My feminism/queer/other progressive values activism channel: ToplessTopics
Hiya! I'm a content creator who focuses on covering a wide variety of subjects, from progressive politics to parenting, gaming to arts and crafts, and I do it all from the perspective of "normalizing female toplessness through repeat exposure". Basically, providing an example of how a woman can be topless WITHOUT it automatically being considered "pornographic."

This is the first paragraph in a Time magazine article titled " #LongCovid doesn't always look like you think it does" that I highlighted the parts I also felt, even the "foot buzzing" that, like most of the symptoms I went to the doctor for after our first infection in 2020 long before they even knew about long covid, the doctor had no idea how to explain. And this doesn't even include the one-sided "pressure" headache I've had since August 2020, or the feeling of constantly having to swallow I had for months. The leg pain thing is how we first knew the kids had a second infection--they both started complaining that their legs hurt, and a day or two later they both came down with the rest of the usual symptoms and tested positive. Thankfully they're mostly all healthy now, but they do still complain of leg pain off and on. The foot buzzing is especially weird... I distinctly remember describing it exactly that way, "buzzing," and over that years memorial day (I remember because we went to the beach) it was so intense I could barely walk.
It drives me insane that there are still so many Maga science deniers who fully believe covid is "jUsT a CoLd". Covid is unlike any worldwide disease we've dealt with in recent memory, and it's STILL constantly mutating, thanks to disadvantages countries and our own sizeable dmba** population that can't or won't get the shot. People have pretty much entirely stopped masking, even in areas with high infection rates, even when they're visibly showing signs of illness, and of course jobs stopped paying for isolation sick days a long time ago. People and world governments can try all they like to pretend that covid is a distant memory that we'll never have to deal with the likes of again... But it's not, it's endemic and ever changing, and it's only one of many we'll get slammed with as climate change ever worsens the world's natural stability. Wear a mask and buckle up.
I spent about nine hours straight drawing in Photoshop today. I mean it was broken up somewhat by taking care of the kids, cooking dinner, etc, but otherwise I just searched for reference photos and... Drew. I don't have anything even close to done enough to show off, but it feels so nice to catch the drawing bug again. Now I just gotta hold onto it long enough to actually finish something!
I hate ending most of my comments with "lol" but I hate the idea of my light jokes being misinterpreted as bitchy critiques more.
trying to be a #contentCreator with kids is fuuuun. Apologies to my viewers for all the off-camera yelling.
I didn't actually get to the "nude" part of what I'm drawing and the kids are coming home any minute so I'm gonna stream at https://www.twitch.tv/cerigotgame now for a while. 🙂
Just started today's livestream at https://www.joystick.tv/u/toplesstopics ! I don't have a video file ready to start editing, so I figure I'll offer two possible activities for today's stream, y'all let me know which you prefer:
resume playing Being a Dik, the adult game set in a college full of big busty thirst traps that has surprisingly amusing writing;
draw "eerawtic" (newed) digital art while we play some movie in the corner
Come hang out in the stream and let me know!
Finally home and getting set up for today's livestream at https://www.joystick.tv/u/toplesstopics in 15 minutes. I don't have a video file ready to start editing, so I figure I'll offer two possible activities for today's stream, y'all let me know which you prefer:
- resume playing Being a Dik, the adult game set in a college full of big busty thirst traps that has surprisingly amusing writing;
- draw "erotic" (nude) digital art while we play some movie in the corner
... Oookay, my errands are done except for picking up the ice skating passes we won in a raffle, but they've got one person only at the front desk and she's running around trying to find where her coworker left the passes, and I asked to use the bathroom while I wait but the bathroom light won't turn on... I thought I'd be home to start the livestream at noon pst as usual, but we'll see I guess 😅
Might start the stream late today... I gotta get dog food since I forgot to after getting my hair done yesterday, and pick up the free ice skating passes we won in a raffle 😊
Yesterday Aeden somehow sat on the door hinge (the part that sticks out between the door and the wall frame) and scratched himself right near his tailbone, and was still complaining it hurt today... I emailed his teacher to tell her that he is, literally, "butt hurt" 😂
He also kept saying his "balls" hurt before I determined he meant by his tailbone, where he continued to insist he has a second pair of balls because "he can feel one there"... I assume he means the literal nub we all have at the base of our spine from vestigial tails, which he apparently thinks is a testicle 😂😂
It's honestly astonishing how quickly every year the world is becoming much worse. If I believed in religion, I could almost be convinced we really are in end times.
https://youtu.be/6fHvhXdKCEs?si=Rx_ztQrOHLo5KxDP uh oh the BG3 fanboys caught wind of my mild critique of a single shitty quest setup in a game I already have 40 hours into, better alert the banhammer!
Seriously, fanboys are wild to me. How flimsy is your "love" of a piece of media if it takes a random person on the internet mildly critiquing part of it to send you into paroxysms of rage? If you think your Favorite Thing Of All Time is so great, just keep scrolling. You're not going to change anyone's mind by insulting them (I didn't even insult BG3, just said this one quest pissed me off)
Well... It's not carrot top red, but what do you think? 😅
... My dad just came downstairs and asked in concern "what was all that fuss this morning, something about getting on busses?"
... He has forgotten I have children to get off to school every week day.
... After the memory test he did last week, they said he has "mild" dementia, and there aren't really any drugs he can take to slow it down (unlike what his pcp said when ordering the memory test) and all we can do is try to get my dad to do brain teasers or something like that.
... I'm scared.
I'm glad we went out on Saturday, because we're right back to constant cold and rain 😩 Portland winters never end, until they suddenly do, and we jump right into 90+ degrees weather until it's cold and wet again... Climate change is fun
My right arm socket has felt strained and sore all day and I can only assume it's from ice skating with the kids yesterday... I only fell once, barely at all, and it was because of the assholes leaving deep perpendicular grooves from trying to do "cool tricks" 😖
matthew is insisting we play Baldurs Gate 3, instead any of the many survival and/or crafting games I'd rather play (sons of the forest, 7 days to die, ark, green hell, smallworld, grounded, v rising, satisfactory, etc etc etc) and he has insisted I go back to a pre-conversation save over and over for TWENTY MINUTES so he can pass this mild religious check for mere flavor text, and he won't even equip the +1 religion ring I have offered him repeatedly...I'm not opposed to save scrubbing if it actually has a significant impact on the plot, but I'm so not having fun right now 🙃
This. So much love. This young skateboarder who goes by the name Skatbirker never gave up. And he had a village of support. When he finally pulls it off. So good. Imagine being lifted up by so many people. What a delight.
Slow-mo version and more clips on his Insta:
Skatebirker trying the same trick repeatedly. It’s down a flight of about 10 concrete steps in a skatepark. A giant crowd of people are all watching all around him. When he finally succeeds, he raises his hands in bliss while a sea of people surround him and lift him up.
