"Indestructible And Flawlessly Lacerated With Our Backs Against God"
cw: songs about trans antagonism (no lyrics)
[Read in a Cosmos-esque, Sagan voice]
Cats...have always been with us.
Small...and furry....and full of hate.
They've always been there; waiting.
Perhaps, someday, they will all rise up...
...and form their cat army; depose us all.
No. I have an itch, I need to wash.
No. I'm tired. I'm going to take a nap.
But someday, yes, it will be the time.
And cats....will put an end....to the age of man.
Also, this kinda came up, but not everyone using Masto/masto-like sites are tech savvy. Telling me to build my own instance or do _______ as someone who barely understand what it means and entails isn't useful.
Masto discourse is not accessible and some of yall are just hostile and annoying and condescending for no reason whatsoever.
If this website does not make you happy, you can change your environment. you can recognize that certain people that you thought you liked are causing you emotional stress because of how abrasive and uncaring they always seem to be, and that’s okay. You can block them, you can unfollow them, and you can find ways to make this place feel okay again. You deserve that, and the people making you unhappy on this website do not deserve your attention anymore.
Masto doesn't provide a compartmentalization option. We have CW, but that's it. We have nothing like groups or circles or channels or any other means to express anger or fear or frustration without it ending up on all your followers timelines.
Even if we did, compartmentalization of this sort can be tantamount to emotional labor. And forced positivity can be equally draining and toxic.
Are we really going to do the whole "we must keep it positive" here on masto?
Perhaps I've been around social media since LiveJournal was *new* but....all social networks go through positive and negative cycles.
Why? Life. Life can be great and exciting, and it can suck so much it'd make a vacuum vendor blush.
Masto has been a counterpoint to birdsite and book face and that made it easy to compartmentalize.
When a network becomes your primary and only, it's much much harder to do that.
While I’m venting about this, it’s awful that American culture is so heavily enmeshed with car culture, and that car industries are deliberately making less-rugged cars so they can convince people to buy new ones sooner, it is aggravating how much we have designed our cities as aggressively pro-car and anti all other forms of transportation, it’s gross that I can’t take a train because the train tracks have been allowed to degrade in favor of cars, cars are bad and I dislike them

Doesn't do ironic liking. Loves open source, loathes "meritocracy". Tinkerer. Tech is social. She/her. Minneapolis, MN. That's wench, not wrench.
