After thinking more about AI making programming obsolete.
somebody sent me a photo of "advertising is the graffiti of the rich" written on a wall, and I'm honestly having trouble coming up with anything truer
It's very funny the way some people think "but you didn't mask before 2020!" is some kind of gotcha. I didn't wipe my own butt when I was a baby either, but then I learnt how. Learning new things and changing your behaviour is good, actually 🤨
Just autism things dating applications are open but it's just a blank space to infodump abt anything you want
Me: hm maybe we should move to Seattle, the minimum wage to living wage is a lot higher than here (ikr) and there seem to be a lot more queer and polyamorous ppl there
Also me: but why would we bother moving if we're still gonna be in the US?
Also me: lmao you think you're ever getting out of the US?
What's something you can say both during sex and at an open casket wake?
The fact that #Israel continues to murder innocent people and steal their homeland proves that international law is a joke.
The fact that #America continues to be okay with it shows that American politics is a joke.
The fact that #cops continue to execute innocent people every day shows that American national law is a joke.
If these people won’t even abide by the laws they’ve put forward, why in the fuck should we? Who gave them moral authority?
neurodivergent people who are not diagnosed with/do not suspect bipolar -
do you experience periods of hyperactivity you liken to mania but less detrimental? increased energy, lessened sleep, more talking, more moving, hyperfocus more often/more readily, doing more activities, buying things you had been meaning to buy etc?
Thing you can do to help #trans people if you are a hobbyist or better #photography type, make some more affirming, less stereotyped images of trans people doing normal stuff and release them CC. I'm making an explainer video, and needed a graphic of a trans woman on vacation, maybe on a beach...
The only ones in google image search are pornographic.
We need images that aren't porn and aren't overtly political.
Lockdowns were the closest we ever got to having a global revolution. People had time to think, for once.
Which is why we'll never have them again.
Anthrax, ebola, bird flu, airborne rabies... Whatever.
Nothing will be enough for them to take that risk again.
There's a reason they only ever talk about how "traumatic" the lockdowns were, but nobody talks about SARS.
every new user being shocked that DMs aren’t actually private is kinda scary because it means that everybody just assumes DMs on other platforms are private
because they aren’t. the only difference between fedi and other social media is that fedi admins don’t have a vested interest in making you think DMs are private
That said, the recent spam attacks show the need for more advanced tools for server admins and mods to share information. The call for such tools became a point of contention during the first twitter migration last year and the fediverse and mastodon missed out on the support of black users, trans users, and members of other groups targeted by bad actors due to was was perceived to be unresponsiveness and "free speech absolutism" by some of the big players.
I joined mastodon today because the CEO of #tumblr had a complete meltdown recently when people called him out for deleting a trans woman's blog because she posted a transition timeline. The vibes were definitely off, just doesn't feel like a safe place right now. I'd love to follow more #trans and #queer folks on here! This is my second social media account (third if you count myspace. omg should I go back to myspace??) so I need all the help I can get with navigating this place.
The fact that there’s nothing akin to “circles” here is a big mistake
Why can’t I make a post for mutuals only huh???
If the little elephants in the computer can figure out what the fuck “unlisted means” then I think they can figure out mutuals
"Come to the fediverse! Everyone can run their own server!" is starting to sound more and more like "everyone can grow their own food!" or "everyone can make their own clothing." Like. Some people can do these things. Not everyone has the knowledge, resources, and/or time.
this is the lock on the bathroom door in my parents’ home. the important thing is that thieves and attackers can’t gain access but you can see out
I just discovered MIT's living wage calculator. You can specify down to the county level.
Some people will talk about encampments like “if ten tents suddenly appeared in your backyard would you be okay with that????”
And like, duh, yes??! It’s my landlord and asshole neighbors like you who would be the problem lol
welcome to all the tumblr folks hopping onto fedi today, on here you can post about car hammer explosions all you want
I really can’t overstate how important it is to be conversational on this platform. The passive consumption of content is such a raw cheat of APub.
Comment on everything. Invite others to conversation. Create dialogue, discuss differences. With strangers, with creators, with news article bots - it doesn’t matter. A reply is better than a repost any day
Tumblr's moderators falsely flagged a trans woman's completely clothed and non-sexual pre- and post-transition photos as 'explicit content' and refused to rescind the ban, so she posted that she hopes the CEO "dies a painful death involving a car covered in hammers that explodes multiple times and the hammers go everywhere". The CEO of Tumblr is currently having a very public and extended meltdown about this, and is claiming that the Wile E. Coyote ass scenario of CEO Car Hammer Explosion was a "credible death threat" which required the intervention of the FBI and has banned the woman in question. He has spent the last few hours being Definitely Not Mad Online in all of the comments and replies. Truly incredible next levels of Silicon Valley Bro brain
