Some of my Fedifriends know this already, so I might as well tell you all that I am somewhere on the asexuality spectrum.

I am still exploring this part of myself, but for now “heteroromantic gray-ace” is a good description of who I am, and the word “asexual” fits me for most intents and purposes.

I haven’t talked about asexuality as much as I’d like, so I‘ll get more open about this in the future. And I’m looking forward to connecting with more ace folks here :heart_ace:

A while ago I spoke positively about people shortening my nickname to “Marco”.

I retract that and I am asking everybody to stop calling me that way.

Marco is NOT my name and has never been; the nickname I chose is “miramarco”. I’d rather hear it shortened to “mira” than “marco” to be honest.

So I was PRETTY sure that before you could add the alt text while hovering your image preview, right after having attached it to your toot.

Problem: an "edit" button says you can EDIT the image, not ADD a description to it. When I clicked "edit" and saw a cropping tool, I just closed it, thinking what I was looking for wasn't here.

Aaaaaaaaah, UX. *stares gloomily into far distance*

Sometimes I read certain image descriptions here that don’t really make sense even if you consider the main text of the toot. You would still need to see the image to understand the whole lot.

I can’t help but think that people who use screen readers must be quite used to not understand what is going on. I can’t even imagine how frustrating it must be.

I'll just say this: nonbinary folks are not your thought experiment.

Hi yes, we exist, we're right here. If you're not nonbinary we don't need you ruminating on how our identities could possibly work and implying that they don't.

I don't give a fuck if you can't understand things about how our nonbinary genders or lack thereof work, keep it to yourself

life tip, if you tell somebody they've hurt you and their response is to argue with you, stay away from them

People helping eachother out is the most whip ass thing on this earth. Do it whenever possible. But also never feel bad if you do not currently have the means to. Just wanting to do it means u whip ass too.

I hope y’all are having a nice time, and if you are not, I can send hugs your way :blobreach:

Hey all! I’m in the process of writing a paper about LGBTQ+ people and their experiences in the Catholic Church. In order to get some more primary sources, I came up with a quick survey. If you identify as LGBTQIA+ and are a part of the Catholic Church, please consider helping me out!

All answers are anonymous and will only be seen by me.

Also any boosts are greatly appreciated! ❤️❤️❤️

To the ones who are talked over, not listened to or made to be quiet:

Your words have value. Your thoughts, hopes and dreams are important. Your questions, beliefs and experiences matter. Spoken or not, your inner voice is precious and wonderful.
