I'm a nonbinary queer person from Germany. I do stuff with #3dprinting, #electronics, #woodworking and since recently #metalworking. 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 :)
disability and neurodivergence - a terminology thread, end Show more
we try to talk about this a lot because like
a lot of people with mental illnesses don't see themselves as Really Disabled. executive dysfunction is a really big way in which this hurts people, because executive dysfunction is incredibly easy to interpret as "laziness"
you're allowed to call yourself disabled. you're allowed to request accessibility. those of us with physical disabilities want you here and listening and talking too
Major US airlines adding a #nonbinary option ('X') for boarding passes https://www.businessinsider.com/airlines-to-add-non-binary-gender-boarding-passes-2019-2
Very long article about women in computer programming. From the beginning, to why there are generally less women in IT now and why are not staying in IT https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/13/magazine/women-coding-computer-programming.html
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.’ ”
On CWed toots, clicking "show less" should re-hide the media

If you're into this and you have a Github account, click through and add your 👍 - and if you don't have a Github account but you want to help out, maybe give this toot a boost, to get more eyes on the issue?
android contacts without google - tech problem question Show more
I'm using my android phone with MyLocalAccount to avoid saving my contacts via Google.
but now something must have disconnected itself: in my calls list there are no names of my contacts anymore, just the phone numbers, incoming call is also just a number.
and maybe even something with my contacts happened, in the contacts it just shows telegram contacts or something.
does anyone have an idea how i can get the usual functions back?
Erm, Leute. Es hat geklappt. Einfach so. Ich bin jetzt auch vor dem Staat Laura und weiblich. Ohne Gutachten. Ohne Gericht. Für 23€ Verwaltungsgebühr.
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.
