💻 programming (mostly HTML and CSS)
👩🏾‍💻 radical inclusion in the tech industry
♿ digital accessibility and invisible illness
🧠 mental illness
:d10: indie tabletops and LARPs

There's a culture of negativity forming on the fediverse, similar to other platforms. The instinct is to call attention to it and critique it, but that itself is just creating more negativity

I think a better tactic is to make a conscious effort to create and spread more positive content, even simple stuff like the plants you're growing or the meal you're having

You know what's hardcore? Challenging white supremacy. You know what's punk? Pushing back against capitalism. You know what's edgy? Helping the oppressed overthrow their oppressors.
