~ 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. :)

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.org), and a summary of my favourite bits of the very interesting TED talk by Chad Frischmann here: ted.com/talks/chad_frischmann_

It's really helpful for grassroots activism!

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...

Show thread

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.

Show thread

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?

Show thread

It's like the marshmallow experiment for trans people. :D

Show thread

Don't engage with TERFs, don't screencap TERFs for your trans followers to enjoy.

I promise you it is way more satisfying to put from:Username into the Twitter search and report like 5-20 transphobic tweets and then get notified by Twitter that they've been suspended in 2 weeks.

I may (or may not) be asexual but I don't know what you want to do it for.

The current most recent episode of the podcast @50shadesgender@twitter.com, 33, Rachel Lange, is a nonbinary autistic person, and they're talking about the cool intersection of autism and trans stuff! fiftyshadesofgender.com/podcas

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?

Show thread

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.

Show thread

I made a Mumsnet account to see what was up, because a few days ago some people attempting to disrupt the Gender Census were honest when asked which website they came from.

It was 35% weird, 5% "how do you have the energy to think about this for no reason", 60% boring.

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 🗳️
