❝ Got any flavors that pair well with mind bending levels of stress? ❞ Nancy asks, half-joking. She leans down to look at the flavors before looking back up to meet the eye of the scooper at the counter. She wondered if there was a fancier name for scoopers. Coffee makers were baristas... perhaps scoopers would be: ice cream advisors. That seemed a little above the pay grade for a job where a person was forced to greet you with an AHOY, though.
❝ Or, maybe just something that just isn’t vanilla based? I’d order the U.S.S Butterscotch , but Steve always said it was a little overrated. Do you have any suggestions? ❞
[ STARTER CALL | @robinbckley ]
Not to be rude on the main but like... all the posts that say "you don't have to be explicitly masculine/femenine/adrogynous to be a man/woman/gnc." I feel like they're kinda missing the point of how gender is a social construct.

The community turns into a clique with its own internal rules of who is "allowed" inside and who the community "claims," so often on the basis of arbitrary "moral" standards. Sorry but you cannot claim your community/subculture is inclusive and then exclude people of the same experience/identity on the basis that you think they are gross and invalid.
There is a distinction between a "community" as an abstract entity whose ties are based on having an identity marker, and as your clique for personally interacting with other people, and too often the two are conflated.
You can disallow a person from the latter kind [ especially if they genuinely do abusive actions ] but not the former. You cannot just say you revoke somebody being queer or neurodivergent or anything else because they act awfully, because these kind of identity markers are not moral value judgments, and the idea that one has to pass some threshold of "good enough" to be these things is exactly what the bigots who want all of us to stop existing want.
You start out eliminating the Problematics and Nasties [ whatever that means ] and people will just keep moving the goalposts on who the next bad guy is until there is nobody left. */
