From The Life and Imagination of Sally Paul, 1760, the autobiography of a nonbinary person from London who worked as a sailor, and would dress in both men and women's clothing. The year their autobiography was published, they had married a woman as a man, under the name Samuel Bundy, been outed and arrested, and then freed because their wife refused to press charges. Only nine months later, they married again, this time to a man named William Kitchen, as a woman.

If your keyboard supports swapping out keycaps, consider pulling your spacebar and flipping it around.
Instead of resting your thumb on an edge, it lets you have a smooth experience for your thumbs.
It's a nice, simple improvement. (And if you don't like it, swap it back.)
(Note: If you can't swap keycaps on your keboard, pulling a spacebar off will wreck your keyboard. 😱 So don't do it in that case. 😉)
It's that time of the month again -- the July 2020 Update Blog is live!
I have said we have too much news to list for several previous entries, but that's especially true today. This is the biggest update we've had yet.
Where did it come from that when we specify personal pronouns, we write it like "she/her" or "they/them" or "he/him"? I mean why specifically write out just those two forms of the third-person singular pronoun, when it has four different forms?
I would have thought it's enough to just say the first one when informing about your pronouns, but is there some context regarding it that I'm missing?
It's only now that I took a look at actual drowning statistics that I realize what was actually going on. Deaths by drowning went drastically down right around the time I was born, because apparently that's when we started focusing even more on educating people and making water safer, or something? I don't know, I just realize now that there used to be an actual problem, but I've only lived late enough to mostly just see the preventative measures implemented against that problem. 🤔
