Hi everyone, I'm Grem and I'm totally new to mastodon. I'm demigender (she/her).

I'm predominantly an LGBT high fantasy writer, currently working towards self-publishing my first novel.

I'm also big into video gaming. I love me a good story-driven RPG.

I have a very antisocial cat named Morrigan, and nothing cheers me up like a good cup of tea. :)

I'd say I wish I could communicate to my cat why I keep taking away the plastic she's trying to eat, but it's not like she'd listen anyway

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

here's a take that's not that hot because it's clearly painfully obvious:
IQ tests are racist
IQ tests are ableist
IQ tests do not provide any actual basis for intelligence, wisdom, ability, or creativity which are abstract concepts all varying in meanings and degrees, and using IQ score numbers and results as a way to prove ones superiority over others is disingenuous as fuck and completely false.

It's been a while since I've made you all look at pictures of my grumpy cat and her big ears so here is a picture of my grumpy cat and her big ears.

I keep forgetting to share this - I couldn't share it while I was working on it because it was a commission for someone as a gift for someone else, so I had to wait until they received it!

This took me out of my comfort zone something fierce and I kept doubting that I could pull it off, but I love how it came out. They wanted a mandala that looked like those blue ink porcelain floral patterns. It's coloured with Faber-Castell Pitt pens, which blend very nicely.
