Pinned toot

Gonna see if I can pin this to my timeline properly so as people show up they can intro.

So I'm Visi. I'm 25, they/them. I do technical theatre, usually hair and makeup but I've been known to dabble in props n shit also, or costumes sometimes if nobody cares that I hate sergers. I'm a true crime nerd, pokemon go player, and all around human dumpster fire. I host, and do a lot of the day to day shit in the system. I'm here to meet new systems and make friends and such and like? Learn? idk. I've known about us for like 4-5 years now but I've never engaged in a meaningful way with the community as a host, even though some of the others (egg im calling u out) really wanna connect. So yeah. Whaddup guys?

Just a friendly reminder

Mastodon doesn't need your patreon money nearly as much as your local instance owners do

the use of "not now" as a general text field for buttons that used to say "cancel" or "dismiss" is some serious psychological warfare

hey. you.
no, you, just you.
i’m glad you’re here.

On Eldritch Beasts and the "Witnessing this descends you into madness" trope 

I hadn't thought of this in words before, but it's definitely a resonant feeling and I'm seriously glad someone did.

Also racists like Lovecraft and xenophobes of all stripes can get fuuuuuuucked

When you reach down to pet a cat and they close their eyes and push their head into your hand because they trust you so much 😭

its 2021 please stop using those "fonts" in your discord username i don't know who you are ����� but stop it

something I've kind of gradually learned from quiet conversations over the years is that there are a LOT of people out there who are in some sense trans, but who will never talk about it openly and never transition because it doesn't feel possible to them

top surgery gfm, donation request +++ 

ok so i have to raise $1055 each month for the next 9 months to get top on the date it's scheduled

if you can spare a couple dollars, please donate! if you can’t, don’t sweat it!! but please pass it on so folks who can donate get it in front of them!

non-binary HRT, looking for resources, boosts welcome 

Does anyone have good resources for folks who are interested in HRT but seeking a middle ground rather than a full transition to being perceived as the opposite binary gender? Located in Washington state if you have anything regionally specific.

Good news. I bet the tech industry (including Deer) probably could have avoided this if they had been less greedy and evil but then they wouldn't be capitalist

My own body? In this economy? Hell no, a bunch of us share

Hey just a PSA: if you are doing accessibility work in computer science, please _please_ add a dark mode to your application. Seriously, as someone with myodesopsia it is legitimately stressful and difficult for me many times to work with anything that has a bright white background.

HARD AGREE, systems like this have been the bane of my life, I've been basically unable to access emergency GP appointments for most of my life!

RT @skelakit@twitter.com

Systems that require people to telephone at 8am or earlier and be on hold for up to an hour in order to get a medical appointment are and accessibility nightmare and prevent many disabled and chronically ill people from accessing healthcare.
