I'm a nonbinary queer person from Germany. I do stuff with , , and since recently . Other interests of mine are feminism, queerness and inclusive communities.

I love reading about other people's lives and thoughts. But interacting with them consumes a lot of energy - often more than I have. So don't be surprised if I won't do it that much :)

Reminder: You cannot necessarily see a person's gender and you can definitely not see if they are straight or gay or bi or something else.

Kinder die derzeit sich mit ihren Demos strafbar verhalten... Weiter machen. Lebt die Demokratie und bringt eure Unzufriedenheit auf die Straße. Gehorsam waren wir schon, brachte nichts. Seit laut und seit viele.

Gardener surveyed 1400 women in IT in 2014: “What surprised me was that they felt, ‘I did all that work!’ They were angry. It wasn’t like they needed a helping hand or needed a little extra coaching. They were mad. They were not leaving because they couldn’t hack it. They were leaving because they were skilled professionals who had skills that were broadly in demand in the marketplace, and they had other options. So they’re like, ‘[expletive] it — I’ll go somewhere where I’m seen as valuable.’ ”

The biggest problem with e-voting is that it tries to replace the heart of our democratic system, that is due to its simple nature (pen, paper & people who count) super transparent and everyone understands, with a system that is build on computers and, in worst case proprietary, software and hardware that no one in the world fully understands.

Is it worth it to replace a system that can explained and understood by a 6 year old child with a system that neither you nor me understands?

Nachdem mich ein lieber Mensch darauf gebracht hat, einmal das anlässlich der dritten Option neu gefasste Personenstandsgesetz (PStG) genauer zu lesen, komme ich gerade aus dem Glücksen nicht heraus. Vielleicht war der Gesetzgeber da ungewollt progressiv, oder anwesende konservative Kräfte haben sich schlicht übertölpeln lassen; jedenfalls könnte die PStG-Änderung das TSG faktisch überflüssig gemacht haben, und das wäre halt einfach mal sehr, sehr gut.

The concept of being a "real man" or a "real woman" is weird as it implies that either there are a ton of people in some kind of gender limbo, and only a select few have earned the esteemed award of gender
