A blog on science, technology and politics, as well as possibly a few other things.

Hormones! :D

So, as ya might know, we're trans, and we've been on E2 (estradiol), since the 30tha August now, and we started on cypro (CPA, an antiandrogen) on Thursday this week. Which's pretty exciting, so I wanteda make a post on it ^^

Fragments 2

[Context: Wikipedia says schizophrenia lowers life expectancy by about 20 years]
fc17: So schizophrenics die more often…
T.: What? There's far less schizophrenics than other people.
fc17: But if we had the same amount of schizophrenics and others in the population…
T.: If half the population were schizophrenic, we'd've a problem.

Goodbye Techlore

Yesterday, I stepped back from my role as a moderator in Techlore's Matrix rooms and left all of them. This, apparently…

Fragments 1

L: Why did I call you F. instead of FC17? That's normally more Tanith's thing.
fc17: She talks about me a lot.
T.: I could talk a lot bout myself. If ya wanna.

Fragments 0

Ah, bathroom thoughts ^^ So, we came up with this: Basically, others like putting, yk, comics, or short stories or whatever on their sites, but those require like, writing some fiction usually, and that's not ideal for us cause imagining a character in our head… well, we're four of those basically ;D But we do produce a lotta thoughts over a day, usually (like most people I hope?) and we thought it'd be a nice idea'a write somea these down, cause, Idk, they're sometimes fun or some philosophical observations or both, or whatever. I was the firsta write some down (and, cause they're not always super clear, and we don't language everything we think all the time, inserting some stuffa make them more clear, not that they'll be super clear anyway), and we gave it the super creative title Fragments (cause, yk, stuff's sorta outta context mosta the time and what not). Might continue with further parts at some point, regardless, here're the first ones (or 0th ones ^^), chronologically ordered (as if that mattered):

Invidious (Piped didn't work in between)

So, we set up Invidious now. Piped was too complex n stuff, and it needs JS, and it didn't work in between, same goes for ViewTube, so that's what we went with. More details below.

Service additions

Hey there, thought I'd write this one. Only one here who hasn't written anything yet, after all. It seems to get hard to get more creative titles with this sort of post, so that one's what we went with. Anyway.

Career choices

I have thought about this for a while now, and after collecting most of my considerations in a private chat with some other people, I realized I could as well make a blog post of this…

Stop Ecocide

Normally, neither I nor Laura deal with political issues, given Tanith and FantasyCookie17 are occupied with these enough for one body. However, this time, the latter was, in her own words, "too lazy to write this", and the former felt like I would deliver a better performance at explaining the content of this. This, along with the fact that I have not written much on this blog at all, lead to me writing this post today.

Systemic gatekeeping

So, this's basically a continuation of my last post, so maybe read that one first ‒ or don't, this one's less sensitive or whatever.
