Ursula fan art by Marian Churchland.
Now this is what we mean when we say draw Ursula being a fashionable babe without making her thin.
About the whole “bisexuals are just confused” thing, and related queer issues about whether people “authentically” fit in whatever label—it’s wrong to assume that if people don’t fit in the categories that you personally understand then they actually do and don’t know it, but also, sometimes there’s value in being confused, because that’s part of the process of questioning yourself, and everyone has to go through that process in some part of their lives. Many of us who’ve been raised in a restrictive context and had a limited version of who we are drilled into us need to go through that process. The label you’re currently using may not be the one you end up with. Sometimes you need to try on different identities on like clothes to see which is the one that fits you. And that’s OK.
Some people will know what they’re on about right away. Others have to go through a long and painful struggle to figure it out. These people deserve respect and support just as much as the first kind, and they both have valuable perspectives to offer. That applies to sexuality as well as a lot of other things.
A couple of days ago I accidentally viewed (and responded to) some messages on the #notyoudd tag, due to the iPad’s filters not working right. For which apologies again. Problem’s been fixed, as far as I can tell.
One thing, though. I see that folks have been looking for (cough) off-the-grid (cough) free copies of the New Millennium Edition ebook of A Wizard Alone. Please don’t do that. There’s a chance you’ll get infected with viruses and crap.
For the next day and a half or so the ebook is available for 100% discount, i.e. free, at the store. So go get what you need, and if you know someone who’s been looking, point them at the link. I’m averting my eyes, ok? Thanks.

let me explain you a thing
*knocks over chair*
*runs out of room*
LEARN YOUR HISTORY!!!
This needs to be a book, like “We Were Always Here: The Unsung [Minorities?] Who Built Fan Culture”
My mom was in it from the beginning and she’s told me all about how the early cons were organized by women and how the guys started showing up in order to meet women.
How can anyone *not* know about Joan Winston and Bjo Trimble? I think I still have my forty-year-old copy of Trimble’s Star Trek Concordance!
*waves phaser weakly at young’uns and tells them to get off her, um, bridge*
One of those books has a pic of me standing on stage in the Commodore Hotel in NY with Joanie, I believe. With long blonde hair down to there. (I was doing blonde at that point. You should have seen me a bit later on, when I went platinum.) …God, I cured one whole concom of flu by giving them aspirin and telling them it was antibiotics. (I checked to make sure none of them were aspirin-allergic first.) That was the con where I was standing twenty feet from where Bill Shatner got hit with a pie during his talk, and when I freaked out (as various of us did) Leonard Nimoy patted me on the shoulder and said, “Calm down, it’ll be okay.” That was the con when I cured Dr. McCoy’s sore throat. :) Viscous xylocaine. Worked like a charm.
…Good times, good times. Sure, there were a few boys around here and there. Our con chair, and Ben Yalow, and a couple of others. Who had time to notice such things? We were too busy making sure everything kept running.
(I knew Bjo and John, too, when I moved out to LA. Such sweet people.)
assuming shes average height. her boobs appear to be about 1/3 her torso and average torso of a female being 22.6” her boobs are about 7.5” long. a foot is 12 inches. theyre moving at 5,600ft aka 67200 inches a second. her boobs are flopping 8960 times a second.
8960 flops per second would result in the shockwaves from her breasts emitting an 8960 Hz tone, which is actually a very shrill noise within the range of human hearing. You can enter 8960 into this website to hear an audio sample of what her breast-tone would approximately sound like
Did all of you major in boob math
Here’s two words in boob physics for you: nipple whiplash.
Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this.
Hmmm, I wonder how this is for trans men.
