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
Are there any resources for therapists that want to treat psychological trauma in #ActuallyAutistic people?
Looks like I have a thing with large needlecraft projects.
My first #knitting project consists of 20 balls of yarn. For my first #crochet project, I just orderd 57 balls of yarn. It's a small scale mastodon crochet-a-long for the "Havana Blanket" by Tinna Thórudóttir Thorvaldsdóttir, feel free to join @Juju and me! (DROPS is having a cotton sale until July 31) #havanaCAL
I see a lot of new shawls in my future 🔮
I started plying the soft blue rolags I made out of fibre @TQ gave me
It's very pastelly blue and I usually don't go for pastels but this is just very relaxing and nice.
I will have to think hard what to do with the finished yarn though. It might just go out there and find a person who really appreciates this softness
@jules, weil du fragtest: es ist super! fluffig, weich, geschmeidig, aber trotzdem wirkt es zumindest auf den ersten Metern nicht so langweilig wie Merino oder das Neuseeland Lamm. etwas griffiger irgendwie :3 ich find's erstmal super!

We've been scapegoated and cast out from all sorts of communities for millennia, but even as people regarded us with fear, they often regarded us with reverence too.
Cast off from the rest of society but still important.
We have been spiritual leaders and mystics, thinkers and innovators, creators and artists, healers.
We see outside of the lines of what always has been, to what could be.
We have always been an integral part of our communities, even when they denied us.
Neurodivergent pride, using ableist slurs in a reclaiming way Show more
Neurodivergent is such a good word and concept to describe all of us: the outcasts, the weirdos, the monsters, the crazies, the unstable, the brainweird.
We are the people who will never fit into their boxes and that scares them. But when we stand together we have power, a power that they can never know.
I'm proud to be neurodivergent and for this found family of other brainweird folks. Outcasts together fighting for liberation
back from my holidays! which is a sad thing, but I'm glad to be reunited with the working spinning wheel in my home! <3
I'm not doing daily but I'm very much still going! i had so much fun to finish #spinning the rolags by spindle! now they are wound into a plying ball waiting for the ply!
see Image descriptions for details!
