So I'm going to make a pinned toot because I don't want my bio to be too long:
Hi, I like to write (fiction and nonfiction) and try to be an activist for the trans, disabled, and ace/aro communities. I do this stuff usually under the name Sapphire Crimson Claw and you can find me on Facebook.
More specifically, I'm trying to get a non-profit together in my local community called the Southern Tier Transgender Advocacy Group.
It would be great if you liked either of these pages.
really surprised the KFers aren't freaking out over the fact that I met and shook hands with a US Congressman who told me to keep up the good work when I'm supposed to be so weird/dangerous/a loser, etc... nah they're just focused on the fact that I made an etsy wishlist? lmao
content warning meta
Are we really doing the “content warning” version of “how dare you trigger warn things I declare aren’t triggers”
Like the whole reason for it being a content warning is that it’s not necessarily triggering or upsetting or uncomfortable or anything like that
It can be for whatever the hell you want
The official User Guide literally says “When you want to post something that you don't want to be immediately visible”, not “when it’s a potential trigger only” 🙄
non-emergency financial support for QPOC
Its 🌈PRIDE month. If you wanna help support a chronically ill, asexual, enby writer of color, here are my assorted links to do that:
Patreon, a little worse from wear due to my illness interfering with keeping up to date (updates Tues & Sat): https://www.patreon.com/newfire
Bonus! My puppy that I haven't seen in a year is finally being returned to me! If you wanna help us celebrate, she has a WL too! https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/CYO09SMUS0L7?ref_=wl_share
the old idea of household gods (i think it was greek? maybe the romans stole it too?) just popped into my head again. i regularly call on the small gods for help.
Barbara DeWalt is the goddess of finding good parking spaces. sing her name while searching.
the small god of christmas lights takes offerings of burnt bulbs and can help find dead bulbs and detangle cables.
our family gnome Henry and his Valiant Crew are ace at finding lost objects (they sometimes "borrow" them, but always return when asked) and take gifts of veg or fruit peels and shiny coins and buttons as thank yous.
a trio of tiny robots looks out for our technology and my career. they live on the computer and appreciate plastic gems as focal points for their work.
then of course we have the ghost cat brigade, our three dear departeds who still wander the house and eat the kibble we put down for them.
i think that's the current pantheon. others crop up spontaneously. being pagan is FUN.
US, hate groups, liberals being disappointing
There is one catch though: even though I do accept that SPLC has been exaggerating the threat as a fundraising tool, the past couple of years have it made it abundantly clear that there is a real problem with hate groups in the US. Can anyone recommend better orgs working on this problem at a national level?
Agender, pan acearo, 30, otherkin, spoonie/mentally ill, into spooky stuff, trying to be an activist
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
