re: MOGAI vs LGBT discourse 

to be clear, there ARE clear benefits to switching to MOGAI:

- MOGAI stands for Marginalized Orientations, Gender identities, And Intersex. It covers your bases and doesn't single any orientation or gender out specifically while leaving others out entirely or forcing them to be acknowledged under another term (for example, pan and polysexual are considered to be under the bi umbrella, but these folks often feel left out bc they don't use bi as their label)

- There's clearly no room for "the A is for Ally, not Asexual" bullshit, since the letters aren't different orientations and genders.

- You're not constantly adding onto the acronym to try and fill gaps.

- It includes everyone who previously wasn't represented. This includes non-trans N-B folks, xenogender folks, pansexuals, polysexuals, and tons more.

- Succinct and easy to pronounce.

That feeling of spiciness you get from chilli peppers and the cold feeling you get from menthol is not actually part of your sense of taste, smell, or touch. Instead, it's a distinct type of perception called chemesthesis.

Protip if you're proofreading a book: Check whether the app, with which you make notes, can actually export those notes. Apparently ReadEra can't.

I just heard about The StoryGraph, which is currently in beta. Tt's apparently a non-Amazon Goodreads alternative (without being social media), founded by a Black woman. Link to the beta site is at the bottom of this page: thestorygraph.com/
