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.

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?

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!"

How about this? If my Masto title includes my pronouns in this format, "e/em," would the average person be able to guess that they're pronouns, and how to use them? Or is it more intuitive if the title just says "emself" instead? I think including every form of the pronoun set makes for too long of a title, and the character limit doesn't give room for it in my bio. Most people wouldn't know the meaning if I just wrote "spivak" or "spivak pronouns." What communicates it best?
Also, a Metro article about someone who identifies as an agender alien.
Today, the Metro just ran a short article about otherkin.

Hey we've experimented with naming our class that's aimed at anyone who's felt alienated from traditional bike shops on the basis of gender dynamics/macho culture the "women+gender non-conforming" group, someone else likes WTF for Women Trans* and Feminine people, or the "no dudes" class, there are a few other options but no clear winner...
It started out as a "Women's" bike class, but we wanted to explicitly welcome trans women and nb people who want that deliberately curated space, especially when learning the basics.
What title makes you explicitly feel invited? What title makes you unsure or unwelcome?
