Shitty queerphobic "charity", the usual PSA around this time of year
I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but since they're harassing people to donate again this year...
Do not, under ANY circumstances, donate to the Salvation Army.
There are billionfold better charities out there with the same goals that the SA claim to strive for, like Shelter.
Chang'e 5 has successfully performed an autonomous rendezvous and docking in lunar orbit. That's the first time that's ever been done, and only the eighth docking in lunar orbit (the first seven were all done non-autonomously by pilots on Apollo missions: 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17). Should be back on Earth in about a week - it's waiting in lunar orbit for a TEI window.

if the only thing that defines queer community is shared experiences of oppression when everyone is liberated queer community becomes obsolete. If the thing that defines queer community or lesbian community or trans community or all community is shared experiences of joy and life then more people are invited to the party, ya, but also then even when everyone is liberated we still get to love each other and nothing dissolves. everything is fine.
do cis people they can just use whatever they're grouping people for to describe that group?? like for instance, if you're trying to describe the various people who experience misogyny you can just say "people who experience misogyny". it's entirely inclusive, and it's more accurate/pertinent to your point
