Not a full introduction post, but hello, I'm David and I have a sona by the name of Bowie. You can probably guess the type of music that I enjoy :bowie_laugh:

I both love and hate technology and that's too much a part of my life. I also love cute things! Pick one for us to bond over.

If you are a nice person, I want to talk to you! You can mention me, DM me, follow me, share fun things, or otherwise interact because I love all of it and love to interact back. :bowie_heart: :bowie_heart:

Asking for CSS help 

I use a custom font to help myself read, and Safari allows you to specify a stylesheet that will be applied to all pages - but my current implementation breaks icon fonts. If you had to write a CSS selector to apply to only text and not icons or anything else, how would you do it?

I am once again up early stressing about data structures

Whenever I’m on this Mastodon instance, I feel like I’m a neighbor in this cute little neighborhood. 🏘 And I’m so happy to be neighbors with all you lovelies! ☺️

Asexuality is not a footnote. It is not the fineprint at the end. It's not some rare exception to the rule.
You can't say things like "everyone is sexual, except for some ace people"
If you treat asexuality this way you aren't accepting asexuality. You aren't working in changing your understanding. You're just creating small space for exceptions.
Building a world accepting for asexuals has the challenge the underlying assumptions and understanding. You can't just add in exceptions to the rule, the rule it self needs to be changed.

Before you definitively say "there's no way way this person could be a bad person", you should do more investigation. Talk to some other people, especially ones that don't look like you. Find out some facts.

"Work hard and your work will pay off" say the privileged few who made it to the top of the hill, as if it was their hard work alone that brought them success, that luck, position, cultural and historical advantage, played no part. Hustle culture is toxic.

Hi everyone, I made a #bitsy game called Aura's Room !
It's about a girl in her room, and also about being lonely.
This is my first solo #gamedev experience, and my first foray into low-res
it was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it :)
