1. Tumblr for Trans Jews

    transjewry:

    Shalom, let me take a moment to introduce TransJewry — the TL;DR? A blog whose primary aim is transgender and non-binary Jews of all backgrounds, which posts resources and materials that are otherwise extremely difficult to find as a small community.

    I talk more about myself and the blog here, but feel free to ask questions or share resources. I would love for this to be shared, so that this becomes an active and easily accessible resource for those who need it!

WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
A full list can be found here, another cosmetic-specific one here.
Here’s some articles on the subject:

http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/700482/ARACHIS_HYPOGAEA_(PEANUT)_OIL/
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!

YES THIS IS ACTUALLY VERY IMPORTANT

    Urbance is literally about forbidden hetero romance in a land where everyone is gay. evil gay overlords stoppin the hetero. the designs are gorgeous but be aware of what you’re potentially funding. Not saying funding it is that black and white either -it’s nice to see a cast that is primarily black, for instance, but every time Urbance info goes around I end up seeing people get disappointed when they learn the premise.

    so Charlotte Bronte read Emma by Jane Austen and was really interested in this minor character named Jane Fairfax who was poor and would have been a governess had she not married well and then Bronte wrote her own novel exploring the plight of the poor governess who married this guy named Edward Fairfax Rochester in a novel called Jane Eyre and my point is don’t let anyone tell you shit about fanfiction.

    Seeing what tricks my new pet knows during my first session

    outofcontextdnd:

    Me: Roll over.

    GM: The hedgehog rolls over. It’s adorable.

    Me: Stay.

    GM: You take a few steps away. The hedgehog remains where it is.

    Me: Heel.

    GM: The hedgehog heals you for 5 HP.

    Me: Holy shit.

For those who confuse “could care less” and “couldn’t care less” here is the greatest unprofessional chart you will ever see.
