• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Bringing back the forum - the good, the bad, the ugly

    It's been a long time since I participated in a forum like this. This place, as you can tell from my -ahem- embarrassing post history, was somewhere I used to go on a lot. But small forums just haven't been in vogue for a while. Subsumed under giants like Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, and "dark...

    New decade, new forums

    This is so amazing and thank you for making this update. I may make a new account because severely-depressed-teenage-me made up most of these past posts and it is just a knife to the soul to have to see that. But I'm still deciding. Looking forward to bringing back small forum culture!

    Gender-Neutral Terms?

    It's probably the same reason people would use "they" in this situation - it's how they learned the language.

    Gender-Neutral Terms?

    For the longest time I thought "hir" was pronounced "her" and I was like "what's the point?" Then I realized it's pronounced like "here" and everything made much more sense. I use "they" for "gender unknown/unspecified/not really important." Otherwise, whatever pronoun you prefer.

    Ableist language

    I once saw a black man complain about the use of the word denigrate because its origins are literally "to make black" and he was complaining that it was racist. Now he is right - denigrate means to make something black and by association, to make it worse. But it had no association with black...

    Was talking to a new guy I kinda like. It's not butterflies (not yet, anyway), but it's nice.
