long thread on severe ME
I have ME. I guess that was hard to miss when you follow me. But did you know there are 4 types of ME?
Mild, Moderate, Severe, Very severe.
Definitions change a bit from website to website, but I'd say, Mild: can still go to work/school without spoons to do anything else
Moderate: Jobless, but can still leave the house (almost) every day for visits, shopping, etc
Very Severe: Bedbound
if you went to an event, knowing you were likely to be filmed and feeling okay about that, but:
shortly afterwards saw in a video that a camera crew had used a zoom lens to film closeups of your notes without asking or telling you. And that had then got through editing too. How would you feel about that?
(pls boost. context: this just happened to me. nothing private in notes, but there could have been)
Got a kid into fart jokes? Let me recommend the bean/fart scene from blazing saddles. Kiddo basically fell off the couch laughing. We've had to watch in 4x in a row. Thanks @jonbro for being such a great parent.
"be gay; do crime" isn't a pride flag or a cute meme.
"Many blame queers for the decline of this society -- we take pride in this. Some believe that we intend to shred-to-bits this civilization and its moral fabric -- they couldn't be more accurate. We're often seen as depraved, decadent and revolting -- but oh, they ain't seen nothing yet."
I've posted a progress report for day 3 of the survey on the blog here: https://gendercensus.tumblr.com/post/689885660262350848/the-2022-gender-census-is-now-open
(Also, well over 22,000 responses at the moment! Halfway to last year's record on day 3?? Take part if you haven't already: http://survey.gendercensus.com)
