Pinned toot

I already added this note to my profile info
but I will also pin this as well

If I liked a post of another account that's negative, sad, upset, etc

I am doing that to show supportive feelings/solidarity or like "here's a hug if you want it"

Medical question, description, I'm sorry I don't know the names of things 

So
The short version is I can't just ask my father because we aren't speaking

But he had some condition as a child that caused his leg bones to be...painful or unusable in some way

Like he had to wear those leg brace things that are like leather and a bendy metal joints

And then he has to have surgery which removed part of his leg bones and this cured him somehow??

I ask because I have leg issues I want to understand

For a Markup feature, Leon Yin and Aaron Sankin compiled a list of "social and racial justice terms" with help from Color of Change, Media Justice, Mijente and Muslim Advocates, then checked if YouTube would let them target those terms for ads.

covid vaccine, societal PTSD 

There were dark moments, where I genuinely believed that I'd never receive the C19 vaccine.

They came from internalized experiences of being made to feel worthless, and not worth saving, by this society.

That I've actually received the vaccine doesn't exonerate America for doing this to people.

It simply says there might be enough compassionate, determined people to change the track this society has gone down.

More importantly, if anyone else feels this way, or felt that way before they got the shot / their unemployment / their disability stipend / friends who care for them / a healthy chosen family -- you DEFINITELY deserve it. Fuck that internalized voice, it's a liar and a mirror of something that isn't you.

UC San Diego scientist and curator Phil Hastings discovered a new species of Pacific blenny while his employer, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was closed last year. He decided to name it Coralliozetus clausus; its common name is the pandemic blenny. He published the fish's discovery in February of this year. scripps.ucsd.edu/news/pandemic

Here is a yokozuna slickhead, discovered in 2016 but only just announced in January 2021 after verifying that nobody had seen one before, and for good reason: most slickheads average 14 inches (~35.5 cm) in length, but the yokozuna - named for the highest rank in sumo wrestling - averages 55 inches (~140cm) and about 55 pounds (~25kg). These are deep-sea predators that supplement their diet by scavenging; they were found by biologist Fujiwara Yoshihiro, a specialist in whalefall communities.

My new novel, NON-PLAYER CHARACTER, is live on Kickstarter!

menstruation + covid vax 

Oh hey there's an actual study gathering data on the menstrual side effects of covid vaccines: redcap.healthinstitute.illinoi

I just did the thing and they did a basically fine job of making the language in the survey gender-neutral so that's cool ✔️

If you are a menstruator (past or present) and have had at least one vaccine dose, consider participating!

My special #PeerTube instance geared towards creators is up and running. I'm in the process of migrating over myself, before I shut down my personal instance.

Still looking for creators interested in putting videos on it. Feel free to DM me! In the meantime, check it out:
