much more worrying than the spiders: the giant hole in the ceiling and all the flaking lead paint

there are so many spiders in my studio

I don’t have a single problem with them hanging out there but I need to repaint the space and I don’t want to kill them in the process and I already accidentally destroyed one’s web while moving furniture what do I do

how do I call a spider truce

been thinking about pronouns and gender identity and shit and it’s like

I don’t make any obvious effort to make myself not look like my biological sex? I mean I wear things that make my boobs and hips obvious and aside from that I wear my hair long

I also don’t have a problem with being perceived by others as female but my gender identity? idk

like I think gender is entirely performative which means when I wear my hair long and do things like wear dresses or even relatively gender neutral clothing that still make my secondary sex characteristics apparent, I am doing so with the knowledge that people will read and react to me in a particular way and I am prepared to handle that

but I don’t fundamentally identify with “femininity” in any way

and so for most intents and purposes she/her pronouns are fine but like? do they say anything about who I am? nah

I don’t think kaprand understands the idea that his naturally held convictions aren’t always how other people think or feel and so he goes around acting offended when people don’t take his opinions to be self-evident but then he’s also kinda bad at justifying his opinion because it’s a deeply held moral conviction and maybe he hasn’t actually worked out the theoretical logic of it because it’s very much a feeling

it’s weird like scottish independence should in theory be about hope and new prospects and positivity and it didn’t even occur to me that this was the case until paul talked about it because the entirety of alex’s pro-indy argument has just been shitting on other people

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.
