upped your comment, because then they would read 4 3 2 1 which i found satisfying and funny.
Can we be friends?
I orbit three clusters:
- music, cinema, & literature;
- philosophy & metaphysics;
- permaculture, making vegan food & ethnobotanics.
(and before ziq asks XD , my average hummus consumption is 2.5kg a month + 2l of tahini)
Everything is completely political/ethics for me, including rest, learning, entertainment, gardening, etc.
e.g. One Piece is my favourite tv show, I watch it for fun, but it actually structures my entire political sense of self.
I want anarchic adventure with those I have affinity with, I pretty much advance nothing else.
permaculture, vegan food, cats, foraging, sci-fi, cartoons, retro gaming, trolling americans on the internet
i like reading, good food, sleeping, walking, plants, movies, dancing.
Breasts and Eggs sounds interesting, love the title. How is it?
psychedelics, empathy (as a social skill, exploring ways to contextualize thought and behavior so I don't constantly get mad at people), music and storytelling arts (magic, comedy, horror, and whatever they have in common), vegan food (though rarely interested in talking about it), playing low-risk catch me if you can, some etymology and linguistics and the philosophy involved
Video games, comic books, anime/manga, and playing around with the tropes that appear in the previous three.
Also, daydreaming about the various worlds that I've created in my head while lamenting my lack of artistic talent to make them come to life.

♡ I game more than I would like. Mostly Apex and bloodborne rn. The new Destiny 2 and PoE expansions look sick as hell though so who the hell knows.
♡ I don't write enough, but I'm very interested in writing queer erotic horror, and reading it. The book that got me into it was Fist of The Spider Woman. It haunts and arouses me on every subsequent reading. I know Mexican Gothic and some of Fionna Zedde's work is on my to do list, reading wise. My current "novel" ideas are all flavors of lesbian vampirism, but with a lot of sadism that I feel would exist when a hundrends year old apex predator is horny on main for humans. I want to explore themes of boundaries, consent, and knowing your worth in the context of queer coming of age, at least in my "first novel".
♡ i like punk and metal and the occasional bits of pop. Been listening to a lot of heavier psych refently and being in love. Stuff like Blackwater Holylight and Ruby The Hatchet is v inspiring. Feminazgul (anarchist, queer, feminist black metal) is something im getting into more these days, but it's a slower burn.
♡ leatherdykedom! I love, at least the idea of, bdsm and leather fetishism but it def hits me right in the budding vegan in me (I'm vegetarian and slowly moving over as I have more access and time). Vegan leather options often are plastic or im not sure are strong enough for bdsm. Certainly none of the gear I've seen looks sturdy.
The zeen Fist is amazing and I def wana buy the newest issue. Poking around queer leather history is certainly more exciting.
Currently writing a poem thats essentially just me begging for that sweet dom mommy to (consensually!) ruin me.
Reading my way through queer ultraviolence from /f/queer's wiki has been nice, but slow.
First off: thank you for the link, I'm p excited by it!
My understanding was that a lot of synthetic leather was made of plastic, which is what my issue with it is.
Apple skin leather is one ive seen. I mean, ethos of leathersex and the habits involved in and surrounding it are more important than actual leather tbh, but "leather" aesthetic is still p hot.
Why I'm looking for aesthetic alternatives while trying to explore S/M.
I mostly just want to explore receiving pain. I've naturally given myself some pretty painful things, due to injecting my hormones and I want to explore that side of the pain/pleasure coin. Domination, role-playing, servitude, vulnerability and playing with my vulnerabilities. There's an ocean of possibility that I'm a bit more certain that I want every day.
fake leather (vinyl I think) strapon harnesses are fantastic, easy to clean, and super durable. I'm guessing you'd have some luck with other BDSMy things
one of the best sex purchases over the years
Tbh, my main thing lately has been trying to destroy the dichotomous conceptions I maintain as habits that then create false emotions. In practical terms, that means that when I have sentiments that pop up that I reason with myself as "good" or something else as any value judgement sort of thing, I examine why I need to analyse it at all. At that my analysis will never fully capture the whole picture of the "thing" that I'm making disctinctions about in my mind. I apparently can't explain it too well, but it is very freeing.
what are some other dichotomies you've worked on
-Is/are vs is/are not in general -Correct vs incorrect amount of effort to dedicate to tasks -Being a good partner vs just being
Yesterday I came to understand that ideologies are nothing more than relationships with stories. I guess Im kind of seeking to see the stories behind the masks so as to end the relationships altogether.
I’m at school right now, so that’s taking up most of my time, but when I can I like to work on my vegetable garden, reading, cooking, learning languages
Music is one. I recently found a patch of reed and I have been trying to make some kind of instrument, but whatever it is, I can barely play it. Yet, at least.
Another encompasses everything that is not capitalism— foraging, gardening, old-fashioned ways of doing things, complaining about capitalism... wait, is that too political? I feel that it can be hard to separate “political” things from individual ones— separating oneself from the Great Evil Whatever-it-is breeds more personal interest in things that are outside of it. I have had interests in some of these in the past, but realising their importance in not feeding the Great Evil Whatever-it-is has reinforced and expanded them.
Worldbuilding is another one— making fictional worlds and cultures.
Video games, tabletop games, cats, alcohol, history.
