#Berlin people: Wanna help with my bra? Wait, it's not what you think of... I never had a good bra, they never really fit somehow and i think i just don't know what i need. Does anybody know of a safe place i as a non-binary trans person could go to to get checked and fitted? A shop, a specific person in a shop you know maybe, even a sex shop if it's possible there. Anything is good.
Please boost, thank you.

Having trouble with pronouns? Try this one weird trick:
When you misgender someone, and anyone takes the time to correct you, say "Thank you." This will help you take the correction gracefully, and remind you to appreciate that someone believes you want to get others' pronouns right.
Plus, when you develop positive associations with those corrections (instead of shame), it makes it so much easier for your brain to accept the information!
I just stumbled across this on Etsy. I've often heard trans-masculine nonbinary folks say they want a packer that does not even remotely resemble real body parts. DarbParts meets that need with unique soft sculptures for packing. They are handmade by a nonbinary artist, who accepts commissions for custom ones. These packers have been shown in a gallery as art exhibits! The packers look like mountain landscapes, ice cream desserts, rocket ships, glittering snails, lacy ornaments, bunches of feathers, and other creations.

Make sure to not do the following things:
- be sexist.
- be antiblack
- judge based on appearances.
She shit because she was a cop. Don't insinuate she's white. Don't call her ugly. Don't make jokes about women.
She's done enough bullshit to just make fun of that.
Remember, if you only respect race or gender or appearance when it's someone you like, then you don't actually respect BIPOC people and you don't actually respect women and you don't actually respect people who aren't conventionaly attractive
of fucking course antisemitism is part of euro folklore, antisemitism is a constitutive element of european culture and identity
european xians: *demonize and terrorize jews for more than a millenium and a half*
white euro writer: i'm sure there's nothing charged about borrowing some folkoric images of ugly fairies and placing them in social roles identified with jews
this isnt really germane to jkr's terf shit (which is vile and others have spoken much better addressing it) but i've seen ppl defend the antisemitism in her portrayal of goblins by saying that she's basing them on european folklore, not antisemitic imagery and like
why do you think there's no antisemitic imagery in european folklore?

A reminder about fat people:
*Fat people are loveable
*Fat people are desirable
*Fat people are sexual (if they want to be)
*Fat people are allowed to eat whatever the hell they want
*Fat people are allowed to show their tummy and thighs and however much skin they want
*Fat people dont have to show any skin they dont want either!
And above all:
*Fat people don't owe you a fucking thing. Not an explanation, not a reason, not a performance to fit ourselves into some model fat that you can with Good or Bad
*I love fat people
the end, good day

Anyone who non-ironically uses the term "echo chamber" to describe people doing self-care is a troll who you can safely block and mute
It's a big jump to go from the legit observation that echo chambers exist, i.e. "right-wing trolls only listen to other fashy people" all the way over to "and that's why you must listen to every reply guy"
