toot!

I am a 29 year old cis straight guy. I live in Milan, , where I work in software development, but I don't really toot about it, so don't worry!

I like to (especially by public transport), to read, and to practice .

I'm on Mastodon since April 2017. Some sensitive topics I talk about (always with CWs) are mental health and Italian politics.

⭐ My more laid-back account is @miramarco, you can hit me up there!

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.

UK friends: I know someone there who is early in transition and can no longer keep up with the cost of hormones. Anyone have any cost saving.. Let's say workarounds I can send their way?

Boosts OK

There is so much untapped talent and yet if they don't fit the cookie cutter they are out of luck.

got my ass absolutely stomped apart by a zenyata called huehuecoyotl, a genderfluid god from the aztec pantheon that presides over song, dance, mischief, and "uninhibited sexuality". he's exceptionally notable for being a friendly god depicted not with a cadre of worshippers, but with human friends. they were considered one of the more balanced gods, neither fully chaotic or good.

actually it's only a city if it has a robust public transit infrastructure that allows you to get to any point in the city without using a car. otherwise it's a sparkling suburb

It's aro spec awareness week!! And I'm in the mood to answer questions.

Ask me any and every question you have about aromanticism! Got something you think is a stereotype and wanna check? Wondering if that thing makes you aro? Questions about what all the fancy words mean? Ask away

My boundaries: don't ask about my personal sex life and be open to hearing my answer. Beyond that everything is good to ask.

There's a falsity often perpetuated that certain areas, within the "third world" or "developing countries" are somehow unable or unwilling to function through the sustainable utilization of their natural resources. These myths are necessary to further colonialist, imperialist ideas, that those communities are too "uneducated" or "undeveloped" to be able to organize themselves to utilize their natural resources. It is a justification for the colonizing and exploitation of peoples and their land

Fediverse PSA for newcomers: Caption your images! 

Today is the first day of the Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week, a good time to remember that not everybody needs romance to lead a full and satisfying life :aromantic_flag:

I didn’t pay Betelgeuse the attention it deserved in the past, but now I look for it every time I look up to the night sky, and I try to memorize how dim it is at the moment, so I would appreciate it better if it becomes a supernova within my lifetime

"Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn't have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property." - John Lame Deer, Lakhota, 1903-1976

shout out to all my aro peeps out there today who have to deal with this normative idea they're missing out on a part of life and are 'wrong' in some way for not being a part of this romantic experience, y'all cool as hell :heart_aro:

You know how some people have been holding their smartphones perpendicular to their ears to listen to audio messages through the lower speaker, as if they didn’t know about that their phone switches to the upper speaker if they hold it in proximity of their ear, as usual?

Well, I just saw a kid doing that while talking through the regular phone app, and I have weird feelings about it.
