A gentle reminder about posting images:
Your fellow mastonauts vary in visual ability, and many rely on screenreaders. Please consider using the captioning function on your images.
Once you've uploaded an image, there's a text bar along the bottom of the thumbnail. Type a brief description in there (or a long one if necessary), so everyone can share. This doesn't count against your character limit.

Hamish's Handy Hint Pile For Pinning:

shitty behavior, but polite Show more
"FYI for folks who cannot (or will not) get it: polite mansplaining is still mansplaining. Polite racism is still racism. Polite abusive behavior will always still be abusive behavior. Putting a veneer of politeness on it is just a way of trying to make it deniable."
so, i'm working on an assignment on the history of trans women in tech.
the problem is that actually *searching* for names of trans women who have worked, historically, in tech so that i can look into them is proving to be difficult, never mind trans PoC.
so uhh, can anyone point me in the right direction or give me leads? i'm going to be doing quite a bit of my own research later.
Violence, jump scares Show more
Imagine a scene which is set up for a jump scare:
Character finds significant object, inspects it while they think all is safe.
Monster jumps out of nowhere.
Character smacks out the monster which said object in one strike, while yelling "Wait your fucking turn, dickhead!"
Let me be clear.
Preaching non-violence to communities that are under constant threat of racist, bigoted and hateful violence is siding with bigots. You are protecting people that are causing harm.
If this thought clashes with your personal ethics, then your personal ethics allow bigots to continue to harm people with no consequence.
You are a part of the problem.
The oldest known mammal species to evolve on Earth was a small shrew-like creature known as Juramaia sinensis which lived about 160 million years ago. Descended testicles are a mammalian trait thought to have been present in the earliest mammal species. So it's quite likely that anything 160 million years old is literally old as balls.
