Biden’s gender equity strategy is most inclusive I’ve ever seen. Will protect “people of all genders: women and girls — including transgender women and girls — gender nonbinary and gender nonconforming people, as well as men and boys” whitehouse.gov/wp-content/upl…
Proud to be part of this moving and inspiring video in support of the employees at Netflix who are taking action today to nudge their corporate culture a bit closer to kind-hearted-ness. In solidarity, and with big love, Auntie Kate twitter.com/anderfinn/stat…
independent bookstores make something like a third of their sales between Thanksgiving & New Year's, & that's going to be really complicated this year given all the supply-chain fuckery, please consider picking out holiday presents from your local bookstores as soon as you can ❤️

The water in your body is just visiting. It was a thunderstorm a week ago. It will be the ocean soon enough. Most of your cells come and go like morning dew. We are more weather pattern than stone monument. Sunlight on mist. Summer lightning. Your choices outweigh your substance.
What a simply gorgeous piece of writing, filled with courage, compassion for oneself, and great respect for and understanding of the frailties of the human condition. Brava, Miss Lily. twitter.com/lilyburana/sta…
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BIOLOGICAL SEX there is an aggregate of 5 different biological data that we collect about infants that all present in various ranges and change over time. I'm sorry that science has improved since you went to high school 40 years ago.
“It’s so much larger than me and life; it hasn’t got anything to do with the little green and blue orb. It has to do with the enormity and the quickness and the suddenness of life and death. Oh my god, it’s unbelievable.” @WilliamShatner #LLAPcnbc.com/2021/10/13/wil…
Biological sex obviously exists -- people keep referring to it. Easier to argue biology itself is socially constructed, which is really just an overspecification of the famous feminist axiom that the personal is political
Turns out that the reason it feels so good to learn something new is that we grow new brain cells when we do that. So thanks for all the brain tickles comin’ from your feed, @NOLABOOKFAIR
Does this make sense:
What we call gender is only one of an infinite number of mind-based interpretations of any rough binary known as biological sex

And that’s why on days like #NationalComingOutDay I make an effort to remind the world that we do not all easily fall into a binary of sex, gender, or attraction.
And that’s OK. 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️
