Are—are we all getting alts on sunbeam.city because MUST JOIN CO-OP?
I, too, feel the urge
if you aren't worried about privacy because you have "nothing to hide", given that state violation of privacy usually happens to minority and high at-risk groups, you should be aware that having "nothing to hide" is a heck of a lot of privilege
Don't let the material conditions of the current world define you too much, not even in a photographic negative way, because all of those structures are going to be abolished.
One thing I feel is a big contributor to burnout is being too focused on the "anti" aspect of left struggle. Being anti-capitalist, anti-racist, etc. Obviously, being those things is good, but defining yourself too heavily by being the antithesis of the status quo is an exhausting endeavor. Try to direct more energy to the post-capital restructuring, and anchor yourself on what you believe in as well. Universal access to material security, education, healthcare, etc. A better world is coming!
Oh shit, maybe I shouldn't have imported my following list from the other account. Oh well, noisy timeline++
I wish I could choose timelines I wanna see on a per instance basis on the main view. That way if I wanna watch a anime mastodon feed instead of the federated timeline, I could.

i'm realizing why i love this place so damn much
it's exactly like the atmosphere of radical openness and affirmation i've always tried to cultivate in every space i get to be a part of, even on a one on one basis. it's home!!
it's okay to not be comfortable yet, or even ever. set the boundaries you need, but know that acceptance, love, and affirmation will be there for you if/when you're ready.
if you're not comfortable in public you better know i'm here for y'all (insofar as i can be!!)
I'd love a community-driven Twitter replacement, but many fizz out. Mastodon may have hit a userbase tipping point, and I'm curious to see how its social and technological issues and limitations are addressed.
How better to embrace a community platform than by joining and contributing to a co-op instance? Thanks for welcoming me aboard.
what this thing is Show more
Mastodon isn't a website. It's software you use to connect to the fediverse.
Thinking of it as a website is kind of like thinking of your email client as an email address. "Are you on Gmail?" It doesn't matter; I can send email.
Fediverse. This is the important idea. I follow people who aren't Mastodon users, and I don't care.
