Dear fellow cis people,

Trans women are women.
Trans men are men.
Nonbinary people are people.
Respect pronouns.
Respect names.
Respect people.


PS. Cis is not a slur. You are not being oppressed for being cis.

I am basically a giant teddy bear wolf thing. I offer hugs, glomps, head pats, scritches, belly rubs, and any other reasonable signs of affection peeps might be in need of today.

If that's not your thing, that's cool too. Boundaries and personal comfort are important. But the offer is there for those who might want or need it.

Everyone's posting introductions. Awesome. Time to jump on that bandwagon.

Hi! I'm Steve. I teach undergrad at one of Pitt's regional campuses. I have a Master's in Comp Sci and another in Divinity (+ a ton of student debt). Spiritual and religious, but in my own special syncretic way: influenced by Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Paganism.

Marxist-Humanist, cis male, gay, polyamorous, and currently single.

I like both video and tabletop games. I hoard books and vintage tech. I <3 FOSS

Must put down phone and do something productive.

Too many awesome people on fedi being awesome.

if activists of color have consistently talked about racism in left political movements i would simply listen to them and do my best to unlearn the latent white supremacy that's been imbued in me by decades of being white in this country.

How to avoid drama on the fediverse (part 2):

Stop and think before you reply:
- Does this conversation benefit from my input?
- Am I the best person to speak on this topic?
- Do I have a full understanding of what's being said?
- Is that *really* what's being said right now?
- Do I know and/or understand where the OP is coming from?

If you answer "no" to any of these questions, shhhh.
