Okay but is there latex free stuff? And are the resources cissexist or heterosexist or ableist? Are there specific resources that focus on queer, trans, and disabled folks?
Cuz I love safer sex resources but damn a lot of us get left out of that shit.

Hi! It’s hard to see because I couldn’t get the whole thing in one photo, but there is a lot of stuff for LGBTQ+ folks. :) There’s latex free stuff too (like those yellow condoms in the pic are latex free)! Plus there are dental dams, female condoms, different types of lubricant, regular gloves, finger cots, guides, etc.
That being said, I didn’t get to go through everything. I don’t believe I saw any specific resources for people who are disabled and I really didn’t check for anything ableist, so thank you so much for bringing this up. I’ll go check it again on Monday or Tuesday and talk to some staff at UHC if there are issues. If there’s a resource (like a brand name of something, certain organization to know about, etc.) that you think would be particularly beneficial, please let me know because I’d love to pass it along to UHC staff. When I go back I’ll also check for anything else that’s problematic or exclusive more carefully since I didn’t really go in with a critical eye (it was my first visit). :)

When Tywin Lannister spoke, men obeyed. When Cersei spoke, they felt free to to counsel her, to contradict her, even refuse her. It is all because I am a woman. Because I cannot fight them with a sword. They gave Robert more respect then they give me, and Robert was a witless sot. She would not suffer it, especially not from Jaime.

This is sparkle poi! Poi was created in New Zealand by the Maori people. It is the rhythmic spinning of weights on string. Modern versions include glow poi and sparkle poi. Glow poi uses LEDs or glowsticks to create colorful patterns, and sparkle poi uses lit steel wool. As the steel wool burns, parts fly off causing the effect seen above. I would guess a blue filter has been added, as it normally looks like this


it may be steel wool mixed with like copper chloride or something. still pretty cool

I wanna see foxbear do steel wool poi : D

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

This woman’s example is largely the reason why I took to using my first initial and last name as my signature, way back in high school.

I'm Jay.

They/them pronouns please.

This is a gross blog with mostly funny things, some feminism/gender stuff, fandoms, pretty things, and occasional nsfw. If you need anything tagged please let me know what you need tagged and what i should tag it, I'm not always great about it but I will definitely let you know if i think I might mess up. I post a lot people or drawings of people so if you have scopophobia and need these things tagged it would be best if you didnt follow me. (I would need to tag so much and i just know i would forget and i dont want you to suffer for my lazyness) I'm part of the nonbinary nerd squad
