To make up for two well-known authors turning out to be little pieces of shit, let's put some science fiction and fantasy written by or featuring trans people!
I'll start with Dreadnought by April Daniels. Trans lesbian superheroes written by an honest-to-god leftist.
uspol covid important
starting today hospitals aren't allowed to report numbers to the CDC directly
they have to go through a private entity that's politically biased
don't trust the CDC numbers
the sheer complexity with which Uber is designed for you never to be able to get support if their service breaks and the sheer volume of fuckups it constantly has that conveniently cheat you and enrich them are too perfect to be unintentional and it’s a frankly mechanically beautiful and utterly fucking disgusting system that should frankly be punishable by prison time
Looking at it, this is the first time in years I've been able to read a book in one day. Usually it would take me up to several weeks.
But I was hungry for this thing.
Seriously this book is the horniest Dresden Files has gotten in a while. I haven't checked but I'm pretty sure Jim went through a divorce a few years back and it shows
The new Dresden Files book with everything I wanted it to be. Fantastic action, witty dialogue, and definitely written by a cisgender straight man.
the fact that we're getting the next book in just a couple of months is amazing. This is definitely felt like the first half of a book, but I know the second half is coming real soon.
Corona vaccine with good immune response
Pharma tech corporation #Moderna's #Covid19 vaccine, developed in partnership with the #NIH, shows a strong immune response in Phase 1 testing; Phase 3 to begin this month. 500k doses, perhaps a billion by 2021. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/14/health/moderna-coronavirus-vaccine-phase-1-study/index.html
in the same vein of "if you want to be a woman/man you can just be a woman/man",
if you've got a pitch lying around for a rad new gender you've been thinking about but you're worried it won't meet regulations, or if you just want out of the game entirely, you can just, do that!! name change or not, medical transition or not, any number of whatever pronouns you want or none at all, you can just do that!!!
you don't even need to get a permission slip signed by another non-binary person to do it, but i'd be happy to do it if it makes you feel better!
