hei mastodon. I'm case, and I write for a living. But that's less and less of my identity.

I'm and by way of . I have a and play like and . Interests include , , , , , and so on and so forth.

My are ze and hir, but they and them are pretty okay too.

If you have a problem with another user, please report them and explain the problem instead of encouraging other users to dogpile them. This isn't Tumblr or Twitter; there are actual moderators here who will try to handle disputes.

Content Warnings are not for "offensive content" (although offensive content should be under a CW)

they are for people to consent to the consent to reading/interacting with more Serious or Harmful topics

it's not self-censorship. it's providing the subject matter to folks before they engage with the content so they can choose to interact or disengage based on their well-being and other things

lefty politics 

lefties who say the "working class" can't tolerate anti-racism or understand trans issues are telling on their own biases and they need to update their concept of the working class. It isn't all conservative white men. A plurality of the working class isn't even white, and there's trans workers too.

Now that I've made my way through the Infinite Dick Parade that was the reports queue this morning:

You MUST use the sensitive-image overlay if you post an NSFW image to the public timelines.

You are not required to do so, but PLEASE tag the image in some other way to let people know what the content of the sensitive image is.

Also, PLEASE use a CW (just "NSFW" is fine) if you're going to use graphic terms to describe the image.

(Hashtags in the CW text don't work. Hashtags UNDER a CW do.)

love that linux blogs are now telling you up front if some cool new app is electron so i don't waste my fucking time

> i can't wait until "Free speech" isn't a dog whistle

Me too, I hate that it has become one. I think the people using it as one have forgotten that self censorship used to be called good manors and it was actually a decent thing to be respectful of others and show decorum.

> Mastodon is a free speech platform but people here aren't assholes

This is exactly my experience, aside from a few outliers, the majority have been amazing people and it has been incredible to bathe myself in such a vast spectrum of experiences.
🎺 🎺 This is an important PSA, if you're having trouble this Christmas season in telling if a toy is for boys or girls simply follow this simple guide:

If you operate the toy with your genitalia then the toy is not for children, otherwise it's for either girls or boys.

yall, @noelle is a main moderator on mastodon.social. she does an incredible amount of work, and they just got 20k new users in the last 24 hours b/c of the tumblr exodus. consider tossing a few $ at her if you can: elekk.xyz/@noelle/998154353638

Only open if you're gay 

You look super gay today 👌

As a note to our new tumblr friends, the fediverse is a primarily volunteer-run thing with the admins paying for all the server costs out of their own pockets

If you'd like to chip in towards keeping the fediverse running then most admins have patreon or kofi links somewhere that you can throw a couple of bucks at from time to time

reminder to new users: 

be gay, do crimes, fuck capitalism

#introductions

Hey, I'm Yvonne and I have no idea how anything works here. 😅 Been interested in Mastodon for some time (though the tumblr-pocalypse brought me to this instance) and I really love Solarpunk ideals

28 y.o, Black, bi, designer/developer, also into upcycling, crafting, sewing, DIY, permaculture, anime and animation, tech, music, and more that I can't think of right now.

Since #introductions are all going on, I might as well throw mine in.

Hi! I'm Sean. I've been a part of the federated social web for a pretty long time, and used to be the Community Manager at #Diaspora. I'm actually pretty obsessed with the space, and spend a lot of my spare time studying it and writing about it on my bespoke publication, We Distribute.

I've been using GNU/Linux since I was 12, play four instruments, love to sing karaoke, and aspire to be a writer / game designer / astronaut.

Attn newcomers: If this meme makes sense to you, you and I are gonna get along just fine
