Given a weighted graph of a lesbian polycule, find the shortest distance between two nodes. Dyke-stra's algorithm.

And of course I made a typo. Probably because girls.

polyamory, jealousy 

random reminder that even if you consented to polyam relationships you are allowed to feel jealousy and insecurity. feelings are not moral actions and you're entitled to yours. moreover you deserve to be heard even if it's uncomfortable for them; it's not a good dynamic if you feel like you have to mask your feelings.

(not a subtoot, just a random psa)

Loving both women and nonbinary people but mot men (aka being trixenic) is valid.

Loving both men and nonbinary people but not women (aka being torenic) is valid.

@FuchsiaShock Dang. Reminds me of ADHD, too. No one should have to do pointless busy work or wrestle with byzantine bureaucracy just to survive, for example, even if neuro-normative people can tolerate it better than people with ADHD.

sexual violence, homomisia 

Und natürlich sagte er nachdem ein junger Mann (der sowas in den letzten Tagen wohl ziemlich oft beobachtet hat) eingeschritten ist unter anderem: "Was ist denn das Problem? Ich hab Frauen eben gern, ich bin doch nicht schwul!"

sexual violence 

So viel zu "hatte schon lange kein Catcalling mehr". Dafür jetzt direkt ein Typ übergriffig geworden :/

Corona high risk group: the mentally ill 

Friendly reminder that as #Corona might be getting worse again in your country, mentally ill people are again at high risk for breakdowns.

I barely made it through the first lockdown in Austria myself and am still in a deep #depression. If there will be another lockdown tbh. I don't think I'll survive it.

So please don't just practice social distancing, but also distant socializing, with all the people who are important to you, so they don't have the feeling that they are all alone.

Friendly reminder from your neighborhood anarchist: The only reason anyone "needs a job" is because there is a paywall on living.

Zeigt sehr gut, was (zumindest gefühlt) ein Großteil der Konservativen von Wissenschaft hält.


„Ich bin mir auch nicht sicher, ob das was bringt, wenn Wissenschaftler jetzt einfach mal ne Untersuchung machen, sondern ich sage: Wir brauchen Fakten!“

Slomkas Reaktion:

Re last boost: With that in mind: Go ask that person. (Not that I would dare do so myself.)

Has anyone become IRL friends with someone they met on #mastodon ?

Please boost I'm curious

In fact, I'd say some of the basic repair skills, like basic soldering for example, should be included in the compulsory school curriculum too

They're simple enough for most people to learn, and might even show to students that basic repairs are in fact not that hard

We as a society should stop making electronics seem like black magic

I'd imagine a lot of people don't even try repairing things because they think you need an engineering degree or something, due to all the warning stickers and stuff, when in actuality for example to fix a broken headphone cable you need about 5-15 minutes (depending on experience) and a hand steady enough to write with

@elilla @AudreyJune @eve to more directly address the original question, an earlier chunk of that book says pretty much the same thing Dr. Quinn says in the article Audrey linked: estrogen may make ADHD symptoms worse.

> The Estrogen Connection
> Women with AD/ HD must live in their bodies, and those bodies, or more specifically those brains, are subjected to monthly fluctuations of hormone levels. Recent research has confirmed that the brain is a target organ for estrogen and that estrogen’s neuronal effects have important functional consequences. Specifically, estrogen has been found to stimulate certain populations of dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain, to stimulate a significant increase in dopamine2 (D2) receptors in the striatum (Fink, Rosie, Grace, & Quinn, 1996), and to have effects throughout the brain, including midbrain catecholamine and serotonin pathways. Although the mechanism is not fully understood, further studies have established that estrogen regulates dopaminergic neurons in the basal ganglia (Van Hartesvelt & Joyce, 1986). At the neuronal synapse, estrogen increases the concentration of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine (Archer, 1999). Estrogen also seems to inhibit presynaptic dopaminergic neurons and to decrease postsynaptic excitability through a variety of mechanisms (Zakon, 1998). Thus, the cyclical production of estrogen may increase symptoms of AD/ HD by down-regulating dopamine activity.
