OH MY GOD. #CaptainMarvel isn't even out yet and I'm already looking forward to the inevitable fanvids set to "Black Sheep" from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - the lyrics are even pretty on-the-nose....
New users, since it's come up: please remember that Mastodon is not a corporate entity like Tumblr or Twitter. The specific server mastodon.social, in fact, is owned and operated by one person, who sets the rules for the server. If you don't like the rules here (which you can find at https://mastodon.social/about/more ), there are many, many other servers on the fediverse - each run by an individual or group, some of them running their own software! - that might be more to your tastes.
Gender reveal parties will never not be weird. "How am I going to indoctrinate the baby into a gender role?? *drumroll* "
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
If you're new here, you may find this to be relevant to your interests...
INTRO TO FEDERATION:
1. "mastodon" is a piece of software that runs on a server. There's a lot of servers that run it & u can follow ppl on other servers.
2. When u follow someone from another server, your server receives their toots.
3. The federated TL is all public toots that the server receives, ie all of the toots from everyone that ppl on your server follow.
4. ERGO: if u want to see more toots in the fed TL, follow + get other ppl on your server to follow ppl from other servers!
