Hey my enbies, I'm looking for some info about being nb. I identify as this and enjoy it very much. But I'd like to know more about this : where does it comes from, who said it first, which country, etc. So if you have articles, books, a rosetta stone or even authors about these I'd be glad!

Can we dispense with the idea that capitalism drives innovation? Especially in things like for-profit healthcare and the like, but really across the board.
You know what drives innovation? Not profit motive, but sharing information and techniques. Capitalism promotes trade secrets and preventing other people from using and building on your work. It's geared toward a kind of innovation, the kind that maximizes profits. But for everything else, sharing is far and away more effective.
It's neat to see one of the biggest events in gaming encourage the sharing of pronouns and make the event visibly queer friendly. On a broader sense, allowing people to exclusively use chosen names, whether it's their streaming handle or just a name they'd prefer to go by, is an interesting change in social norms that's becoming more generally acceptable.
I called my Representative this afternoon to lodge a request that she urge House Judiciary to introduce new articles of impeachment for Trump's catastrophic mishandling of the situation in Iraq and Iran. (I also took the opportunity to remind her that Flint still doesn't have potable water.)
If you live in the US, when you get the chance, I suggest you do the same. (Representatives also have email contact via their government website, if you're phone-anxious.)

"We are all terrified but control yourself and do not have any terrifying predictions in mind. Cry. But don't write scary tweets about something that hasn't happened. Don't run in advance. Have mercy on each other. The horror makes one crazy. Hold the hand of a real person sitting next to you."

Be a pronoun professional in three easy steps:
1) Add your pronouns to your profile. If you don't want to say or don't mind what pronouns people use for you, consider noting that instead so people know what's what.
2) Discover and use the pronouns people have in their bios before interacting with them.
3) If you don't know their pronouns default to they/them and don't presume anything.
