request for book recs, boosts welcome
One of my dear friends has a child who is beginning to question their gender identity (specifically, they have questions about what it means to be nonbinary, as they believe that they may be!).
Her kiddo is eleven and is looking for books about coming out as nonbinary and support/affirmation for those that are.
Book recs for mom and kid would be greatly appreciated. ty!

A #swallowtail #butterfly, photographed using the classic technique of desperately following it with the camera and clicking the shutter when I hope it's pointing vaguely in the right direction to at least catch it in frame and it probably won't be in focus anyway but with luck it'll at least be identifiable and...hey, not bad!
(Otherwise I've basically given up trying to actually aim at butterflies when they're flying.)
"Hi, I loved your article on [subject I've never written about] at [link to tag archive and/or a blog post on another subject entirely that might have included two words separated by a half-dozen paragraphs that could conceivably have matched a search vaguely related to the subject they are talking about]. I really think my article at [spammy site] would be a big help to your readers!"
Come to think of it, I don't think I've had a donut since last March. I used to only have them when someone brought a box in at work, or occasionally I'd stop by a donut shop on the way to work. Neither of those have happened for a while.
You can finally make your Venmo friends list private!
