Howdy, new Mastodonians!
voter ID Show more
If someone insists that voter IDs are a good thing and that the address on the ID should match a voter's home address, ask them to explain, specifically, why the homeless shouldn't be allowed to vote. Make them say it.
feel free to boost up my damn posts about what matilde has been putting people through, if you like believe me and the other people whove spoken out,
Not gonna lie, most of us have a very hard time with the fediverse cuz she attached herself to the mastodon project when it was new

important thread on a serial abuser that's been prominent in the fediverse for a while now and what she's done. when you have more than 5 survivors speaking out and you associate with a nazi, there might be a need for a call-out like this i think:

Apparently at least one major government had an insider working undercover at Twitter:
It doesn't really matter if Twitter is trustworthy or not, simply having a vast amount of personal data in one place is going to attract spies from all sorts of organisations that wish to misuse it.

"If I’m going to enjoy the absurd capitalist soma of video games, the last thing I want to do is feel like I’m being badgered by a superior at a dead-end job."
Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.
There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.

Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.
Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
