“We’re accepting applications for $10,000 Fellowships for women, trans, and non-binary people who would like to work on a project or research at the Recurse Center this winter.
You can work on whatever programming-related project you want. The only hard constraints on what you can do here are that it must involve code, and the code must be open source so that others may freely use, learn from, and build upon it.”
The tumblr account where I first found this has disappeared but I think many of my friends need this as much as I do: https://www.alexlowery.co.uk/the-story-of-mary-the-fairy-changeling/ (wonderful stories about #ActuallyAutistic changelings)
A trans male boxer just became the first one to perform in the US professionally

If you think there's only trans men and trans women btw I'd like you to meet me who is trans and neither of those things

We've heard a lot of advice to move away from Mastodon.social to smaller instances. While https://joinmastodon.org/ is useful, how about some reviews from the people on the ground?
What's good about your instance? What's bad? Who is it for? Any special features or rules?
Tell us, and tag it #InstanceReviews.

To any gay or trans people below the age of 18, just know that I love you. If your mother doesn't accept you then I'm your mother now
Editing pass of my final paper done. Noticed an inconsistency in how I summarized the secondary research in a couple of places, but don't have the brain right now to fix it. But that, and double-checking my paper's formatting, should be the last things.
Also, I came in at exactly the page limit. So that's fun!
"I hear many things about the Devil, but I've never heard he is a great kisser."
The Devil gave me a blank look. "What."
"I guess we'll never know," I said.
He kissed me. He wasn't very good.
But if you ever hear I am a great kisser (and I am), I'll know who you heard it from.
