my CW request wishlist Show more
* physical, emotional, or sexual violence or neglect towards people or animals
* anything remotely medical: injuries, conditions, illnesses, healthcare, anything that might fall under "body horror"
* dieting, fitspo/exercising, and anything related to weight or body size changes.
adding CWs saves me panic and anxiety, and also makes me way more likely to feel safe boosting your boostable toots.
[this is just a pinned toot. plz don't boost.]
ghost looks for jobs Show more
almost every tech job posting ever:
"we're committed to diversity in tech....
....we're looking for someone with 5+ years of experience....
....in very specific technologies....
....which have historically been extremely exclusive and prejudiced....
...and consequently only cis guys have experience in these technologies....
....so we're going to hire an experienced tech bro, because business needs are business needs."

alice: how long is forever?
white rabbit: sometimes, just one second.
facebook, photo privacy Show more
mostly just posting this so there's a well content warned post to spread. facebook had a major bug that made private photos, and photos in your drafts (aka, photos you haven't posted yet) visible to third party apps.
so that's cool.

Trump to deport Vietnam refugees Show more
#Trump admin advances plan to deport #Vietnam War refugees, who have been in the US since the 1970s, after "reinterpreting" a 2008 agreement negotiated w/ Viet Nam https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2018/12/donald-trump-deport-vietnam-war-refugees/577993/
Tampon recall (cw: medical talk) Show more
A whole bunch of lots of “U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, Regular Absorbency” manufactured over the last TWO YEARS are being recalled because of a manufacturing defect that made them fall apart upon removal, as well as causing injuries and reactions to the materials.
destroy all prisons (cw: menstruation) Show more
Virginia's Dept of Corrections has issued a memo banning visitors from using tampons or menstrual cups, because they are "an ideal way to conceal contraband."
In reality, they were banned because their creepy new body scanners can see tampons and menstrual cups in the resulting images... there appears to be no incidents of actual "contraband" being disguised as a tampon or menstrual cup.
Anti-capitalism, indigenous genocide Show more
Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island have been actively resisting capitalism for half a millennium. For twice as long as the US has existed as a state, for some 30 generations. Not just on a personal level, on a (inter)societal, (inter)cultural, systemic and organized scale.
In the face of massive population and knowledge loss, in the face of endless biological and military warfare, genocide, the indigenous peoples of the US resist colonialism & capitalism.
Hey! I'm learning to become a #sysadmin . I still have a LOT to learn, but what I need mainly right now is some project to get involved with.
So if you know someone who needs a hand on some basic server admin and maintenance or other work that might be suitable for beginners, pls let me know!
I'm based in the global south and have good internet connection. DM me if you have any ideas. I'm looking for both paid and volunteer jobs. #boost is appreciated!

on what it means when someone lets you know that you messed up (quote, transphobia mention) Show more
"I guess the moral of the story, or the one I hope some readers take away, is that when YOU are the person doing it — calling the wrong pronoun, saying the ignorant thing, etc. — your behavior is both unacceptable and deeply familiar. And when a trans person takes time to call you out, to explain it to you, to show vulnerability or anger, it comes at a personal risk and a personal cost. It is your job to make that worthwhile."
- Lewis Wallace, "A week or two of being trans at work" https://medium.com/@lewispants/a-week-or-two-of-being-trans-at-work-ddb46134bf38

meta, twitter/tumblr influx Show more
some of the new folks seem to not be getting this, so here goes.
twitter has social currency, masto has social currency as well.
twitter social currency rules:
- amass followers
- defend your territory
- demolish your opponents
masto social currency rules:
- share your life
- be yourself
- help others
as with anything, there's ways the latter's rules can be taken advantage of, but if you're thinking you can swap out one for the other, you're reading things wrong.
