It's simultaneously the logo for Forever Labs (TNGs startup), and the glider pattern in Conway's Game of Life, and also the proposed 'hacker logo's from The Hacker's Manifesto.

I love that, I'm struggling a lot with my own identity at the moment and definitely need to Glow Up. Heh. I agree completely with the clique aspect, that's something that has always put me off.

I've been reading through Queer: A Graphic History and it's been simultaneously helpful, eye opening, and not entirely unlike having my brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.

The lingo can be so obtuse, especially as this is coming from an academic perspective, but then groups take offence with the use of certain terms, others revere them as symbols of power over hated, sometimes the terms exclude people in one context but include them in another... Ow.

So here's two questions for you:

1) What lingo comes up the most in your day to day life?

2) How do you feel about the QUILTBAG (love it) community?

And yet no mention of TF2, not even a clip. Blergh.

That looks great and I can't wait to give it a try, oats and banana? That demands maple syrup to me!

Same, not vegan but looking to move away from my current diet, so definitely looking forward to seeing more from you.

In context of the article, it's more about being in-the-closet versus being out. The author talks about them refusing to recognise their sexuality because identifying as straight affords them certain civil liberties.

Still, the idea of man on man sex being strictly gay is one I'm not convinced of. Historically it's been accepted as manly when giving but weak / womanly when receiving, it's outdated thinking for sure, but our concepts of sexuality and identity are something that's constantly being developed so I'm interested to see what discussion we get on Hubski about this.

Let him know we're all thinking of him :)

So I'm either a misfit or a dreamer, great!

Interesting that the author mentions degendering the text, and it appears they may well have done. That's a nice touch, though the writing style is still very... Bullish? Masculine? I wonder how young people today would interpret the text.

I don't have anything to add, you hit the nail on the head, so instead I'll suggest Pump Six and Other Stories, the titular story is the relevant one here, but the rest are decent too!

Congratulations, that's a fantastic improvement, great work rob05c.

I would love to DONATE again but I'm pretty broke, sorry!

Hi ellie, I've only just seen this but thanks for sharing, that does look pretty good!

My vegan flatmate in uni made some awesome american-style pancakes, I was wondering if you had a recipe for that? I've been thinking of going vegan / meat-free and would love to start with those. Thanks, and great job with the blog so far :)
