I spent an hour and a half at an LGBT social group meeting tonight and everything went pretty well!
Although there were only four of us attending, it meant a lot to have people use affirming pronouns all around as well as to just relax. Most of the conversation was about anime. Over my head, honestly. Yet we did talk about specific issues, for sure, and I shared my story with the group's sort of leader. He's really nice and... well, it means a lot to have somebody tell you face to face that they care about you, supporting you? Makes sense!
How's everybody here tonight?

Yeah, I can't tell you how much I needed this. The affirmation. Having the empathy. Having other people in similar situations being there in the flesh. So important after so much isolation the past several weeks post-hospital especially.
I also, afterwards when I got tacos (soft ones, as per my teeth issue from earlier today), gave one to a homeless person in the parking lot. I feel great about that as well. No question.
Dog-watching? Oh! What's the particular pupper like?

I'm thinking about running Curse of Strahd for my first campaign, but I've been working on several different ideas, mostly based on other Ravenloft/horror stuff
my two other things are a Darkest Dungeon style game and a game set in a Domain of Dread that is an endless dungeon, kind of like a roguelike type deal.
well I read all of Chainsaw Man first and that was really good
then I started reading the manga Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun, which is very cute and funny
I just finished watching all of season 1 of Zombieland Saga and that was really good
and now I'm watching the Iruma-kun anime

The Pastry Team are true artists.
You don't have to, the concept of over ripped and roasted are about the same.
Roasting just quickens the process of ripening and caramelizes the sugars.
I also use dark brown sugar over granulated.
Chocolate is always a fun addition, as well as candied walnuts.

last anime i watched was Slime Taoshite 300, which is an isekai about a girl who works herself to death, then is sent to another world where she basically takes it easy and kills only slimes for 300 years and slowly becomes the most powerful being alive, unintentionally
it has great messages about managing your workload, taking breaks, and knowing when to give yourself self love and not to burnout
one of my favorite scenes (which makes me cry) is this one, because it is so so so in line with what i'm going through that it hurts ><https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7hH-0-ZYO4
if you want a really good LGBTQ+ specific anime, I recommend Bloom into You
it's a slow burn romance between Yuu and Nanami. Yuu has always loved romance, but has never felt a romantic drive or desire to be with anyone, despite wanting it. Nanami is basically the head of student council, but when she is around Yuu, she lets her inner self out. the parts that want Yuu, but also the parts that are unsure and scared to fail or mess up
it sounds like a traditional Yuri story, but it's much more involved in that. There is strong indication that Yuu is Aro or Ace, yet still is able to have this relationship with Nanami.
It also has beautiful use of scenery, cinematography, and is just an absolute delight. i remember watching every episode with bated breath <3>>1090322
you're a cinnamon roll ^^>>1090323
oooh you have my interest then! i'd be down for a Chainsaw Man anime by the Zombieland crew!

I'll have to keep that in mind for the future then! I normally use brown sugar too, but had to resort to just regular granulated sugar because that was all i had on hand at the moment. Which reminds me, i need to pick some up when i go grocery shopping tomorrow.>>1090326

Oh, that 'Killing Slimes For 300 Years' one sounds hilarious and would probably speak to me a lot! I'll check it out!
Hmmmmm... yuri material... you know, it's complicated with me. I guess my own gender identity and relationship to femininity is complex to where I can't really get that easily into yuri romance? I don't know. I'm sensitive to gender roles sometimes out of the blue.
Speaking of such things, I'm curious, how goes your own life in terms of coming to be your 'true self' and working on your identity? If you don't mind my asking, of course! Just wondering!

yeah i dont know your experiences so i can't really speak on anything you're talking about
I personally don't let the opinions of people I don't know ruin my enjoyment of things.
I honestly don't give a shit what cisgender people think, lesbians or not, and I'm not going to allow them the dictate the things I can or can't enjoy just because they're shitty towards trans people like me.
But that's just me. I understand it's something other people have to work through in their own ways and maybe you can't just easily brush it off as I can and that's okay.
My advice is to try and change how you think about yuri. Remember that it's fictional, that they're not real people, and you have no reason to apply the prejudices of real people to the fictional ones in stories.
You'll also find that there are tons of cis lesbians that don't see trans people that way at all and are very accepting of trans lesbians. Don't let the bad ones give you a negative opinion of them as a whole.
I hope you can work through these things.

Posts deleted, eh, it's not good for the supportive atmosphere of the thread to talk about TERFs, even if we're all coming together and being in agreement that TERFs and transphobia is bad.
Even if it's relevant per se, it's a comfy-esque thread so not really right likely to focus on the negative even if to condemn the negative.
So, what plans have everybody for the rest of the week?

I'm curious, so, what kind of job is it that has such peculiar hours? Do you like it?
r.e. gender identity, I suppose it boils down to me constantly being horrified that I'll never be considered 'good enough'/'right enough' to a lot of other people, or maybe even most other people, and it's kind of a chronic pain that I try to avoid triggers of (like getting antsy about certain media content)

Honestly, I need to get back to work in large part soon to get like a... 'vacation from my mind'. I know that I get depressive for no reason when stewing in my own thoughts. For sure.
Like r.e. yuri, I know I shouldn't be too hung up over negative experiences and negative current thoughts, especially over other people prejudging based on appearance (because prejudging is silly by itself and doubly stupid when by something as meaningless as appearance). I should try some new media. And I especially should keep in mind that different people that I interact with now and in the future aren't at all likely to be like other people from the past.

It's minimum wage, but that's also 14 dollars, so it's pretty good, yeah.
Remember: The vast majority of cis lesbians aren't TERFs and the characters in yuri are fake and there's no reason to assume they would be TERFs or transphobic themselves. You have the ability to see them the way you wish to see them, and that doesn't have to be as if they were just as bigoted as real people can sometimes be.
Plus there's, like, a thousand and one different mangas and animes that have yuri as either major OR minor parts of them, so there's a lot of material you can choose from and there's bound to be something you enjoy.

indeed, one of the main reasons I like reading yuri is that it's a form of escapism for me

Well, jobs-wise, I guess that there are so many positions that pay like that but involve a great deal of mental strain, physical strain, possible real danger, and so on... I'm glad that things are at least stable for you. And that you can pay the bills. Hopefully, we both pursue our passions sometime soon.
Yeah, exactly, yuri characters are fake, and there's really no reason why not to project the best onto them and think that they'd be better than just a worst fear based on real-life people. It's simple. Fiction is fiction. We often do deliberately want fiction to be like... 'brighter' than regular life.What do you mean by "kinning"?

Good luck with your savings!And that's interesting! I'm not sure to what extent it'd apply to me, but I'm kind of in a position where I'd say that I believe in multiple universes and existence outside of space-time as such from a scientific standpoint... from a broader standpoint I'd say that I think all possible universes exist at the same eternal moment, so we're co-existing with My Little Pony as much as Zootopia as much as Toy Story as much as Doctor Who and more. No clue on hopping between, though. I'm agnostic but curious there.

How's everybody's week been so far?
Honestly, I'm feeling rather frustrated about dental related issues. I showed the statement that I got yesterday to my step-dad today, with something like $9,000 in future work supposedly to go, and he's concerned to say the least. As am I. At least, well, my pains in the spot where my tooth was removed stopped actually hurting this morning. Yet I still can't eat a bunch of things, let alone even use a straw.
On the plus side, my general day was alright for today. Could've been far worse. No depressive triggers. Or the like in terms of anxiety or dysphoria.
