Hi! We're the Weld. We also go by passerine(s) and Fidgetcetera. We're a cripple queer plural system, made up of four partitions - Nemmy Nyms, Salix Quercus, Spectra, and Melody Tesh.
We're physically, mentally, and cognitively disabled. We're plural, trans, queer, white, nonbinary, bisexual, otherkin lesbians. We have ADHD, we're autistic, we're depressed, and we have chronic leg pain. There's always more to get into, but these things summarize a lot of what our experience often is shaped by.
We lean towards being some kind of anarchists, with all this in mind. Destroy hierarchies, support and uplift oppressed people. What that means in practice is hard to say and to keep written on a site we intend to be a relatively static document. the most fixed thing about the Weld is that we're always ready to change what we believe.
We use fæ/flux and key/kem pronouns as a whole system. Key/kem is... Lower priority but still nice. Both are preferable to they/them. Fae can be spelled with or without the æ, and pronunciations are standard to the words, with "fær" homophonic to "fair". Key is pronounced like the thing you use to open doors, "kem" rhymes with the first syllable in "chemistry", "kir" is pronounced rhyming with "here" or "there", either is fine.
Additionally, when using our names: "the Weld system" is rather formal, but you can just call us Weld, or the Weld. Think of it like when a superhero is named "the Flash" and how it depends on context. Weld is the name of our system of plurality, while Mx. Ace Fucking Jaycee is more a name given to the body we inhabit. passerine (always lowercase) is a bit of a nickname, and sometimes plural (passerines). Fidgetcetera, shortened to Fidget, is more of a username.
