I am in the same boat, more or less Methyl.

My brain returns "Technically male".  Internally, I really don't have a gender identity, and find the concept of shaping one's internal monologue around such a notion to be absurd.  (this does strongly color my views about people and their sexual antics, in any form.)

Just be you, and let the world suffer from its collective neurosis.

I realized that I don't really care about my gender. Like, I query the gender file in my brain, it's blank for a couple of seconds, and eventually it says "male, presenting as I-do-what-I-want-linity with bias towards masculinity" and then a bunch of numbers after that. It's almost reluctant. Is there a label for this "I don't care, but I guess I'm a boy if you really want to" situation? I wonder what it means. Does it mean I reject gender entirely, or is it just apathy?

There's some basis to my thinking there. I couldn't give less of a shit about anyone's gender; I rank it as one of the least important things about a person. To maintain consistency, surely that must mean I must not care about my own too. Or maybe not; expecting consistency out of an inherently inconsistent system is the surest path to madness.

I'm confused. I wonder what it all means, if anything.
This turns out to basically be how the majority of people feel if you ask. Most people do not care beyond knowing their biological sex.

Well I'm absolutely sure I'm a girl. Admittedly somewhat tomboyish but still female. It's part of my identity.

There's no such thing as identity, the whole thing is a bourgeois concept.

Im pretty sure identity predates wealth by millenia.

Anyway I think we already had this conversation before? The end result was people most of the time dont think about their genders? Ie I am a male, I like females, I dont care about anyone else, to each its own kind of thing?

And fox of course is lying, everyone knows the dudes in internet are men, the woman are men, and the kids are FBI agents.

Also meth, how all the university camp went? Already in lockdown or something?

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Here? No lockdown yet. Some COVID cases appear to have spread to my state, mostly from prisoners being shuffled around to different states and the prison guards getting infected; that has to be some kind of poetic justice for the sheer stupidity of the idea. Very few cases in my district, however. Still, the number of cases is rising exponentially overall, which is a worrying trend.

As for back home... cases appear to be rising at an even greater rate... and someone from on the same street as my house is infected. Talk about hitting close to home. I'm not counting on it reopening anytime soon; I'm almost certain lockdown will be extended there.

Yeah, also curious about this. Getting enough to eat?

Food-wise, I think I'm doing fine. I'm not starving, so that's a start. My selection of food is a bit odd for many reasons (including a limited selection of available food at the supermarket I went to), but I'll say it: instant ramen, baked beans, milk powder, crackers, peanut butter and apples. Will I suffer malnutrition due to a lack of vitamins and minerals given this limited set of food?

The water cooler is still functional, and it has remained functional throughout my stay. That's actually lucky; some blocks have ones that don't work, so they have to come to my block to get water.

Yes. That is not a sustainable diet.

Many of the items I suggested CAN actually be obtained at the Dollar General 'Food desert', so try there if the local market does not have what you need. Powdered egg is indeed a special commodity, but you can sneak around your bank's "Minors cannot shop online" bullshit by getting a walmart money card, which processes like a visa, and which you can buy/reload at the register (for a premium).

I don't think they have those in Darkest Indonesia.

Muscle memory is a hell of a drug.

Related to that, I've found out curry powder is actually remarkably good in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I don't know what I was expecting out of mistaking the cinnamon for curry powder, but still better than baseline PB&J wasn't it.

Curry powder is also great in coffee.

Better or less good than cinnamon and a little chili powder?

I think I forgot to mention that I have no clue on if they'll let me deliver to the uni. I know for official documents, sure, that's allowed, but for a student's personal items..? I don't think they'll approve of it, even if it is food. Then again, I don't know. I've already asked the appropriate WhatsApp group for this, so now I'm just waiting on a response. I expect it sometime tomorrow when everyone's actually awake and not either already asleep or preparing for bedtime. That is, if they answer.

(Talking about tomorrow when you're on the other side of the world from the US (and similar timezones), which is where a decent proportion of y'all are, is probably confusing. It's daytime there, isn't it? It'll be night for you by the time morning comes for me. I'm not quite sure how to notate this in general when the timezones are this far apart. Maybe say "in x hours", but that's dependent on the time of the post, and it's too much precision. Or I could specify the time and timezone, but that's unwieldy. Dammit, timezones.)
