For those new to me, allow me to myself!

I'm a 49yr old dude, in the Lebowski line of dudes, who likes to live stream in the Twitch "Just Chatting" section. I focus on kindness, mental health, good discussions, eating out, going on local adventures, and every Sunday my girlfriend and I do a cooking stream!

Aside from that, I've got a blog that's about all sorts of things like photography, mental health, my life, and THE FEDIVERSE!

Links are in profile.

And Hi!

When challenging someone's perspective stop and ask yourself these questions...

1) What do I understand about the others perspective?
2) What do I understand about my own perspective?
3) Could I be wrong?
4) What do I want the other to understand about my perspective?
5) What do I want the other to understand about their own perspective?

If you find yourself skipping the first three, you're not really trying to have a discussion and may want to check your ego.

It might hurt his feelings.

Jo Jo Rabbit is a great movie. Go see it. If you don't love it, you're probably a Nazi.

@Mrfunkedude that’s why I think the term lesbian exists; lesbian is in theory gay+female; however some nonbinary people use the term gay to describe themselves; others use lesbian so the definitions aren’t as clear cut as one initially thinks

@Mrfunkedude I don’t think there is one because male is thought of as the default gender and any gender that’s not male is perceived as other by society

I looked on the GLADD media reference page and couldn't find one. I'm wondering if there's ever been one and if not, why? It would be a fascinating history lesson.

Ok I've got a weird question that I would love some help on. ( I like Etymology )

"Gay" is a gender non specific terminology.

"Lesbian" is a gender specific terminology for a gay woman.

What is the gender specific terminology for a gay man?

Today’s live stream will be delayed. I bet you can’t guess why!

Probably a good time to mention that if you enjoy using mastodon.social you can support it through Patreon:

patreon.com/mastodon

Or through OpenCollective:

And of course if you're on a different server you can check if your admin also has a Patreon and support them

Hey @streamlabs@twitter.activitypub.actor why are you forcing people to buy a package of things they may not want or need in order to get a watermark removed? Why not just sell everything individually and if they actually WANT to use all of the services, guide them to PRIME?

@dansup Just posted a pic using the Compose UI v4 and it didn't post my comment on mobile but it does on desktop.

Omg this Chinese soup was so good! The broth was AMAZING. This is my new favorite soup place.
