My new hognose snake Aziraphel finally ate for the first time since I got him. I'm so relieved 😩

Our latest TROM-Cast about Nudity is up link.trom.tf/fE2wF

Unfortunately we got a lot of issues. First that of sound. I forgot that I messed around with OBS these past days and I removed the input sound module for my computer from OBS. So I had to fix it live....then the connection to @toplesstopics was not that great via Jitsi. I suspect is because the Jitsi instance we have used was hosted closer to us than to her, so her video quality was not that great + she interrupted a bunch of times. We did lots of tromcasts with people from all around the world but the connection was never as bad.

Lastly our live interrupted 2 times....and I have to investigate why. I have no clue at the moment. Maybe Peertube is too buggy when it comes to lives. I will test the live before our next TROMcast. Luckily I have recorded everything locally so all is saved.

Give it a bit of time to convert so you can stream it properTHank you to @toplesstopics for participating! Very interesting discussion!

I got so trapped with this XFCE thing haha....I need to take a break. So far it looks really great and maybe we will only release TROMjaro XFCE instead of Gnome. But this will be a months long process and a slow transition. I need to get out a bit haha. I lived in the computer almost exclusively for the past 3 days. Tomorrow, late at night, we will have a very interesting tromcast with @toplesstopics - 23:30 madrid time. Here videos.trom.tf/w/ueH6HswHA1MKh…

TROM-Cast 69: Nudity - Live here link.trom.tf/D_9z2_hW (tomorrow at 23:30 Madrid time)

In this episode we will talk about the notion of nudity. Why are the clothesless human bodies seen as being obscene in today's society? Why is youtube, facebook and the like banning content simply because of naked bodies being shown?

We have written three books about the topic:

- Morality and Ethics www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbo…
- Offensive and Obscene www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbo…
- Perspective: Private Mouths www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbo…

Our guest today is Cleo @toplesstopics from ToplessTopics. She has been banned from all social media platforms for the past many years, simply because she dared to show her nipples while creating non-pornographic, non-violent videos.

About her:

I'm a veteran "youtuber" and content creator who focuses my content on covering a wide variety of subjects, from progressive politics to parenting, gaming to arts and crafts, and I do it all from the perspective of "normalizing female toplessness through repeat exposure". Basically, providing an example of how a woman can be topless WITHOUT it automatically being considered "pornographic." Sadly, all the mainstream social media and video platforms disagree on the distinction!

-----------

We are also happy to provide a video platform where Cleo can post her videos. You can access it here videos.trom.tf/c/toplesstopics…

#tromlive TROM-Cast 69: Nudity

t.co/wUm4Wxj06A reminder that t.co/HwNMZ7vOQl, the pro-nudity anti-nazi platform I recently started uploading my videos to, is running a poll this week to pick the best day for hosting a video podcast episode focused on censorship of nudity!

@starvedhystericnude what does back away even mean? Pay the. Maintenance fees forever? Ughhh. I need to sleep on this. I started the day with a headache and it's only gotten worse.

@starvedhystericnude OK but how does that help me in my situation? What do I do if they start threatening legal action against us for breach of contract?

Sooo I'm freaking the fuck out, who knows how much of what I was just told is a scam, but theoretically the timeshare my idiot mom left to my dad will just pass to me when he passes?? And the going advice is "hire an attorney" but searching for attorneys just leads me to endless scams?? What do?!

I remain pettily frustrated that if a single already-popular creator retweeted or gave me a shoutout, I could instantly gain a thousand percent more followers than I've managed to garner after over a decade of trying to grow by myself. But I think it's pretty clear that's never happening, so I'm just trying to hold out and keep creating for creation's own sake. Which would be fine, except for all the time and money it takes.

Show thread

as always, I'm trying to hold out until it's finally safe to put the kids in school/daycare and devote myself to this stupid waste of time online content creation thing full time. Just wish I wasn't tired and headachey all the time, but let's not shoot for the moon.

Show thread

I'm getting more old videos uploaded to trom but it's tedious and annoying. I'm tired just thinking about trying to make posts about them and get others to read those posts. Even if I finally find a place to host my videos, I can't do anything about Instagram etc constantly banning even my insanely censored versions of my posts, and as we've discussed, there are so few people using platforms like this that posting about it here alone is barely gonna register on anyone's radar.

@Rojodi That's how Matthew claims he dealt with bullies, and I've tried to encourage Link to do the same. Ignoring them entirely isn't enough, they'll just keep it up until they think they've broken you--better to laugh in their face to indicate you heard them loud and clear and STILL weren't bothered, then walk away. I wish I'd had the strength to do that as a kid!
