Bottom surgery for dysphoric trans folk is ‘cosmetic’ but nonconsensual genital alteration on intersex infants is ‘corrective’ and necessary?!!!

Beyond the Shelter Doors, a short documentary on White Buffalo Calf Woman Society, is available for viewing on YouTube; I encourage all to learn more about the beautiful, courageous woman Tillie Black Bear was and the impacts she has made by watching the video.

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.

Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate

I’m honestly conflicted about this.

On one hand, these people do seem to mean well, and I’m sure this means a LOT to some people in the community.

On the other hand, it feels a lot like straight people trying to be the center of attention AT PRIDE. Pride isn’t about straight people, even if they are reformed vitriolic homophobes and ~straight allies~ there to apologize for other straight people. 

It’d be a hell of a lot more useful if instead of coming into safe LGBTQIAP+ spaces to apologize (and get attention and praise for how ~lovely~ they are) they went into places that are still incredibly homophobic (like homophobic churches or to events with homophobic politicians) and petitioned to make THOSE spaces more LGBTQIAP+ friendly.

there’s like a 99% chance i have lyme and it’s been like 3 years since i was infected or bitten or whatever
and some days i’m like, yeah my low energy and “always seeming on the verge of catching a cold” is because i’m a stock clerk and there’s like a million customers every day. yeah, it’s just because of my job’s physical requirements, sure!
but then i’m like yeah maybe it also hinges on how i take care of my body…?
so maybe i need to not drink alcohol and drink less coffee and definitely no energy drinks and definitely no candy or other sweets
and i don’t want to be ~that prude friend~ but i do feel like shit when i do whatever my brain and mouth want and like not what my bones and muscles and liver wants. like i really like going out for beers and sampling super weird brews but i also like fermenting foods at home
maybe i just need to start homebrewing and then have potlucks or picnics with friends and start thinking of coping mechanisms when i go out with work friends. like asking for tonic water with lime and telling friends it’s like tanqueray and tonic or something (since i wouldn’t want to drink coke under the guise of it being rum and coke).
i don’t want to be the sober friend but i don’t want to feel like shit
