Looking through old notebooks I found a poem I wrote a year ago, a memorial to the girl who never got to show herself in youth. An elegy.
That poem described that girl and how beautiful she was, how she was, her confidence, her light. Last line: "I honor this ghost who lives in me."
But what I'm struck by today is how closely the description hews to how I look now, and how I feel, and how I am. That ghost is me now, in flesh; I have given her a body. I honor myself for that this day.
New users?!?!?! Hi, I'm Guerrilla Rain. I'm like Sailor Moon, but ratchet. I have been in the fediverse for almost two years, so I'm like a veteran veteran.
My advice is to: (1) be nice, (2) ask for help, (3) content warning and caption your stuff, (4) don't be afraid to get weird.
If you are a content creator, social networks are a con.
Do not post to somewhere you do not own.
RT @Hello_Tailor@twitter.com Tumblr will start hemorrhaging users as soon as this is implemented. Artists will lose income, and may well lead to a fandom mass exodus to other platforms.
If you appreciate Escher Girls' critical (and fun) feminist analysis of how women are presented in comics, please support its creator @ami_angelwings with the cost and effort of transferring it to a new platform before the Tumblr nipple police decide it's NSFW. https://www.patreon.com/ami_angelwings/
We live and breath the values of free software and free culture every day, while they are basically absent from the collective imagination. A lot of people don't ignore them out of malice, but cannot imagine a world in which they would be important. I believe that only by painting a vision of a world where they do matter, accessible to non-programmers and non-technical people we can convince them that those are important values - and policies - to push for.
Not every baker and schoolteacher needs to understand HTTP or assembly language, but they all should understand why net neutrality is important.
For over two years I've been working on #GliderInk , a graphic novel which aims to introduce people to hacker values and create an aesthetic different from Hollywood's "black hat" stereotype or a grim cyberpunk future.

I just want to encourage plus-size white women to be extra extra aware of the ways in which women of color get erased from the conversation when we talk about making space for bodies of different sizes, because it's FREQUENTLY rooted in white supremacy we aren't examining.

RT @IBJIYONGI@twitter.com: Voting: not where the revolution happens but hopefully the last two years have taught us that what happens with vote tallies can really shape the conditions under which we organize.
So vote like our organizing conditions depend on it. Then organize, no matter what happens next.
This guy decides to join a monastery. He's told he'll have to take a vow of silence, but every fifteen years he's allowed to speak. So he takes his vows and stays silent. At the end of fifteen years, he tells the abbot "This gruel needs more salt." He goes silent for another fifteen years, and tells the abbot "The sheets are pretty thin." Another fifteen years go by, and he tells the abbot "I've decided to leave the order. I don't think I'm cut out for this." The abbot says...
