I am currently working on yet another session on polyamory, but instead of doing a 101 as I always do, I want to emphasize the intersection with class.
I grew up in a working class family so I have made my own experiences with this, but since I’d prefer to keep my session scientific I would love to hear some more thoughts on either experiences with classism in polyamorous context or on how non-monogamous communities are perceived by y‘all through a class lense.
I dont know who needs to hear this but stop dimming your light. Trust yourself, lean into the things that drive and fuel you. Dont shy away from them.
Oh yeah, I made a #Fiasco Google Doc template a while back, because I wasn't liking what I was finding elsewhere. Doesn't use official fonts, prints into 5 landscape 11"x8.5" pages, one for the front matter then relationships/needs/locations/objects.
Please boost and make copies and use!
MY PRONOUNS. MY PRONOUNS ARE THEY/THEM RIGHT? AND SOMEONE ON TINDER JUST CALLED ME. THUDE. THEY CALLED ME THUDE IM SCREAMING THATS SO GOOD"
remember! if your local timeline doesn't make you wanna jump into the community you're in or feel warm & fuzzy like the cutie you are it's ok to try other communities!
you don't want to stay somewhere that makes you feel like you're just tolerating it cause you "have to" like on those big branded blue sites
find the fediverse community (or communities!) that makes you wanna go–
"this place is so good!!!"

Really cool thing, connecting folks who want to contribute to #opensource projects but aren't fluent English writers/speakers with proofreaders and general tutors for kind critique. I hope to see more of this, both to diversify technical communities and get non-traditional technical people involved.
The route goes from 43rd St & Skillman Ave to 58th St & Woodside Ave. (The 40th St stop on the 7 train is near the start, and the 61st St 7 train/Woodside LIRR stop is near the end.)
My group is meeting near the start point at 11 AM. I'll be carrying a whole pile of small bisexual and pansexual flags, feel free to join. If you're on Bookface I can send you an event.
It formally starts at noon. It's not long - I think it'll be over by 4 PM.
Hope to see you!
St. Patrick's Day is a big deal in Woodside and Sunnyside, two Irish neighborhoods in Queens. St. Pat's For All is a parade for LGBT+ groups excluded from the 'main' parade could still celebrate the spirit of the day. https://www.stpatsforall.org/about-us
The parade happens every year - including this one, THIS SUNDAY! I'm marching with PFLAG and the NY Area Bisexual Network, and I'd love to see you there! More in the next toot! 1/2

Someone on Reddit just used the phrase "them fatale" (rhymes with femme fatale) and um, it's perfect and I want it to be everywhere and it might be the joking-but-serious gender descriptor I have been looking for all along?????
self-care tip of the day:
try and imagine a functioning city of chubby little baby chicks. do they have little peeper jobs and peep cars? how are decisions made? do they elect a little peep mayor? do they have a sash? who made the sash? what do the peep citizens do for fun? do you think any of the peeps are like, fancy french waiters with a fancy moustache and dinner clith draped over one feathery arm?
consider these things instead of going to work or whatever.
