the debate around the word "bisexual" (1/2)
I, in Internet years, am an elder who has seen the evolution of human thought (Or at least middle-aged) and I feel this way the most when I see people debating on the label for people who like more than one gender. (I'm attributing this conversation to the internet because I'm a forever-closeted person who can't seek out these talks IRL.)
So far I know of:
(See pics for flags)
And the differences between them seem really muddy to me. What I've got is that some people are rejecting the bi label because they feel it reinforces the gender binary, polysexuals are attracted to more than one gender but not necessarily all... and that's all I got. Pansexuality and omnisexuality tend to get defined as the same thing, though some protest. (cont.)

The sub-Saharan Sun Elf write up continues (without a hashtag). I need some input. Despite it being very against sub-saharan African ideals, I want to make this genderqueer-friendly because this is mine and fuck the alternative.
There's this concept that was introduced in the official books recently: the "Blessed of Corellon" (full description in the pic). Yet, the notion of them having to *look* androgynous to be blessed feels weird. (Yet, they're elves so aren't they already pretty androgynous?) Any suggestions to make it more open?
It's been some time since I determined to grow some sprouted garlic and onions. I've put all of them in shallow cups of water to get some rootage in hopes that the ground would that out soon. Well, the good news is that the roots are here and plentiful. The bad news is that there's snow on the ground.
Either I have to freely acquire some soil and containers or hold out until the big thaw, whenever that is
I'm in a D&D campaign with my boyfriend as the DM. For the sake of sanity (trust me) I made an initiative tracker by using a magnetic whiteboard as a base. From there I took little cardstock cards and made space for the character's name as well as for Hit Points, Armor Class, and Passive Perception. Then I laminated them (with the lamination sleeve and an iron) and added magnetic tape to the back. Pretty easy fix!
I made a good number of blank cards and then, being the excessive person that I am, asked each player to customize their character's card. They all were finally done tonight and I'm pretty psyched about them. #diy #dnd
So I tore apart this storage bed that was falling apart and, being me, I thought "I should #upcycle this." I am left with 2 types of elements: 2 pieces of unveneered particleboard and 2 drawers with an espresso veneer on the front. I wanna use the particleboard for a desk I wanna make, but they're bowed in the middle. Any tips, especially on unwarping the particleboard? Check the photos for really shitty measurements because I can't find my measuring tape. #diy #upcycling #craft
