Rechte für trans Personen; Aufruf; bitte boosten
Am Mittwoch, 19. Mai, liegen im Bundestag Gesetzentwürfe zur Abstimmung an, die das völlig veraltete und größtenteils menschenrechtswidrige "Transsexuellengesetz" durch ein moderneres Selbstbestimmungsrecht ersetzen sollen.
Wenn ihr wollt und könnt, möchte ich euch bitten, euere Abgeordneten daran zu erinnern, warum es eine gute Idee ist, für diese Entwürfe zu stimmen.

EU Politics, Covid vaccines
There's a petition to try and make the EU commission do everything in its power to make vaccines a global public good.
Please sign and share! https://noprofitonpandemic.eu/
We need 1m signatures and 7 countries reaching the threshold.
Italy and Ireland are close to reaching that threshold. France and Spain do not miss too many signatures to reach it too.
Good morning, I am also crying about the boat. (This is a good story though, how did I never know anything about how we got the survivors we did from the Titanic?!) And I cried again at the note after the story: "it matters that they tried."
#SummerSchool will be in session soon!
May 12 we are going to be opening up the forms for y'all to submit your research proposals!
It is an interdisciplinary academic conference. We are so excited for the fediverse to come together and learn and share together.
So keep your eyes peeled and your minds a'thinking of your proposal.

Collecte Gilets Noirs / lien twitter
Ce weekend la CAAN organise une collecte alimentaire solidaire pour les #GiletsNoirs en cette période de ramadan.
Il s'agit d'une collecte mobile, toutes les infos sont sur le lien ci-dessous (formulaire d'inscription et denrées nécessaires) :
I Did The Presentation
I theoretically have a presentation in our group meeting in an hour and a half and I'm trying to finish preparing, but my prof just said he's teaching so we could move it maybe next week or maybe tomorrow, I didn't understand his final decision, and then he started talking to somebody else when I was opening my mouth to ask again, and so I didn't ask and now I have no clue when I'm presenting
I finished Foz Meadows' An Accident of Stars before sleeping yesterday and this book is hitting hard. It's fantasy, but *very real* fantasy.
So of course I'm already 15% into the second book now
Like as much as I like latex, the picture placement if you want to do anything more advanced than putting them side by side? aaaargg.
Current work status:
I got tired of recompiling over and over my pictures-heavy presentation which I write in org-mode and export in beamer (and my presentation is tomorrow), so now I just took the pdf, synchronized it to my office linux computer, connected by ssh, separated all the pages into individual pdf files, synchronized them back to the laptop I'm working on, and I just paste the pictures with inskape now.
In other news I repotted my tomato plants in a bigger pot, but now the little tomatoes are angry and they didn't grow since a week
The measurement is not super precise because I just hold some string around them, then measure the string against a ruler. But I'm proud that I can just fill in the table every time emacs asks me to, and then just plot it from there, I find it very satisfying
PhD thesis panic but I'm ok so far
Welp so I spent 4 hours writing 2/3 of a page of introduction for the paper we officially have until the end of the week to finish.
Admitting my thesis will be about 150 pages, since I guess I'll have about 2 months to write it (in any case less than 3 because my prof rebuked me when I put 3 months in my time plan), that's 15 hours per day including weekends
So I'm screwed
local estrogen giveaway
I have a sizeable stock of estrogen spray (Lenzetto) that I won’t need anymore due to switching to injections. would like to give them to transfeminine people in need.
these tend to work better than gel in my experience, and could be used for:
- bumping up your estradiol levels if you can’t have your dose increased
- increasing your E2:E1 ratio if you're on pills
- starting transition safely while on the wait for doctors (though at these doses most people will need some T blocker to see good effects, but it's not nothing)
due to their format and weight (glass spray bottles with liquid) I think it’s better not to send them by post, but if you know who I am and can reach my area I’ll gladly hand them over to you~
