Pinned toot

I've wanted to quit for years now, but always struggle making that decision. Why? Because family and friends use it like a drug and I don't want to accidentally cut people off.

It is arguably one of the easiest ways to get certain things to loved ones. But it is also a disaster of a product.

Anyone got any good solutions to offer that I could toss out to people as olive branches before leaving Facebook? They don't have to be social networks.

#PrideMonth isn't about being proud of our sexuality or gender. It's about being proud of surviving & continuing to fight against the oppression we've faced our entire lives -- oppression we continue to face every day.

Meanwhile, #StraightPride is a deliberate attempt to change the narrative, to discount all our hard work, all our fighting and sacrifice, & reframe it into the "pride in our sexuality/gender" shit.

#Pride will never be for the ruling class. It will always be for the oppressed.

Having pronouns in your bio is important to normalise the practise, not just gor trans people but everybody. If only trans people do it, then it becomes a marker of who is trans, if you all do it then it's just a standard thing. I know it can be annoying to be asked over and over yo do it, but it is important

i'm looking for an open-source, cross-platform writing app with a nice UX/UI that syncs via dropbox or something like it and preferably works with markdown.

i own a copy of Scrivener which is great for novels. i also use Bear Writer and Boostnote for various things (can't wait for Bear web version, tbh), but neither of those lend themselves to organizing essays and short fiction.

what are you all using? boosts welcome thx.

If God stubbed his toe on the corner of the couch, would he exclaim, "ME DAMN IT?"

Are there a lot of couches in hell?

Probably one of the biggest mistakes we can make in life is to only listen to a certain subset of voices. And then, assume those voices are always right.

Don't bubble yourself into a corner of thought. Don't put people into a bubble of honesty which can't be popped, even by mistake.

I've been a lot lately. How much? I'm about to sink 20 hours into it. I've got 7 more chapters to knock out, and then I can read this little book and see if I still like it. ๐Ÿ™„

For the love of the game!!!!! Er, writing!!!!

"Yeah, my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'.
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'.
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
Handful of senators don't pass legislation.
And marches alone can't bring integration.
When human respect is disintegratin'.
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'.

And you tell me
Over and over and over again, my friend,
Ah, you don't believe
We're on the eve
Of destruction."

Be good to people you don't know or you don't like.
