[FR/EN] Transfem HRT injections calculator -- please boost 🔄 


TransfemScience just published a very very effective online simulator of estradiol levels for estradiol injections, based on the esther (valerate, enanthate, cypionate ...), dose and interval you want to use.

As far as estradiol enanthate goes, the predictions are very close to the ~20 blood tests I've had since February 2020 (to estimate these same curves and verify they were stable) but I've had them by subcutaneous injection, whereas the tool only approximates results for intramuscular in theory. However, of course, your personal results will vary based on many variables that can't be implemented in the simulation.

The simulation data are based off an informal meta-analysis also published by TransfemScience.




Le site TransfemScience vient de publier un simulateur de taux d'estradiol pour les produits injectables, où vous pouvez faire varier l'esther (valerate, enanthate, cypionate ...) ainsi que la dose et l'intervalle d'injection.

Dans le cas de l'estradiol enanthate, les prédictions sont conformes à la vingtaine de tests sanguins que j'ai fait depuis février 2020 (justement pour estimer ces courbes et contrôler leur stabilité), mais je fais mes injections en sous-cutané et le calculateur n'affiche que des estimations pour les injections intramusculaires. Cependant, de toute évidence, des résultats individuels varient selon de nombreux facteurs qui ne peuvent être pris en compte dans une telle simulation.

Les données qui ont permis la création de cet outil proviennent d'une méta-analyse informelle, elle aussi publiée par TransfemScience.

happy plural pride day from our system :plural_heart::plural_heart::plural_heart:

Barkeep boosted rules update 

Heya folks from Plural Café and elsewhere, we're looking to rephrase the rules again and to use the new (now a few months old) "server rules" feature in Mastodon. We experimented before with trying to write our anti-oppression policy as positive Values, but we're not happy with how it ended up just being a laundry list of "anti-racism, anti-ableism, nonbinary inclusive, etc." - which is okay as a statement but far too long for folks to read.

Please take a look and let us know what you think.

Apparently today is . Wasn't aware that was a thing, but it's appreciated nonetheless.

To all our nonbinary/agender/gender non-conforming/etc. peeps, take a moment to remind yourself that you're 100% valid, all year long, no matter what anyone says.

It's our two years anniversary of realizing we're plural! Which is also the day Gotos considers his birthday! (He's much, much older tho. He's been with us for over 15 years if I'm not mistaken and being a fictive there's a few aeons more :D)

"My my, what a curious hoard," the prince said. He spied several items that seemed out-of-place. Mystical tomes, foreign delicacies, even a few vials of holy water.

"I collect that which your kind covets," the dragon replied. "Monetary value is not all that exists."

"Is that so?" The prince thought for a moment. "Then, if I may ask, what item in your hoard would you say is most valuable?"

The dragon didn't even hesitate. "Come now, your highness. Surely you must know the answer by now~"

The prince chuckled. "Don't you forget it, my love~"

Headmate art 

Been working on this for the last three days or so as a gift- Kaz and us (Peeps). 8 hours total to finish this, absolutely worth it.

General exploration 

Hey. We discovered today, that it is not so quite here in comparison to twitter, than we thought. Ju clicked on the menu points Plural Café and found a lot of toots to our surprise, and then on Federated, and found even more.

Now he is turned red and doesn't know what do feel.

Well, we keep on getting experience with social media, and so for us (Phil, Sascha, Pichan, N33) it's ok to know you've overseen a lot of things by not knowing they are there.

Am curious how our final balance will be (between Twitter and Mastodon).

Have a nice weekend

silly pets 

we got up to do something last night and our gf's cat, Steve, was up begging us to pay attention and we look down and she's clearly leading us to the empty food bowl. So we fill it, wander off to the bathroom, and she follows us in, headbutts our leg a few times, and then walks out.

She went through all the effort to thank us before she ate anything. Silly lovely cat.

Automatic art, lots of drawn eyes 

Did some automatic drawing today (drawing without consciously directing it), came out pretty interesting! Way more eye shapes than anticipated. Usually we get things that look more like distorted people.

Realizing and getting in touch with the fact I am clearly an obsessive kind of person, and that it derails my days and nights.

Just learning tonight that more than 25% of people having bipolar disorder do have obsessive behavior, why did nobody tell me that

Putting this in public so that it can help someone as clueless as myself hopefully

I guess the best compromise between security and usability will be to have a separate device with tor and stuff

(gets a used phone)
(installs lineageOS)
(feverish couple days of intense hyperfocus on configuration, hardening, exploring alternatives, rooting to privileged fdroid, buying dogecoin???, setting up secure rsync backups etc.)

ah finally a decent setup, this feels good :>

R: (starts using her accs on the separate phone)
E: :thonking: ...oooh. oh!
E: so this is what this was all about
