BTW this company is eShakti, which is a custom tailoring company from India that I've bought a lot of dresses from. Love their quality, disappointed with their apparent attitudes.
Mother, can you not see I am in the middle of important things?
I have a few reflections and advice on the 5-year anniversary of coming out as transgender:
1. The best piece of advice I got: "Your transition belongs to you." There are no true rules in this. You don't even have to transition, and you certainly don't have to transition to anything established, or understandable to anyone else.
There are no objective body schedules or social milestones. You are free to make up WHATEVER you want. And you are free to push for your standards to be respected and assisted. Transition belongs to you.
Outside of hard-and-fast medical numbers and safety guidelines (real physical safety, not gatekeeping bullshit), you'll encounter invisible rails attempting to direct your experience. It's alright to oppose this, and to call them out. But the core of your experience is your own, and that can't be taken away.
(boosts of this thread are ok)
they pretend like they want to have conversations and discussions, when really they’re waiting for the moment you use a word wrong or get a deep lore fact about their favorite media wrong so they can prove their nerd dominance to their nerd lackeys
Mother, I am ten years old. Surely I can be trusted to make my own decisions.
This collar is humiliating. Especially the bell!
If I jingle it enough, perhaps you will see the error of making me wear it.
Judge Harry Stone sure reads as having ADHD to me.
It's amazing how many future-famous people showed up on Night Court. Brent Spiner, Estelle Harris, Michael Richards, Yakov Smirnoff...
But this was also a wishlist item when I bought my first Roomba 16 years ago. http://beesbuzz.biz/comics/journal/70-Pet-substitution-complex-II
Context: Roomba just rammed into one of my streaming light panels and knocked it straight into my fancy TV screen. If it had detected my voice it could have stopped before things toppled over.
Fortunately nothing was damaged. But that was a close call.
I'd love to see a space colonization 4X game based on the ongoing "here is how we colonize space" videos by Kurzgesagt.
Doesn't https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqwpQarrDwk just feel like a step on a tech tree?
Mother, I would like skritches.
