UK, trans, passports, - 

Here we go again! The UK gov't intends to out trans people applying for a new passport.

"In a response to an initiative to prevent registered sex offenders hiding their new identities, the Home Office stated '.. we intend to also amend our existing Home Office guidance so that only enrolled deed polls (through the Royal Courts of Justice) are accepted as a proof of name change.'"

"Enrolling a deed poll is an arcane process that results in the address, previous name and new name of the applicant being published in The Gazette (the official public record) This means that if a transgender person wishes to change their name on their passport or driving licence or other government issued documentation, they will need to put their gender status and address in the public record.

Transgender people will thus have a Hobson’s choice: they either keep their driving licence and passport in their old name and out themselves whenever they use it or they out themselves permanently."

"At the moment this shocking proposal is at an early stage and we have seen that if a sufficiently loud fuss is made the government will listen. Write to your MP! Write newspaper articles! Post about this on social media! Don’t let the government remove people’s rights by stealth."

As the official spokesperson for grumpy, middle aged, binary IDed trans men, I have gathered you here to state:

Enbies are good. Experimenting with gender is good. You are as valid as you want to be. Nobody owns any of the genders and you can play with them however makes you feel happy, or curious or for no reason at all. Any reason is good as is no reason at all. Free genders for everyone!

2021 is the year of gender liberation for all.

Thank you.

#playvicious social, the black led instance in the fediverse has been switched off a couple of days ago, and we wrote a statement as the moderation team of weirder earth about it.

it is a huge loss to the fedi and we realized too late that more solidarity would have been needed. we say goodbye and thank you for everything you did.

And my reference sheet is done! It's a lot of work but I think the workflow is good enough so that I can maybe take one ref commission in the future. It would be quite a bit more expensive though, seeing the amount of research, experimenting and time it takes. We'll see!

In any case, I really like what I did here, I finally have a ref for my fursona 🧡​

(2) how fun and surprisingly tense games can get

(3) the announcer saying "spades" in an overly excited way

I realized during the holidays that I don't have a formal reference sheet, so I'm making one myself. Here's a preview! If I manage to find a decent workflow, I might be able to take ref sheet commissions in the future!!

Im looking for a room to rent in Lisbon and really need to move to Lisbon in next couple of months.

Im a lesbian trans woman of color and I have a lot of experience with communal living. Open to any of the 18 areas of metro Lisbon. Pls share

Suddenly remembered this diagram from the nin.wiki's page for Survivalism detailing the layout of the security camera screen wall in the music video, in which two of the screens read "Bewbz!" and "Gay Sex!".

Good stuff.
