New Half-Sheet For Nov 29th #FareStrike
NOVEMBER 16 & 17, 2019
#GeekGirlCon’s largest event is a two-day convention that gives female geeks and their supporters the opportunity to build a community, share facts and fandom, and learn how they can help promote the role of women and other underrepresented groups in geek culture. We also bring people together through social media and events in the greater Seattle area. We have a lot of fun doing this, although we aren’t afraid to also tackle some serious topics related to gender equality.

Here is the medical data sheet I got from Four Thieves Vinegar about #misoprostol, aka RU-486, aka 'miso', aka the Morning-After Pill, aka the active pharmaceutical ingredient of the three large tablets in this series of posts, and which can chemically work alone to end a pregnancy.
The documentation here covers taking the medication, possible side effects, expected results, timeframe of action, and even includes contact info for support and counseling services.
I converted the PDF I was sent to three JPGs so that I could upload the info here. There's so much info, the captions are just the names and order of the photos.
Got in and out of library like a flash, and the dog has been dropped off. We will be maintaining this position until my parents return from their business. Because I have zero interest in anything more complex.
Princess Leia (rat terrier/chihuahua cross rescue) is lying on top of the bed covers, between my legs, head pillowed on my right knee, blanketed with a Gryffindor snuggie (blanket with sleeves), keeping an alert watch on the bedroom door. #mastodogs
#EVs are only for greenwashing capitalism. This needs to be fought!
i'm awake way too early due to falling into bed as soon as I got home from #GeekGirlCon last night. Various parts of me are in recovery from two days of standing. I don't feel bad, but my legs are exhausted.
Only hard responsibilities today are I must get to the library to pick up waiting items on hold, and a bit of mid-day dog-sitting. I showered to help with the aches and stiffness and got back into bed, and am going to drink water for a bit and see if maybe I can skunk in just a bit more sleep.
Just finished preparing my presentation for the European Parliament on Tuesday. I’m representing @Mastodon and small technology there on a panel to discuss the future of the Internet and I hope we can get the regulators to at least not fuck things up for our ethical alternatives.
My slides (not hugely meaningful without the narrative but in case you’re curious) are here:
Remind me again why I let you talk me into this, @Gargron? ;P
I just saw one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen at a con: a #Muslim woman just stepped to a quiet corner, removed her shoes, and knelt to do her prayers.
Had the intelligence to get a protein drink last night to help me get up and get going for day two of #GeekGirlCon. Yesterday was fantastic and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to really take some pics as I got super distracted during my break yesterday, trying to get lunch and see the exhibitors at the same time.

Confused cops don't understand why their Mastodon account was suspended. 😆
"much to our dismay, within a few hours, our account was suspended on stated grounds that are beyond any rational or logical reasoning"
"the way our account was suspended, has left us bewildered and makes us wonder about the intentions of the space"
The reason is, "we decided that it’s more important that our community feels safe and in security".
#Transgender Rite of Ancestor Elevation, Fifth Night. The "dragon egg" I crafted at the GeekGirlCon kick-off party was brought home and added because there's no doubt that egg is queer.
My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.
Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.
Feel free to boost. #trans
#GeekGirlCon the night before. I’m at TCC@WSCC, about to have Agent orientation. Piles of swag abound.
