So what?? Why do chromosomes matter at all? Gender ≠ sex. Anyone is allowed to identify however they want, and it literally hurts nobody.

However, trans people do actually have brain structures that mismatch their assigned sex at birth. Also, most differences of sex are just caused by hormones, so HRT really does meaningfully change someone's sex.
You should also know that human biology is not so clean cut. Intersex people exist, and for example there are people born female with a Y chromosome.

Realistically, that would mean nationalizing all of SpaceX. (Which I would support, although that's definitely not going to happen)

How do you deal with suicidal thoughts?

I’ve 🐝 bee-n fighting for two years now. I have this « job » that I’ve been stuck with forever now. My inability to enjoy the little things of life is just another indication of my dereliction: hating the bitter man I’m becoming, seeing myself in people I despise, being unable to think, speak, create....

Alexithymia is difficulty recognizing or understanding one's own emotions. I think you maybe meant Anhedonia? (inability to find enjoyment in things, expecially things that were previously enjoyable)

How would you put into words what gender means to you apart from societal gender roles and expectations?

I know that it has significant meaning to me but I struggle putting it into words to explain it to other people (especially other dya cis people). So like a few years ago I was thinking about if I may be trans femme. I have since realised that no, actually I was just struggling with it for a while because I don’t relate to the...

I see where you're coming from, but there kinda is, as anyone who has experienced gender dysphoria can tell you.

HRT really does alter biological sex in a meaningful way, and I think a lot of people view medical transition as making the body fit the mind better.

If the many worlds interpretation is correct, that would mean that there's not really an infinite number of discrete realities, but more of a continuum. So there are infinite other realities in the same way that there are infinite points on a line, but this exact reality is still unique.

No it won't. The beauty of Linux is that it can transform completely to fit your needs.

Making Linux more noob friendly isn't going to take away my custom terminal-centric tiling wm arch install.

More users = more developers = more options. Linux is already awesome, but growing will only bring more good.

There are quantized versions on hugging face. There's a q2 version, but idk how well that performs

Yeah, Doom 2016 is easily one of my favorite singleplayer fps games. Doom Eternal is just worse in every way, and I couldn't get through more than a few hours.

It completely breaks the combat flow state that made the original great

Instead of having the freedom to prioritize enemies and weapons, it wants you to do things a very specific way

Instead of the minimal but interesting story from the 2016, we get a convoluted mess, with random characters that we have no reason to care about.

Also, despite 2016 looking quite good, they decided to make Eternal garish and cartoony for some reason??

I could go on, but anyway I hope we get a proper 2016 sequel some day.

I agree in general, although I think Subnautica is still great despite being heavily crafting based.

I looked it up, and the region of Jupiter's atmosphere at 1 bar is -100C. So you theoretically you could fly a modified Earth plane, it would just be a bit chilly.

Interestingly, though, Venus does have a zone with Earth-like temperature and pressure.

Alright boys, I've been converted to the light side and have installed F-Droid. Now what?

Basically title. I waited on installing F droid for a long time because my phone threw many scary warnings when I tried a long time ago. But now I have it, and I got some fossify apps, but since there is no “Editor’s Picks” on F- droid I dont really know where to go from here....

ViMusic - ad free music streaming
TrackerControl - view and block app trackers
LibreTube - ad free youtube client
Termux - Terminal

There are also plenty of replacements for builtin apps like camera, gallery, maps, etc, although I personally haven't made that jump yet as there are some missing quality of life features.

This might not exactly be the sort of thing you're looking for, but I recently read and loved Blindsight

Not ADHD, but definitely neurospicy. The main character has half a functioning brain, with many technological augments, and is pretty far from NT as a result.

Anyway, I highly recommend it. Super interesting book. It's about alien first contact, although not in the way you might expect...

Humans might do that too, if they are stuck without food. I don't think that means much.

Also tamed big cats don't attack humans they know, despite easily being able to kill them. And they aren't even domesticated.

Yeah give me shapeshifting, please. Slow, binary transition ain't it.

I agree that some sort of decentralized model repository would be awesome, but ollama works with local files too, so I'm not too worried about it. I've used many LLM backends, and ollama is my favorite so far, but given how fast everything is moving, that could change in the future.

I don't think anyone underestimates Linux Mint. It's pretty widely considered one of the best distros out there.

Those of us who choose Arch do so for the software selection, and because we like tweaking the os :)

Yeah I thought it was a great product too. Microsoft gets in early, then gives up when it isn't immediately successful. They should have kept iterating, and integrated with xbox (psvr was successful). They could be industry leaders in vr if they tried a bit harder, imo.

If you want to try something else, you can always just install and try it out, while keeping plasma installed. That way you don't need to worry about setting everything up in one go.

Tiling wms are pretty awesome (i3 is my daily), but they do require some setup and customization. You can always use someone else's dotfiles as a starting point though.

Use what you prefer, that's a big part of what makes linux great. I get not wanting to go through the learning curve.

That being said, vim is pretty amazing to use, and super efficient, especially with some nice nvim plugins and customization.

Then a plug in hybrid or elecric car with range extender motor makes more sense. I think it's pretty dumb to be carrying around expensive, heavy batteries everywhere you go that only get used fully twice a year.

How is it news that she lost less than 0.1% of her followers?

I'm going to second this. Krita is really good. FOSS should always be your first choice.
