Okay, it just went to the log in screen. So one it logs on is there anything I should check or do?
hhhhhh I was trying to update #Windows and I walked away from my computer for a bit and when I came back it said that it couldn't complete the updates and was undoing changes. After a while the screen turned to the HP loading screen only for the "undoing changes" screen to appear again...it's been on that screen for several minutes now and I'm getting really concerned now... Should I wait it out??? #techsupport #advice #askmasto #askmastodon #askfedi #askfediverse

t*rf mention, blocked instance mention, t-slur
- segregation in sports, which is a huge 🚩. I also missed the part where the greeting is literally "terfs and tr*nnies," but before I realized who Paley was, I was considering the fact that maybe it was ironic or something??? idk. It's mind boggling how these things can look so innocent, pro-feminism, and pro-LGBTQ until you look into them... #fediblock @fediblock
t*rf mention, blocked instance mention
I'm a bit scared to say exactly what it was but screw it. The instance in question was neenster . org. It seems to be run by Nina Paley. I feel like writing this is going to bite me in the ass, but I'm still kind of shaken up by it. It seemed so innocent too. The podcast had an intersex guest and the toot gave the podcast summary, and it seemed really interesting. I missed the part where it said that she talks about the "discriminatory and hateful" -
tfw you search up something on #fosstodon to see if there's anybody talking about it and you end up stumbling upon not only a TERF podcast but a whole ass TERF instance, if the fact that Shinigami Eyes marks the site as transmisic when I search up the instance's name is anything to go by 🥴
mutual aid request, pls boost
guess I'm doing this again
my rent payment is going to bounce bc of an automated payment that went through for something else that i couldn't cancel in time, im still unemployed and struggling to pay for things, if you can donate anything it would help a lot
