Für alle die nicht Betroffen sind und die noch ihrer Bundestagsabgeordneten vom neuen Selbstbestimmungsgesetz überzeugen wollen, hab ich hier mal eine Blaupause gebaut. Ihr könnt und sollt die im Idealfall noch ein bisschen abändern, aber so passt schon mal der Rahmen: https://drop.leah.is/pTnRAJRz #AlleGutenDingeJETZT
uspol(l), confederate monuments, this "question" wow
I mean look at this wording. Fucking hell, if this thing were any more loaded its name would be Bill Gates! Starting with the question itself, "honoring" "leaders" which by itself sounds positive. Then the choices, between preserving "a historical symbol" and being "offensive to some people." That's the EXACT dishonest framing used by proponents of these monuments, wow I wonder if that could have biased the results?? Maybe??
If you would like to read a fairly short book, here's a PDF of Are Prisons Obsolete, by Angela Davis:
meta, unsolicited advice
if you feel helpless, like you're not doing enough, stay quiet and listen. it is important to bear witness. if you're conflicted about what your voice can add to the conversation, it is okay to just listen.
processing happens at its own pace. when something feels right, you will know it.
take your time, but keep your heart open. recognize the pain of others. feel your own pain. hold the present, so that it can become the past, and then we will enter the future together.
“Street Somatics- tips for regulating nervous systems in uprisings” by Prentice Hemphill, instagram vid link w/captions
“...We can be grateful for the wisdom of our bodies that know how to turn up and at the same time we can self and co-regulate our nervous systems to cycle down so that we can be in the work for justice for the long haul.”
Kyaaaah! Hätte dieses Jahr fast den #TagDerTransGrandiosität (6.6.) verpasst /o\ Gut, dass mich 1 befreundete Person grad dran erinnert hat. Ohoh. Wie feier ich den Tag denn jetzt, mit diesem Corona.

I'm interested in people's experience with substituting progesterol alongside with estrogen. More specifically:
Do you take prog. all the time, or do you follow a "intake/no intake" regime?
If the latter, how do you experience (physically and emotionally) the "transition" periods from intake to no intake, and vice versa?
I'm following a 2-week on/2-week off cycle, and would love to compare my experiences with others'.
I ran across this design on Redbubble and thought it might be of interest so some of my GNC friends.
(the product design is a men | women bathroom sign that says "neither is me but I still gotta pee")
when I say things like "people should, in the general case, dance," please understand that I don't mean you should dance well, or that it is too late for you and you'll never learn. neither thing is true. you probably already dance in some contexts, to some degree, and I'm glad, and you should continue dancing. I'm saying you should dance until you're comfortable doing it and you've found ways to move rhythmically that you enjoy. it will be good for you and your relationship to yoyr body— *no,* I am not talking about a cardio habit! I'm talking about learning how to make your body feel good — and it's a cultural knowledge that's prerequisite to other knowledges and helps you connect with other people
