Pinned toot

So... I had to move to a new instance on account that my old one has been broken for several days with no sign of our admin. To be honest, I've been wanting to join a Jewish instance for a while now but inertia kept me where I was.

No choice now.

Other than being irredeemably Jewish I'm also nauseatingly queer, butch, and trans. I am a volunteer street medic and a photographer.

honestly, no one should ever ask for your gender on a form

Strange how you can have a vibrant online community with a positive atmosphere, and also not have to mine people's personal data for profit--it's almost like we don't need Silicon Valley's technocratic capitalist elite, eh?

This is subtooting half the federated timeline just in case I'm giving any of my mutuals an anxiety attack. Y'all have been fine.

Caught between wanting to block everyone who can't be bothered to tag their lewd/horny posts and not wanting to isolate myself from half the fucking fediverse.

Yes. It needs a fucking content warning and no you are not the arbiter of what is and is not "bad enough" to need one it's clearly not for you.

Today has not been a good day.

Cops are fascist twats now and forevermore. Just because a feux commie leader deploys them instead of a imperialist neo lib one doesn’t make them not Fascist Twats. Lipstick on a pig 🐷 👮 n all that.

If your communism relies on enforcers of the state you’re a punk. And you’re doing it wrong, punkass.

So, let’s say tech people are samurai.

Samurai were more than a class. They were a magisterium. That word is often used for priests, but also scientists, scholars, doctors... A magisterium is a professional class marked by obfuscation. Unlike aristocracies, magisteria do things. They rule practically more than legally. You can’t get around a magisterium if you want things. They hold purse and authorize movement. Magisteria pretend to merit whilst enforcing loyalty.

Tech is magisterial.

GRS discourse, creepy 

"the government now has the ability to maintain a registry of intersex and trans people" is not necessarily the progressive boon you think it is

that's not the kind of "representation in government" i'm looking for

allowing or expecting trans people to change their gender markers (name/sex) on forms instead of abolishing the requirement for those markers or forms in the first place is effectively just saying you think trans people should have to register with the government

catch me outside w/ a kippah & beard & payot, but also shirtless, in daisy dukes & chacos

I want to hack a DDR machine to replace all the songs with Chasidish pop songs because honestly...

I'm going to start calling the throttle of an automobile the "air pedal" instead of the "gas pedal" because really that's what it is.

Sitting here thinking to myself about how much is love to be a rabbi but there are so many obstacles if have to overcome to get there and it's a huge commitment that would take years and a hell of a lot of work and honestly not an insignificant amount of money and...

... and then my brain is like "you could just become a Messianic" and now I'm pissed at brain.

Please put content warnings on your information security parts, thanks.

Not just for me, though if really appreciate it. It's a really common paranoia trigger.

I still can't get over how good a motto "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly" is when you're suffering from executive dysfunction or physical disabilities

Like, of course it's awesome to thoroughly clean your place once a week or biweekly but if the mere thought of it is causing you to break down, vacuuming for five minutes is so much more than doing nothing

It's the best piece of advice I got in what feels like forever
