Little self promotion here.

If you want to know when I get published with my YA sci-fi about superheroes or my adult fantasy about Wheel of Time trope subversion, here is my newsletter.

I won't be updating this until I'm published, so no worries about spam!

I want to see more non-binary defense coming from cis friends. Please speak the fuck out, please defend us, please speak up when being made fun of in the media is the norm. I’m tired of being othered and afraid to show my identity. I want us to share a word. Cis man, cis woman, if you are a true ally, please speak up

US Politics, thought on justice/impeachment 

A while back someone posted a thread about how it super isn't cool that non-Jewish creatives constantly use The Golem, protector of the Jewish people, as a fantasy monster or robot stand-in. Since then I've been thinking about other ancient robot stories which people could use as inspiration for their stories, games, etc.

In this thread I'm going to give a brief overview of a handful of ancient robots. These stories all have different interpretations and retellings, but these are my takes.

I’m writing an article on the subject, but as a blind guy, I’m getting really really tired of people speaking for me. If you do accessibility or UX and really want to know what I want, or “need”, or what works best for me, then ask me.

CW your emoji posts like these please! They’re hell for screen readers. Not only do they take age to finish reading out, they also are completely meaningless if not visualized.

Impeachment hearings, why to watch, despite the yelling. 

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

My shop-drop picture this (half-)week is not very well coordinated. (I mean, they never really are, but usually I don't have so many of one color that it looks like it *should* be but doesn't quite make it.)

I do have a mailing list that announces the shop drops, if you're following me here for them and are tired of my work-in-progress jibba-jabba: shop.silverseams.com/

This whole thing with Bill Gates and how he shouldn't be taxed because he does 'good' things with his money....

Then if it's so important, set up a Go Fund Me.

Solidarity in your queer siblings is the most important thing. Sometimes your cis friends can feel like the best thing you’ve ever had. But when it comes to them treating other queer people like shit, to do nothing, and enable them, is enabling queerphobia. Queerphobes can like you if you’re a respectable queer. If you’re not weird enough to cross the line. But when you betray your siblings for the comfort of cisheteronormativity, you’re putting yourself in danger, because the minute you cross that respectability line, you’re done for. It’s toxic. Those people are toxic. They’re not not toxic just because you like them and because they’re nice to you.

Before Adventure Time: Distant Lands was officially announced, folx working on it weren’t supposed to hang any Adventure Time artwork around the studio. This concept art is based on a fake show called "Rumble Jaw", faux concept art of it was hung around the studio instead!

This piece was commissioned by Adam Muto ^_^
