I did a podcast with my friend, Ziek (MeatBox)! It was a lot of fun and I got to talk about my creative projects, feelings about transitioning and just some general personal growth and life stuff. c:

I really wanna be more active on here, but at the same time, I don't want to be active anywhere and my brain cannot reconcile these very conflicting desires.

Told myself I'd be active here and then let months pass without ever checking this fhdoahfou

Repeat it all together with me:

The problem isn't "polarization"

The problem is white supremacy

Facebook gave $50,000 to the Republican Attorneys General Association, who through their 501(c)4 arm Rule of Law Defense Fund helped organize the protest preceding the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol that took place on January 6, 2021.

Other corporate sponsors of domestic terrorism in US include Koch, Comcast, Walmart, Home Depot, Amazon, TikTok, 1-800 Contacts, Chevron, NRA, Monsanto, Fox, Uber, Coca Cola, and Google.

...To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence. The frenzy of our activism neutralizes our work for peace. It destroys our own inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of our own work, because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”

― Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander

i'm pretty sure i've mentioned this before but it'd be cool to dissolve into a cloud of nanomachines

I'm steadily learning Irish Gaelige and practicing with the Ogam, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to really hammer down a language into your brain, please lmk.

There are shogi pieces symbols in unicode and that makes me happy tbh

I told myself I'd be better about not emotional posting on social media and then yesterday happened and that all went to hell in a handbasket because I wanna be damn sure no one following me supports that fascist, far-right bull shit and thinks that's hunky fucking dory

If you'd like some ideas of how to write an image description/alt text, you can refer to this handy guide: americananthro.org/ImageDescri

There are many other guides out there, too, if you do a quick internet search.

If anyone who regularly appreciates or relies on image descriptions want to reply with their own tips/tricks/links/resources, please do! I am by no means an expert on such things! :louis_toots_too:

A reminder that Mastodon has tools such as block, mute, and "Hide Boosts" to help you curate your experience, and we recommended you use them.

Is there someone who appears in your timelines often who you'd rather not see? Feel free to mute/block! A hashtag/topic that one person won't stop talking about? Filter it! A person who boosts way too much for your liking? Go to their profile, click the "…" button, and select "Hide boosts!"

Make this the social experience *you* want! :bear_hugs:

> Amazon Tribes Are Excited to Use Drones to Detect Illegal Deforestation in Brazilian Rainforest

> Indigenous rights’ groups and WWF International are beginning to train Andean tribes people deep within the Amazon rainforest in the use of drones so that they, as forest-dwelling specialists, can help protect wildlife, and identify, compile evidence for, and report on, illegal logging activities.

Antiblackness 

Pro tip tho..
If you get called out for antiblackness and playing victim when you go hard going at it with a Black nonbinary person, then refuse to have a civil conversation of any kind with them and use the excuse that said conversation would be "bad for your health..." does not make your behavior any less antiblack.. Antiblackness does not have to be intentionally malicious. Please listen when people are trying to point this out to you... Everyone has antiblackbias to unlearn.

Ooof, lots going on in the Fediverse lately.

Lots of hugs, everyone. I hope you're able to find some time for yourself; do something nice for yourself, and interact with a loved one. Take care. :heart_hands:
