Pinned toot

A word about the safeword in my bio: I try to be inclusive, considerate, and generally not an arsehole, but I am not always able to do that, consciously or not. I sometimes have trouble reading the room, even more so online. The safeword can be used to unambiguously signal that I have fucked up. If you send me that, I'll try to stop and reach out to understand what it is that I have done wrong if appropriate. This is open to anyone and I hope this can become a more widespread practice.

I am now accepting applications for pro bono work. If you are a person or organisation (registered or not) that is or works with/for marginalised identities, especially LGBTQ+, or black/anti-racist activism please get in contact with me. I cannot guarantee I have the expertise or time to help you, but you're always welcome to reach out so we can work something out together, even if you're not sure. See rest of the thread for things I might be able to help with:

Why do I never have the spoons to do fun things ;-;

When I saw I had like a billion motifs and mentions I was immediately like "omg what have I done wrong this time" and then I remembered I put out an rfp and that it was probably about that and I think that tells me everything you need to know about me

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

asking for recommendation/connections 

as for payment, I'm thinking a flat rate, somewhere between 25 - 100 $ ish depending on scope, but everything is negotiable. feel free to ask questions if you're interested!

asking for recommendation/connections 

I have two fairly small statically generated websites that are basically blogs/portfolios. I've done what I can to make them accessible but that is not my expertise. I'm basically looking for someone to just use it for a few minutes, and tell me what would help you use it better. Pay can vary with the scope, but I'm not thinking of big elaborate things. Like, 15-20 mins of use and a couple notes would be great

asking for recommendation/connections 

Fedi, can you help me find someone who is proficient with visual impairment accessibility tools? ideally, someone who actually uses them, but familiarity with accessibility practices is also okay. I'm looking for someone to "proofread" my two websites. I can pay, but not a lot. more context in the thread below.

"Find out your GAY NAME!

Can we all just take a second to appreciate:
A) the sheer amount of skill and dedication it takes to do blindfolded playthroughs of games and
B) the implications of point A for blind people

Gender is hard and all I know is that girls and enbies are pretty. Thank you for coming to my ted talk

Is there anything more quintessentialy trans femme than putting on makeup and a dress as soon as everyone leaves and you're home alone?

When you're talking about Linux, it's okay to say that it's "open source".

It's okay to say that it's "free software".

It's okay to call it "GNU/Linux", "Linux", or to mess up its name.

It's okay to refer to it as "the one with the friendly penguin".

Part of RMS' legacy has been an incessant obsession with terminology and pedantry, overshadowing far more important shared objectives which are fundamentally emancipatory in nature.

Pedantry is not activism; it is alienating, not emancipatory.
