Pinned toot

I am literally begging you to learn how to make a point without needing to deride and/or complain about someone else.

some personal boundaries 

Apparently I can't even sneeze around here without someone trying to give a lecture in my mentions. So I'm setting some boundaries. Cross them and expect to be blocked, muted, or just ignored.

๐ŸŒต I am under no obligation to reply to you.

๐ŸŒต Actually read what you're replying to. I'm sick of being deliberately misunderstood.

๐ŸŒต Don't DM me if we've barely even spoken before.

๐ŸŒต Don't write several unsolicited paragraphs to Explainโ„ข something to me if I don't even know you.

๐ŸŒต If you need more than one post to make your point, I won't read it.

๐ŸŒต All bigots are blocked on sight. No racists, TERFs, homophobes, mysogynists, etc. This goes for science deniers too.

๐ŸŒต Don't be disgusting for lulz.

๐ŸŒต Don't be an asshole.

Like, for the longest time, the most well known trans man in media was Buck Angel. And heโ€™s a complete douchebag TBQH.

I like that Elliot Pageโ€™s very existence gives transmasc people everywhere some much needed representation. Most mainstream views practically ignore anyone who isnโ€™t a high femme trans woman. I hope more transmasc people feel empowered by seeing such a prominent role model.

In 2020, the world collectively spent approximately $1.8 trillion on its militaries. If that much money was spent on food, welfare, healthcare, and infrastructure, I doubt there would be much reason left for everyone to keep fighting.

Choose your weapon

I think everyone should take time out to question their gender and actively make that choice. Yes, even cis people. IMO, actively choosing the be cis should be encouraged, rather than just seen as the default.

Well, almost nothing. I find people who've actively chosen their gender tend to understand themselves a lot better. Honestly, that's an attractive quality in a person.

A fun thing about being bisexual is that when an actor you have an unbridled crush on comes out as trans, itโ€™s just like โ€œoh cool, good for themโ€ and nothing else changes in your brain except the pronouns.

"Need a place to spend the night? Go to the Fucking hotel, then!"

It's sad that the town of Fucking has decided to change its name. I'd have liked to go there and open a cafรฉ. Then I could put up a sign by the main road saying "If you've been driving for too long, you should stop at the Fucking Cafรฉ and have a cup of Fucking tea!"

*Attenborough voice* Here we see a pack of social media users who are struggling to acclimate to this cramped and restrictive environment. Starved of external stimulus, they are forced to seek any means of entertainment necessary.

These individuals, with no better source of entertainment, are forced to make jokes about their own excrement. Others were not quite so lucky. With the feed already saturated with toilet humour, they must resort to causing drama for no reason. The conflict will be swift, but brutal...

Mastodon really feels like what happens when social media isn't given an enclosure with enough enrichment.

Do you mean to wish me a Cyber Monday, or do you mean that it is a Cyber Monday whether I want it or not? Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel cyber on this particular Monday. Or are you simply stating that this is a Monday to be Cyber on?

There are a number of things that โ€œCyber Mondayโ€ could be about, and internet shopping has to be the least interesting one possible.

Ugh. Takes* a few minutes. Thanks autocorrect, but I am unable to taste time. Believe me, Iโ€™ve tried.
