Hello to all newcomers! I see everyone is doing again — mind if I join?

I am a 28-year old cishet guy living in , . I graduated in and ended up doing for a living. I discovered Mastodon though almost a year ago.

Some of the stuff I'm interested in: , , , , , (especially the oldies), (mostly nonfiction), , , , ,

Good morning, folks. A few extra steps before the weekend :blobpeek:

reminder that getting people to subtitle uploaded media is only part of the problem

many folks don't use the flagship masto app

and some mobile apps still make their subtitle editors clunky & inaccessible esp to folks with motor or vision limitations - or still don't even have one

reminding folks to add subtitles is good but we also gotta ask our app devs do better so it's easy for folks to actually do that

so yeah I'm a little salty about undescribed images because for me and everyone else who uses a screen reader—we just don't want to miss out on your posts. I followed y'all because I'm interested in what you have to say, and if you can't even write a couple words for your images, you're saying that's not meaningful to you

Good morning, people. I know I have said many times, but reaching out to people for help can be difficult, yes, and sometimes doesn’t look fruitful at first, but it will save you in the long run

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

The confidence people have in their beliefs is not a measure of the quality of evidence but of the coherence of the story that the mind has managed to construct. -- Daniel Kahneman

The thing about 'not all men' is it's something men bark at people who are lashing out at the group that's hurting them. Trying to separate themselves and remove any affiliation.

All it does is tell those people to shut up while doing nothing to change the structures that allow toxic masculinity to continue that original victimisation. Step in and tell fellow men to stop, that it's not ok, instead of telling people, especially women, you're not like the others so how dare we get angry about it.

Hey when I reply to your images with an image desc because they don't have one don't believe it's passive aggressive or something, it's just that I want it to be accessible and share it

I used to believe that the video clips you see accompanying news stories on TV were at least somewhat representative of reality, but then I was at a major train station, I think maybe Union in DC? and a news anchor and camera were talking about the crowd headed for some sports game while filming a line for a train heading literally the opposite direction. Because one person in that line had a team hat on.

Good morning, folks. I need to find something to treat myself with in the middle of the week, so I don’t start my week already longing for the next weekend 😐

I do not want to hear about how ugly you think a billionaire is.
I hate billionaires too, but I’m never going to wanna hear that someone we both hate is ugly. Never.

The ‘beauty is good, ugly is bad’ thing is always always absolutely terrible.

It feeds the idea that our self-worth is connected to what we look like and no amount of ‘body positivity’ is worth shit if we continue to pull this crap just because we wanna joke about someone we hate.
