Forenoon is a good word.
I've personally imported it into English from the danish word "formiddag" (lit.: before mid day).
It's the time period between morning and noon, where morning is until 8 or 9 depending on your circadian rhythm and other context.
Noon is 12:00, before is forenoon, after is afternoon.
On gender as a spectrum
The point of "gender is a spectrum" was never that one's gender can sit somewhere between male and female (but sure, that's an option), and neither does it say anything about how many poles or dimensions gender have.
The point was, is, and always will be that gender is continuous. Gender is not a finite set. Gender is infinite. Gender is not countable.
When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.
1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.
2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.
3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.
I logged in to Minecraft. You win this time, nameless voters!!

Six of you said to dig tunnels in Minecraft.
Unfortunately, I don't feel like doing that right now, so let me refrase the question.
You have five new minutes. The time starts... NOW
@e8johan Why is imposter syndrome shaped like a death star?
Was the death star an imposter? Did it think it was supposed to be a moon, yet knew it wasn't?
extremely cool dungeon making tool:
Yes, this is both a sincere frustration and a joke. It can be both.

Whenever people talk about liberals and "the right" as two different things, I mentally shake my head.
Liberals have always had more* in common with conservatives and other right wing movements; liberals are only "leftist" when socialists aren't allowed in the room.
(*compared to actual left wing movements; e.g. social democrats, unions, communists, etc.)
(Also: what are your top priority items? I'm coming to this because I want to implement out-of-band tags, but I'm sure there are important anti-harassment measures that have gone unimplemented, for instance, that could be improved.)
