But I really want to do some teaching in my future streams! If I ever have days off I’ll try to fix up my mic set up
It would be nice to explain a bit more clearly how to paint and draw stuff
some doodles and tidbits from the stream!

shoutout to trans men, nonbinary men, transmascs, etc who are curvy, fat, have wide hips or chests they can’t flatten, who are short, who have long hair or babyfaces or high voices, who are gender nonconforming, who can’t or don’t want to transition medically for whatever reason, who will probably never “pass” in a way that looks cis.
cis men are not the height of masculinity and you don’t have to be indistinguishable from them to be masculine. people misperceiving you doesn’t define what you are.

lovely building material for a kingdom fit for my dog
when i was a kid, my parents noticed that, on one side of my body, one of my arms and legs were longer than the others. because of this, i had to start going on regular trips to the shriner’s hospital in kentucky, to get various tests done and to monitor my body’s growth (turns out i had some other things going on, both internally and externally, such as one kidney that’s smaller than the other, but that’s a whole story in and of itself).
anyway, they had, at one point, this event for shriner kids that involved their clowns, making balloon animals and being silly and making jokes, and i remember it was genuinely the most fun and comforting thing to me. like, all these people dressing in bright, tacky colors and not taking things seriously just made me feel good and was part of what made my association with the hospital one of relative comfort rather than of someplace foreign and scary. i even dressed up in a clown costume one year for halloween that a family friend hand sewed for me - not ironically or to be a scary clown, just because i genuinely loved clowns that much.
i guess what i’m saying is that i have a genuine appreciation for clowns and how silly and funny and whimsical they are. i think a lot of people just dismiss them as being, like, cringe? or scary, or whatever? but i think they are genuinely doing something really good by reminding us that we don’t have to take ourselves too seriously. thank u for coming to my ted talk
