I'm blind and I had no idea October was blindness awareness month. So we need a blindness awareness month awareness month, preferably September. :)

1. I don't see anything: no shapes or colours. Occasionally get some (possibly placebo) light perception. Only intensity, no direction or colour or size of focus.
2. I do use braille.
3. But I mostly use TTS to access my computer.
4. I have work now, but it was difficult to get.
5. I don't do eye contact and I rock sometimes. Sighties don't like it.

An evergreen reminder: your time and energy is valuable, so don't let bad-faith actors rob you of it. Block and move on.

transphobia, nazis, wizard game, terf lady, cis bullshit 

If for some ridiculous reason you insist on giving 70€ to a transphobic fascist, an antisemitic studio and a right-wing lead developer (the Potter game) – WHY WOULD YOU TELL THIS TO YOUR TRANS FRIEND?

Yes please tell me more about how you prioritise childhood nostalgia over not funding genocidal fascists who want me dead, I would love to hear more!

On this day, september 11, 1973, the democratically elected socialist president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was murdered in a military coup. A US-backed fascist government took power until 1990, murdering, imprisoning, torturing and driving into exile hundreds of thousands of people. Do not let this atrocity be forgotten
