@Joshi I just don't care.

Anatomically I'm a woman.

I was born late in the Baby Boom (early 1960s) and commonly refer to all people as "guys."

I've been called "dude" by a Gen X woman and "mami" by a Hispanic woman. I was once introduced to someone as my brother's brother, which puzzled but did not offend me.

I've thought about using "it."

The only gender word that ever offended me was when someone called me "sir."

I've put that in my bio: Please don't call me "sir."

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

I got my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine yesterday. (NYC opened some of their sites to walk-ins for people over 50.)

Today my arm is a little sore, but I'm not as sleepy as yesterday, nor does my face feel warm and flushed. Of course those last two might be because I walked a mile and a half after the vaccine, but today I'm relaxing.

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

Boosts appreciated for sample size :)

This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.

My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.

If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️

Missed our town hall on Friday? Watch the recording to learn about the copyright laws that were snuck into the omnibus spending package at the end of last year, and the latest dangerous copyright proposal, the DCA:

Imagine that there's a popular brand of cherry bubblegum. There's nothing harmful in the formula, it's a perfectly normal candy treat, the company behaves ethically.
For some reason, you run the numbers, and this brand of gum very strongly correlates with suicide and self-harm.
There's no explanation why - the gum is not addictive or psychoactive, there's nothing in the advertising or marketing that would incite people to hurt themselves... nevertheless, the stats are clear.
What do you do?

The US administration & TC Energy are trying to push XL forward again. And they're willing to risk our drinking water, our food supply, and the sovereign rights of Tribal nations in order to do it. Please act now to help stop them via @NRDC:
