The CSS Working Group is discussing ‘logical properties’ today with the Internationalization Working Group – and there’s a great new article on the topic this week from Jeremy Keith.
After nearly 15 years as a highly-requested feature in CSS – and 15 years being told it was impossible – (size) Container Queries and units have shipped in both Chrome/Edge 105, and Safari 16! Firefox is not far behind.
I really enjoyed Dave Rupert’s Modern alternatives to BEM, which concludes with a link to my redesign. So let’s talk about my seven-layer burrito of styles – what he calls SBRDFLT. What’s that all about?
Continuing the slow redesign process,
I spent a weekend
on the Titanic .
I want to re-think the front-end of my site, without too much change to the (Eleventy/Markdown) content that drives it. And I want to do it slowly.
Erin and I spent a couple days last week at the Colorado Shoe School in Bellvue, CO – learning, designing, and making our own sneakers. Yes, actual sneakers, fit for wearing, and built from scratch. Only the soles come pre-formed out of recycled plastic.
All browsers add an
body element –
it’s part of the w3c-recommended
which browsers generally use
as a starting point
for their own ‘user agent’ styles.
Where does that come from?
Working on Sass
support for color spaces,
I ran into a question
about the proper handling of
That lead me down a rabbit hole,
exploring the edges of hwb
(and powerless color channels) in CSS.
This post has been written and published, and filed away for safe keeping as an event that happened in my past. This post is also a live performance, and an invitation to engage. Thanks for dropping by.
In CSS, there are compound selectors and also complex selectors, and I never remember which is which. Do you need to learn the difference? Probably not. But I’m tired of looking it up.
The other day, I posted an article about implementing webmentions on this site. Today, I’m battling an endless stream of spam in my mentions.
Reflections on making theater, and my family reacting to it.
Media-queries allow an author to make style changes based on the overall viewport dimensions – but in many cases, authors would prefer styling modular components based on their context within a layout.
As I spend more of my time working on the CSS language, I wanted a place to take notes and explore new ideas in the open.
Why waste your time on half-measures? Make your site THE MOST NORMALEST with this ULTIMATE CSS RESET.
In the CSS naming-convention arms race to lowest specificity,
I’ve decided to only use universal
I call it F*CSS.

The Journal of Mennonite Writing asked me to submit for their queer issue. I don’t identify as Mennonite, but I did grow up in the church, so I asked my friends what to write about. They suggested the common question: In a world without rigid gender roles, would anyone need to be trans?
Yesterday, I shared an article about my impending surgery, and a request for help – both social and financial – as I go through this. I was embarrassed to ask, and not sure what to expect, but your response has been swift and overwhelming. I can’t thank you enough, but I’ll keep trying.
Denver Health has started offering vaginoplasty in addition to their other trans medical services. While I’ve been on the waitlist for various surgeons around the country, Denver Health called me this week to give me a date: September 10, less than two months away.
An LGBT concert of writers and composers by the Playground Ensemble, with three works by LGBT authors and the composers.
I used excerpts from Body & Gender Fragments to talk about the contradictions of transition – a sort of “crossing over” without going anywhere.
At the family vacation in Moab, everyone is doing their best. It’s not enough, and my day is peppered with the wrong name and pronouns. I hide in my room through dinner so they won’t see me crying.
I wasn’t born in the wrong body. I was born, a body. Without my body, I don’t exist.

I’m still reeling from this year of insults, a traumatizing campaign turned traumatic election. I’m not sad about a contest lost, but what those results mean for real people around me. 2016 is over, but 2017 is going to be even harder.
There’s a lot of language that gets thrown around, but much of it comes loaded with over-simplified baggage and misconceptions. Here are a few that have been on my mind – from gender identity to biological sex, transition, passing, and visibility.
It’s been a month since our country pseudo-elected a bigoted blow-hard for president. I’m heading to DC to protest his inauguration in January, visit friends, and go on a mixed-media resistance tour…

There are some questions that come up again and again if you are trans. A few of those questions are terrible, but most of them are well-intentioned. I’m lucky to have a supportive community around me, so I thought I’d write down my most common answers to help ease your stress about getting it right, and ease my stress about answering the same questions over and over.
