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.

Hey all! I’m in the process of writing a paper about LGBTQ+ people and their experiences in the Catholic Church. In order to get some more primary sources, I came up with a quick survey. If you identify as LGBTQIA+ and are a part of the Catholic Church, please consider helping me out!

All answers are anonymous and will only be seen by me.

Wokabulary that I wish people would stop using: folx (or “folxs” as I saw one time and have not known peace since that day)

“Folks” is already gender-neutral!!! “Folx” is a tiresome shibboleth that fills no niche that does not already have a perfectly good word to fill it!!!

PSA! Finding work for my friend who's a nutritionist/personal trainer. Please read because there's a lot to this :D Also please share! <3

My friend Jen has fibro, IC, depression, and anxiety. Two years ago she was hugely overweight and unfit, and walking ~100m was enough exertion that she'd feel sick afterwards. Today, she's lost 80kg in weight and is a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist. She does Krav, boxing, runs a community social walking group, teaches teens self-defense. (1/?)

I never feel the difference between hyper verbal and non-hyperverbal #autistic so much as when I try to talk with my father.

We can't do #ActuallyAutistic style 'be together without talking' socializing because he's an ocean away. All we have is words.

And he just doesn't word. Does anyone know how to have a long distance relationship without words? In person, I don't need words, but LDR takes away all the non-word things... and I miss my father.

NYC folks: if you'd like a free ticket to my day long workshop this Friday about, essentially, how to run a great Mastodon instance for your community, I have discount codes!

It's based on my runyourown.social guide but it uses the guide as a jumping off point and I get into some of the nitty gritty, including things like "how to stay on top of Mastodon releases and keep your community informed of new features if you don't know anything about programming"

I use Inspirobot and Artbreeder as digital fidget toys. They require attention, but not a lot, and are at the right level of stimulation for me to be a background distraction without taking over. Any other sites like these?
