reasons to do it: my ex would hate it
reasons to not do it: my ex would hate it
a reason that doesn’t have to do with my ex: I could start taking ownership and pride in how I look instead of letting other people dictate how my appearance makes me feel.
A jokey illustration from Mark Witton’s informative and fun post on the new African titanosaur fossil find. I love his suggestion at the end:
I’ve developed a real hankering for a good sauropod book. You know, a readable, fully referenced overview of their history of study, anatomy, palaeoecology, biomechanics, evolutionary history and diversity (so, nothing major then). I’m quite serious here: they’re an awesome, popular group of animals, fully deserved of their own semi-technical overview, ideally with lots of images to showcase their anatomy and habits. I’m sure this idea has sufficient legs to interest a major publisher. I lack the expertise to write it, so this is my attempt to plant a seed in the minds of those who can. For what’s it’s worth, I’d gladly help illustrate it: sauropods are fantastic fun to draw, and it’d be terrific to bring the diversity of this group to life in artwork.
The Trans Youth Sexual Health booklet was produced by trans people aged 16-24 at Gendered Intelligence, in partnership with Terrence Higgins Trust. The project allowed young trans people to get together as a group and learn about sexual health, and also to discuss how to make sexual health information more relevant to trans people. As a result, a group of young people produced this information booklet, which is aimed at trans youth and their partners.
