My wife has a couple of chapters out on Wattpad of a new novella she's publishing in serial. It's named Testing Pandora, and is something of an origin story for a scifi series she's been working on. It is available here:

https://www.wattpad.com/story/60440912-testing-pandora

Xandri Corelel is autistic, which has gotten rare in the far future, after genetic engineering erased it from existence - but there was a fad of natural births, and the so-called 'Pandora' children (including Xandri) that came from that aren't exactly well regarded. She's eking out an existence on the shadow side of her homeworld's society when renowned exploration ship captain Chui Shan Fung comes to her with a job offer...

(BTW, is anyone else annoyed that you can't add a cover image to a link post, or a link to an image post?)

This post is worth a read, and good to understand. There's another post that relates - link below - that one is couched in terms of gender relations rather than race, but both of these apply in a general way to marginalization and privilege.

Worth reading...
“You're the real racist for talking about race!” You've probably come across some of these reactions denying white privilege – if you haven't had them yourself. Here's why it's time to drop them and talk about the real issues.

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

This is a brilliant picture, I think. Campion's work is usually more upbeat, but here he perfectly captures a moment of doubt, or grief.
 
Days like this.

Some days are good, some days are great, and some days you just wonder.... I tend to draw the happy moments, but I also have these moments when I question some choices that were made before.  Just being human I guess. Doubts are not usually fun but they are a part of it all.

So my wife gave me a couple tee shirts for Christmas. This is one. I love her a lot, for good reason. :-)

Two more chapters of Testing Pandora are up. If scifi is your thing, here's where you can get in on a great serial.

Literally the only part of this article that I can disagree in a meaningful way with is when its author says he cannot identify as a gamer. Because, dammit, those scumbags don't get to take that word away from the rest of us. Otherwise, this is a fabulous analysis of the state of games and gaming, and the critique thereof.
Right-wing reactionary gamers use the same tactics as religious right organizations did against video games.

This is the post I referenced in the post referenced below. Its discussion of privilege shows very aptly just how much being male affects your daily life. The abovementioned post was in terms of race instead of gender, but the points made are equally apt. many of this article's points will apply for race also, and many of the points made for race in that post apply for gender. Many of these also apply just as equally to other discrimination, such as sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, etc.

Found via +Jürgen Hubert.
This author shows us how many privileges he gained when he transitioned – and we were blown away by the list.
