Going to try Abilify which is a mood stabilizer and helps with depression. This will be my first mood stabilizer med for Bipolar 2. Anyone with experience with atypical anti-psychotics would be Great.

Imogen Heap helps invent gloves that will “change the way we make music”

Read More

I don’t think anyone could possibly imagine what having these would mean to me

theres too much you could do with this i wouldnt know what to do oh god

this is so fucking COOL

The Mi.Mu Glove is on Kickstarter, the campaign ends May 3.

@3:03:
It’s really exciting to see what people might do with hacking them. So, the software is gonna be open-source, and so is the hardware.

Considering how much data the gloves are able to process (right down to specific gestural input), and the fact that the gloves are wireless, this could go far beyond music. Mix these gloves with the Oculus Rift, and they might just become the solution for controller-free VR Input.

I really, really hope the campaign is funded.

homethelongwayaround asked: I have been hanging out lately with a guy I went to high school with, and we've gotten to the point where he always has his arm around me when we are watching movies. He was my first kiss and I was his, and since we are both new at this he flat out told me he wants to have sex. But the problem is that I'm asexual, and I don't know how to break it to him that I don't want that because he's a really sweet guy. Got any advice?

asexualadvice:

"Y’know, I don’t really want to have sex at all with anybody." And if he’s really a good friend, he’ll respect that. You don’t owe him anything but respect, and likewise, he owes you respect. That’s all. Be honest. 

You can, of course, segue into it, wait and see if he brings it up again, etc. You don’t have to come out to him if you don’t want to - allosexuals can say no to sex too! Anyone and everyone can say no to sex and that no needs to be respected. The reason for the no doesn’t matter.

this is Hourou Musuko, an anime/manga about a young trans girl and her friends, all figuring out their gender identity and sexual orientations

yo yo i just double-checked and it is a real thing and also available on crunchyroll for free!

It’s also on KissAnime for free which is a website I recommend 1000 times more since they provide HQ anime without having to pay anything, and they have a wider selection than Crunchyroll

I watched the first episode. I can’t vouch for the rest of it but the first episode made my heart swell a bit. A lot of it is about finding those people that you can make your guides and role models, and that’s not something I feel like we get to see a lot, we see the kids just left to forge through on their own in the big and scary.Wavedash why did you do this to me.

The anime seems to grab just a slice of the full manga’s story (obviously) but despite Horou Musuko being one of my favorite manga of all time, I never did finish the anime.  I didn’t think it was all that interesting an adaptation, and it’s so good as a comic.
The Horou Musuko manga is not only good, it’s really important.  It follow a transgender girl and a transgender boy and it follows them encountering and stuggling with:
dysphoria
trans* objectification
the intersection of gender identity and sexuality
passing
puberty
what adult life will be like as a trans* person
experimenting with (“trying on”) gender signifiers
evolving identities
binary questioning
being a partner to a trans* person
All while mired in Japanese society and expectations.
Luckily for EVERYONE, Fantagraphics press is translating and publishing the comic is BEAUTIFUL hardbound volumes.
But if you don’t have the money, I know you can easily find scanlations online, which are translated all the way to the end (Fantagraphics is about half way.)
That comic about trans* youth you were always looking for?
Here it is.

Aw fuck it, I’mma say it.

thebigblackwolfe:

White feminists need to understand that not all men are sexualized in a way that wholly benefits them. That is something exclusive to white men point blank period.

Because MOC are sexualized in ways that remove their agency and their humanity, and most times this is perpetrated by both white women and white men.

So when you’re talking about the sexualization of men giving men power, you need to be specific about which group of men you’re talking about.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

bicentaur:

important people to remember when talking about trans issues (that people forget about a lot or brush under the rug):

  • trans people who aren’t out
  • trans people who can’t afford transition (medical or otherwise) and want to transition 
  • trans people who can’t transition because of family (at least for a while)
  • non-passable trans people who want to pass as a certain gender
  • trans people who aren’t out online and feel uncomfortable outing themselves online
  • dmab nonbinary people
