Blind people use phones.
Deaf people enjoy music.
(Some) users walk.
This is not opinion.
This is fact.
This is why matters; it enables us to do things you take for granted every day.
I won't stop walking because you say so; I stop when the pain is too much.

I know that Unicode/emoji/ASCII art is painful for screen reader listeners. I wonder if there's a mode to filter out uncommon glyphs and just listen to whatever text is in a post?

Apologies to my friends who use screen readers for all the Unicode. Alt=Face peeking around a brick wall, saying, "psst! hey kid! The stock market isn’t “the economy” and it’s going up because your wages never do"

Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.

Elegant little "add item" mini-modal. A button and an input: the button's + sign rotates 45° to become the X to close the modal, and 3 new button options slide up into view, replacing the input. Clicking the X-button reverts to an empty input. How to make this accessible?

Then there was a loud rushing sound, and a cartoonish landscape, and I slowly got control of my limbs again. So odd a sensation, no wonder people feel like it's supernatural.

I had sleep paralysis this morning as I woke. Very strange and vivid, more like hallucination than a dream. Slight fear and paranoia, and I couldn't move my arms at all. I tried to tell Megan, but I couldn't talk. In a dream, she told me, "You know what to do, just pin it." (?)…

Makes sense that some Americans support Donald Trump. You can't spell culture without "cult".

The ills of gatekeeping aside, this is wrongheaded in multiple ways:
* Many Star Wars fans have done none of these things
* This list is about consumption, not creation
* It fails to mention cosplay or conventions
* I've done most of these things, and I'm not a "Star Wars fan"

QOTD: If you're not sure if it's "Happy Impeachment" or "Merry Impeachment," you can always go with the non-denominational "Treason's Greetings." Lee Presson

Centrist (noun): someone who knows what the right thing to do is, and has an opportunity to act, but actively refuses to do so for personal political gain (or fear of personal political loss), and who blames their inaction on others. See @TulsiGabbard@twitter.activitypub.actor.

I'm outraged! Wakanda has been removed as a free-trade agreement partner by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This is blatant racism.
