Does anybody want a cute little black cat? She is friendly and reasonably well behaved. My girlfriend picked her up off the street. She does not have any health issues, but may be pregnant and so can't be spayed or vaccinated and you also may actually be receiving several cats if you take her. I understand that it is not an overly appealing offer but she will likely be headed to a shelter soon if we can't find another home for her. We are in Rochester, NY

Why's the middle stripe black? That's the stripe that the designer of the trans flag said was white for transitioning and nonbinary people. Is this version about excluding them?

Please recommend any books, sites, or Youtube videos about forming a healthier understanding of masculinity, men, and manhood? Especially if it isn't cis-het centered? I have "Female Masculinity" on my reading list, but I'm going to need more. (Some mythic/pagan ones would be neat, to balance the Goddess spirituality books that I kind of like.)

Here's some cool art to look at. Lisa Lichtenfels made a career of making lifelike fabric sculptures of people from wire bones, batting flesh, and nylon stocking skin.

if you have other trans authors, esp disabled and trans authors of color to promote, please do so right here in this thread!

in light of how certain transphobic authors continue to be unable to shut up, remember its not good enough to just condemn transphobic artists. you gotta also promote the work of the trans artists you like and give us the visibility that transphobes don't want us to reach.

you can help support me, an indigenous fantasy romance writer: ko-fi.com/newfire

dunking on transphobes is easy, but what about amplifying our voices instead?

Yesterday's doodle was some wishful thinking, but hopefully it's amusing!

Are there any things for Reddit like Block Together? Or something like xkit for filtering out posts with certain keywords?

Hey Seattle friends, anyone want an HP Color LaserJet? It works okay but it's just taking up a lot of space and it's kind of a pain to deal with. I was going to donate it to a thrift shop, but Lifelong doesn't accept printers and Goodwill isn't accepting donations at all right now (at least not in Capitol Hill). It'll also come with some extra toner cartridges.

I appreciate the effort, but my original post said the word I'm looking for is not somatoparaphrenia or asomatognosia. ;) Those conditions have some additional stuff going on with them, apparently... but I'm only judging by Wikipedia, too.

When you listen to a recording of your own voice, does it turn out to be an octave or so higher than how your voice sounds in your head? (I'm wondering if this is the same for everyone, because of how the acoustics work with how sound resonates in our jawbones, or if it's more individual. If you know an article or video that explains more about this, I'm curious to see it.)

What is the medical name for the opposite of phantom limb syndrome, again? As in, the thing where someone feels that a physical part of their body should not be there, which people with BID and some transgender people experience? The word I'm looking for is not somatoparaphrenia, or asomatognosia, though it's probably a type of agnosia.
