If someone has a History Of Being Shitty, just because they are notionally "one of my people" doesn't mean I have to welcome them or accept people in my communities welcoming them. And I'm not tagging this with meta because this goes beyond recent events on this network, it's something that I see all the time and I will not fucking stand for it.
So after everything that's happened over the last week, here's a boundary that I shouldn't *have* to make explicit that I'll be pinning to my profile now because of abusive figures with clout in this network:
If you think that someone's marginalization excuses them from criticism, especially if they are acting in a way that marginalizes others, stay far the fuck away from me.
Just a reminder that tech companies move heaven and earth to keep children from seeing boobs, but pretend like deplatforming queerphobes, supremacists, and literal nazis is an unassailable technical challenge.
At one point the internet was literally mostly porn, and it's still way harder to filter porn than fash stuff. The decision to let fascism proliferate on the internet was an intentional decision, for god's sake quit giving the techbros who made these decisions ANY benefit of the doubt. Look at the ugly ugly truth, stare it in the face, it's good for healing from gaslighting. The internet doesn't suck, techbros suck.
I'd like to bring to your attention the work of @ArtistMarciaX –an independent, trailblazing Afro-Indigenous Puerto Rican artist (& the founder of #fineFemmeFriday !) who could really use your support to break through the glass ceiling of bureacracy & forge ahead w/their ongoing education & career development!
Replaced the OEM Windows case badge on my laptop with a "Powered by Ubuntu" badge and covered the Windows logo on the super key/WinKey with a Tux sticker (I ain't no fossbro but a cute penguin on my keyboard beats a logo for an OS that the keyboard isn't used with!)

Promoting a friend-in-need's indie game
Arguing that admins should not block any instances because "this choice should be left to the users" merely leads to the platform being unusable for anyone not able to stomach the vile filth the literal nazis spew, along with anyone who can't put in the constant effort to personally block every bad instance, as they are (very rapidly) created by bad actors.
If you disagree, fucking fight me.
Since my notifications have been totally destroyed, I figure now's a good time as any to remind people I'm selling some old sonas/OCs
Honestly I'll take nearly any price at this point
I've decided to offer myself up as a voice coach for trans people who need it free/cheap.
No matter what you desire to work towards, you come to me as a friend I would like to help be comfy. Whether that be feminising, masculinising, or a voice made of various different elements :)
We will do exercises, talk about posture, be hydrated, apply it to real life, and I promise to tailor things to meet your needs.
I will do this over discord. DM me if you fancy this.
