Evaristo:

"Because older women are hardly ever written about in fiction, let alone older black women, even when the writers are older women. It’s like we are fixated with youth, yet in my opinion older women are so interesting. Have lived long lives. Have so much to say and to offer."

Friends, this place won't be a replacement for twitter unless you all get down to some committed shitposting. There's enough serious conversations, but there needs to be some rubbish also.

I hope people like ravish and anurag kashyap who quit twitter because of the hate and abuse consider joining here.

Mastodon is what you need on days like tomorrow. If it's an echo chamber, so be it. I'd like to hear echoes of compassion, solidarity and empathy after the ayodhya verdict. Not hate and communal chest-thumping. Just because we can't hear it here, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. And we're all aware enough to know this. Lots of love, all.
