"What is it about literature that makes people fearful?"
~ Rudolfo Anaya (1937-2020) commenting on his book "Bless Me, Ultima" being banned/censored

I want something for emo rap and pop punk what riot grrrl was for punk. Artists that are aware of the blatant misogyny of those genres deciding to burn that shit down while playing some rad tunes. Is this too much to ask for?

Hey, I don't post here much because I am dumb luddite, also because I definitely am still somewhat uncomfortable posting online. But I just wanted to share a track I just made, that I am very proud of. It takes heavy inspiration from the minimalism of György Ligeti as well as the bleak outlook of horror writer Thomas Ligotti. Let me know what y'all think.

art is work. art is labor.

labor is entitled to compensation.

pay your artists. pay them well. tip them.

if you can't pay your artists, don't commission art.

same logic applies as if you were hiring a contractor. you can't just go oops i don't have the cash when the work is done and it's time to settle the bill.

just because it's art doesn't mean it's less valuable or deserving.

If you are a web developer and you implement a captcha on a site I will personally come to your house with shears and cut every USB or display cable you own in half.

🌈💓🧿Hey y’all! I’m an afrolatinx jewish & chronically ill/disabled trans artist running a small resin business. It’s going well so far & will ideally enable me to not need to regularly crowdfund for emergencies AND donate to community members in need. However I need an online shop & the service I like is $200yr. I am hoping to raise funds & ideally make this my last personal fundraiser! Plz donate if u can💓:

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:

1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.

2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.

3. Use camel case in your hashtags.

animorphs is available for free and ka applegate is a trans-supportive parent, so there's no excuse for letting your kids read harry potter

How would you feel if @google knew whether you're having unprotected sex, when you pass by your favourite stores or your level of fitness?

Yeah, we didn't think so. Ask @EU_Commission to put a stop to Google's data greediness.
