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."

As far as I know, there aren’t a lot of people on the fediverse sharing news about Haiti (please reply and correct me if wrong)
I know a lot of the news that makes its way onto here is not from bots but from people, so I encourage you to actively seek out news and updates about insurrection and rebellion in Haiti. What’s happening to them could happen to Venezuela in 10 years. US Imperialism kills.
so yeah I'm a little salty about undescribed images because for me and everyone else who uses a screen reader—we just don't want to miss out on your posts. I followed y'all because I'm interested in what you have to say, and if you can't even write a couple words for your images, you're saying that's not meaningful to you
disability; bike lights; PSA Show more
Friends and fellow cyclists.
Consider using just steady lights instead of blinking ones. I am epileptic and have to bike everywhere to get around. Blinking lights, at best, give me a searing headache, and at worst a seizure.
Yes, it may take more battery or more charge power, but you are Still visible and not hurting people's heads and putting them at risk.
Bis in straight passing relationships? VALID.
Straight trans people? HECKIN VALID.
Cishet Ace friends? ALSO VALID.
Pansexual enbies who are currently only dating one gender? #VALIDAF
He/him lesbians? V A L I D
Respect people who have to deal with oppression that is different than yours. Or else.
my CW request wishlist (pinned toot; please don't boost) Show more
* physical, emotional, or sexual violence or neglect towards people or animals
* anything medical: injuries, conditions, illnesses, healthcare, and anything that might fall under "body horror"
* exercise, dieting, fitspo, and anything referencing weight or body size.
adding CWs saves me panic and anxiety, and also makes me way more likely to feel safe boosting your boostable toots.
us politics, prison labor, product labeling (boost with CW) Show more
I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society
When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision
Masto’s ongoing accessibility problem Show more
@Gargron approved a PR to change “tutorial” to “toot-orial.”
(Which I admit is cute, but I hope it doesn’t become an obstacle for non-native English speakers.)
Meanwhile... this request from a year ago to make the animated oops.gif static (a serious accessibility fail), complete with a 2 month old PR to fix it, still hasn’t been addressed:
Bisexuals have been saying for decades that it's not a binary label, that you shouldnt assume bisexuals are only attracted to two genders, that you shouldnt assume there ARE only two genders.
Basically, what I'm saying is, people push a false definition of bisexuality to justify their biphobia. Its bullshit that should be swiftly shut down.

Contraceptive Pill - The Pope Show more
so countless cis women and transmasc people have been forced to still have periods for 60 years for no reason, just to try and appease the fucking Pope, and he didn't even accept.
Contraceptive Pill - The Pope Show more
The idea of not taking the combined pill everyday was invented by a catholic man to try and appease the Pope. We've been taking the pill wrongly for 60 years.

I can’t believe it’s not called a TOOT-torial.

"NSFW" as a CW Show more
friendly reminder that the phrase "not safe for work" erases sex workers and centers white collar workers above all others (including disabled non-workers and asexual folks) who may need a heads up about what's contained in the post.
there are better ways to tag "NSFW" content. some suggestions:
- nudity: sexual or nonsexual
- partial nudity
- sex or sex acts
