#GetOnOurLawn Demonstrate to new people the culture of caring that we have.

Quoting a tweet "@MerriamWebster better get ready to add the 12,000 other sexualities to the list too then" and replying "We were born ready.

Second tweet (verbatim):
People keep
1) saying they don't know what 'genderqueer' means

then

2) asking why we added it to the dictionary

Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
