really wanna spoon someone and have their tail between my legs

How do I get a link to a Mastodon post to open in Tusky? I can get Firefox to compose a new post with a link to the original post, but there's no "open this in the app" button like for a wikipedia page

Shifting over here from @embolalia to have an actually somewhat interesting local timeline.

Thinking about trans individuals of species with very noticeable dimorphism;

a trans doe who is very proud of her antlers and decorates them every day
a trans kangaroo guy who uses his pouch as a pocket
a trans peahen who shows off her tailfeathers
a trans bull who is perfectly happy with his lack of horns, because he tried prosthetics and they just kept getting in the way

Uptown girl
She's been living in a
For ninety years now she's been
On that ride
All the other passengers
Have died
She's still inside

Whoa o-o-Oh-o-Oh-o

Vam-pir-ic hunger grows
For more centri-
fugic souls for my

Uptown girl
She's my uptown gi-i-irl
(Supplying victims to my)
Uptown girl
(Ancient carnivalan)
Uptown girl
(Torquing blood out for my)

Linux, codes of conduct (-) 

While we're talking FOSS cultural patterns, one we should work to stamp out forever is "It's hard to use, which I like because it keeps people out". That attitude is born partly of Linus' mentality all these years and it has to go. The leftist imperative for free software is that *nobody* deserves to have their computing experience controlled by corporations.

Foxes are cat software on dog hardware. Which I guess makes me cat software running in a dog vm on a human host machine?

Opinions that are my own and do not reflect those of my employer 

I'm about to give a candidate the first 45 minutes of what will be SIX STRAIGHT HOURS of interviews. This obviously would disadvantage a candidate who is physically disabled or aneurotypical. I don't feel like I can say that, though, because the last time I spoke up about the company doing shit that disadvantaged those groups, I was told if I did it again I'd be fired.

A site for dog pics called HoundCloud.
Or maybe PoundCloud? But that sounds like it'd be for porn.
Maybe a bondage site called BoundCloud?

There's a counter in Union Square that shows a live update of how many genders there are

Thing I just learned the hard way:
If you're going to dump the last bits of a bag of salt and vinegar chips into your mouth
Close your eyes.

TIL that there's a dialect of ASL used by Black Deaf people, which grew out of racially segregated Deaf schooling. And that it carries the same stigmatization among Deaf people (the racist ones, anyway) that AAVE does among English speakers.

trans formative experiences (+) 

early transition is kind of like spending an entire year at the optometrist

"1 or 2?" "heck i can't tell, it all still looks like a bunch of squiggles"

"1 or 2?" "agh 2 2 2, 1 is worse than no lenses and it's already giving me a headache"

"1 or 2?" "uhhhh 1 i guess?"

"1 or 2?" "2 ... wait hang on, i can see all the way down the hallway now, cool!"

trans formative experiences (-) 

i've been lucky; i skipped the parts where:

- your first optometrist shrugs and says you probably just have a glasses fetish

- your second optometrist says you don't need glasses because you could see well enough to drive here (you took the bus) and you should try to be a better ally to folks with actual vision problems

- your partner says they could never be attracted to a glasses-wearing version of you & packs their bags
