If you follow me and have no meaningful public posts and no meaningful bio or pinned posts, I will believe you to be a creeper and block you.

Plenty of creepers get annoyed when folks acknowledge that they are creepers. Getting annoyed that people see you for what you are just proves my point.

Hey you! (Open for love.) 

As you might expect, it starts with going to a great little cantina.

TRANS MEN: TESTOSTERONE IS NOT BIRTH CONTROL.
I'm seeing an alarming number of boys and young men entering our online spaces scared and confused because they might be pregnant. Due to testosterone stopping their menstrual cycle, they believed it was impossible for them to get pregnant — thus they were not as cautious and safe as they otherwise would have been while with their partner.

**If you have not had a hysterectomy, you can potentially get pregnant while on testosterone.**

There are trans men several years on T who will report abruptly having their cycle again after not having one for 1-3 years. It's possible. Improbable, but possible.

You need to continue practicing safe sex even while on T.

I think I only have one song about falling in love with a chupacabra.

I try to create musical stuff for Christmas gifts. This past year, I had the idea for a multimedia art piece. I finished the music for it, but the visual side of it was never really finished.

Today, I decided to release the music to the art project. It's instrumental Christmas music, but a little experimental and very electronic.

Adhering to the idea that respecting another person’s basic humanity is the baseline for engagement is only ‘political’ if you’re a hateful piece of shit.

It’s one of the most basic tenants of being a decent person. It’s not that complicated.

The wild part is how many people struggle with the basics in this space and demand we ‘negotiate’ with their hate and toxicity.

begpost, update, boost are appreciated

"Ladies and gentlemen":
-reinforces the gender binary
-makes you sound like a bougie
-cliched as fuck, no dramatic tension

"Friends and enemies":
-Inclusive and gender-neutral
-makes you sound like a supervillain
-dramatic tension: who are the friends and who are the enemies?

i'm doing the RPM challenge this year- any others?

I probably mention it a lot, but it's almost that time of the year.

February Album Writing Month

fawm.org/

14 songs in 28 days, and this year we have an extra day.

The goal isn't to release an album, so much as to create the demos that can sell the songs to your bandmates so you can finish the songs.

There's a lot of single-being bands. Sometimes there's a cat on a synthesizer. There's pure instrumentalists and pure lyricists.

But most of all, lots of friendly people.

Okay it's been a while since I've asked for donations but:

I'm about out of ink from the last round y'all bought me, for printing up pro-union materials, and now I would like to print out some materials to raise awareness of this businessperson's preadatory behavior, since I live between two of his most profitable locations.

If you can, please consider donating to one of the methods listed at emsenn.net/support/

First order for musical equipment for the year 2020 has been placed.

I've backed the "Orba" project on Kickstarter. For my use-case, it just looked too compelling. It's a hand-held multi-instrument designed for quickly writing songs. $89 USD + $6 for shipping.

White supremacy isn't delegated to right wing ideologies. It's not something that the left is free from and above. It is ever present because we currently exist within a world that is dominated and shaped by white settler colonialism. It shapes our culture and individual worldview so absolutely that just because you read black revolutionaries and go to marches every once in a while, or share stories of police violence, that does not mean you have killed the racist in your head.

Shout-out to all the trans girls who are too depressed to shave, brush their hair, or do makeup every day, even if they'd like to.
You're all beautiful and perfect and I love you.
