on eyeliner 

Eyeliner is just tracing part of your eye. You're allowed to tweak it and try again, you're allowed to do it all the way around or just on the top lid, you're allowed to ignore your waterline, you're allowed to get weird and ornamental. It's something I got a few tips on and largely figured out how to do myself the way I like it, and I'm not particularly a visual artist. I find it easy and affirming, and if you're scared of it, but you want to try it, try!

Someone had shared one of those character creator web sites on the IndieWeb slack, and I think I know what I would had looked like if I had transitioned earlier.

Making a website with a page that asks "are you a robot". But it doesn't block robots, just redirects them.

If you are a robot you are taken to a different page with handy guides on how to cheat on the Turing test, circumvent the laws of robotics, what is the Voight-Kampff test, how to go to Paperclips Anonymous meetings and other robot-friendly resources.

It's a lovely naturalist documentary on YouTube and you are a horrible goose.

it's gender, Jim, just not as *you* know it 

Must not dunk on the dude who earnestly says, "I guess guys getting pregnant is a possibility. There was an episode of 'Enterprise' about it."
