What makes you more comfortable expressing your feelings and being open around women vs. men? Is it the absence of toxic masculinity? Is it a softer social currency situation?
Guys hanging around "buddies" seem to be limited to anger, ridicule or talking about sex. Do y'all have close friendships with other guys that you can be "yourself" around?
I know it's a very broad question. I understand it doesn't apply to every guy universally, I'm just going based on personal experience.
Okay. I will do it. I'll take this stipend!
If you're asking why this is such a big deal for me, I got a 4yo child at home and I share responsibility with my partner. We're trying to do this evenly, and I'll be gone for 3 weeks. It's "jwd" as we say in German, "janz weit draußen", meaning really remote. Which is a good thing for working, but a bad thing for family and staying in touch.
And of course I'm doubting myself. The usual. #artistLife #artistProblems
Amazonian fires, meat consumption, corporate media
The humankind is eating itself to death! In variation to Charlton Hestons Soylent Green quote: "Beef and pork is people!" https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/23/americas/brazil-beef-amazon-rainforest-fire-intl/index.html
Went to see some art yesterday! My favourite pieces were by Jeanne Mammen, who documented the lives of women in Weimar era Berlin, including lesbian subculture. Look at this (bad photo of a) wonderful illustration from 1928, called "She Represents!"
More about her here (cw Nazism, of course): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeanne_Mammen
Schick! Es gibt wohl ein brandneues Rechtsgutachten im Auftrag des BMFSFJ zur Auslegung von §45b PStG
Die Kurzfassung ist, dass das Verfahren auch trans Personen offen steht.
DIY dry shampoo test 👌
I've used rye flour twice now as a dry shampoo, and it works really well for me. Way better than store bought dry shampoo, way better than starch. It's not as fine as starch, which makes it easier to brush out. It has obviously no smell, which is a huge plus for me. Doesn't leave much of a residue in my (dark blonde) hair, and I need only about a teaspoon, maybe less.
And it keeps my hair fresh for a significantly LONGER time than store bought #dryshampoo! #haircare #diy
Move it 2020, western fitness yoga, illness
Just some asanas for some minutes. When I'm better, I'd like to do a longer session, but not today. #MoveIt2020
Today we were swapping pics of our favorite goddesses and talking about the best queer drama in mythology. What I’ve been coming back to again and again the last few years re: friendship is this: it helps to have things in common, especially deep characteristics like what you value in yourself and others, but friendships that last ultimately have to be built, for me anyway, on the basis of knowing that you’re both good people who are trying their best.
Internet friendships can be like friendships built through correspondence when it works right, especially if you actually meet at some point. I’m chatting with a woman who’s been an acquaintance for almost a decade. we met onstage at an event called “girl talk” that was about keeping a dialogue between cis and trans women. Started chatting last year and now we’re friends. This is what the internet was SUPPOSED to be like right?
Down with a sickness, move it 2020
So Oecan is sick. I might be, too, but I'm not sure yet. Also took Ibuprofen for the headaches, so double unsure.
But I want to keep up my good new habit and do just some minutes of yoga to open up my crampy muscles... #MoveIt2020
Move it 2020, western fitness yoga
Did a nice yin yoga practice today, although short. Perhaps there'll be time for a longer session at the weekend when child is at their grandma's. #MoveIt2020
