Pinned toot

Hello, visitor. I'm Matthew, graduate student and professor of French literature in the midwest. The following topics are important elements of my leisure domain that will appear in toots:
• Open source software
• LGBT+ rights
• Feminism
• Racial equality
• US and International politics
• Typography
• My Instant Pot

So, what did I miss? Seems there was a kerfuffle about Gab and Nazis or something?
