moose, transparent

программистское

Читаю инструкцию по настройке Багзиллы. Натыкаюсь на такой прелестный отрывок:
bug/process/midair.html.tmpl: This is the page used if two people submit simultaneous changes to the same bug. The second person to submit their changes will get this page to tell them what the first person did, and ask if they wish to overwrite those changes or go back and revisit the bug. The default title and header on this page read "Mid-air collision detected!" If you work in the aviation industry, or other environment where this might be found offensive (yes, we have true stories of this happening) you'll want to change this to something more appropriate for your environment.

gender identity (англ.)

Любопытная статья в San Francisco Chronicle о всяческих новых, и не очень, сленговых терминах для более точной идентификации половой ориентации:
The list of terms -- which have hotly contested definitions -- goes on: "FTM" for female to male, "MTF" for male to female, "boydyke," "trannyboy, " "trannyfag," "multigendered," "polygendered," "queerboi," "transboi," "transguy," "transman," "half-dyke," "bi-dyke," "stud," "stem," "trisexual," "omnisexual," and "multisexual."
[...]
Justin, who is 19 and didn't want to use his last name because he's not out to his family as transgender, calls himself a "boi" -- with an "i" -- because he feels like a boy -- with a "y" -- but "I don't have the boy parts, as much as I wish I did."

"I'm still learning the ropes of just being me," he added.
[...]
Genderqueer: Someone who views the gender options as more than just male and female or who doesn't fit into the binary male-female system.

Trannydyke: A transgender person attracted to people with a more feminine gender.

Trannyfag: A transgender person attracted to people with a more masculine gender.

Boi: A boyish gay guy or a biological female with a boyish presentation.

Heteroflexible: A straight person with a queer mind-set.

Но это ещё что. Я тут узнал, что, оказывается, существует коммьюнити в ЖЖ, под названием gender_petition, цель существования которой — добиться, чтобы при создании журнала в ЖЖ можно было указывать свой пол не только как мужской или женский (или вообще не указывать, как тоже можно сейчас), но и разные другие альтернативные гендеры. 1239 участников, между прочим! У них и опрос есть насчёт того, какие опции следует добавить; самое душераздирающее в этом опросе — ответы в секции "Other".
