COVID, mh 

If I see even one more person say "oh it only affects people who are x" I swear to God.

- I happen to like some old people. My grandmother is in hospital in Daegu right now (not for corona)

- My mother has high blood pressure. She is over fifty. She cannot visit her own mother.

- I have experienced breathing problems for my entire life and cough and catch colds near constantly. I live in Hong Kong. If I caught the virus, it's likely that I would not know until I infected others.

CWs I'm trying to use:

* mh: mental health
* ph: physical health
* pol: politics, sometimes plus locale, like:
* uspol: United States politics
*ukpol: United Kingdom politics
*hkpol: Hong Kong politics
* nsfw: not safe for work (not porn, just discussion of nsfw themes)
Also: Selfies, media spoilers, food, dem primary etc

I also have a politics account at @redbulb where I post unCWed pol with a leftist angle.

Thanks to @noelle for the original list I'm adapting! Reposting so I can pin.

cw: reference to birdsite drama and transphobic ppl 

Glinner getting suspended on Twitter and fleeing to mumsnet instead of his fediverse instance is great because it means he's accepted his attempt to get on the fedi is a failure

I've setup a new Mastodon server on The idea is to provide another space for people who would've landed on but can't because it's closed.

Even though I am currently in charge of both there are still logical and infrastructural separations between the two that give this move meaning in the context of decentralization.

Not to mention I've already scaled to's size once, so it would be easier for me to do again than to scale further.

Addendum to this: do NOT (I repeat, do NOT) take legal advice from random yahoos on the Internet.

It doesnโ€™t matter if what they say seems sensible or they use legal-sounding words, you do not know them IRL and you do not know how reliable they are.

If you are planning to do something you think might expose you to legal risk, seek advice from credible organisations or (if you can afford it) an actual lawyer.

reference to politics 

Thinking about how one time my friend posted screenshots of an argument he'd gotten into on a leftist subreddit or sth and instead of actually taking sides on whatever minor disagreement it was over my response was "hey, wait a minute, isn't that @LemmyDev ?"

one day eugen will invent a mastodon where everyone i want attention from is always logged in when i want it #mastodev

It's wild how in Clue everybody is just okay with Ms. White having killed five people

Essential workers don't need cheering in the streets, they don't need fucking military tributes in the form of fucking Blue Angels flyovers, they need to be respected at the institutional level. That means pay increases, proper safety equipment and training, guaranteed time off to recover physically and mentally from the grueling nature of their work, and health care that won't bankrupt them.

Anything else is meant to keep you distracted.


I haven't been on Mastodon lately because I'm all wrapped up in the birdsite, but like, I do have a scroll occasionally

Been spending a lot of time on the birdsite lately and honestly Mastodon's advanced ui is leagues ahead of Tweetdeck's

I'm literally just streaming rina sawayama's fantastic debut album constantly.

I love her so much and what she represents to me by being a critically acclaimed queer asian pop star is impossible to overstate
