Gender reveal nuke 

I keep debating just giving up this whole self hosted thing and going all in back to Apple. Then I remind myself that 80% of my frustration is my work accounts and that switching won't solve it (I can access work email and calendar ONLY in native Google interfaces). Ugh

Then, the other 20% is maps but. Eh.

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

I couldn't write enough posts to cover all the individual trips these last few weeks so here's my quick recap of , , and a few others.

@lyliawisteria I get that. You and I have been involved with some strange ones on that here (the nut who didn't like that I use masto different than he did). The ones that get me are the people who only know my professional/WP posts and have blocked me. That one I don't get at all. I guess we just can't please everyone.

Since starting travel on the 12th last month I've seen the skylines of Newark, NJ, New York, NY, Raleigh, NC, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA, Tampa, FL, St Petersberg, FL, Nashville, TN, St Louis, MO, Kansas City, MO, Omaha, NE, San Francisco, CA and Seattle, WA. In the time I was home two nights last week.

I love the opportunity and enjoyed every place I've been but I'm tired. Really looking forward to just being home over the next few weeks.

Here I share a means of understanding exactly why what is going on in Bolivia is a CIA backed coup.

I wouldn't dare not provide sources to provide perspective and support my claims.

Reminder: companies like Facebook and Google are a threat to the Internet and the Web. They want to keep you on their site (with Facebook it's pretty obvious, with Google it's through AMP) so they can keep serving you adverts, which earns them money.

Those companies don't care about open access to information, privacy or consumer choice. Those values aren't profitable. What do you think they'll do when they control the majority of Web traffic?

What could go wrong... :-(
