually think non-emotionally before jumping to radical conclusions.

There is a spot in your brain dedicated to the HeadOn commercial and 877-CASH-NOW.

It is frustrating to be the only neuro-diverse person on your team at work

A ritual where you say "gender" over and over until it reaches semantic satiation, at which point gender utterly ceases to exist and no longer holds any power over you

I tried using spacemacs but it seems utterly incapable of using my terminal theme's 16 colors for things, and instead insists on using 256 colors. No, I do not want your shitty 256 color themes. Let me use the colors I picked myself.

I wonder how many Raspi compute modules could fill a pizza box without running into cooling issues

Ten fold the manna when the planets are in place, in polar alignment.
We're on assignment.
Bodies on consignment.
Return them to the circus
And what is the purpose?
What is the purpose and would you believe it?
Would you believe it if you knew what you were for
And how you became so informed.
Bodies of info performing such miracles.
I am a miracle made up of particles
And in this existence
I'll stay persistent
And I'll make a difference
And I will have lived it.

I aim to have the same kind of granularity in L'ewa. As a goal of the language, I should be able to point to any content word in the dictionary and be able to say “that's my gender” in the same way I can describe color or music with that tree. These will implicitly be metaphors (which does detract a bit from the logical stance L'ewa normally takes) because gender is almost always a metaphor in practice. L'ewa will not have binary gender.

In some senses, gender exists. In other senses, gender does not. With L'ewa I want to explore what is possible with language. It would be interesting to create a language where gender can be discussed as it is, not as the categories that it has historically fit into. Consider colors. There are millions of colors, all sightly different but many follow general patterns. No one or two colors can be thought of as the “default” color, yet we can have long and meaningful conversations about what color is and what separates colors from eachother.
