Today's act of self-kindness: go ahead and mute that person you don't yet want to unfollow but who's really sticking in your craw lately. Close that tab you're hatereading. Stop checking that one blog. Your time is worth spending on nicer things, like terrible cartoons or dollar store candy!

Women and #feminine folks working in fem-coded roles (HR, comms, front-end dev??):
Do you feel anxious about how seriously you're perceived in your work? Do you have internalized judgements?

How do you deal?

Hi everyone.

I make #music and #audiovisual #art and #performance.

My artistic styles revolve around dystopian futures, sarcastic deconstruction of hypercapitalism, digital surveillance, #queer genderfucking, the right to (total) privacy, anarchist thought, free software, cryptography and hacking.

I make electronic noises and glitched imagery. I like #cyberpunk #scifi and #afrofuturism

I might lurk for a while. I'm an asocial and pretty much closeted queer nb. But happy to try to engage with mastodon & .art community.

#introductions #madewithopensource #glitch #scifi

I guess the advantage of appearing straight-laced is that I can talk to other basic white people about stuff like prison abolition, and they're so blinded by my sensible sweaters that they don't even notice the unorthodoxy of what I'm actually saying.

Hello, #VR friends!
Anyone know what the licensing is on default resources in #SteamVR? Particularly, anyone know if the backgrounds (skyboxes) are under some kind of #creativecommons sharealike that lets you modify them?

Please boost!

"politics without economics is symbol without substance"

KevinCarson1 boosted

"Cooperative economics and labor self-management provide the members of the laboring classes who experience class exploitation and domination and non-class forms of oppression with practical economic tools to challenge the economic and political power of the economic and political elite."

#VBQuestions

Q: What is the top benefit of you job?

A: The time is allows me to invest into not only my own, but others happiness. I know many careers that pay the same, but very few that allow that freedom.

Do you have a question? DM me!

Came across a tumblr profile where someone said they were a 16 year old asexual and I caught myself thinking "man they're probably just not old enough to have sexual feelings yet." And I had to consciously go "That's not true, and so what if this is an exploration of labels? That's none of my business, I'm not the asexual police."

Anyway, keep growing, keep challenging yourself, keep questioning your first reactions and unlearn the toxic ones. And be kind to yourself, it's a process.

If you're about to respond to someone on Mastodon with advice or information or critique or disagreement, PLEASE read their post again to make sure that they have invited that.

If they haven't asked for input they probably don't want or need it, but if you still think they'll be interested in what you want to say, ASK before replying.

"Hey, are you asking for advice, or just venting?"

That's ALL you need to say.

I'm tagging it #netiquette (what a great word, haha) but it's universal.
