Gender Dysphoria Discussion
The best explanation of a Gender Dysphoria attack I've come up with.
Imagine this image is you in the mirror.
Since birth, you've been told you're a duck, and taught to see yourself as a duck. But now you've realised you're a rabbit, and every time you look in the mirror you have to work hard to see that rabbit everyday. You focus on the rabbits face, its features, but you know if you ever look at its ears.. oh fuck.. Im a duck arent I.. shit.. fuck Im a duck..
fire the football coach and use that money to hire 50 decently paid copy editors to help edit and organise all the research done on campus.
It wouldn't fix everything but it would greatly improve the quality of research and make it more accessible and understandable.
Engineers are terrible at communicating.
Fighting foxes without getting injured. Fas.ci.nating. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbF9WRxpZjI
Foxes, being intelligent creatures, would really rather not actually fight each other tooth and claw. It's undignified. Someone may get hurt. The /winner/ may get hurt. It's just a bad time for everyone.
They have a system of posturing (literally. Adopting one posture or another) so that a fox who thinks themself obviously more capable can broadcast this fact and the other can either dispute it or, more commonly, say "Oh, fine, I guess."
When this fails, they engage in…The Fox Trot.
Both foxes will stand up on their hind legs and rest their forepaws on each other shoulders while trying both to balance and shove the other one over while shouting at them.
Of course, to humans, it sounds like gekkering, but I suspect that beyond the language barrier it's basically a combination of wordplay, attempting to stun your opponent by sheer force of personality, ritualized, ornate boasting, and poetry slam.
