My intro:

I've just arrived here from queer.town and I hope this will be a good instance for me. I'm a non-binary trans girl (she/her), neurodivergent, pansexual, kink and a-spec with polyam interest.

I'm from Madrid (Spain), so my mother tongue is spanish. I currently work as a hardware and software engineer and as a teacher. I also have a degree in sexology. My interests go through sexuality, feminisms, polyam, kink and GSRDI, but also FreeHardware and FLOSS, and other geek things. And cats!

My cat when we are up: I'm getting sleepy from sleeping so much, I'm going to take another nap.

My cat when someone sleeps: * Runs, trots, steps on you, fights with the other cat, compulsively scratches at doors, meows all over the house*

The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!

survey.gendercensus.com

It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

People on transdermal estrogen HRT with cats, have you seen any behavioral changes in the cats? My almost 9 year old cat has become adolescent meowing a lot, marking walls, aggressive with other cats, has lost a lot of weight... and it coincides with when I started my HRT. He has been like this for weeks.
The vet confirms that it seems to be related.
She has suggested spending several weeks separated from the cat, but it is not feasible.
I need ideas for other solutions, or similar experiences.

"trans" has been defined by Susan Stryker as the movement from a place which you did not choose to a place that you do you choose. freedom from gender oppression means everyone is trans

Deberíamos asustarnos por lo que está pasando en estados unidos, y luchar contra ello como si nos afectase. Por que nos afectará. Sólo es cuestión de unos años que las mismas políticas intenten implantarse aquí.

Receiving an autism diagnosis from a professional is sadly still a privilege. Self-diagnosis isn’t perfect, but is valid for all the reasons contained in the slide below. One cannot deem self-diagnosis wholly unacceptable without ignoring all of the barriers to medical diagnosis.

I'm trying to shed some light on something that happens to me, to see if I can reach people with alexithymia:
- Do you ever have totally opaque emotions?
- Do they overwhelm you?
- Do they leave you feeling bad?
- Do theoretically antagonistic emotions feel exactly the same?
- How do you manage it so it doesn't bring you down?

RT, thanks

Quedan solo 9 días más para apoyar la iniciativa europea de implantar una renta básica universal y me parece tristisimo que se esté movilizando tan poco.

Que es una iniciativa europea, gente, no un simple change.org 🙏

how many trans people does it take to change a lightbulb 

one but they have to convince two people with a phd that they’re really sure they don’t wanna live in the dark first
