"making the best of every day" is not about the peaks

it's about the valleys

it's resting, it's healing, it's nourishing

it's collecting tomorrow's spoons

Hi, I'm Rey, a polyamorous, postfurry, queer as fuck, non-binary trans catgirl and/or foxenby (... I think?).

I am an engineer, the sort who makes embedded hardware do cool things. I was the founder of vulpine.club. I like glowy dance, big bass, and hot enbies.

I drive Lezbaru, a '09 Outback. We've been through some shit together.

I am currently learning to live with #fibromyalgia (diagnosis pending), and I use #cannabis and #shitposting to make it through each day.

I am in #Rochester normally, #Boston regularly, #Seattle occasionally.

I am made of love. It's stronger than you.

Hey ,

This is my last message as an admin of vulpine.club.

It began as a weekend project, something cool to play with, to fill up time between jobs.

Then others showed up. And we became friends. And we became a community.

We built a decidedly queer space, atop radical acceptance and boundaries and consent and respect and love.

What started as a novelty became a safe space, a judgement-free place for self-exploration, for myself and for so many others.

This was the first community where I was Rey, 100% of the time. This was the first community where I've felt *normal* for being into the things I'm into, for loving folks like I do, for being _me_.

But at some point, it began to feel like v.c was usurping my identity. Being "Rey, the Vulpine Club admin" became awkward and uncomfortable. This isn't who I *am*... I am so much more.

I've also struggled with the conflict between having responsibility for the safety of this community, and being in personal intimate relationships with a substantial part of it.

So, I figure it's time to turn in my badge and pun, and leave things in the paws of the best admins, mods, and friends I could leave y'all with: Sariya and Clara.

I love you all. You are such beautiful and amazing critters. Thank you for being here with me <3

P.S. I'll still be around, you betcha

white women are white supremacists too

hold white women to the same level of scrutiny that you do white men. they don't get a pass for also being oppressed by patriarchy

white women are so used to being made into passive victims that we rarely if ever interrogate their mundane yet active investment in white supremacy (McRae's use of the phrase "constant gardeners" gets at this perfectly)1

Ironically or not, I'm merchandizing tf out of that Jewish anarchist symbol I made, owing to my ongoing financial problems: teepublic.com/t-shirt/5097199- Apologies in advance for the gendered fits (Male/Female).

The symbol itself is also already available on Wikimedia Commons under a CC-Zero license: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil

While I am speaking to the new folk:

If you have come here expecting a place free of strife, drama, sadness and "discourse", you will be sorely disappointed.

This is a place where we cry, we get angry and fight, bicker and yes, "discourse". We mourn our lost ones. We talk shit about others in followers only posts.

The difference being that over here your emotions aren't being exploited and manipulated by a corporation looking only to next quarter's earnings.

Welcome.

@rey I did it a while ago on a 7960, which was a bit more involved than copying a .png to a TFTP server. xD

pain 

I've been posting more mental health and chronic pain/fatigue stuff with public visibility as of late, intentionally.

When I march in pride parades (or simply leave my apartment), people see a snapshot of who I am at one moment in time: I'm moving, I'm smiling, I'm looking okay. Young successful trans woman, woot.

What they don't see is me laying in bed, unable to move from pain. They don't see me struggling to figure out "easy" things like disability paperwork or the instructions on a box of macaroni and cheese. They don't see me negotiating myself out of self-harm multiple times per day.

I am not ashamed of this. It's what I've got to work with. It's who I am.

And I celebrate who I am. <3
