I will probably accept your follow request (and probably follow back) if:
- I know you from meatspace or elsewhere on the internets
- your profile info clearly suggests that you aren't a cis man
Also, I will probably not accept your follow request if you haven't made any toots, because I don't want to feel like I'm being surveilled.
Hello, I haven't been on here as much because surprise surprise, eventually Mastodon got more overwhelming than Twitter for me.
I totally saw/heard the cat exploring my room some more while I was drifting in and out of sleep last night
OMG the cat just poked their head into my room! And then I got excited and said "hi!" and then they ran away...
Cat update: they are eating and pooping and exploring when no one is around. Also, they actually hissed at me when I found them in one of their hiding spots, as opposed to remaining silent. Progress?
Cat continues to hide, but actually used the litterbox last night! Yay!
State of the cat: still hiding. Which is only fair, really: I basically uprooted them from the foster home in which they were only just starting to get comfy and put them in an unfamiliar place with weird new smells. Humans are assholes, indeed.
I have adopted a cat. Pictures will follow once they come out of hiding.
If any city deserves an "I am in you" joke, it's Regina.
Today, these kids saw me and were like "that guy has cool hair" and I was like THANK YOU
What a weird and wonderful month it's been.
#actuallyautistic epiphany: I don't need a medical professional to tell me I'm trans. I just know, based on years of soul searching and researching other people's experiences, and I've been taking steps (medical or otherwise) to alleviate my dysphoria as a result.
So why should I fret about not having a formal autism diagnosis, anyway?
Just heard a slow R&B cover of Stayin' Alive and all I could think of was how doing CPR to it wouldn't work quite as well.
ｃｙｂｒｅ ≠ cyber
ｃｙｂｒｅ describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
ｃｙｂｒｅ represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
ｃｙｂｒｅ belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality
also ｃｙｂｒｅ was available as a domain name
For every new software feature you want to add, think, "How would a group of persistent, tech savvy people use this feature to harass someone."
Maybe that means you decide not to implement it. Maybe that means you work on something else that would support people who get the majority of harassment.
It's always weird to encounter women with my deadname but when it's a trans woman, it makes me feel kinda happy? Like someone out there is putting this thing I had for 30 years to good use?
