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.

US friends, in case anyone could use the reminder I'm hearing that open healthcare enrollment is closing on the 12th of Dec! Get it while the getting is good!

@lapis The Wicked and the Divine

Really anything Kieron Gillen writes seems to be right in the center of my interests, but WicDiv is still my favorite.

I like the way it explores music, mythology, faith, fandom, and religion as facets of the same thing and the ways those can be both uplifting and harmful depending on how they're utilized.

Also the art is fantastic and the characters are a lot of fun.

@chr @Dragon_Manual I figured one of you would know: Is anyone doing really classical D&D style dragon's these days? Like the Dragonlance stuff particularly Larry Elmore? That is my mental image of a dragon, and I don't see many people doing that style anymore.

Morning all.

It's going to be a long, cold, and hopefully not to wet morning.

Please send good wishes and links to queer fantasy webcomics for when I finally get home.

You know what would have been a thousand percent better? Give the Steve Trevor role to Lynda Carter. It’s still not too late, Hollywood. Give me THAT movie.

Green Open Access means I can publish the first submitted draft of my article, but not the peer-reviewed, corrected version (for a period of 2 years).

Now I understand why they asked that atrocious, eyebleeding typesetting standard (Latex not allowed, Times New friggin’ Roman in MS Word, double line spacing, 4cm margins all around). It’s so that I'm ashamed of publishing the first draft without retypesetting the whole thing…

Trying to remember the name of a TV show I saw the trailer for a while back. It was something about a woman takes a position of power that a man usually holds (like she's first female mayor or chief of police or something), drama comedy maybe? Any ideas?

🎶unless the person was famous before transition🎶
🎶there's literally no reason to ever include a deadname in a Wikipedia article🎶

In all sincerity, I hope the Prince Anders spin-off crashed and burns.

[Please RT, if you want!] Hey everyone! Some of you might know I do a video series about board games using Tabletop Simulator. Right now we are looking for new people to play with, ideally to eventually appear in videos, but also primarily just to play games. If you have any interest in playing board games, get in touch!

Hey, y'all, I'm trying to find a tool that either swaps texts/websites between male and female genders, or gender-neutralizes the language. I found one that gender-neutralizes pronouns, but it leaves other gendered referents in.
