just posting to say: i will respect your needs and listen to your suggestions!
if i miss a content warning, mess up fedi etiquette, am blind to my own biases and thus show my whole buns, interact with you in a way you do not like, or anything else that is unpleasant — please tell me. i would prefer privately, but am not too picky about that. i will absolutely not do an anger at you.
I needed to catch up for the month (I was avoiding handling artwork while ill)... so here's four small watercolors I painted concurrently yesterday, in timelapse form! (15 minutes, silent, from 2.5 hrs of work).
Warning: if you're expecting anything in the mail from me from March, something in here is for you. Safeguard your surprise if you wish! They'll be mailed this week during our bank trip.
It's been a while since I've had the temperament to day anything wholesome about being trans, but it fills me with a lot of joy that more people than I ever imagined have explored their gender and found support networks to help them through it. I can only hope this keeps going until no lgbt people have to face abusive dysphoric upbringings before they can be in touch with themselves. I'm always worried this kind of talk comes off like platitudes but it feels good to say
When they call you an "essential worker" but force you to choose between risking your life and losing your housing, they mean they see your work as essential but your life as inessential.
relief funds for USian restaurant workers
From my wife, who found it elsewhere on the internet:
Do you know any restaurant workers that might want to take a look at this? If so, please share!
"Through this Fund, grants will be made to restaurant industry employees who have demonstrated being financially impacted by COVID-19, whether through a decrease in wages or loss of employment. These grants will be made on a first-come first-served basis, subject to availability of funds. 100% of the Fund’s proceeds will go to providing grants to restaurant workers. This Fund is operated by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, whose mission is to attract, empower and advance today’s and tomorrow’s restaurant and foodservice workers."
Hey! Ever wanted to get into opera, but never had the time... or money? One of the best operas for beginners is being streamed for free at metopera.org tonight:Il barbiere di Siviglia, aka The Barber of Seville.
It's got everything: great music (including a piece you know even if you don't know you know it), a hilarious plot, and some a-fuckin'-mazing singing.
i used to be mutuals with Shawn Allen when I was on Twitter, he is super cool and v smart and his new game Treachery in Beatdown City is out today so you should get it if u can!!
Friends, enemies, welcome all to #Dregday2020, the one day a year I unleash all the worst things in my collection upon the public.
HRT, another reason to get off spiro
Soooooo, apparently it’s possible that spironolactone makes Coronavirus worse.
All the more reason to use bical or estrogen monotherapy.
Hey I have a friend who’s fighting stage 3 Lyme disease and NEEDS donations in order to survive. This is life or death. Can y’all plz take a minute to donate if you can and boost this? Destin can’t leave their home due to seizures, low energy levels, having trouble walking, etc. all due to Lyme.
They need an oxygen concentrator which are ridiculously expensive, but they are having so much trouble breathing it’s become necessary. It’s really important that they get one.
I know that if we all boost this and donate a couple bucks then they can get the care they need. I donated $25 which was all I can afford really, so now I’m sharing. My friend really needs help so please boost! Especially because they are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus due to Lyme... it’s really important that they get the medical care they need.
