This was super helpful, I was having trouble figuring out the difference. I see it now! Thanks for explaining!
I wish more people thought like that about “phases”. Thank you for telling people what’s what when it comes up!
Seconding the TransTape! If your son tries it, try to help him not discouraged if the first few tries make the dysphoria worse. The first time I tried it I felt so icky because I didn’t get it on right that I didn’t even try again for several months but when I tried again it became my favorite method to bind. It takes practice to figure out what works best for your body, and someone’s taping method might not work as well for another person’s. Also, some people recommend bandaides to cover the nipped but that caused me a lot of pain when taking them off. Gauze works amazing and you can cut the packets up so they’re 2 ply and it lasts a long time that way too. Good luck!
I saw it right away even before reading the title! That’s so cool!
I think the cherries are needed because otherwise it starts to look like cotton candy (white cones with light pink and blues would make a great cotton candy pattern by the way! Just change the colors and take out the cherries!)
I think a lot of colors would work - Pink, light brown, vanilla yellow/white (if you had a different background color), and mint green are the most iconic ice cream flavor colors I can think off of the top of my head. Neapolitan came to mind too but that sounds tricky haha. Certain variegated colors might look good for sherbet ice cream, too (green/oranges or purple/blues).
Came here to say State of Minnesota jobs, too. The department I’m in actually downsized their physical office space since so many people chose to keep WFH or to just come in a couple days a week.
It’s the “men are inherently better at chess” part of your comment I took issue with, and was hoping was a joke
I think (I hope) this was more of a joke about the chess association’s recent statement on excluding trans women from their competitions where they basically said men are inherently better at chess (because of their sex???) It’s dumb.
