Fremdzuschreibung von Geschlecht 

Wenn irgendwelche Menschen, die von LGBTAIQ+ keine Ahnung haben, ist mir das ja egal. Wenn aber Menschen, die mich besser kennen, mich trotzdem mit unter "cis Männer" zusammenfassen, tut das durchaus weh.

Fremdzuschreibung von Geschlecht, Twitter repost 


Wenn ihr "cis Männer" schreibt, könntet ihr das übrigens in sehr vielen Fällen ersetzen durch " Personen, die ich für cis Männer halte"

Oder "Personen, die sich selbst für cis Männer halten" oder gar "Personen, die sich vielleicht nicht für cis Männer halten, das aber auch nicht korrigieren, weil das alles ziemlich kompliziert und so ein Outing auch nicht immer so leicht ist"

People of fedi who can't do monogamy, what are your reasons for it?

I had resigned myself to love and let go as I had many times over the centuries. But then she fell ill...

With her consent I turned her, saving her from the wasting disease there had been no vaccine nor effective cure for yet.

She adjusted well, but missed gardening. I commissioned a greenhouse but it just wasn't the same by night.

Joy returned fully once webcams were invented; we could finally watch as her garden bloomed in the sun.

Anti-semitism, transphobia 

Yesterday someone posted an article I only just got around to reading.

It deals with antisemitism at SUSE and is very much worth a read:

"The time SUSE, the German Linux company, banned mentioning Jewish holidays."

BIG-ASS NOTE: The same guy is also a self-proclaimed conservative and kind of a transphobe:

So if you're dealing with discrimination at SUSE and want to take him up on his offer to help, maybe think twice.

The "Ugliness" of Bad People 

With all the really ugly things happening in the world right now, a lot of folks are understandably looking for reasons to hate the terrible people who hold the blame. One I see people fixate on time and time again are components of physical appearance, and that sucks. Of all the things to focus on!!

Fascists are ugly because of the things they do, have done, and wish to do; not because of someone's subjective opinions regarding their physical appearance.

"I'm beginning to suspect you just want to steal my children."

"I'm beginning to suspect you're just not a very good parent."

Both children gasped, as did the nobles, guards and servants present.

"Do you intend to attempt to take my children from me?"

"Attempt? If they wish it, I will succeed," stated the Amazon plainly, "Children should be who they are."

The King took deep breaths.

"Fine," he waved a heavily ringed hand, "As long as I have one son and one daughter at the end of it."

"If you do not want him back, we know a warrior tribe that would gladly have him."

"Fine, fine, as long as my child comes back with honed skills."

"You can still send your princess to train with us," said the Amazon.

The king rubbed his temples, "I have only two children and I already sent you my d--"

"No," interrupted the Amazon, pointing to the crowned youth peeking in from a side door, "I sense an Amazonian Spirit within that one."

The King's gaze swiveled towards his other child.

The tall Amazonian warrior stood before the king, beside her; the child he had sent to be trained, considerably scruffier than before, and back far sooner than expected.

"We cannot train this one," she announced.

"Did the princess perform poorly?"

The Amazon shook her head, "No, your son is quite adept but you know the rules; no men in our lands."

"That is not my son," huffed the king, more confused than angry.

The Amazon shrugged.

Here's a thread of polls on abortion; everyone of any gender should be able to participate.

Boosts are encouraged and appreciated, to get the polls out and circulating outside of our usual nonbinary bubble.

If you identify as more than one, e.g. nonbinary man, genderfluid cis man/trans woman, vote in as many polls as you feel apply.

The dragon noodled around the delicious smelling box.

"What is it?" He sniffed excitedly, and I was thankful he was only a little thicker than my thumb, as he was as long as I was tall.

"Seafood pizza," I answered.

He yipped, "With shrimp?"

I nodded, and he looped onto my shoulders.

"Family! Come! Our new human friend Fyn--" he paused and glanced at me.


"Our new human friend Fyn, they brought us a most esteemed offering!"

Art project idea:
"Gendered" bathrooms with e-paper signs that change to different arbitrary symbols every day.

Symbol pairs will be chosen so that each day most people will manage to fit in but each day someone else would actually prefer a third/forth/fifth option.

Examples: Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Apples vs. Bananas, Vim vs. Emacs, Triangles vs. Squares, Coffee vs. Tea, …
you get the idea…

Mein lieber Freund Mohammad, 2014 aus #Syrien über Libyen mit seiner Familie nach Deutschland geflohen, Friseur, wird heute 5 Stunden lang in der Aufnahmestelle für #Geflüchtete vor dem #Ukraine-Krieg, kostenlos Haare schneiden. Als er von mir von der Aufnahmestelle erfuhr, war ihm das sofort ein Anliegen. "Ich weiß, wie man sich da fühlt, da tut ein bisschen Körperpflege gut." Er ist ein wunderbarer #Herzensmensch. 🥰
