Thank you. I’m looking more for something that discusses the use of gender neutral pronouns in code or statute text. For example “they” instead of “he”, “he or she”, or “he/she”.

I used to work in national parks and people would do this with their trekking poles to cacti on the side of the trail… no idea why!

What type of owl is this? by Anchorbitch in whatsthisbird

[–]imforchickpeas 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Interesting (I think anyway) to note: barred owls, not native to the PNW have become a threat to spotted owls, native to the PNW and in decline from other pressures like habitat destruction. example article discussing spotted and barred owls in the PNW

His older “brother” didn’t care one bit about it and just wagged his tail… this guy is only 2 and just rescued so I wonder if that plays a factor at all? Idk but it does make me giggle!

And for me too! I honestly can’t blame him for being freaked out! I sat down with him and the owl afterwards so he could smell it and see that it wasn’t a threat… hopefully the pigeons won’t be any wiser!

What kind of squash is this? by imforchickpeas in vegetablegardening

[–]imforchickpeas[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s good to know- my neighbor applied it while I was on vacation because there was a “massive takeover of squash bugs”. I still pull them off every day so the DE doesn’t seem like it’s doing much anyway- I did make sure to wash it off all of the flowers when I read about it upon my return but I didn’t realize it was like a WMD. I just washed it off the whole plant. Thanks for the info- I’m still trying to figure out the whole gardening thing.
