tags are a thing! it's been too long since I used that kind of thing...

So I'm a queer person running away from the tumblr purge, because I do not enjoy censorship. What I do enjoy is open-source stuff, so here I am!

I'm 27, , , I plan on posting (hopefully) pretty pics of and maybe in-progress shots of my

I guess that's all?

so it just started hailing
and now I'm drenched cause I had to run out and bring my potted plants under the awning to try and protect them

I have many more photos from the same hike in the clouds, but since the weather was so particular that day they are all about the same colours and atmosphere, so I might switch up to other hikes and scenes, to add some variety?

Well that was a shitty ass dream!
Managed to dream about my ex, my dead cousin and the stray cat I couldn't adopt, in just one dream.
The break-up happened 2 and a half years ago, and my cousin has been dead over five years.
thanks brain...

Pic of the day, 2019, "dotted field"

technically this is an alpine tundra, but the english expression really sounds awkward to me
in french we call these mountains fields "alpages"

Pic of the day, 2019, "come and say hi"

With the mist you don't know where the cattle is, you only hear the bells they wear.
And then you get close enough to see them, and walk right in the middle of the herd, before the bells ringing echoes in the clouds behind you as you keep on walking.

beginning of the hike, in the forest and already in the clouds

Yesterday I went on a hike with a friend, and we went high enough that we spent most of the hike inside the clouds.
I was quiet surreal, and more than a bit magical.
It was also the first time I hiked a trail with over 1100 m elevation gain!
(is that the right way to say it? any hiking bilingual peep around? 1100m de dénivelé positif cumulé...)

Gender should be opt-in, not opt-out.

(and opting out is extremely difficult and almost impossible in our current society)

I don't think it's right to force people into a system like that from birth. If someone wants to identify as a certain gender later, they can do that. Until they tell you their gender, I think it's best to assume that a person is just a person and not put any gender labels on them based on how they look or act. Even the pressure to choose a label can be stressful, sometimes you're just you and no matter how many labels there are, none of them feel right.

I think there need to be more options for people who don't feel comfortable existing in a gender system.

It's ok to not fit into the whole concept of gender at all. Sometimes no genders fit, and even labels like agender don't feel right because you're completely outside of gender, not specifically lacking it.

It turns out, mapping the galaxy is a much more difficult job than anticipated, but using the light from Cepheid variable stars, which are stars that brighten and dim according to their size, we can pretty accurately tell distance. By using these stars, we can build a map of the distribution of stars in our galaxy...

So here's a 3D map of Cepheid variable stars, in our very own Milky Way galaxy, released in a survey done back in February. It reveals that the Milky Way isn't as flat as we thought, but rather a little bit warped or twisted. Although rare, it's far from unheard of to see a spiral galaxy with a wobble to it, and quite apparently our galaxy is among them.

Our galaxy is not flat, which means that a whole lot of art is out of date.

We don't know yet what caused the warping effect, could be a recent interaction or collision with another galaxy or even dark matter. At this point, it's still to early to tell.
