that answer sucks though. a much better answer would be,,,,

what if social networks were just a lot less fundamentally ableist and exclusionary

Show thread

the solution isn’t to stop using all social media, but we really all owe it to be considerate how we use it

Show thread

social media being fundamentally inaccessible might not seem like one of the most pressing social issues of our time, but to be frank that's partly bc you (reading this) have at least partially accepted the status quo of our contemporary ableist and exclusionary social networks

mh, depression 

it sucks bc i prefer being upbeat and cheerful most of the time

unfortunately most people don't take mental illness seriously enough to accept a behavior profile of someone who's generally outgoing and then sometimes can't function. it's broadly socially acceptable to condemn people who act as such, to make wild assumptions about their motivations, and to attribute negative personality traits to them -- especially when they're incapable of standing up for themselves

mh, depression 

one of my coping mechanisms for depression is to mimic the symptoms regardless how i feel, so people aren't as worried when i genuinely can't speak or get out of bed for example

i'm pretty sure it's extremely unhealthy but it's not like i can just up and explain why my behavior is suddenly different while i'm in the middle of a depressive episode, that's literally the opposite of what i'm capable of doing at those times

when one exerts their will over another, you can think of the former as an authority figure or you can think of the latter as deserving reciprocity

body parts (implied), personal 

yesterday i was on a date with someone i’ve been seeing for a lil while now. they mentioned the topic of personal anatomy several times, and it took my dense ace brain a few minutes to realize a) we’d literally never talked about it before, and b) they were curious to know. fortunately i caught the hint before they had to ask just outright ask the question directly, but it was a cute moment

celebrating our one month enbyversary by letting each other know what’s in our pants

i've been thinking about this for a while, but i've been reluctant to post about it bc it could easily be misinterpreted as a defense of some of fedi's famously problematic admins

i don't follow fedi politics closely lately but my general sense is people have perhaps seen enough iterations of the same general instance cycles to realize the quote-unquote headlines are not always the full story

people leave fedi for a variety of reason, but the local lore is always written by those who remain

Show thread

i've selfishly decided to switch to a single-user instance model for myself

i say 'selfish' bc if everyone does that, the fediverse will change substantially. the people who can't operate their own single-user instances represent a lot of marginalized groups

but for reasons i don't fully understand, admins who host other people on the servers get held to this absurd and spectacular level of public examination

in theory i'd like to host other users but i can't submit myself to that right now

Show thread

there's a recurring narrative on fedi around admins who shutdown their instances; people enjoy pointing and laughing and crying "failure"

i can't speak to why others wanted to be admin. i started an instance and accepted membership requests bc i had the time, energy, resources and technical competency to do so. i started bc, if people with those requirements don't step up and host instances, the fediverse can't exist

the reason i stopped was bc, it's not worth it. it's thankless and harrowing

unfortunately i can’t get bottom surgery due to a rare condition called having junk too hot to touch ♨️😎💯

i installed the tictac app all the zoomers are into and after watching like three videos the app decided i’m a huge lesbian and now it only shows me videos of hot soft butch studs flexing their biceps and winking into the camera so now i understand why people like this app
