Total subtoot of a discussion I'm not in:

All books are political.

All writing is political.

All authors are political.

If you only read "non-political books," it's because the politics in those books mesh with yours.

something I've kind of gradually learned from quiet conversations over the years is that there are a LOT of people out there who are in some sense trans, but who will never talk about it openly and never transition because it doesn't feel possible to them

i miss interacting irl with other trans folks and having a good time

software minimalists be like "boy computers were so much better when everyone was just able-bodied, sighted, and just spoke english"

I think I probably need an account on an actually-interesting instance. Mastodon basically sucks, and I wouldn't call this place a "community" as such.

this is gargron's response to my criticism for intentionally removing local and federated timelines from the mobile app

he used the mastodon account to hide behind and delete @avie 's comment and close all further discussion on it


annoyance at cis people 

"allies" who make lists of separate types of people that inspire them like "women, trans, non-binary"

the use of "not now" as a general text field for buttons that used to say "cancel" or "dismiss" is some serious psychological warfare

the boids are lerping! is a thing you can say while coding and i don't think anytime else? but if there is i need to know for sure.

hm, misgendering someone is surprisingly similar to physically walking into someone

if you do it accidentally, you apologize, feel a bit awkward for a second, correct yourself and move on

if you do it repeatedly, forcefully, on purpose, you're being a violent asshole

idk if you're a queer person profiting off harry potter merch and branding in 2021 you should probably just get in the bin

on the streets of britain you often see these Toilet Detector Vans which can find people who haven't paid their Toilet License and are therefore using the Toilet illegally

#freenode is now going full hostile, automating channel takeovers when you're moving your community elsewhere.

⚠️ Move now, link to a blogpost on your site, obfuscate keywords like 'moving' and the network you're going to in the topic, that's how fucked this is now

I know few people on here actually use IRC but if you're still on Freenode, its time to leave. Our channel we've been running on and off for years now just got snatched because we had "Moving to" in the topic. We've all been deoped and devoiced in the channel. It's a massive abuse of power.

i'm here on the timeline of mastodon dot social, a federated, decentralized social media platform
