Is it possible to add my own custom emoji on Mastodon without being the owner of the instance I'm on?

Microsoft is so insidious... they're worming their way into every major language community and are doing their absolute best to ingratiate themselves with the FOSS community while they continue to destroy computing for consumers

Hiiiiiγ€œβ˜€οΈ I don't like needing to do this, but I'm still unemployed and my savings are starting to run low. So I have a ko-fi page now! If you can spare anything, I'd really appreciate any help with my living costs over the next few weeks.

Thanks. You're a delight πŸ’š

PSA for `mplayer` users:

You may *really* like `mpv`. It's basically mplayer but with a minimal UI to see playback/streaming progress, and built-in streaming of youtube urls.

Wanna help a Latinx enby with their gender-affirming goals? I finally found a queer space to safely work toward that and am looking for $250 to pay for personal fitness training. I have wanted this very consciously for myself for over a year and am happy it's finally happening! This would be a huge step for me, and I appreciate any amount to get me there! #donate #boost

hey did you know that 

trans men are men

frustrated minimalism feelings 

I'm curious what white men who are minimalists think about how only other white men seem to be interested in minimalism.

I think it's connected to privilege. It's generally white men who have the surplus time and resources to be able to get rid of things and replace them with a smaller set of expensive high quality things.

Curious what their minimalism would look like without the money, free time, opportunities, and continuous structural violence against them.

This is all coming from someone who used to enjoy cis male privilege and worked at a big tech company, who now is at a small nonprofit, just scraping by, and came out as trans. Minimalism kinda seems like a joke now. It was just privilege all along.

if someone's support of black people not getting murdered by police is contingent on how well behaved the protests are, they were going to find some reason not to care anyway

respectability politics are a dead end

I notice you, white friends who remain silent; who continue to focus on tech; who are "apolitical".
