Pinned toot

Sometimes I wonder if almost all the problems in the world could be fixed by:

Not considering people themselves as having different values/worths than each other.

Even in lowkey ways! Like making a statement by putting someone down instead of refuting their ideas, or at worst, saying they believe in terrible things.

I'm the person who'll follow you around like a puppy if I like you, and who spends their alone time playing with and creating all kinds of sciencey mathey computerey things :D

(Maybe I can follow someone around spending time with them *and* do sciencey things! :D )
(Although I'm really busy now in my life with certain projects :( )

(..Maybe someone would like to work on those same projects! :D )
(But I'd have to trust them a lot, and most aren't ready yet as of writing :P )

(fyi, if I unfollow you it's probably because I start to feel like my presence makes / would make you uncomfortable (or maybe in rare cases, that we just mutually wouldn't get along), not because there's anything wrong with you!)

Pinned toot

by the way people of the world, if I'm annoying and uncomfortable and you wish I'd unfollow you, PLEASE just let me know!! I'm *terrible* at social cues! ><

(I often just delete accounts or don't make them because of how many people I make uncomfortable with my presence, but I'm giving this a shot! if people tell me when I am, then maybe I can avoid causing discomfort enough that I don't have to delete the whole account to prevent incidents I never recognize are making someone uncomfortable!)

Is Cookie Clicker about a rampaging toddler given too much unquestioned control, a cookie-making artificial intelligence gone rogue, or a capitalist?

The answer
is yes.

I like to hold myself to a strict moral code

I call it

Keeping myself on the gay and narrow.

I started out life being straight because that's what I was told I was.

Then I realized I liked some boys so I declared myself bi!

Then all the boys I liked declared themselves transgirls!


so does that mean I'm back to being straight? XD

( # rhetorical silly question XD )

@codepuppy @jamey Now you just need to give it the ability to suspend all its member programs until they're given a larger CPU slice and better memory protection.

Perspective moment... if you have 10k toots and wish to archive+delete, using just a client api, which allows batches of 20 at a 1 second pace by default on archive but 1 at a time at a 1 per minute pace on delete,

archival: 8.3 minutes
deletion: 7 days

I'm looking for #bibliographical #references to support the need for #OpenScience. Can anyone recommend me good introductory references? Ideally, it should explain what it is (I assume there's no single way to do it), and/or why is it needed. Thanks! #open #science #help

being trans is like literally a hundred times harder if you aren't literally all of:

1) rich
2) white
3) not disabled (physical or mental)
4) able to "pass" by arbitrary standards
5) conventionally attractive
6) white
7) no health problems at all
8) really, really lucky
9) white

anyway i've been stuck for years and probably will never be able to finish transitioning at any point in my life because of this thing here, so that's great

fat people just aren't allowed to transition in like a hundred different ways and nobody's ever really interested in doing anything about it, even among trans people

it's not great

"I used to think politics was like driving: to go backward, put it in R, and to go forward, put it in D. I still think politics is like driving, but now it's like NASCAR: if we don't keep turning left we're all going to die spectacularly."

In case you missed it, Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality will give you a giant bundle of indie games for whatever price you want (default 10 USD, minimum 5 USD). The bundle is growing all the time. Even if you buy now, you'll probably get access to more games within the next few days.

"All proceeds will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund split 50/50."

It already includes awesome games like and .

Britain destroyed records of colonial crimes | National Archives | The Guardian

Everyone in the UK should know about Operation Legacy, the systematic effort on the part of the British establishment to conceal the records of colonial crimes.

2082 AD: Society recreates racist statues just so future generations can have the catharsis of throwing them into the sea XD

So I made it :3

If anyone in the universe is slightly interested, lemme know XD

But given the only one that exists has like zero interest in it, I'll assume not by default.

(It'd take at least minor effort to put it up, so if there's no point, I'll just spend that time on other things that are actually useful XD )

@codepuppy I believe that semantic tagging always affects exactly one value, so if you wanted to take multiple you'd be required to wrap them in an array

We need a new term for IRL (in real life). For me, and I think a lot of people with chronic illnesses etc, talking to people online IS real life.

I'm not comfortable with the term 'meatspace', as it's too close to experiences of women being treated like a piece of meat*.

So do people have any other suggestions?

*not sure if this was just an Australian thing or not
