remember in artemis fowl when the bad guy was like "and who's going to stop me?" and artemis said "my magical fairy friends." and they bad guy laughed and said "well your fairy friends are more than welcome to try"

which was great because magical creatures need permission to enter a human dwelling and artemis was wearing a wire so all his faerie friends could hear

"We wish to speak with your seventh son."
"I only have six sons."
"Impossible! Are you not, yourself, a seventh son?"
"I am."
"But you have only six offspring?"
"No, Merle, my daughter-"
"Dad," Merle said, "they speak truth. I... I haven't told you, but... I am your seventh son."

Mastodon Meta, Hinweis auf die Existenz von CNs & Bildbeschreibung 

Super simple Mastodon trick: Using a hashtag to point to an interesting topic / conversation, while posting as "unlisted" --> no spamming that conversation with that pointer!

The gender binary is a cis problem, and you don't have to address it as a nonbinary person if you don't want to.

You only have to live your life as you wish.

This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.

It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."

The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.

A wholesome story for you <3 

Boosting TERFs in outrage is promoting TERFs. I know because that month the French lesbians furiously RTed me everywhere, outraged that I had no lesbian flag handwarmers, was the best month of handwarmer sales I've ever had, in JUNE, to FRANCE. Don't boost the TERFs, friends.
