queer culture is tweeting at your partner to ask them if they can make you a coffee.

"Distance Instagram from other social networks"

This shit is why the fediverse will thrive.

Facebook is too scared to let other social networks be mentioned along side them 😂

a "cashless society" scares me.

the freedom to pay, anonymously, in cash is important!

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

Feeling overwhelmed try a few of these...

Deleting an app
Muting a group chat
Saying no to another commitment
Cutting down your to-do list
Limiting your consumption of bad news
Spending less time in toxic environments

Reminder to dyadic trans folks:

Do not use intersex people as anecdotes or ‘gotcha’ to defend trans rights, they’re not props for your arguments.

Do not group intersex people under non-binary identities.

Support intersex activists on the issues they prioritize, not on what you think is important.

Avoid voyeuristic descriptions of intersex genitals. Those are not cute anecdotes on diversity. Jikes.

Most importantly:
Invite intersex speakers. Do not speak for them. Do not speak over them.
