i wonder how the hell i am going to explain the fediverse to them

@aschmitz i really hope so too. i haven't started yet, but i'm working with this group of therapists to find one that i would get along with. should get a phone call tomorrow or monday

@KitRedgrave Oh that's a cool way to do it, and helps work around one of the more common concerns. Best of luck, even if it doesn't work out the first time or so.

@KitRedgrave I explained it to someone that it was like running twitter but for your friends and family.... and all the twitters can talk to each other like phones can talk across phone providers :’)

@KitRedgrave i gave mine the overview containing exactly what she needs to know:
• it's a chat system with a lot of queer and specifically trans people on it
• many of whom i want to sleep with
• few of whom live anywhere near me 😭

abuse mention, meta 

@VyrCossont also i vaguely feel like i'm hurting people being on it, because every so often news comes out that somebody sexually abused someone else and i have no idea what the fuck

abuse mention, meta 

@KitRedgrave uhhh unless you were doing the abusing, that's not on you

abuse mention, meta 

@VyrCossont it still gets to me though, like i might be complicit by still talking to people who did a bad thing. idk

abuse mention, meta 

@KitRedgrave ugh yeah cancellation culture is pretty fucking stressful. can we like. not give each other shit for not knowing the history and interactions of every person on here?
