Sex Ed for Bi Guys :heart_bi:

#Sex can be intimidating when it's with someone that has a different sexual equipment than yours, especially when you've never done that. Or maybe you're a guy with a clit / t-dick and a bonus hole, and you want to learn more about your sexual body. Here's part 1 of my Sex with #Women and #AFAB People miniseries!

Today in Labor History September 24, 2018: Syrian Civil War: The International Revolutionary People's Guerrilla Forces (IRPGF), in Syria, officially broke up. The IRPGF was an international collective of anarchist fighters that formed to defend the social revolution in Rojava in northern Syria, and to spread anarchism. The Queer Insurrection and Liberation Army (TQILA), was a queer anarchist subunit of the IRPGF who fought alongside the Kurdish People's Defense Units (YPG).

"Sword Dance" is a trilogy of very #queer books set in a fictional Greco-Roman fantasy world with a bit of mystery by A.J. Demas.

It all starts with Damiskos, a rather grizzled retired soldier visiting a seaside resort where he meets a eunuch named Varazda, who is more than he seems. The two form an unlikely relationship that takes them on quite an interesting series of adventures.

Cover illustrations done in ink on parchment of two men wielding swords. One is a slightly grizzled man in a greek tunic while the other is a long-haired femme.

Turning Red is about white colonialist erasure of queer identities.

The big red panda monster represents queerness. "In modern times, this is… inconvenient" (cough), so they lock it away deep in cultural ritual. They still retain access to it, but keep it hidden beneath the surface.

The ritual involves crossing a threshold from lush, vibrant nature to a dark, closed-looking space. Meilin refuses to go back in the closet.

Her mom chalks this up to society's bad influence. Miriam and Jin prefer seeing all of Meilin, seeing how happy she is when she embraces this part of herself.

And at the end, when she asks Sun Yee if she'll regret her choice… the answer is joyful and sublime.

"taco, how can i go about this?"

ask about how #AffirmativeAction is being accomplished by the teams that are running your conventions!

and don't settle for "we're a diverse team of queer people", most of the #furry #fandom is #queer. we need more #bipoc voices explicitly, or we're going to fall prey to the clutches of #whiteness and #christofacist sanitation. ask why there isn't more information talking about race in the fandom and talk about why it's important!

My wife & I are intending to continue streaming our multiplayer Subnautica playthrough (using the Nitrox mod) tonight from 19:30 (BST; UTC+1) on Twitch 🎮

i fear we, as "intersectional "allies"" are falling into this same exact trap of #whiteness with #fursonas in the #furry #fandom. more and more #white people who are affluent purchase fursuits, and we forget that the creation of this key piece of fandom history, the #fursona, is a product of #black #queer history.

we need to make sure this is corrected at an #institutional level. and by the #institutions, i mean the #conventions that we host and the 501c3s that we run to host them.

...which are mostly run by #white people.

if we, as an "#inclusive community", wish to make our conventions less... pale, we really need to start talking about the #black and #queer history of the #furry #fandom loudly. i am really proud of the documentation done on the fandom, but most of the participants i see in video documentaries, interviews, and other media are desparately #white.

#fursonas were literally invented by a black queer man, Ken Cougr. i fear we are forgetting the racial side of the roots of our creativity just like we have with other mediums, see: #rap and #hiphop.

we can do better.

#instagram says they have reason to believe I am under the age of 13 and my account is likely going to be deleted I am 36. These days I think I look older than that😅 ain’t no way anyone thinks I’m under 13. ithink this is just a way to suppress Black and Queer voices who are constantly speaking up against #whiteSupremacy
I’ve been called all sorts of #racist, #homophobic, and #transphobic and nothing ever seems to come of it. If I report them they’ll just decide it doesn’t go against community guidelines. If I clap back, I’ll get reported and thrown into ig jail. Something I’ve experienced many times. The only reason I’m sad is bc I have so many memories and experiences and instagram is the only place I can see them. Images of dead loved ones, or places I can no longer visit. I say all of this to say I think this may be the only space I turn to as a form of social media. I’m tired of fighting to exist in a space that was never actually welcoming to me anyway. #Queer #Gay #Black #GayMastodon #BlackMastodon

Whilst my face probably looks super sore, it's actually only feeling a bit warm right now.

I feel like I did a better job at exfoliating & cleaning my face today before applying the numbing cream, as the session hurt a lot less, even on sensitive areas.

If a partner wants you to choose between transitioning & staying with them, they don't truly love you.

If they did, they'd want you to be the real you & be happy, even if it potentially caused your relationship to end.

No truly loving partner would prioritise their needs over yours.

Please choose to be yourself: not what a partner wants you to be :TransHeart:

Oh, and one thing: Please never say (or vocally disagree when others say) that you don't know any #queer or #trans people.

You do.

But in the current climate (or maybe just around you), these queer people don't feel comfortable being themselves, so you may not see them. Being invisible is bad enough, but don't deny our existence.

I am queer. But my colleagues, my neighbours, parts of my family, even some (distant) friends don't know that I am queer. Some may have their suspicions, others will have no idea. But I'm not openly queer around them because I don't feel sufficiently safe.

According to new research, #queer hate is gaining ground in #Germany:

16% said that they were 'disgusted' when people of the same gender kiss in public (up from 9% two years ago).

17% see it as 'ridiculous' when a person starts living their real gender rather than the one they were assigned (almost tripled from 6% in the previous survey). (The actual wording was: 'It's ridiculous/silly when a man wants to be a woman or vice versa.')

Germany is still one of the better countries in the world to live in as a queer person. (I'm queer, I currently live in Germany, but I'm hardly ever openly queer in public.)

But 1 in 6 people now agree with statements that show nothing but ignorance and hate towards queer and specifically trans people. And right-wing extremism is on the rise, too.

We the queers badly need you, who may not be queer or trans but who disagree with these statements, to make your voices heard. Speak out against the hate. If only queers do it, we're not loud enough.

Any #LGBTQ, #Trans, #Nonbinary, or #Queer people in #SanDiego, CA that would be interested in practicing or learning martial arts?

I've been thinking I would like to get back into practicing martial arts and would love to maybe host an informal group so I have people to practice and learn with! I practiced Taekwondo and Judo for over a decade, once upon a time, and used to teach back in my early 20s....but I am really out of practice and out of shape, so I need folks I can feel comfortable exercising and learning with.

I have a space in my garage and could easily get some mats and a punching bag. I would host and teach for free, and would be happy to adapt what we do to anybody's accessibility or disability needs. Not a sure thing yet, but would there be anyone interested in these parts?

I just ran across a "bash the vegan" joke about how vegans have a hard time keeping that fact to themselves.

Do you know why they speak about their veganism so "often?" That's because they are a minority.

For the record, I'm not vegan. I'm vegetarian, but a lot of the crap applies to vegetarians too.

So why do we keep talking about our choices?

"Let's eat out!"
"Let's order in."
"Let's share leftovers."

In any social situation where someone suggests that some food be ingested in a kind of common setting, the vegan has to say something if they don't want to be served something they won't eat. I've never run into any vegan or vegetarian who did anything more than this. There are probably some who do: they are oddballs. You don't judge an entire group by a few oddballs.

Do you know who does **not** have to do that? The majority of omnivores.

Do you know who else has to do something similar to the vegans? The queers. I'm in that group too. We queers don't go around declaring to the world our identity just for the heck of it. We declare it because otherwise people would assume.

Who else? Polyamorous folks. I'm in the group too. Otherwise, the world would assume that we're monogamous. Even people who know our polyamorous nature sometimes spew mononormative advice at us. (e.g. my very own father.)

I'll stop here with the examples.

In my view, "bash the vegan/vegetarian" for seeing that this is what they are is of a piece with "bash the queer" or "bash the polyamorous person" for expressing their identity and suggesting that maybe the majority forgot that they exist.

All rooted in prejudice.

#vegan #vegetarian #queer #lgbtq #polyamory #prejudice

In my group of friends and chosen family, we have this thing where if someone needs to hear that they did good, they just tell what they did and ask for praise.

I find that it's actually really healing to have people say they're proud of you, and having the safety to just openly ask for that is amazing.

Welcome to #TransTuesday! It’s time to dive into one of the most ambitious topics I’ve tackled. This year I fell completely in love with a show on Apple TV, and at least part of that is due to THE UNINTENTIONAL (?) TRANS ALLEGORY OF #SILO.

Doch damit konfrontiert, dass sich das involvierte "Lesbische Aktionszentrum LAZ reloaded XX" in einem politischen Milieu bewegt, welches wiederum mit querfrontlerischen Umtrieben und sogar #Hitler-Verehrung auf sich aufmerksam gemacht hat, reagierten weder das Konrad-Adenauer-Haus noch der #Generalsekretär und Vize der Bundespartei, Carsten #Linnemann.

Any #BookRecommendations for me?

I haven't read a lot of #books in my life. It was always hard for me to get the motivation, but the last 4 years, because of my depression, it was often impossible.
But now I'm able to read again, and want to read up on some important issues.

Here are some of my favorite books I read so far:

📖 #Platonic by #MarisaGFranco.
It's a great book about the importance of #friendship and how to get and maintain one. It helped me learn a lot about myself and is a big part of how I started getting out of my depression.

📖 #Ace by #AngelaChen.
A book about #asexuality that everybody should read, not just ace people.

📖 "The time to act is now" (original title: #HandelnStattHoffen) by @carorackete
A moving book about #ClimateJustice and lots of related issues.

Right now I'm reading:

📖 "War das jetzt rassistisch? 22 Antirassismus-Tipps für den Alltag" written by the people behind the #BlackVoices referendum.
A book about #racism in Austria and Germany.

Some books I have at home, that are just waiting for me to read are:

📖 #ClimateBook by @gretathunberg
📖 #ThreeAgesOfWater by @petergleick
📖 "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate" by #NaomiKlein
📚 and many more (most on climate justice & racism, some on feminism & socialism).

I'd love to read other works like "Ace" but themed around other #queer identities.
Another issue that interest me is e.g. #ableism (especially, but not limited to psychological disability).
But feel free to also recommend great books on other issues.
I can only read German and English, so please keep that in mind.

Thanks. 🙂

I’m in no position to comment —considering the closest thing #Dallas has to an official #AIDS memorial is a bed of yellow daffodils dedicated to those who died of #HIV related illnesses and their healthcare workers— but (prepares to comment) …

Was there not a single HIV+ #Queer #PalmSprings #artist to whom they could have offered this job? One would think such a background would go far towards helping distill the #LGBT community’s feelings into #art.

In fairness, I have never claimed to be a typical trans woman 😅 :TransHeart:

A 2x2 grid meme, using the Coolyori (aka trans fem Drake, aka Sayori) meme template.

Top left - Coolyori looking away & putting up her hand as a "no" gesture to the text on the right.

Top right - text reads: "Typical trans fem voice goals".

Bottom left - Coolyori putting up her glasses & looking very confused to the text on the right, complete with 2 exclamation marks.

Bottom right - text reads: "Wanting to shift between sounding like the BG3 narrator & Astarion".

Boston’s only queer owned bookstore is being displaced… but not for long. Locally owned All She Wrote is moving to 75 Washington St in East Somerville. They are trying to raise $60k to help with the move. Learn more:

Thinking of moving instances cus I feel like ... unfortunately almost never produce any #search results. Any #neurodivergent, #queer, #sex-positive related/welcoming, #misskey instances that produce search results that include #mastodon posts?


question to speakers/users of portuguese of all parts of the world. repost welcome.

procuro textos com pronomes não binários, neo-pronomes e linguagem inclusiva (não limitada a género).

qualquer coisa, desde e-mails de trabalho, entradas de social midia até literatura e poesia.

(vivo fora da lusofonia, não tenho acesso a isto no dia a dia).

I just hate the constant reminders that I, a transgender nonbinary queer person, am living in a cisgender straight world.


At best, you'll be ALLOWED to be squeezed in somewhere that convenient for cis straight people.
That's what I've been doing all my life. Occupying space cis straight people ALLOW me to occupy. Where THEY decide.

I'm just so fucking tired of it.
Today I have no trans joy to share. Sigh.

Reminder cisgender folks: This is just transgender and nonbinary peoples' everyday life.

Trans lives matter. Til you become an inconvenience. Its annoying to remember your pronouns. It's a bother to remember your name.
Using gender neutral language to describe you is 'Incorrect English'.

Oh, but it's ok to use 'tolerating trans people' as a political football against 'the Conservatives'. (/s)
I can tolerate trans people longer than you, which makes me more moral! 🙄

Remember kids.
Transgender people are valid and acceptable.
Until they minorly inconvenience or embarrass you by existing.

Then you don't have to put up with that annoying trans bullshit. Cut that shit out. I thought that was a phase? Grow up.
Now's not the time or place for that nonsense.

This is what I've learned from many cisgender people. From strangers to family. Especially family. 👍🏿

Dank lieber Leute hab ich den Umzug ins CHAOS geschafft & stell mich kurz vor:

Ich bin Lili, trans femme um die 30, bin chronically online & nenne mich da Lilischote weil aeh klingt witziger?

Social Media nutze ich primär als Informationsquelle & um Aufklärung zu verbreiten. Vor allem Aufklärung & Repräsentation von #queer & #trans Themen, aber mittlerweile auch oft Gesellschaftspolitik.

Hier meine Links, wenn euch das interessiert:


I'm a disabled Indigenous queer person who exists on Jobseeker, which means almost 50% ($269/week) below the poverty line ($489/week).

After living in the same house for almost 10 years, I recently had to move as the new landlords decided to renovate so they could increase the rent.

Moving has cost me over $4000, and ended up putting me almost $2500 in debt.

I didn't get rent assistance for the first 6 weeks of living here because they lost my lease copy and they're refusing to backpay it. So I started the first 6 weeks here adding over $180 a fortnight to that debt as well.

I'm in a new house with a new landlord, and am barely able to make rent at the moment, let alone cover bills and food.

I hate asking, but please consider helping if you can - I'd be super grateful.
