me reading a poem about sexual violence, audio recording 

I recorded the poem from this thread and would be grateful to be heard. I'm not so happy with my accent and overly self conscious with my voice but here you are, this is me:

Hello new followers! You probably found me because of one of my posts. Please be aware that I usually share less about that stuff (there's only one congress a year) and a lot about my mental health journey with PTSD and depression, being autistic and having to deal with oppression. Don't worry, I use content warnings.
I try my best to be an intersectional feminist and I'm antifa.

If I didn't piss you off yet we'll probably get along well.

I'm AzureKingfisher, a woman with white privilege living close to a big city in Switzerland, with all the benefits of its infrastructure, while deeply missing being in nature.

I'm a parent (2016).

Some of my interests are , , and . Sometimes I try to make .

I'm , traumatised, suffer from depression and will write about mental health.

I deeply care to the point that it hurts, so I'm grateful for CWs to being able to prepare.

TIL that anarchists read so much theory that cops find it difficult to infiltrate our circles

love to add a tinge of surreality to my morning walk, saw this poster on a telephone pole

i guess ill keep an eye out?

Now I'm thinking about that time someone's laptop battery caught on fire and we were live-tooting safety advice to them.

I'm blanking on who that was but boy was that an eventful hour.

Some awesome things about my native language, Tagalog, on #NonBinaryDay:
- No gendered pronouns ("siya" is for everyone)
- No distinction between gender for a lot of relationships ("kapatid" means sibling)
- No grammatically gendered nouns or articles ("ang")
- The common form of many nouns is neutral. ("doktor" isn't always a male doctor, it's just anyone who's a doctor)
- It's entirely possible (even common) to tell a story and not mention anyone's gender.

Gender is a construct. 🇵🇭

Research Explainer: The chemistry across a “forest” of giant clams

I have a new paper out. Coral reefs, giant clams and isotopes, oh my! Allow me to clamsplain about it here!

Climbed up onto the low part of the mountain to await the comet. Phone camera can't quite convey the dusk but it was rich and lovely and we watched the stars come up across the sky.



Made it through the lock, into enkhuizen. The toilet signs in this marina are interesting. I guess the idea is of you are neither, you can go to both.

mental health -, abandoning issues 

Due to recent and still ongoing events I fear that everybody will leave me and have no idea if what is being said to me is what people really mean.

Ripe bananas glow blue in ultraviolet light.

Like many fruit, unripe bananas are green because they're still full of chlorophyll. In bananas, that chlorophyll breaks down into a UV reactive pigment.

Some birds and insects are tetrachromats, and can see UV light. To them, bananas which are ripe and ready to eat are super obvious, and easy to see from the air.

Hey friends.... I'm starting to learn more about ADHD in adults (and that TBH I'm like 99% sure I have it undiagnosed for my entire life).

Does the magical braintrust that is mastodon have any recommended viewing or required reading for those of us starting to discover new parts of our neurodivergence? Written or created by queers/poc/women preferred.

Thank you thank you thank you. <3
