request for book recs, boosts welcome 

Hi all!

One of my dear friends has a child who is beginning to question their gender identity (specifically, they have questions about what it means to be nonbinary, as they believe that they may be!).

Her kiddo is eleven and is looking for books about coming out as nonbinary and support/affirmation for those that are.

Book recs for mom and kid would be greatly appreciated. ty!

that's a nice new mastodon instance you have there. thanks for boosting a shitpost from noagenda so quickly so it's easier to decide to deny your follow request and block your domain.

It's so depressing to know that thorium nuclear reactors exist, and are so much safer than other fission reactors, but will never be pursued because they're more "expensive". They're not more expensive, you just can't offset your costs by producing nuclear weapons from the byproducts (without additional effort). I'm glad solar is finally kicking coal's ass, but I am worried it might be too late.

Too many FOSS nerd's following me without even looking at my profile 😠

like this isnt even that hard to make happen. we stopped having toilet paper because people refused to work during covid. in a normal economy we might have a reserve stock of materials for say, 3 or 6 months, in america we had ONE WEEK

if enough people refused to work the entire american supply chain would collapse overnight

like i keep seeing articles about how the US basically never keeps reserve supply in any store.

and that this is because they take a "zero risk tolerance" approach to supply lines, that is, if a supply line breaks down at any point, there is no reserve supply at the destination in case of emergency

the quiet part here is that one of the biggest "risks" is the needed labor not occurring

Show thread

americans have been so thoroughly brainwashed that a storekeep i was talking to a few days ago thought it was a catastrophe that entitled delivery drivers quit to demand higher wages and not, say, a fucking abomination that we run supply lines on such a thin margin because we assume everyone is trapped in their job

To much onion in the hashbrowns, she's not gonna lie that 😁

i woke up just a bit ago and nearly the first thing i saw after picking up my phone is this helpful guide to more fully understand the demonym "Latino."

mildly concerned that due to lax brain security, that it has slipped right into my head and I am now actively internalizing its concepts.

[Me]: "is he gonna be OK?"

[The Vet]: *still silently staring at the tamagotchi I handed to him*

Every morning, I carefully slide horizontal out of bed and replace my spot on the pillow with a stuffed animal so that my partner is(/n't) startled when she wakes up
