Uninspired title is uninspired. Anyway, two things for this post.

1. Coming-out, sorta.

I am, well... nonbinary, likely some flavor of girl.

I'm a bit sick of the constant assumption that internet users are male by default, or that 'there are no girls on the internet'. Other genders, trans or not, are here too.

If you don't know, you can either ask or use gender-neutral prounous, it's still better than perpetrating the 'masculine by default' norm.

2. Network shito

The issue I mentioned with the DS receiving packets addressed to the host, also happens the other way around, ie the host receives traffic addressed to the DS. This might be the cause for the lag I observed.

Still thinking of a workaround to this. May need to read about network routing and all.

That's all folks!

I know about the 'gender neutral dude' thing. it's just that when you're a trans girl, that kind of thing puts you in doubt, "did I get misgendered or did they just use 'gender neutral dude'?", you see.

Don't be so quick to get offended. That's really the easy answer. Guys can be weird and they don't like thinking about a girl seeing them be weird. So they assume everyone is male. That's my theory at least.

Good luck tho.

I seem to be having issues compiling melonDS on Solus, with undefined references to LAN_PCap, LAN_Socket, and DlgWiFiSettings, any help here?
At least I'm not having the issues I used to have, with CMake being unable to find files inside the PCap folder (I had to manually change Platform.cpp, as well as some of the PCap.h files to use absolute paths for CMake to recognize them).

I've been following your emulator, but this is the first I've commented, and it's surprisingly not about the emulator itself. I'm nonbinary too, but I use mostly male pronouns with some female pronouns and other concepts (I want to be 'pretty', not 'handsome', for example) mixed in. Why those instead of more neutral pronouns? Because even though people don't mean it that way, by using they/them/etc it makes me feel like they're 'pluralizing' me -- like they can't wrap their heads around the fact that one person can possibly be neither male nor female and so they're treating me like some kind of split personality. Long story short, I'm a me, not an us, and to be called they/them feels like I'm not being recognized as the singular person I am.

Anyways, different strokes for different folks, and I'll call you they/them if you want me to even though it feels rude to me (or the awkward-sounding xe/xem if you prefer), and I always try to ask when meeting someone new, just wanted you to know you're not alone in the struggle.

Oh, and just a quick tip if you're not *used to* talking about this (I don't know your situation)... if someone asks you if you are straight/gay/etc, you may benefit from the terms 'androsexual' (attracted to male anatomy) and 'gynesexual' (attracted to female anatomy). Since they don't actually make an issue of your own gender (or anatomy, even), they can be very useful... ;)
