#deletefacebook #deletewhatsapp #deleteinstagram #FuckFacebook #fucksnapchat 

I deleted my facebook 2 week ago.. disable my Instagram so no one can claim my name. Deleted WhatsApp start using getsession, signal and xmpp. Oh yeah deleted snapchat app and abandoned the account.. what else, Oh I removed gmail account off my phone! Everyone should check out switching.software and do the same!

I guess for people to truly leave FB, Instagram and Whatsapp is if celebrities start mentioning how invasive these apps are and leaving them as a result. #deletefacebook

tbh tho it's bullshit how much we gender our hygiene products, like

Let masc people smell like fruit without making them buy a bottle that has a bunch of shit about how it'll make you more feminine on it!

Let femme people buy soap that makes you smell like a forest without attaching stuff about how it's totes gonna help you smell like a Real Man!

Let people who identify outside of society's narrow definition of gender smell good without subjecting them to dysphoria, dang!

meta, mostly for newcomers 

You know what? Being called out is no big deal. I've been on here since fall 2017, I've talked to pretty much everyone who's ever been big on the Fedi, I've seen communities rise and fall.

Do you really think I never fucked up? I said a bunch of bullshit in my time, I got called out on it, I apologised, questioned my biases, and did better, and we all moved on. That's just part of how we do things #onhere.

But when you receive criticism, the one thing you don't do when you get calle out on something you said that people thought was hurtful or harmful, is to double down and attack them for working up the courage to tell you you hurt them.

Christ. It's not *that* hard to swallow one's pride just once in a while.

broke: letting people change their name cause they get married

woke: letting people change their name because they're trans and have a real name

bespoke: letting people change their names because tbh trans or not you should just be able to change your name whenever you feel like it i literally cannot comprehend why this is a problem

kids, even very young ones, have a full range of emotions and more capacity to feel them than most adults and more ability understand their emotions than most adults give them credit for. they may not have the words to express it but that doesnt mean the understanding isnt there. if you have the opportunity to interact with a child please listen to them and do your best to help them feel heard and seen. its so, so important.

People: We need an app

Tech: To do what?

People: Fix the problem

Tech: What problem?

People: That we don't have an app

Tending to your is like making sure you have your . Even if you have no particular personal risk, there are vulnerable people around you: Whistle blowers, human rights activists, investigative reporters, the wrongfully pursued. If everyone sells their privacy except a few, those few stand out and are cornered quickly. But if it is a societal norm to protect your privacy, these heroines and heroes of our time are protected as well.

speaking as a game dev:

the reason devs keep saying "adding women is too hard" is because they think women have to be extremely different shapes and move totally differently to count as women, so just making female characters and putting them on the standard "male" player rig would be wrong somehow

it's literally just "real women can't have broad shoulders, slouch, or have flat chests, so we'd need to remake the skeleton, do new animations, and remodel all the equipment to have boobs on it"

A little test with two characters of mine. It has more of a personal meaning for me rather than belongs to any specific story.

The dialog in the picture:
(I used up the wordcount for the image description)
"Did she hurt you?"
"Yes."

@ackthrice right but have you considered turning your passion into a joyless obligation that you depend on until you resent having to do it?

I'm having trouble keeping my account alive with all the school work going on. I'm sorry for that. I haven't drawn much since summer vacation and my skills have already degraded... This is the only drawing that satisfies me so far.
