A lot of instances block switter so won't be able to see what I just boosted.
Just in case, please consider donating some moneys to Wren so they can pay their housing and bills. From their original post:
**GoFundMe to secure housing and pay my debts**
I know I've been posting a lot of beg posts, but this is the biggest and hopefully will be the last.
My roommate is leaving our lease sometime next month and I need to find a new place as well as pay her back for rent and bills. She's been really kind about me being late on rent nearly every month, so that's a really important part of this fundraiser.
Please share on any platform you feel comfortable sharing. Thank you.
@tindall I mean, we have an entire chunk of brain called "the altruism center". Most folks have a different chunk of brain dedicated to empathy. Our bodies have a hormone that makes us feel good that's most commonly released during cuddling. All of these biological things are present in a world that has effectively forced us to be cruel and selfish for generations.
"Humans are fundamentally selfish" my ass.
that is to say, people being selfish in a system that rewards them for being selfish is not evidence that people are fundamentally selfish
Asking for Help, Cancer, Pls Boost!
Here we go again, I know, asking for help with hospital bills. Our fundraiser needs to hit $4000 to pay off the tumor surgery, but is only $806 away from that milestone thanks to you all boosting the signal and showing incredible generosity. Please keep it up, we need to get this one paid ASAP. Once we hit that 4K mark, things will calm down til August scans.
Thanks y'all so much.

Secretly he was Zelda as well
And all of Link's friends
Threw up their hands

@solarbear Yepyep. ^_^ The Good Law Project is *so* good at what they do. Would that things could move more quickly, but so it goes - they've also got a challenge that, IIRC, has been on hold recently with Bell v Tavistock rumbling on, hopefully toward a positive end, which seeks to hold NHS England to their 18 week obligation. The case is based on a minor, but the principle would, I'd hope, hold for everyone stuck waiting for interminable years, thanks to their gatekeeping policies - if they embraced informed consent, so much of that waiting would simply vanish, leaving the GICs to perform counseling for those who /wanted/ it, and as specialised endo resources.
The eighth annual international Gender Census 2021 is now open until 10th March!
It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.
PhilosophyTube will hereon be presented by Abigail Thorn. ^_^
