I had to juggle things around a bit and some diaries don't easily fit into any of the categories - and of course a tagging system would allow a diary to appear under more than one heading.  But the purpose is to make it easier to find a diary and link to it and I wanted to keep things simple.  

Going through the list was an interesting retrospective on what themes have developed and how my thoughts and writing style have evolved.  I suspect that if you went through your back-catalogue you would find a few more interesting themes and sub themes and perhaps also a development of your views on certain topics.

You were, of course, always right at the time you stated those views!

I once commented to the speaker at a paramedical seminar that TLC, tender loving care, means thin layer chromatography to a biochemist. I suspect he thought just what you wrote above, but didn't say it.

You're clearly a dangerous pinko commie pragmatist.

I am reminded of an article by Isaac Asimov which started with a joke on how to spot a[n english-speaking] Chemist. I believe there were three tests of which I remember two. The first one is to read unionize aloud. The Chemist will syllabicize it as un-ion-ize rather than union-ize.

The second test is to define mole which to a Chemist is not a blind furry burrowing animal, but Avogadro's number of particles.

You forget some people in the trans community talk about the cisgendered as well, so that was not off-topic.
