A través de mi amigo Max y su newsletter Regios Will Be Regios, me vine enterando que en también tenemos un iceberg de teorías conspirativas y . Entre graciosas, intrigantes, prejuiciosas, atemorizantes e históricas. Algunas de ellas ya vienen xilograbadas en nuestro ser, y las llevamos a todas partes con nosotres.

Playing around with . So far, so fun! It's bringing memories back from what I had learned at the workshop five years ago at Notts Pride. I think then they used to teach and it was connected to synths tho? This is a good re-start. :ground:

“To be asked to communicate whether in writing or in person with the person who has harassed you, is to be asked to reopen channels of communication that you closed to protect yourself. The person who abused you is given more chances to express himself.”

The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!

https://smartsurvey.co.uk/s/gendercensus2021

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

Wendy Carlos, angry essay about trans stuff by her 

Seeing a lot of discourse about Wendy Carlos and her transition over on birdsite right now - after the BBC posted an old clip of her demonstrating the Moog - and it strikes me as a bit odd that few people seem to be taking her own words on the matter into account, so here are those words, from the late 90s, in all their tired-of-this-crap glory.

PTSD, fear of music, shitty music scene, confidence 

Also, during that time I started playing with a band aaaaaaaaaaaaaand long story short, I would've been better off making my own music with words on a computer. :nes_fire:

Finding this instance and seeing they have newsletters and a visible presence of algo, tidalcycles, etc. is making me get a bit more excited to try. But then, my music experience from the previous paragraph ended so bitterly and in such a humilliating way, I'm a bit scared? Until recently, I was too traumatised to even *listen* to music, let alone make it. Eep.

Joining this instance has made me a lot more interested in trying and music.

First knew about it about 4/5 years ago at Nottingham Pride when a group of women from Sheffield gave a workshop about it. It was fascinating, but I left it in the backdrawer of my mind because most of the software they used was for Mac and I'm PC bruh.
