what all cis people need to know:

"cis" is not an acronym. it should not be capitalized like "CIS". it is a Latin prefix meaning "on this side of", like cislunar space, cisalpine Gaul, or cis isomers in chemistry.

Later, when I was 16-17, my relative had another crisis. I won't go into details. I went to a nearby field, and I screamed with all my soul once. So that I could be heard from space.
I will always remember that moment. I imagined a few months later that the old me would speak to me, that he/I would tell me that a future awaited me.

I never came to meet my younger self, because it is not possible.
I had to reach the age of 26 to realise that I could have a future.
For other reasons and this. Please do not share this text.

Voilà. 2/2

Dear Diary,

I have finally found out why I cry every time I watch Interstellar, the film.
On first viewing, I thought it was empathy with the actor's emotion.
And tonight I wanted to know if I would cry again.
Because I cry less and less, once a year, sometimes less. That doesn't make a man, rather a man who is less human.

And I cried, it felt so good. Those drops running down my right cheek. The trembling that was associated with it.
And the understanding of my transference.

When I was 13, I saw a close relative crying and saying strong things about life. I escaped into a nearby field, where I used to build my house with straws. Only the boundaries on the ground. And a kind of small arch to symbolise the entrance. At that time there were still poppies everywhere, that I used to decorate this arch.

#COVID #SARSCoV2 evolution #SARSCoV3 

As the family of coronaviruses affecting humans grows, with ever more adapted "modules".
The returns to animals to evolve again and sometimes comes back to us.
Like the Hong Kong hamsters that timidly spread the delta variant in the midst of the omicron wave.

It didn't go far. But it didn't evolve with humans in mind. It could have been much worse because what is benign/fitter for an animal can potentiate its pathogenicity in humans.
This is what the approach is, monitoring these cases.

Because sometimes, in the future, this variant will recombine with a related coronavirus.

It'll be SARSCoV3, it shall be mild or it shall be worse than ever. Because we have allowed this virus to adapt to ourselves. It now has all the modules.

All it needs to do is scramble its genetic code to expel all the weakening mutations we ourselves have produced in it. And keep the worst of it.

I wish I could find more transmasc folks on fedi to be mutuals with.

I've been searching for days and only found a few ones.

Let me know if you are, especially if you're disabled, anarchist and use CWs! :BlobhajTransPrideHeart:

OK. [ thinks hard ] It's 10 years from now. The country is run by Christian fascists. My house is worth nothing because the first floor is underwater. My life savings were wiped out in the Crypto Crash of '27.

"There’s no online access to the Environment Agency’s national register of pollution sources: instead, as one lawyer acting for a rivers charity found out, you must visit the agency’s office in Lichfield, where it’s stored, exclusively, on an ancient desktop computer. The computer freezes when you try to open it. There’s no way of downloading the documents, and the printer attached to it doesn’t work."

Bullshit Work 

My workplace is so boring. It should be a source of inspiration to do anything.
But my turned guts won't let me.
I've to break the cycle.

There is a huge work to do with social media regulation.

Especially the way they give you back your data. And the interoperability.

More or less it's like you ask about the notebook of poetry you have written and they give you back data on a toilet paper roll.

And each place do not accept other places paper rolls. Even the originating social media app can't upload back your prose.

They make everything to be sure that you will have no other use of your data than... [I let you guess]

There should be a universal interoperability to upload your data everyplace you want. Like a smartphone charger's plug. Otherwise it is monopolistic. **And for the it means you can't save your own data.**

A credible and sustainable social media should be able to provide to you all your data organised in a universal file system. So that you can be nomad again. And upload everywhere you want. Even in the

"As Black feminists we are made constantly and painfully aware of how little effort white women have made to understand and combat their racism, which requires among other things that they have a more than superficial comprehension of race, color, and Black history and culture. Eliminating racism in the white women’s movement is by definition work for white women to do, but we will continue to speak to and demand accountability on this issue."

Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

Medical wishlist for a disabled guy, boost appreciated 

Hey everyone,

I just created a medical wishlist in case any of you can and want to help me. Don't feel obligated of course!

I'd need stuff for my sciatica, my reeducation, more comfortable crutches, an oximeter due to POTS, a bathroom scale...

Here's the link:

amazon.fr/hz/wishlist/ls/13BLS

Btw, we live without boiler, that's why I added the camping shower which is not a medical item, but still really important for our health!

Thank you. 🙏🏻
