2022.01.19 00:44 BlowUpKentucky Any good hair advice?
So my mom is trying to make me get a haircut, and I'm trying to convince her to not make me. I have mostly straight but kinda wavy hair that doesn't go very far down, less than halfway down to my shoulder, and bangs that while long, don't go past my face. Compared to most boys (I'm not a boy but I'm AMAB) I have longer hair, but not necessarily long enough to just call it long IMO. She knows I'm non binary and that I want to express myself in more feminine ways (like growing out my hair), yet she will still continue to say that I need a haircut, and will tell me (In a rather angry tone) that my hair makes me look stupid (She's told me this all my life, and I've always fought with her over my hair, even way before I knew my gender). She always told me that she liked my hair shorter (I can only assume it's because of her expectations for me to be a man), and in the past week when she has shown me hairstyles I should try, they're all very boyish and masculine, and I get dysphoric just from looking at them. I try explaining to her that I want longer hair, and a more feminine hairstyle, but she seems to just block out what I'm saying, argue against a strawman of what my actual point is, and continue her NPC dialogue tree.
So I guess what I'm trying to ask is,
What are some hairstyles you guys could recommend for me?
What could I do to try and deal with my mom(if anything)?
Does she even have a right (morally speaking) to dictate how I wear my hair?
And is it okay for her to tell me that my hair makes me look stupid?

2022.01.19 00:44 I-Own-A-Voice The human is bored: A very late Fleshmas special
“Today is a day of celebration where I come from” Said Mr. Goo, who had donned a Santa hat made from his own flesh.
“And this day, is celebrated? There is happiness in this day?” Questioned the sub queen. Who was also wearing a Santa hat made from her own flesh. To be fair what else was one to do with your own molt, eat it?
“Oh yes, great happiness. There is singing and joy, presents and cheer, and feasts consumed in the honor of Ol' Saint Nick. It's one of the few times that I actually get to see my cousins, they're Christmas puddings after all.” Mr. Goo conversed, wrapping his body around the fleshmas tree.
You see it was quite hard to get a living Christmas tree out in a system that didn't know the meaning of Christmas, but that wasn't going to stop Mr. Goo from trying. The sub queen had been feeling low recently, and it was Mr. Goo's job to ensure that she stayed safe and happy. After all it was hard to convince someone to work for your Agency if they were depressed as shit. So yes, there were ulterior motives, but they were ulterior in the nicest of ways.
Ah yes, the fleshmas tree, well with so many of her kin murdered on a regular basis, they actually had a relatively decent stockpile of food and/or bones. Well they didn't have bones so much as chitin, but hey they weren't a picky race. It did pain the sub queen whenever she ate the spleen of one of her own, after all she had been mentally connected to that spleen once. So with an abundance of building materials Mr. Goo had set to work making the most metal Christmas tree ever.
The bugs had a solid plate of flexible chitin running up their backs, to assist them with moving with such a dumptruck thorax. It was long and relatively thin, and didn't flex backwards too much. The spine as Mr. Goo had creatively called it, supported the rest of the fleshmas tree and kept it upright. Little strips of dried bugflesh hung from the various bones glued to the spine made to look like a tree. It was interesting, the sub queen had never actually seen a tree before, having been spawned in a facility by the Hive Queen that she had been created by.
That line of questioning was quite fascinating, the sub queen had told Mr. Goo that she wasn't the only one. There had been all sorts of mutated queen varieties designed and mutilated for specific purposes. One of interest to Mr. Goo and the Agency was the so called vat queens. They were designed for the specific purpose of piloting the asteroidal capital ships that the sub queen was responsible for producing. Since these asteroidal ships were the main force of the Hive Queen's army the Agency wanted to know everything that they could about them.
Crude as they were, they were heavily armored by nature. Clunky and slow, they contained vast legions of drones slaved to the vat queens within. They were capable of perfect synchronicity and posed quite a threat to anyone unprepared to fight such an enemy. While the individual fighter ships were poorly armed and armored, the vat queens within could adapt to situations quite quickly. This wouldn't be the case immediately, the first ships sent out for conquest would likely fail. However rapid production of the Asteroidal Capital ships and a limitless supply of vat queens allowed for losses to be more than acceptable. More than that, since every vat queen was connected to one another they all learned from the failures of another. One failure was a net gain for the entire combat network.
The sound of the sub queen snacking on the fleshmas tree brought Mr. Goo out of his thoughts. To be polite he too began to snack on the treats hanging from the tree, but got carried away and began to eat into the central spinal column. The tree teetered over Mr. goo, but with some quick thinking, and some quick gooing he filled in the gap with a solidified goo mixture.
“Well that was a close one, that tree is quite tasty If I do say so myself!” Mr. Goo said jovially, the sub queen simply nodded her head while attempting to fit a jerkied arm down her gullet.
The sub queen's attitude shifted in a moment, from relaxed to nervous.
“What is it my queen?” Mr. Goo asked. He had become quite the expert on the bugs physiology, so he knew more or less what she was going to say.
“The Hive Queen is on the station, my guards have been slaughtered where they stood. She is not in a good mood. You must hide.” She said, but Mr. Goo had already disappeared into the tree. The benefits of being made of amorphous solidified goo.
The door blew itself open, a trio of guards entering the room before the Hive Queen. Her own servants had been sent away so that Mr. Goo and herself could have their little celebration. She prostrated herself before the Hive Queen, who simply stood there without saying a word. The sub queen looked upwards at great risk to herself, and saw something that she had never seen before.
A Hive Queen that was afraid.
Ten more guards burst into the room and began to sweep the place, tearing up everything that the sub queen held dear. Everything minus the tree.
“Where is he, where is Kyle!” The Hive Queen shouted in fear. For you see, the last thing she had seen before she awoke from her nightmares had been a giant pine tree, similar to the one made of chitin and flesh that stood in the center of the sub queen's room. The image of the tree had thrown the Hive Queen's mind into disarray, and she feared, no she knew that Kyle had been here.
“I don't know what this Kyle is, but it is just I in here.” The sub queen answered quietly.
“LIES!” She screamed. “Even in my own domain he haunts me. Come guards, we have preparations to make. If he is here, weapons of great destruction are required. And you.” The Hive Queen stared at the sub queen, one predator to another. “Your time is numbered. I already have a new builder queen prototype, fill your function as best you can, and you may yet live.”
If the sub queen was capable of rolling her eyes she would have. She still put on a face of fear, she was good at acting, but she wasn't going to die. No, the lovely Mr. Goo had offered her a job, one she was fully intending on taking. The Agency sounded nice compared to this hell hole.
The Hive Queen left, the sub queen felt her leave the station as confirmed by her freshly fruited guards. Yes she would have to replenish her stock of drones yet again, but not for much longer. They were getting out of here, and she was going to make sure that the Hive Queen was the one to meet her destruction, not her.
Mr. Goo re-materialized out of the fleshmas tree, and began to do as best he could goo.
“Ah well that was most terrifying, but you have my word, you will live on as an Agency asset. Your skills as a hive queen are most valuable. Now where was I. Oh yes, have I told you the story of my great grandgoother. It all began thirty years ago, on a night much like this. They were not much more than a Christmas pudding consigned to their doom, but that's when the hillbillies with tasers attacked. Oh yes, a story for the ages if I do say so myself!”

2022.01.19 00:44 Chris_2111 Telus Fibre and Optik TV - do we need the Telus router?
Hi there, we have the Telus Router T3200M on the main floor, directly fed via a LAN cable from the white Nokia box in the Garage. Attached to it is a Telus 4K TV box that sends the signal to a smaller box attached to the TV (no way to put the router next to the TV). I used to have a Linksys WRT 1900 attached to the router which had much fast speeds and better ping as well as better range, unfortunately it died today.
Question: do we actually need this Telus router or can we replace this with a proper router that is fast, has a long range and also supports the TV boxes?

2022.01.19 00:44 yikesaroo294 I don't want my GF to go on Testosterone
I'm honestly scared to post this, but I hope with some explanation it'll be okay.
I (22 F) am dating my GF of 7 years (F, 24). She's not transgender, but she is very gender non-conforming. She wants to go on Testosterone to continue appearing more GNC, but I'm really not into it.
I'm a femme lesbian. I love butch lesbians especially, but I like feminine traits, and testosterone has side effects I'm not interested in at all. I've been looking into exactly what happens when a female is on it, and I don't know how to feel...
First of all, she's loves singing and is very talented at it. I know it's not impossible to continue singing after being on T, but it will impact her vocal cords and there's plenty of people who've been unable to sing the same ever again. I also don't like deep voices at all, and the idea of my gf's voice changing in that way makes my skin crawl. She'll get more sweaty, grow more hair (I'm fine with body hair, but knowing her genetics she'd probably get suuuper hairy), and her body will change in so many ways the longer she's on it.
I don't know. I know she really wants to do this, and I've went over the side effects with her but she blows it off without really listening, insisting that she's fine with any side effect.
I asked why she wants to go on T, and she says she wants to have a deep voice because she likes the sound of them. She also is really into beards and would like to grow one if possible (I've made it clear I absolutely hate facial hair and wouldn't be okay with that even though I understand she likes them). I just feel like getting a beard and a deep voice isn't worth it; I don't want to sacrifice our relationship over this but I would hate seeing some of these changes enough to inevitably break up.
I have a lot of trauma from men, and the idea of my lesbian girlfriend looking/sounding more like a man makes me feel uneasy. I don't want to hold her down and force her not to follow what she wants, but I'm scared of breaking up over it too if/when she genuinely pursues getting on T - it will make me look bigoted and mean, I'm sure, but I don't know what else to do if it comes down to it. I love her more than anything, but I love her for how she is now and can't imagine having her change so much. I'm also scared of her going on T and then deciding not to continue it, but having long-term effects she will never be able to fully recover from.
Any advice? If breaking up is the only solution in this case, how would I go about it without hurting her?
TLDR: GF wants to go on T, I (lesbian) really can't handle the body impacts that would happen if she did

2022.01.19 00:44 vaguely_sauntering Rx and other mgmt for long-term FLUTD in a healthy cat
Species: cat Age: 1y7mo Sex: neutered Male Breed: domestic med. hair Body weight: 8lbs Hx: Cystitis dx in June 2021, with Hills C/D prescribed (ongoing diet). No other medication at that time. On-and-off improvement. Full obstruction due to crystals 01/06/22 w/ catheter and prazosin + buprenorphine, not long-term rx. Clinical signs: Grooming genitals w/ penis exposure, crouching, on-and-off decrease in urine output, on-and-off unsuccessful effort to void. Duration: This most recent ep.: 3 days. On-and-off for 6mo. Location: Inland NW. Current tx: Hills C/D food. I've taken it on myself to begin adding water to the dish, and building in playtime at night. Other health conditions: n/a. Last bloodwork 01/07/22 had excellent levels.
My Male cat has been giving telltale signs of urinary discomfort on-and-off. He has only obstructed one time. I have been having to monitor his litter box use very closely (he shares boxes with my other cat) and am taking notes on his daily progress. Managing this with food alone is exhausting. I feel very helpless when I see him beginning to groom as I know it means he's struggling. I always wish I had medication to give him to help.
Would you prescribe medication in a case like this? If so, what? Would you suggest as-needed dosage or daily dosage?
I have a vet appointment in 2 weeks to discuss options. I will go to the ER if needed but am desperately avoiding this.
Thank you for your time.
