even better alternative to salvation army is to send the money here: http://casaruby.org/get-involved/ this is a bilingual agency in DC that helps LGBT people in need via a drop-in center, housing for queer youth, and case management. they have been helpful to me in the past and they do great work!

antisemitism, post-pittsburgh Show more
i don't think i can wait for however many more and deadlier pogroms it will take for much of the left to acknowledge that antisemitism is still a problem today, is just as systemic as it has always been, plays the same role in the system of oppression that it always has, and that they are contributing to it

Hey people, putting NSFW in your bio doesn't give you free reign to post un-CWed, porn everywhere. Looking at you, new .social users. God I'm muting so many people tonight.
@derpayatz could even be an option in user profiles

Genitals, dysphoria, sarcasm Show more
I so love seeing un-CWed dicks. It's not like seeing random unsolicited dicks remind me of the part of my body I hate the most or anything.
Instead of donating to the Salvation Army, which has a long record of abusiveness towards LGBTQ people and is also colonialist in nature, please donate to organizations that help the most vulnerable LGBTQ people. One such organization is Casa Ruby, a bilingual agency in DC that helps LGBTQ people in need via a drop-in center, housing for queer youth, and case management. They have been helpful to me in the past and they do great work!
This is a reminder that "Mastodon is Dead in the Water" post is over 1.5 year old now and both Mastodon and the Fediverse are going strong:
I like the irony of sharing this link here.

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
