Nsfw | nude 

I liked these both for different reasons but couldn't decide which one to post so here's both. #me #selfie #nude #lewd

Star Trek has a long list of its own issues and problems (esp. with queerness), but it's also the only major U.S. media franchise I bother with anymore because it's a tiny bit more self-aware than most and doesn't lick fascist boots quite so hard.

Star Trek, sexism, racism 

@ljwrites
Yes. In defense of Star Trek, they often pushed against conservative ideology, but had to keep reasonably under the radar or circumvent it.

For example, the Uhura--Kirk kiss had to be done when the morality chaperone wasn't present.

Also the more revealing female mirror uniforms had also to be hidden from the chaperones.

The female uniforms are an interesting story in themselves. I used to think they are terribly sexist until I found out about its story and how it falls within 1960's fashion and the discourse of women's liberation at the time.

Star Trek has a lot of problems (eg. Ferengis) but it also did a lot of good things.

looking for trans affirmation re naming (and renaming) 

Do there exist people who have legally changed their name a SECOND time? I think it might happen to me and I feel guilty and silly

Trying this again : do you have instance recommandations for nsfw art?
Since art-alley closed all i found were instances blocked by my motherinstance or places so small it feels like i'm entering someone's private conversations
Boost please, and Thanks

mastodon is a great platform, one of the best platforms... i believe we will do very great things on it. did you know that it's federated? not many people do! it's federated, just like the constitution. we love the constitution, don't we, folks? yes, we do

@robotcarsley Please also limit the emotions that your queer characters express to:

* Profound sadness because they will never be happy
* Profound sadness because of the tragic loss of their partner
* Sassy

Straights making out in film: Holy, pure, appropriate viewing for all ages, tongue is okay, close-ups too

Gays making out in film: A chaste hand-holding scene is rated R; a peck on the cheek is very risky, may be removed by censors; if it is a gay-film-for-the-sinful or a gay activism film to let the straights say "Oh I'd be one of the good straights", you are permitted one (1) kiss on the mouth lasting no longer than 0.25 seconds

if there's any consolation to how pervasive and harmful transphobia is, to me, it's what utter losers TERFs are revealed to be every time they have some sort of protest or other in person event

Their income model is to charge for their services based on a portion of the savings achieved by using their services.

The interview I heard aired in December 2020. At the time they were offering a promotion for municipalities with a population under 200,000 which gave free emissions reporting (for a trial period?).

there's a Canadian company that I heard interviewed that does emissions data reporting. Their name/website mentioned in the interview was electrifier.io , but I believe that name may have since changed because that url now redirects to alterum.energy/en/ . It seems they use a programmatic approach to determining emissions data for municipalities, which automates much of the manual work a consultant would do by querying databases (etc).

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
