Bicalutamid Androcur Cyproteronacetat trans Medikamente 

Ich will endlich von dem Androcur weg. Habe gestern mit einem Arzt gesprochen, der keine Ahnung hat, aber wohlwollend ist, und jetzt habe ich hier Bicalutamid liegen. Nun frage ich mich (ich nehme momentan 12,5 mg Cyproteronacetat), ob ich sozusagen Androcur absetzen muss, bevor ich das Bicalutamid anfange? Auf trans-Seiten habe ich gelesen, dass sich 25-50mg anbietet und ich würde mit 25mg anfangen. Habt ihr Erfahrungen, ob so ein paar Tage "Runterfahren" sinnvoll sind?
Ansonsten: Was habt ihr für Erfahrungswerte zu Bicalutamid?
Gerne teilen. :)

Becky Albertalli's experiences are heartbreaking as hell, not least because "Love, Simon" holds a special place in my own heart, coming out when it did and leading me to think "what if…" medium.com/@rebecca.albertalli

depol, Corona-Leugner, Nazis, technische Frage 

Die Corona-Leugner, Nazis, Verschwörungstheoretiker*innen und andere vernetzen sich ja super viel über Telegram-Gruppen. Haben Technik-affine Menschen hier schon Möglichkeiten gefunden die dort zu stören? Das Deplatforming voran zu treiben? Z.B. durch gezielte (Spam) Bots? geht sowas technisch?
(gerne auch boosten, falls eure Follower*innen sowas wissen könnten)

corona, drosten, 2. welle in de 

die zeit hat den artikel von christian drosten öffentlich zugänglich gemacht, der vorher hinter paywall war: zeit.de/2020/33/corona-zweite-

und ich bin sehr positiv überrascht, dass er in einer relativ einfachen sprache geschrieben ist. kaum lange, verschachtelte sätze, sehr klar und verständlich finde ich das. hier mal grosse wertschätzung meinerseits!

mfers really gotta learn that queerness is about Breaking The Rules On Attraction And Gender, not making a new set of "more inclusive" rules. the cishets won't respect you anymore if the Queerness Rules are more coherent.

"if you allow bi lesbians, cishet men won't respect lesbians' lack of attraction to men!" is an inherently flawed and self-defeating way of thinking. the cishet men won't respect you any more either way; stop trying to *earn* their respect, and start *demanding* it.

PSA: cloth and paper masks worn to help prevent spread of Coronavirus (and other diseases) do not need to form a seal to be effective.

They do two things:
a. capture most of the droplets you exhale/cough/sneeze out
b. slow down (and thus reduce the range of) any droplets not caught

If you have two layers of fabric covering your nose and mouth, you are wearing a fabric mask correctly.

If breath reflects off of them and escapes around the edges, that is just fine -- the bulk of the droplets were caught, and those few that leave around the edges are slowed a ton. Mission accomplished.

Misinformation on this point (most of which seems to be repeating proper fit and donning for PPE masks, which do need to form a seal) is leading people to not wear masks because they believe they are difficult or impossible to wear correctly.

Isn't cherry picking a little like saying "If I like this ancient, holy relic, I can take it and put it in my museum, along with other ancient holy relics from very different places, and also with non holy things." And what allows that kind of cherry picking, or theft? It's power. It's raw, unmitigated, racist power.

Cultural appropriation is such an interesting fight that we have on the left and in this country, because we often treat it to mean "Cultural theft" which implies the existence of "Cultural property", ideas and practices that can belong to one group of people. While I don't necessarily disagree with that framework, I do think sometimes it might be more productive to talk of Erasure, Fetishization, and Commodification.

People don't want to hear this because people want to cling to this delusion that the fedi is some progressive place but the reality is that Twitter is a safer place for Black/Brown folks.

That's how awful the fedi is. That's how awful the fedi wants to be.

immigrant family take 

and look this is no shade to people who have those experiences! i'm glad for anyone to take opportunities to have cool trips and see different places and try different things!

it's just that when these things are presented as THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE or when people project over my own travels as EXOTIC FARAWAY PLACES, it grinds my nerves, like those places don't have long established histories of human communities, like it's a given that anything different is scary and weird.
