I feel like I should update my bio to actually include a description of a human personality but I'm not sure I have one

identity crisis over my bio 

I kinda wanna remove my pride flags,, not because I no longer identify with them but because I'm not as wrapped up in queer identity politics as I was when I got here, so there's no need for me to be That Specific with strangers upfront.

identity crisis over my bio 

so,, now I'm trying to figure out what /do/ I want to tell strangers upfront and the answer is,, not much? I know folks often list their various minority statuses but?? I don't tend to find that useful when screening for ppl to follow. I don't care who knows that stuff about me but it's not rly pertinent so why would I put that up front?

identity crisis over my bio 

things that I have found interesting to me in bios are usually occupations and hobbies, as they tend to be a better indicator of what the person actually posts. with inherent identities like race or disabilities, it's usually smth they mention when relevant but not a focal point,, unless some variant of "activist" is also listed. ,,,unfortunately,, I don't rly post abt my hobbies or work consistently enough to consider them a worthy of knowing upfront.

the only thing I do consistently online is complain tbh but idk if "I have a new midlife crisis every week" is exactly how I'd like to introduce myself

feel like this is good enough. touches on several standard marginalised identities, gives zero practical information, and has a bad joke. perfect.

@lemememeringue serious question: isn't this exactly why Kids These Days use the word "disaster"

identity crisis over my bio 

@fool yeah but what counts as "disaster" is,,, inconsistent. luckily, I have been assured by people from many walks of life that I fit the definition no matter what it is.

@lemememeringue just call yourself "The Last Shitposter"

@fool to maintain such a title involves quite a bit of murder, mark

@lemememeringue that's the beauty of it: you can just lie
