YAY! I am so happy for you! It's nice to hear that the system works for once. I'm still waiting on the disability ruling in Israel. I have a neurologist appointment I need to do, and then they can submit all the paperwork for review. I don't comment often, but I read all of your updates, and send you tons of good wishes and penguin hugs.

They are lying bastards. How in the hell can you walk when you cant get out of a seated position? I swear to god they just write whatever they fell like on those reports. You make dam sure you get your MP involved sweetie. Its amazing what an arse kicking from an MP can achieve when it is aimed in the DWPs direction ;) PS been missing you on FB and I have a penguin video for you when you come back

Comment on My Identity, Pronouns and Titles by Danni

Like most things in life, it's complicated. Unfortunately I'm not able to explain it properly- it was hard enough explaining my own stuff. Most people see the binary genders as male and female.

Binary genders are masculine and feminine, surely (but what about neuter?). Male and female are sexes, not genders, and depend on x/y chromosome difference. OK, I know I'm a pedant, and I should try harder to keep my pedantic urges under control.

My 13yo daughter describes herself exactly the way you do, pretty much word for word. I totally support her in whatever identity and orientation feels right for her. Kiddo lets people use "her", just for ease of communication. Pronouns have no importance for kiddo, but she respects other people's choices of pronouns and identities. I'm an old school lipstick lesbian, with a rare occasional interest in men. I'm mostly attracted to people I find interesting, regardless of the package they come in. I raised kiddo to ask what people prefer to be called, and to make a point to remember it. Some of kiddo's dark skinned friends are Black, some are African American, some are Temani, and others are Ethiopian. For me, pronouns are trickier, because I learned grammar 50 some years ago, when it was drilled into my head that they/them was only used for plural. When you think that way, it makes noun/verb agreement tricky! I do try my best, though, to keep up with the times. ;-)

Comment on Blogging Against Disablism Day 2016: What I Want To See by ysabet

If you want more writing/art/stuff about people with disabilities, I highly recommend crowdfunding. You can find projects that already feature those things and support them. You can watch for open prompt calls and ask for what you want to see. You can boost the signal for any of those to attract more fans and more donations. I do a variety of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. I've got plenty of characters with disabilities, including some series (such as P.I.E. and Walking the Beat) where the main characters are. Next up for me is the Poetry Fishbowl on May 3, with a theme of "schooling vs. education." Feel free to drop by and give me some prompts. Prompters get a free backchannel copy of what they inspire. See the advance announcement.

I'm not finding anything when searching that name (other than unrelated non-fiction books) on Amazon or Goodreads. Do you have the spelling right or can you name one of his books?

I wouldnt say they were true young adult but it depends what race the books about Stuff like chaos tends to be very grey abd violent were as elder (space elves) would probs be more subdued and calmer using Diffrent methods to build the characters Look at somthing by Dan Abbot he's one of my faves

I don't think they're classed as young adult but I'll look into them. I'm mostly after young adult as they're easier to read. I know the Star Trek books have been a bit hard for me recently unless I've read them before so I'm way behind on them.
