is anyone here trans masculine? i'm not sure if i'm autistic, but i've started binding recently, and besides the back pain, i love the pressure/tightness, i have no breathing issues, and it keeps me from having anxiety attacks. i was wondering if this was an autistic thing, cause i know deep pressure is?

Absolutely. Deep pressure/pressure stimming is very common with autistic people, and binding is one way to achieve deep pressure. In fact, outside of binding, many autistic people wear weighted vests to achieve the same type of deep pressure that causes pleasure and calm.

THE MANTLE CONNECTION: Mauna Loa and Kīlauea

Mauna Loa and Kilauea are among the most active of the volcanoes that formed the island of Hawaii. Kilauea seems to be erupting continually these days, but Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984. However, to quote Monty Python “It’s not dead, it’s resting.”

Metaconglomerate

This is a neat rock, found in the Opawiskie Mountains on the border of Poland and the Czech Republic.

The rock is metamorphic. You can clearly make out a foliation – a pattern of aligned minerals running from the left to the right. If you look closely, there are larger chunks within this rock, many of which have been rotated and are at a small angle with the foliation direction.

Those chunks are clasts, remnant of what this rock was before it was metamorphosed. This is a metamorphosed conglomerate, a sedimentary rock made of large sedimentary chunks.
