~ 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!
I want seaweed butter >:O
Aaaaa the fancy butter...is here ✨🧈✨
(yuzu, seaweed, and buckwheat flavor)
Fancy an accelerometer-equipped skirt?
Also please note, @/the_aiju is very nice, and I should have blurred out their username before I used screenshots of me fake-reporting them for the demo... :D
But yeah try it out anyway and see what it's like, it might be easy and non-stressful. :)
Just found out that this is what the report process looks like in the UK - it might be a little different in other countries.
Apparently in Germany you get asked to enter your *legal name* at the end?? Weird and gross...
Also at the end of the report process it gives you the option to add more tweets to your report (up to 5 total), listed with their most recent tweets at the top and RTs not included, so it's pretty easy to add more.
For those who don't know how to report TERFs:
> Three-dot menu at top-right of tweet
> Report tweet
> It's abusive or harmful
> It directs hate against a protected category
> A group of people
(You can also report it as harassment.)
Coronavirus / COVID-19
According to my graphs etc, we're *right now* at the point in the UK, in terms of deaths per day, where England started gradually loosening the lockdown during the first wave.
D'you want to be impulsive and probably feel worse, or do you want to use that rage/powerlessness combo on the ultimate power move of getting their account and all their tweets redacted from Twitter in one fell swoop without saying a word to them, huh?
It's like the marshmallow experiment for trans people. :D
Look At His Face

I may (or may not) be asexual but I don't know what you want to do it for.
type “i may be *insert sexuality* but” and let ur keyboard finish it
The current most recent episode of the podcast @email@example.com, 33, Rachel Lange, is a nonbinary autistic person, and they're talking about the cool intersection of autism and trans stuff! https://www.fiftyshadesofgender.com/podcast/
I feel like I should make an account that posts screenshots of Mumsnet users saying they're not going to buy [product] again because it's trans-friendly, with Amazon referral links for buying the product. Could be quite lucrative?
Time to bring this back:
"Flora’s stock price soars after Mumsnet anti-transgender trolls attempt boycott"
Approx 30% of posts are like:
OP: Look at [Company], being """woke""" and respecting trans people. I carefully avoid insulting trans people because it's against the rules but it's clear what I think.
Someone else: Wow, I expected better. I won't be buying [product] again.
IN HINDSIGHT I guess I should be using the recycle emoji ♻️ for “boost” and not the rocket 🚀 but it’s just that the rocket feels more boosty. #poll 🗳️
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
