Hi. I was @mikeburns because I wanted to try Mastodon and it was the only server.
I have been informed that there are more servers now.

Graceless, anarcho-goth zine
I finally read issue 1 of Graceless, the anarcho-goth zine from 2011. They addressed the rise and fall of DIY, recommended radical goth bands, and called out the misogyny of the goth scene.
> we demand that the goth scene be more than a black-clad reflection of mainstream society
so! a new project i'm working on is a #MastoTips guide!
i've got the basics down, and i'm still organizing a little and formatting
i will continue to add as i go, and you can suggest things or add them yourself (esp for things i don't use/don't know about) as long as you're not a doink about it
you can also suggest guides/things to include at the end

sewing! - and masculinity, gendering, misogyny, environmental pol
As I learn to sew as an adult, four things come together to irk me:
- I was, through society and directly, not taught anything coded as feminine;
- sewing, and all crafting, is coded as feminine;
- all things coded as feminine, including crafting, is considered lessor;
- living sustainability and outside of consumerism is, often, a form of crafting.
I see what we did there, and I won't stand for it!
