I'm going to try to post :blobpeektrans: stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.

If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

I thought you might like to know that, according to the extremely unscientific methodologies I have at my disposal, MSP Social is really :gay:

Do not feel like you are under any obligation to contribute! You're welcome here whether or not you choose to support financially... In fact, posting and hanging out here is the best form of support. But anyone who can afford and wants to support this community effort through more than their presence is welcome to do so.

It could grow into something more, but it doesn't have to!

honestly i feel like there should be a word for the moment that a queer person gets out of their straight marriage and suddenly comes out as everything and its this really tumultuous but joyful point of change

My summary/notes:

* The price of an "entry level" bike has crept up in the past few years
* Pretty much every bike made by a major manufacturer is a technological marvel compared to bikes of 10 years ago. It's hard to make a bad choice
* Bike fit is by far the most important factor

Doing the ARR sightseeing log is an exercise in going to a place and waiting for 15-30 minutes waiting for the right time of day, only to have the weather change making the whole effort wasted. Yes, even after you talked to the skywatcher.

This (PDF) affidavit is worth reading just for the chatlog between one of the insurrectionists and a very unsympathetic instagram follower.

"I hate that I even know you"

Before I came out to myself I couldnt understand that hating getting my hair cut was a manifestation of gender dysphoria. After experiencing the relief and happiness of finally letting my hair grow did I understand it for myself...

And THEN I learned it's a COMMON transfemme experience.

The more trans people talk about their experiences, the sooner trans kids and adults can find insight into their own experiences that they might otherwise never understand.

Tampopo 

I can't think of another food-based movie that so touches on life, sex, death, the ridiculous and food in such a comprehensive way that Tampopo does.

Sure not writing image descriptions is one kind of action that can make a community less welcoming to disabled people.

But honestly, hardline proclamations that everyone MUST write image descriptions or they're BAD (which I'm seeing more often)...also feel pretty unwelcoming!

Even as someone who benefits from image descriptions, I don't benefit from the lack of nuance around disability issues. I don't benefit from being used as a stick to beat people with who aren't writing image descriptions.

Remember a week ago when right wing terrorists added "retake the US Capitol after a coup attempt" to the list of consequences of the Trump presidency?

I've noticed that suddenly entire days can transpire with neither major news nor endless amplification of right-wing propaganda now that Trump is banned from Twitter.

I forgot what that was like.

Anyway, the twin cities metro area only has 3% of non ICU hospital beds free right now.

"Do not run from the right-wing charge that you are giving people free stuff in order to gain their votes: actually, just give them stuff. People need stuff. They need it now; they needed it yesterday; they needed it ten years ago. It is not nefarious to make people’s lives better in the hope that they will keep you in power so that you can continue to make their lives better"

YEP. That's the shit. :blobchef: 👍
