folks with disabilities, no matter the kind, please pass this around! get the word out, in case there are other folks that are unaware of the addon since it could be of great help for accessibility throughout the incredibly inaccessible internet.
so in my attempts to replace the now thoroughly fucked and now money-subscription-based Readability project, the page/addon meant to alter web pages to actually make them readable, i found a neat little addon this morning for firefox that is completely free.
behold, Blank Your Monitor and Easy Reading [link is to the official Mozilla addon hub, not third party].
Blank Your Monitor can change the colors of the pages you’re viewing to anything you configure them to with the click of one button, or by hitting Ctrl-Alt-B. the options to alter these colors are located in a drop menu next to the addon button.
Easy Reading allows you to change the colors for specific portions of text, be it through highlighting them and hitting Ctrl+Alt+Z or clicking Easy Reading in the righthand menu, or hovering over them with your mouse if you have that option enabled. this one is especially important to me bc i have a hard time picking out text to follow in paragraphs, as sometimes i accidentally read words from other lines and getting sentences mixed up as a result. this feature can be helpful not just for folks with visual impairments, but also cognitive disorders and conditions such as AD/HD [i learned my habit of highlighting specific portions of text to read from someone with AD/HD and it’s been a godsend]
note, tho, that the project’s last update was from november 2011. so it may not work for everyone, depending on their installed version of firefox, and i do not know if they are still actively updating it. but if it does work for you, dear god is it amazing. technically the options available through this addon are available in firefox itself, but it makes the configuration and ability to switch between the settings significantly easier since all you have to do to switch is hit the button or use the hotkeys.
I was on the Party City website and found a few things that might be nice for cosplayers.
- These horns could work nice for Gamzee if you can get the paint off, and could be repainted. (only $10)
- These horns could be great Aradia horns if you can get the paint off and repain them. (only $8)
- This could possibly be a base for a 2x3dent (only $4)
- These gloves could work well for Neophyte Redglare or Terezi in her Flarp outfit, but they are kind of a shiny material being satin. ($13)
- This horn could be a Gamzee prop, but always be courteous to other people and don’t honk it too much, too loudly or in someone else’s ear. (#7)

Hey guys!! this came up recently and has just come up again, does anyone have any resources or perspectives on asexual kink? I know of a bunch of people who are ace and kinky, but I’m never sure how comfortable they would be with being referred as a possible source of information/kinkjams.
I’m really good at talking about my kink boundaries myself, but I don’t have much of a perspective on being ace, so I’m hoping for like, some other people who wouldn’t mind being referred as a person to talk to?
Also I recall seeing an article on tips w/ negotiating consent during sexy stuff with ace people, does anyone have the link to that? Or any similar resources!

This can be done as either an Ask Meme or a 15 Day Challenge depending on your preference. I will personally be doing this as a 15 day meme because I want to answer ALL THE QUESTIONS and I rarely get to do that with ask memes. :P
