We are still a massive €254 short for the server bills for mstdn.social, misskey.ai, mastodon.coffee, pixey.org and some more free open source services
Hopefully next month I can pay most of it with a new job but that doesn't help now..
If you can, please think about supporting me in paying the bills for the various #Fediverse services I host for free❤️
If not me perhaps your own server admin
If everyone in the whole world [whose gender isn't adequately expressed or defined by the gender binary of M/F] could please take part in these test questions, it will really help a lot in the design of the 2023 Gender Census...
Just finished up a Moby Dick commission. This project was right up my alley - nerdy, detail oriented, multi step. I’m going to do a few posts for it because there’s a lot of detail. I hand bleached the fabric and used 1700s illustrations as well as descriptions from the book for reference. And it didn’t feel right to make the whale without Captain Ahab!

grump, amoral "moral panics"
I think a lot about "Parental Guidance" ratings on shows, movies, games, and social media. These warnings tend to be about "protecting" people from curse words and seeing boobs, but don't even attempt to protect people from seeing nazi-apologia, white supremacist revenge fantasies, misogyny, Islamophobia, and queerphobia
yall...just unapologetically ask for money.
Most of us will get it. Those who dont, need to learn.
Its not your fault you dont have enough money to have your basic needs met.
You are not a burden.
You didnt do anything wrong
despite what messages you may have received.
idk just, if you feel compelled to say sorry i wont stop u
just. please think about what message that sends.
we can create an environment where we dont need to apologize for needing help.
for the record "it sounds like gibberish on screen readers" applies to alt text too! even if the caps make sense in an image, screen readers often parse words in all caps as acronyms so they will read it letter by letter! so please, do not put your alt text as a paragraph of all caps!
I sometimes encounter really kind colleagues who say dismissive things about reading/learning disabilities.
Just stumbled upon this project, which shows how it feels to read when you have dyslexia:
What considerate and informative work!

I'm looking for a personal shopper in #SanFrancisco to help me, a big boobs big ass big body transmasculine person, renew my wardrobe for something that fits my body well and looks as masculine as possible. If you have any idea where to find someone like that, hit me up :)
Queer autistic couple looking for room to flee an abusive situation- can currently make it anywhere in OR or WA.
All our other options keep drying up. We can both work if we're not threatened and belittled constantly and my job options are in high demand (K-12). If you live near Salem I already have one! Otherwise we will not survive here. I have one polite ESA cat who is now very used to staying in a bedroom 24/7.
Please help. If you have off-fedi leads you can DM me for email.
