If you’re creating a birth plan, consider writing out specific NON-consent to any form of surgical intervention in the event of the birth of an infant whose genitalia are considered by any care provider to be in any way “ambiguous.”
Recent legal cases concerning intersex people subjected to such surgeries without consent are cautiously promising; having a written refusal of consent could make the difference in at least some cases.
Bottom surgery for dysphoric trans folk is ‘cosmetic’ but nonconsensual genital alteration on intersex infants is ‘corrective’ and necessary?!!!
wait til everyone just entering the x-files fandom gets to that meta season that’s like “what if all this alien shit is just a distraction from the fucked up shit the government is ACTUALLY doing rn?” and mulder’s like fuck aliens, there’s some real shit happening. and you’re like, buzz kill mulder! what about the chem trails and the illuminati?!
been feeling a bit of a bug coming on so i brewed some mullein and thyme tea last night. it was barely 12oz so i drank it all this morning, and now my nose is a little runny. thanks expectorant herbs! good job
fun fact that i learned later that day:
when working with plants high in mucilage, when you want what’s in the mucilage to get into your tea (think comfrey but also mullein)
susan weed was on herb mentor radio and she said that if you have a mucilaginous herb in your tea mix, go ahead and make the tea and enjoy, but set aside the spent herbs and soak them in cold water. then bring that cold water to a boil for a second tea.
apparently mucilage like extracts or whatever in cold water, not hot. so by starting it in cold, you can get the most out of your medicine by doing that with those herbs. not all herbs! just the ones with mucilage. the tea will be thicker, more gel-like, but still drinkable liquid.
i did that and it was cool to see how that happened.
lol that person who doesn’t like the pb + y snack because “”my pre-med friend was wrong”“, that having too much protein is “”the most common problem”“
bruh i said i work a physical job bruh
bruh 30g protein eaten over the course of an hour as my dinner or after-work snack isn’t gonna kill me bruh
especially when the same institute recommending roughly .4g protein per pound of body weight are also recommending 30-60 minutes of exercise per day. i do like 10-18x that much “exercise” during an average shift. i think we’re talking about an exceptional need to eat more than the “”average”” person.
lol so i submitted my yogurt + peanut butter snack idea to no-more-ramen and like the day they publish it is the same day i learn you can pulse water + dish soap in blenders/food processors to clean them after use super effectively
like the whole reason i mixed yogurt & peanut butter in a bowl in the first place was because i didn’t want to clean the blender & probably didn’t have other ingredients for a good milkshake. and then i just kept eating yogurt & peanut butter
but now i know this thing and it’s like magic. i’ve just learned some magic. also i applied the knowledge of this magic tonight as a reward for washing lots of dishes. i had milk, yogurt, frozen bananas that i thawed, peanut butter, and dark cocoa powder.
curbing caffeine and quitting alcohol and processed sugar at once is yucky. all i crave is like coffee ice cream and wine.
