Pinned toot

An for all the new folks!

Hi, I'm Fen! I'm a web developer and professional who's really into making zines and indie LARPs.

Check out my code and talks at fenslattery.com

My zines and games are available at sublimemarch.itch.io

I post about:
πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ trans and queer issues
πŸ’» programming (mostly HTML and CSS)
πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’» radical inclusion in the tech industry
β™Ώ digital accessibility and invisible illness
🧠 mental illness
:computerfairies: weird internet junk

This is absolutely beautiful

I created a reverse blackout poetry thing (it writes random poetry first, then some Markov filler text, then the surrounding text gets blacked out). See the results in @abue_io@twitter.com's "sync" zine: sync.abue.io/issues/190712kp_s

- being soft on Nazis and TERFs on this platform
- banning/suspending trans people for pointing out when another user is a TERF, as though TERF were a slur

So yeah, I guess it's back over to Mastodon for me for a while, Twitter is a hellsite.

More than anything, fuck Twitter for:
- making it pretty much impossible to hide hateful tweets that people I follow are responding to, and instead showing them like any other tweet in my timeline
- not implementing a content warning feature like Mastodon has

I know Twitter has a small enough character limit that adding content warnings is frustrating, but if you're a person sharing/retweeting shit that's straight up hurtful and upsetting, consider adding a cw?

Even reading nice posts about "women in tech" stuff sends me off into a spiral of reading the replies and engaging in digital self harm by looking for all the stuff people who hate trans people are saying.

mental health, digital self harm 

Instead of buying stuff from Amazon today for , don't break the digital picket line and buy my one-page RPG based on an actual tweet Amazon sent.

Boycot Amazon today and instead look at my spouse's wonderful 200 word RPG about how Amazon is bad

ANTological Theory is one of my favorite RPGs, and not just because my wife wrote it. I love taking it out whenever friends are around and looking for a game, and I'm so excited to share this actual play!

RT @AdiraSlattery@twitter.com

Hey, a game I wrote is on a podcast!!!!! In ANTological Theory, you play ants and argue about the nature of the world. No knowledge of ants or philosphy required!! Listen to it here with me, @OneShotRPG@twitter.com, @ArneParrott@twitter.com, @melerella@twitter.com, and Tina Arfee! oneshotpodcast.com/one-shot/31

In our house we take today to appreciate the most important result of the signing declaration of independence: the existence of the award-winning Broadway musical 1776.

Happy pride, here's a LARP about playing robot girlfriends. I love love love this game by Adira so much.

Hey @cta@twitter.com what's going on with the yellow line? All the road crossings are shut down in Skokie and I can't find any info anywhere.

This game is AMAZING and HILARIOUS.

I wrote a game about my experience fighting with birds while working as an Aquatic Maintenance Specialist at a beautiful botanic garden for NOTE: Please don't fight actual birds. You will lose. adira.itch.io/bird-fight-simul

A wonderful thread about handling q&a at conferences, check it out!

RT @tuckeve@twitter.com

I was just asked by a colleague how I facilitate Q & A sessionsβ€”I guess the word is out that I am very deliberate about how an academic Q & A should go after a talk or panel. I think of this as an Indigenous feminist approach to facilitating academic Q & A. 1/

I've played (almost) all these games and can confirm that Adira's stuff is great! ANTological Theory is one of my favorite RPGs in general, hands down. 🐜🐜🐜🐜

After leaving Detroit early due to Nazis, a scary cardiology appointment, getting a heart rate monitor stuck on me for a week, and some stressful direct transphobia, I deserve a goddamn medal for making it through this week. So I'm taking tomorrow off.

An excellent thread that illustrates how straw bans hurt folks

RT @EhlersDanlosgrl@twitter.com

I was declined a straw at a restaurant this morning. The waitress had one in her apron. As she poured the water I said β€œexcuse me miss can I have a straw?” She said β€œwe can’t just give them out” and walked away.

Bumping this for the weekday crowd. If you're cis and you liked this tweet but didn't add your pronouns, what are you doing?

RT @sublimemarch@twitter.com

Hey cis folks, did you know that one way we check to see if you're safe or an ally is to see if you have your pronouns in your Twitter profile?
