Just read the whole thing about access intimacy by Mia 😅
"Access intimacy is something I am coming to understand that I need in my life; something that I cannot (and don’t want to) live without. I need it to literally be my whole self because access is such an intimate part of my life as a queer physically disabled woman of color adoptee. Without it, relationships exist under a glass ceiling or split by thick frosted windows, with huge pieces of myself never being able to be reached. Without it, there is survival, but rarely true, whole connection."
Hi, I'm Jules
I'm a 30+ enby trans person living in Germany. I like reading & writing, knitting & spinning yarn, photography (my heart is still with filmphotography). I love plants & caring for them, being out in the woods, cuddling my dog. Sometimes I draw things, but it's complicated. I want to spend more time doing it.
I just like making things.
I am disabled in different ways. You can talk to me in English, German and French. This account is more cozy than @Jules
I think she actually gave me more and took less money.
I don't spin a lot of Alpaca but I really love how it works with the Ramie (which is one of the few plant fiber that are not chemically processed) and the Alpacas are local and it was all just so nice ^^
I went to a market with lots of small sustainable businesses and private people showing and selling their beautiful things.
It was nice to look at all of it, but I can't afford most of the things.
But there was a person who sold wool (yarn and spinning fiber) in small batches. She collects the fiber from her neighbors and people with only a few animals and dyes it herself and works with a small place where she gets the fiber carded.
I got 200g of a beautiful Alpaca-Ramie blend!
(preface: I'm autistic and brown.)
Autistic while Black or brown needs to be discussed a lot more in #ActuallyAutistic spaces. As in discussed daily. "How do we support autistics of color" needs to be just part of what we talk -- and act -- on.
I'm sure some white autistics will say (and do say) "race doesn't matter, all that matters is that someone is autistic".
I finally managed to write a scene I wasn't able to see clearly for months now. It's done and more dramatic things can continue to happen
I'm not saying it's the best browser out there. I'm just saying this is the only web experience I know, really. I don't switch apps once I am used to them. My autistic brain just appreciates consistency a lot. So please don't die, Firefox. I need you. No matter how much you suck sometimes ^^
I've never really used any other browser than Firefox in almost 15 years (that's how long it is around), even on mobile. This is just how my experience of the web looks and feels like since it left the early stages (back in the 90s I used Netscape Navigator most of the time).
casual abelism / a request Show more
i've been noticing an increase of casual abelism on the fediverse recently. Sometimes usage of oppressive language is used that really really gets to me and makes it hard to engage with toots and the fediverse at all for awhile.
I know many of these words are very ingrained in our culture and vocabulary, but it would mean a lot to me personally if we all were a bit more aware of our casual abelism and worked on it.

Do we have a working, federated blogging thing by now?
"absorption", 2008; undergrad work.
i wasn't overthinking my work as much then, and i don't think this is the sort of photograph i could make today.
i made a 44"x84" print of this, which got stolen off the wall where it was hung for display. i've always appreciated that theft as a high compliment :)
