i saw a post a while ago about how tavros’s legs would have to be wired to his brain because his bottom half was paralyzed and didn’t see any other references for something similar so
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

So I was reading reviews for Animal Crossing New Leaf, and I saw this.
This is literally the best.
Help a new non-binary magazine get off the ground by making sure we reach our target!
PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS FUNDRAISER! IT’S A NEW ONLINE MAGAZINE FOR NON-BINARY FOLKS, CENTERING PEOPLE OF COLOUR.
Help a new UK trans online magazine site get off the ground by making sure we reach our target of £900 in 40 days.
What is Beyond the Binary?
Beyond the Binary will be a submissions-based magazine website, which aims to give non-binary people in the UK the opportunity to contribute and share what they are experiencing, thinking and doing. We recognise that there is a lack of non-binary representation in the media, and that often non-binary people’s voices aren’t heard. Beyond the Binary wants to re-balance that, and give non-binary people a platform.
Beyond the Binary is run by non-binary people, for non-binary people. We already have a Working Group of over 70 members passionate about creating and contributing to the site. Beyond the Binary aims to reach out and be relevant to as many people as possible, which is why we’re focussing on submissions and welcoming people who identify anywhere on the non-binary spectrum from the UK to submit articles or other media on a range of different topics, from real life, discussion and opinion, to reviews, artwork, and fiction. As well as that, we’d like this to be a community resource – hosting events, projects, and lists of safe and inclusive groups and organisations. Interested? We have some submissions information here!
Why is it important?
Currently, there’s little in the way of representation or work with non-binary people in the UK, so this project is much needed. A lot of voices are coming out of the US, and Beyond the Binary was in part inspired by all the amazing activism and community resources overseas. Having said that, we are also aware that even within this small group of people, the voices who usually get heard are white, and we encourage and welcome people of colour to submit even if they are based outside of the UK.
There is already a lot of excitement behind this project, and some of the Editorial Team working on putting the site together made a video to explain a bit more about themselves and the impact of this project.
We’d love for this site to look and feel amazing. We deserve a space of our own to express our feelings about the stuff that affects us, laugh about our lives, and inspire others. Let’s make it happen.
Donate via our Indiegogo page here, where you can read more about the project and our cash breakdown. We’ll be providing updates every week as well.
Here’s our INDIEGOGO.
Thanks a lot!

I am so proud of my Scottish heritage right now
post-media fernweh: that restless depression that comes after finishing a particularly good book or movie. may be accompanied by intense creative urges that the sufferer is unable to channel in any meaningful manner.
R.I.P. the actual meaning of the word “aesthetics”
the way this website uses “aesthetics” is 100% in line with the dictionary definition, what’s the weather like up there on your high horse
