"i suppose the environment can take one more for the team"
Hey friends! As a reminder, crisis pregnancy centers (which frame themselves as offering abortion then work to push visitors toward anti-choice outcomes) will likely see a lot of traffic and “good press” as anti-abortion action proceeds. These centers often traumatize and outright lie to visitors about their options, e.g. by intentionally misleading you to delay abortion until it is illegal.
In case you were curious, there are resources to find these businesses in your area.
Votes for the poll are closed now. What a... hum hum... "lovely?" color. 😆
Thank you for all the participations! Now I'll try to paint a fantasy landscape with this one as my dominant color. I'll toot it here soon.
( If other artists around want to give this challenge a try , we can tag our toots with the hex address: #5b7376 to collect and discover them )
🎨 A painting/Fediverse experimentation:
With percentages of Red, Green and Blue, you can obtain a precise RGB color definition.
So, please vote for one or more color channel and with the mix of all the votes, I'll challenge myself to paint a fantasy landscape, using the result as the dominant color.
(PS: I'm doing full time inking/penciling on episode 37 and a bit of colored art cool-down would be great! Also I need a bit of 'Fedifun' this week. Thanks for your votes and boosts! )

Just like... mute people. Mute a lot of people. Mute whole instances.
If a person or a group of people are routinely throwing trash memes on your timeline, or talking about rough topics without CWs or whatever, you don't have to be the Politeness Police, just fuckin' Beal Toss them out of your headspace and get back in your lane.
I promise you its fine.

Social media, including the fediverse, is not secure or safe. Do not organize resistance, mutual aid, civil disobedience, etc. via these platforms. Fascists and opportunists WILL try to exploit these channels to disrupt, defame, threaten, injure, and kill, all in the interest of sadism and profit.
In person, without devices, with people you know is best. End-to-end encrypted apps are second best.
if only anyone progressive had control over the legislative and executive branches of the USA, then maybe we could get some fucking help on this
