Dear Plural Cafe!
In the last couple of days a lot of new people joined the Plural Café. Welcome, and great that you are here!
Getting to know people may take time. To help with that here is a list of bi-daily prompts for this month to inspire exchange and discussion! (For new and old folks alike of course.)
Credits to allofyggdrasil on Instagram, whose list of prompts for #multiplicitymay served as a basis for the list here.
twitch/ad blocking psa
ublock origin seems likely to update to fix blocking twitch ads soon
if you know what yr doing and want to try an experimental fix you can test out some of the stuff near the bottom of the issue's comments:
#introductions Hi! We're the Somnium Animus System, a recently-realized median system who's core is Seph. We've been around nearly their whole life in some way, but only just now are realizing we are #plural and putting names to our existences.
Seph is 21 years old, a college student, genderqueer, and a lesbian. They're also neurodivergent and dragon-hearted.
Info on the other members can be found through the link in our bio! We hope to use this instance to talk more about our experiences and let each member have a safe space to be themselves. It's nice to meet ya'll!

fediblock for a big masto instance, extremely gross ableism, genitals referenced
ppl have had serious issues with the way dot social has been running for like, a fucking while, but quite frankly, seeing a staff member post that ppl are "babybrained" and have "dents in their brain", and then their response to being reported for ableism is to mock it because they're an admin? fucking gross and we're sick of this kinda shit being acceptable
while we're at it we'll note that this isn't super new for luigi, see also: his past forays into, uh, mocking the very existent disability spoons theory because it's "baby talk"
there are probably more examples.
mastodon.social also just outright does not have rules against ableism. like, at all. presumably no one running the garbage site saw the need for caring abt ableism
(screenshots just in case of links breaking or other such things)
i never thought the words "babe, is this capable of being read?" would ever come out of my mouth but here we are!
plurals are also mentioned for a little bit, as an example of how the alterhuman community includes more than just nonhumans, and in how that can intersect with being queer!
