Hi. I was @mikeburns because I wanted to try Mastodon and it was the only server.
I have been informed that there are more servers now.
#introductions #web #freeSoftware #accessibility #polyam #queeringTech #anarchy #goth #industrial #cyberpunk #plants #zines #openbsd #nyc #stockholm #boston #hiking #winterCamping #carepunk #infosec #ethicsInTech #consent #glitter
we need #carepunk more than ever at this point
being good to people needs to become seen for what it is: rebellion against a system built to reward assholes as much as possible
seriousness, introduction to race for white americans, birdsite link
I also keep a running list titled "perspectives" for all the things I am not. Here's a race-related selection:
seriousness, introduction to race for white americans
If you grew up white in America, here are two things I've used to learn more history:
- _The New Jim Crow_ by Michelle Alexander
- Seeing White, a 13-part podcast: http://podcast.cdsporch.org/episode-31-turning-the-lens-seeing-white-part-1/
If you have the energy and ability, try to be thorough: if you see a toot that does not belong on the fediverse, follow through to the account's profile. If they have followers, follow through each follower's profile first. They will likely have similar content and can be reported. Then return to the original account and report it.
This is for reporting. Whether you are this thorough for muting or blocking is up to you. (I don't, but my threat model differs from yours.)
Friendly reminder, report the shit you see! The moderators can't catch everything on the server, but I'll be damned if they can't deal with the reports that do come in.
This isn't birdsite, if it doesn't fit with the rules and guidelines it will be dealt with. If the rules and guidelines are missing something let us know.
Thank you <3
