  1. DST is archaic and needs to be done away with. It's inefficient, dangerous and confusing.
  2. Transphobes are the top of the list, but also on the list are the following: ultra rich people, religion, capitalism, political parties, brazen ignorance, bigotry. Plenty more in there too but those are probably the big ones.
  3. No. I've played my DS and 3DS in public many times and I don't really give a shit otherwise. Why would I be embarrassed to publicly enjoy something so innocuous?
  4. I would, but only in the sense of turning me into a cisgender woman instead of a transgender woman. Other than that, I don't need to change really.
  5. Online friends have been my best ones for my entire life. All of my offline friends have drifted apart and don't talk to me anymore. Been friends with people online for more than ten years! And my offline friends haven't talked to me in that long. Kinda sad...
  6. I have both. I get paid well and like what I do. Easy when you like writing code... haha.
  7. This is a tough question to answer. Prior to starting gender transition, I felt like every minute was wasted. Now I don't feel the same. At least at all times anyway.
  8. I won't cry in front of people, especially not those with whom I work. I've left early several times over the last eight months because of it. And that's really the first time I'd cried in a little over twenty years. Now that it's easier, I do it a hell of a lot more. Though, to be honest, making yourself not cry isn't tough... it's just weakness.
  9. Humanity needs to grow the hell up and stop being so mindless, shallow and hateful. Especially towards LGBT individuals. Good lord do we get the shit end of the stick. I would also like to see humanity discard religion like the garbage it is. Time to stop believing in fairy tales. Peter Pan isn't real and neither are their precious deities.
  10. Currently, I have seven active prescriptions. An antidepressant, anti-anxiety adjuvant to my anti-depressant, a non-steroidal ADHD med, an anti-androgen, estradiol, an anti-insomnia med and a beta blocker. You might say I'm jolly well fucked.
  11. During the day, yes. While I sleep, no. Ladies' underwear is surprisingly comfy.
  12. I have a fan running to make noise to block out my tinnitus. Since it's the winter time, I also have a room heater going.
  13. I would literally be fucked. My entire career is Internet-centric. I don't watch TV anyway so that doesn't matter but the Internet is how I make a living and where all of my hobbies reside.
  14. Not really. Why would I tidy my bed when I'm just gonna use it again later?
  15. Short of my parents being mildly obnoxious sometimes, I'm not annoyed by them really. I find it annoying that they're not trying as hard as they should with my request to use my new name and pronouns but... that's about as bad as it gets.
  16. Bowling is my jam. I'd like to get back on a league or two but I'm too busy for that these days. Still have yet to have a perfect game, which is big sad. But I have made the 7-10 split. My last average was a 202 and my high game is a 289. Fun when I throw ten in a row then leave a damn 10 pin.
  17. Today's post is a little different and it starts a slightly different series of posts. Today's post isn't a game, but it's still a big box. Anyhow, once upon a time, unofficial "addons" that were sold in stores were a thing, and it was common in the US, Europe and Russia. These "addons" were not authorized by the creators of the games they were for, except for some rare exceptions! The discs themselves usually contained things like utilities, maps, campaigns and, often times, cheats and trainers. They were popular before the days of constant Internet access so more people could enjoy fan-made content. Today's shovelware big box is Stellar Forces for Starcraft. Released in 1998, this particular addon was yanked mere weeks after Micro Star released it. Blizzard sued them and forced them to recall all unsold copies, which were subsequently destroyed. The reason Blizzard had this 'expansion' recalled was that Micro Star's previous expansion for Diablo was of very poor quality and they didn't want this poor quality product associated with their new title. Because the remaining copies were destroyed, copies of this particular Starcraft 'addon' are extremely hard to come by. Discs alone are uncommon, jewel cases with the artwork are even more rare but a complete boxed copy, like mine, is exceedingly rare. This fell into my lap and I didn't even have to pay inordinate amounts of money to get it.
  18. I get home then play video games. That's pretty much it.
  19. Russia, like the US, has some gorgeous locations and nice people but a deplorable government. Most Russians I've met have been fairly chill. I'd love to visit Moscow but not for a long time. They really don't dig trans people. Kind of a big sad...
  20. Even before I started my transition, I shaved most of my body. I loathe my body hair and always have.
  21. The reason you have to take the flu shot annually is that the shot is based on the most active, prominent strains for all carriers. That includes: human, avian and others (eg; swine, equine, etc). Different strains flare each year so you need a different multi-strain vaccine. Personally, I don't get a flu shot because I never get the flu. I haven't had the flu in over 20 years. Now that I've said that, I'll end up sick this year but oh well.
  22. I request that cismen stop being so fucking disgusting. Actually, that goes for ciswomen too. y'all are gross and I notice it a thousand times more. Thanks for coming to my ted talk.
  23. Yes, but I use it as an excuse to eat food, chill with family and watch a little football. And enjoy a day off. Has no real meaning beyond spending time with family.
  24. I am a genuine left wing nutjob. I will never be right wing anything and I loathe fascism and authoritarianism. Suffice to say, I loathe both "parties" in this country.
  25. I gave up on the US music scene. Even if some "underground" stuff is decent, I still don't find it to be that well crafted. I've stuck to things outside the US like Europe and Japan. Though, I do have music from all over and I find it to be much better than what I can get locally. [EDIT] Kanye West with a number one album? That makes me want to vomit. He's an egotistical hack with no real talent. That just drives me up a wall.
