PSA, please boost! If you take testosterone as a shot, one thing you need to watch out for is the vial "crystalizing". I was warned about this, but had no idea what it looked like until my vial was quite advanced. I've attached photos so others know what the crystals look like. The crystals will dissolve if you gently warm it up by putting it in your pocket for 5-10 minutes. If they don't, it's time to get a new vial.
The Nonbinary.Wiki has huge lists of gender-variant deities, saints, & spirits from around the world, what we know about how their identities are variant, & what they're patrons of. Looking for a genderqueer patron deity of music? Or for a not-so-female correspondence of the planet Venus? Here: https://nonbinary.wiki/wiki/Gender_variance_in_spirituality
Is there such a thing as part-time jobs that offer benefits like health insurance and/or 401(k)? If so, what jobs offer those?
I've heard the answer to this is simply "No, only full-time jobs do that, and only because they're required to," but further inquiry is worth a try.

@dzuk I like that we have emojos for a bunch of pronouns, like & These are nice & compact for putting in one's profile. Can we please have an emojo for e/em, too? It would mean a lot to me.
I like spivak pronouns the best, by far, ever since encountering them before I'd ever heard of nonbinary people or any pronoun debate. E/em/eir/eirs/emself. But singular "they" pronouns are the path of least resistance, in this situation where every path is impossibly high resistance.
Do I demand what suits me best, in my social transition, though it's unlikely to be accommodated? Or do I settle for asking for the best I'm likely to get, even though it's not my favorite?
Me: I wonder if I could write a game about what it feels like to try and express and understand therian identity.
me: ...oh, right. Brave Sparrow already exists.

Spoilers for Steven Universe episode "Familiar"; gross
By this episode, we learned that ALL of Steven's body fluids have the power to heal/animate any matter, whether animal, mineral, OR vegetable, by imbuing them with some of his gem's characteristics. This is a bountiful source of fridge horror.
Like, remember the time Steven complained about having to pee outside in the grass?
In general if anyone else has any articles off hand about NB identities that fall in the realm of having to do with identifying as some form of nonhuman, I'd love to take a read! I'm not well-versed in furry community and such on sites outside of tumblr, so trying to find these sorts of things is hard for me.
Animal Crossing: Wild World question
There are always new surprises to find in this game, even years after its release. What's your favorite little hidden thing in AC:WW that you discovered only after playing it for ages?
Robin Hood (1955 TV series, it's on Amazon Prime) was written by blacklisted leftists, which explains why the writing's so intense, and also explains the part where Friar Tuck is helping a physician treat an outlaw, and turns toward the camera and says sternly, "Everyone has the right to healthcare!"
