CW meta/subtooting the entire fediverse 

Hello fediverse! This account will toot a few stories a week that are examples of solutions-focused journalism: how people are working to address inequality, prejudice, and exploitative economic systems. Want to help curate stories? Send a private message, either to this account or to @eloquence.

This account is not a bot - all stories are selected and summarized with love. :)

Did you know? There are standards on color contrast accessibility for background:foreground colors (e.g. on websites). If you look at/redesign your website, take the time to drop your background and text colors in this handy tool to see if your color choices are suitable: contrast-ratio.com/#%23DF691A-

Hey, nerds! I work at an alternative school in Holyoke, MA, where 31% of people live below the poverty line. I teach electronics & other technical art to mostly minority, mostly poor kids.

Can you get my students some tools & materials?

So hi! Could folks who are making jokes about Mark Zuckerberg please be aware that comparing him to a robot can be hurtful because

a) if he is autistic you are repeating the same tired old jokes about autistic people having no emotions just because you can't read our facial expressions, and

b) if he is not autistic then you are still doing that, and reminding autistic people of jokes people make about how we're evil/heartless - and at the same time you're comparing us to Mark Zuckerberg. Rude.

I'm moving forward on my podcast hosting project, slowly.

I'm threw away the wire frames I had scratched together because they were focusing on all the wrong parts, and I'm working on a clearer design doc.

I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to pay someone to build it, or build it myself.

I'm a queer feminist. I'm bisexual and I will fight for social justice, also and particularly for those who are less privileged than me. I know I'm not perfect, but I try to use my privileges for good.
I'm all for dialogue and I sometimes explain things, but don't take it for granted.
I sometimes struggle with queer feminist communities and discourse. Doesn't mean that the alternative is any better, so I'm trying to make the best out of it all.

I’m watching “Minimalism” on Netflix and it’s a documentary about rich white guy midlife crisis, which… is fine…

It also has that feeling that I get from bloggers who make money from blogging about how to make money from blogging.
