sffbookclub meta crowdfund
The Mastodon #sffbookclub crowd-fund is again operational on @Liberapay at https://liberapay.com/Mastodon_SFFBookClub/receiving/
When Liberapay had problems last month, I withdrew the balance to date. I have just set what I withdrew (less the processing fee) to go back into the fund over the next month, at which time I will resume my own regular contribution.
As always, PM me if you need help affording the club selection or want more information about contributing.

* Accessing scientific articles from paywalled journals
* Frank discussion of mental health, specifically including bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders
* D/s relationships and select other kinky stuff
* Polyam relationships, specifically with D/s
* To-do-list management strategies
I'm Naga. A statistical consultant by training and trade, but more here for general social interaction, especially geeky, sometimes sexy/kinky, and occasionally left-wing political. Oh, and new-dad stuff. Dragonlet is my toddler, Jalan is my wife.
I finished "Let's Talk About Love". That Ace Romance by Claire Kahn
Idk if I recommend it more for an Ace person, or for someone who needs more familiarity with Asexuality. It sort of fills in both bubbles? (I know there have been asexual characters in YA media before, but I don't think any have had a particularly prominent role in fiction, save maybe Jughead's various portrayals.)
Because now that I can actually shout about this, good look getting me to shut up:
Y'ALL I AM MAKING AN ANTHOLOGY ABOUT MONSTERS!!!
hey humans if you have binders you don't use anymore, you can send them here for rehoming: https://www.gendergear.ca/pages/binder-recycling
looks like they're out of stock of used binders so it'll be good to buff their inventory!
(i just unearthed a couple that are gently-worn and they just didn't suit me so i'm shipping 'em over)
porn (But not really), bees
Pornhub has launched Beesexual, a channel where they just show videos of bees foraging (with voiceover by sex workers), and every time someone watches one of the videos, PH donates to bee conservation: https://www.unilad.co.uk/news/pornhub-launches-bee-themed-channel-to-raise-money-for-bee-conservation/
I was interviewed by AsexualArtists.com and the interview went live yesterday.

I think the #nonbinary for auntie and uncle should be entie because I want to be old, huge, full of wisdom, and calm and dignified (i.e. slow as hell).
dawn spoilers (mostly just navel gazing about themes)
@jacek Definitely, there’s never been a power imbalance between two groups of humans as profound as the difference between humans and Oankali.
To me the exaggerated power differential is about getting you into the headspace of a subjugated people, to get the shame and anger and all the rest to the surface.
