~ FOLLOW REQUESTS ~
If you already follow me from another account, you might need to message me first to be like, "hi, you have approved my follow request previously from another account!"
This is because I typically disallow follows from tech guys (e.g. pronouns are he/him, has something about Linux or webdev or gamedev in bio, etc.), but if I have already approved you and not kicked you off again then it's totally fine and I'll approve you again. :)
I just updated my current stock of #LGBT+ pride flag handwarmers and zines of various topics and you can see them all here:
Telegram channel: "Hey, do you want this?"
Things I don’t want any more. You can claim them, usually just for price of postage from the UK (or not even that, if the thing is small).
This is a thread about #drawdown (http://drawdown.org), and a summary of my favourite bits of the very interesting TED talk by Chad Frischmann here: https://www.ted.com/talks/chad_frischmann_100_solutions_to_climate_change
It's really helpful for grassroots activism!
Oh WOW this is extremely crap, BBC? 56% of 80 women on some woman's social network circle? Come on. Let's get some actual Science in here??
Headline: "Lesbians pressured into sex with trans women!"
Evidence: a social media survey of just 80 people, only half of which actually agreed with, from a group condemned by Pride in London.
This is propaganda.
Source of quote:
"Joanna Lumley says wartime-style rationing could help solve climate crisis"
"at some stage I think we might have to go back to some kind of system of rationing, where you’re given a certain number of points and it’s up to you how to spend them, whether it’s buying a bottle of whisky or flying in an aeroplane.”
-- Joanna Lumley
Having a pet cat undoes a chunk of it but I think I'm doing okay all in all!
How dare you describe my boi Twitter Polls in that way!!!
(It's fair, they are both unrepresentative and meaningless :D)
The Observer has reported that only 8% of schools have received CO2 monitors promised by the government.
But this data is based on a Twitter poll which is unrepresentative and meaningless.
post a pic you took with no description and bring some zen to the timeline https://twitter.com/Luiseach/status/1452191655419912196
"Laurence King Publishing, which created the game, said ... 'Wonder Women Bingo was released 18 months prior to Elliot Page’s transition. As soon as his transition became public knowledge, we commissioned a replacement.'"
V good, thank you @LaurenceKingPub@twitter.com also!
Big thank you to @email@example.com for withdrawing the Wonder Women game because it featured two prominent anti-trans women and also misgendered Elliot Page. 💚
I am as always compelled to provide a source, but don't click 'cos it's Daily Mail. :D https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10123867/Oxfam-drops-Wonder-Women-bingo-game-celebrating-inspiration-woman-including-JK-Rowling.html
Only have 47k followers to beat.......... XD
LGBTQ+ people who've heard about the Tunnocks tea cakes scandal, how do you feel about Tunnocks now?
Anyway, @BLGAlliance@twitter.com.......... How's the tone? Feedback welcome. :D
Ahhh I love the #TransLives hashtag, I hadn't realised how much I needed some positivity and lovely humanising transiness. <3
It's only now that people are naturally getting it right all the time that being trans has been able to become not really one of the biggest things in my life anymore.
My transition is mostly done, some things are WIPs, but my dysphoria much reduced and I can get on with life.
And yeah, sometimes people do call me "sir" or "she", and I don't mind so much, because there are enough people getting it right who I'd want to actually hang out with that it's not that big of a deal. :)
Sometimes it's because they don't know which pronouns to use and it's their gut instincts kicking in to avoid gendering me at all, and sometimes it's because they know about nonbinary people and they use they/them to be on the safe side just because they can tell I'm queer.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
