It’s Not A Trap!

I wear my hair long sometimes, and I have nice legs (according to some); so when Iโ€™m crossdressing, from the back I can still sometimes pass as a woman. Then of course I turn around to display the beard and lack of tits, and the brief illusion dissipates. Nevertheless it lasted long enough that while …

Fuck Depression

Depression lies. Depression kills. Depression nearly took me a few years ago, but I had friends who got to me in time. But it got Robin Williams today, and to hell with it. To quote a friend: If youโ€™re hurting, if youโ€™re sad, if you need help – please, please, please find what you need. …

Rearranging the Furniture

Ideas for a shoot are cheap: I must have a dozen right now. Even if I leave out the scenarios which are completely impossible due to the laws of physics, lack of winning million-dollar lottery tickets, or risk of physical injury; I’ve still got plenty. But as the previous sentence implied, even the simpler shoots …

Harassment at Arisia

Arisia is a science-fiction convention in New England which takes its name from the remote, mysterious guiders of Galactic Civilization in the “Lensman” books. As such, I find it interesting how they handled a harassment report at their convention. Read the LiveJournal reports – you may find them interesting. I’d like to see this as …

Harassment

Whether it be a fan con or a lifestyle event, from this day forward I will do everything in my power to make sure that every convention with which I am involved has an anti-harassment policy in place, well-publicized, and enforced. For decades, I have been under the impression that fans and kinky people were …

A Twitter conversation… [friend]: Awesome thing I forgot to mention earlier: I finally have an official dotgov.gov domain registration account ๐Ÿ˜€ [me]: I’m guessing I can’t bribe you to register “shokolada.gov” for me, though. ๐Ÿ˜› [friend]: *giggles* Not really, unless you can come up with some official-y agency or program acronym that matches ๐Ÿ˜› [me]: …

Girls with Slingshots

And now, I would like to take a moment and plug the excellent webcomic “Girls with Slingshots” by the charming Danielle Corsetto. I am doing this in part because I’ve enjoyed her work for years and wish to encourage people to support her strip, and in part because I accidentally got to have dinner with …

Why I’m Pleased With FetFest

An object lesson on how wonderful it can be when things go wrong: My messy dessert play class at FetFest had to be relocated to an area with easier access to running water and power. However, we were confused, and relocated to the wrong area. Once we found out, we relocated to the correct area, …
