Let’s see how this goes on Mastodon, ‘cause it had no good result on the bird site.

I need to commission the creation of new logos and banners for social media and studio8502.ca. I am perfectly willing to pay a reasonable fee, but I’d like to know the amount up front.

The thing about self-described "alpha males" is that very often, while they believe they're alpha like a wolf, they're more often alpha like software: a first attempt, untested, prone to failure, and not suitable for public release.

Madison Cawthorne won't read your "haha he's in a wheelchair" joke.

Donald Trump will never see your fat joke.

Joe Biden will never hear your jokes about his stutter.

Your friends will. Your friends with mobility aids. Your friends who aren't a size 0. Your friend with a speech impediment they've worked relentlessly to overcome.

If you want to make a joke about a politician/public figure, find something worth joking about. Ableism ain't it. Weight ain't it.

Examine the engine of your humor.

Look, say what you will about trans people seeking out hormone therapy.

But I'm a cis dude and as soon as I turned 40, my entire Facebook feed became 50% testosterone ads.

Gender affirming treatment is a thing for everybody, you're only bothered when some people do it in a way you don't agree with.

If you're reading this, it's already too late. You're a cutie. No take-backsies. And no turning it around on me, either!

You can try to deny it if you want. You *do* have that right.

But you'll be wrong because...

I want transmascs to
Love my birth gender
The way I could not
Relish their masculine bodies
The way I could not mine
Masculinity was, for me, a weight
I hope it makes them soar
Maleness is a treasure
That deserves to shine
Brighter than it could with me

Racism and antiblackness on the fedi 

I'm starting to get a clearer picture as to what the fuck the problem is now and I'm getting closer and closer to the point.

The fact of the matter is that white people are often incapable of recognising antiblackness and that their ability to assess behaviours like these is tinted by white supremacy.

Their inaction is itself a form of antiblackness, as it perpetuates the unwelcoming nature of fedi as a space made by whites for whites primarily. The only solution to the problem is a radical shift towards making antiracism a priority. White people have a duty to listen to Black voices and to educate themselves on antiblackness.

Nothing short of concrete and thorough antiracist action to curb this fucking bullshit will be enough to break the cycle.

Get in or get out of the way

"waah waaah mastodon is slow and glitchy sometimes, how can you bear it"

bitch I grew up with dial up. I scrolled endlessly through the hampster dance, half the jpegs broken. I spent an hour looking for and downloading a simple mp3. I waited my 54 minutes to continue watching a ropey stream of true blood with unsynced audio. I still use tumblr. you are like tiny baby
