Jess Mahler

Jess has spent several years pulling together a family-of-choice from across the country. The family hopes to settle in the Appalachians where Jess’ heart has been rooted for as long as she can remember.
Health issues keep her from taking a active role in tikkun olam so she writes to spread ideas and explore different ways of living and being.
Jess has 15 years in polyam relationships. As an autistic autodidact, you never know when she’ll pull an odd bit of knowledge out of her back pocket.

Morning all.

Woke up from a dream that gave me lots of thoughts about my father, autism parents, and how masking damages relationships. Did a thread on twitter for folks interested

We're supposed to go thrifting today, and I'll be looking for a new kiddush cup (ours broke). Wish me luck!

If I had money I’d place a lot of bets on current medical “mysteries.”

- Much obesity is untreated fatigue misinterpreted as hunger
- Many things that claim to “improve sex drive” in women (trans&cis) just improve pelvic floor stability

Alrighty, my little mimichtin, time to thread up about social rules in the Aztec Empire.

First things first, as always, do keep in mind that this was an *empire*. It spanned across many cultures, many cities, and tribes. There will always be some cultural differences here and there so this largely applies to Tenochtitlan. Some information is also debated, due to *G E N O C I D E*. Much information formally recognized comes from Spanish Codices written Catholic friars, so 🤷

Of all the varying approaches to 'gender neutral' greetings and introductions I've come across, I definitely like this one best.

writing about kink, Gor, misogyny

I swear to god, the hardest 'kink' for me to write about is Gorean.

My basic approach to writing non-fiction is a rather pagan 'an it harm none' philosophy. The nature of my writing means I'm frequently writing about stuff that I haven't personally experienced or that is from a different ethical or philosophical standpoint than my own. And my goal is to help people *decide for themselves* what they want, *not* tell them what to do.
