Pinned toot

I'm Shubham. A soon to be 32 year old trans*, queer feminist from Delhi, India. I'm new to Mastodon and I haven't used Twitter very actively in the past. I was looking for a safe queer and feminist friendly instance to join and found eldritch.cafe. Unfortunately I don't speak or read French, but I can always google translate. Looking forward to a great time ahead...

You should never let go of the idea of a better and fairer world, even if it exists only in your mind.

The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2019 and the Surrogacy Regulation Bill, 2019 reinforce the idea of family as a patriarchal, heterosexual and casteist institution and fail to account for other models of "chosen families'"and intimacies that co-exist in India. bit.ly/2rEhRUB

@Memeghnad Do you think that in India anti - authoritarian stems from our collective hatred towards the so called elders in family and society who think they know everything?

No. Wait. I didn't sign up for this reality. Can I exchange it for the other one?

yeah, I'm genderfuid. sometimes I wanna awoo... but other times I want to nyaa

To devise a repeating reminder for the brain, to periodically remind oneself to "Love yourself!" instead of seeking that love from everyone else as some form of validation of one's existence...

I'm bisexual which means I'm attracted to both genders: soft gays and squishy gays

Baggage 

Remember, we are a feminist and LGBTI-oriented instance. We don't condone sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist, casteist behaviors, as well as any kind of discriminatory practices and hate speech.
We allow nudity and pornography but it must me marked as sensitive and not be posted on public timelines.
More generally, note that if you don't like "SJW", "feminazis", antifascists, etc., it might save you some time to go somewhere else.

People don't understand it till you raise your voice and make a noise.

@aura @vimoh I am not. I respectfully disagree and have seen enough people diss 'anonymous' profiles when they are slighted even the least bit, say in a losing argument. It is even considered as a prerequisite to put across an inconvenient view. Maybe you aren't that person, but the nuance is missed each time. And it affects a kid somewhere for being called an anonymous nobody etc while she's trying to be somebody somewhere, albeit anonymous. Appreciate your understanding.

“There is no such thing as a safe space. We exist in the real world and we all carry scars and have caused wounds. This space seeks to turn down the volume of the world outside and amplify the voices that have to fight to be heard elsewhere. This space will not be perfect. It will not always be what we wish it to be, but it will be ours together and we will work on it side by side.”

Existential 

"Satan loves you, and so do I, honey" this is my new catchphrase

Mastodon is not Twitter
BUT THIS ALONE WILL NOT HELP...
...if you are still tangled in a Twitter-mindset!!

Are you still searching for the Trending Topics that will impose to everyone what is the thing about whom you "must" talk today?

Are you searching for "people to follow" instead of "people to interact with"?

Are you still planning time wasting things like hashtag wars instead of doing something real?

Are you searching for emotional and social gratifications by the number of retweets you received?

Are you still judging a post by the number of likes that received?

Are you still writing '"cool lines posts" for obtaining likes insted of writing interesting posts that stimulates discussion and interaction?

If so, pkease pay attention: there is still much Twitter INSIDE YOU.

(It takes some time to heal 😉)
