I'm Naga. A statistical consultant by training and trade, but more here for general social interaction, especially geeky, sometimes sexy/kinky, and occasionally left-wing political. Oh, and new-dad stuff. Dragonlet is my toddler, Jalan is my wife.

That's right, #Florence #Forkoff has gone live with its first usable pre-release! 🎉

Blog post: write.as/florence-development/

Code: github.com/florence-social/mas

For now the fork is essentially "Mastodon 2.9.0 with benefits", but in coming months more exciting features will be introduced. But this is a big milestone - it is no longer "vaporware" 🤩

ok so I need advice from the hive mind: if you were going to a conference by and for trans folks, and a trans psychiatric specialist was giving a talk, what would you want to hear them talk about? HRT and mental health? Meds? What would you wanna see them focus on, regarding trans issues and mental health?

a thing i see people doing sometimes is stereotyping bigots as ugly, unintelligent, etc, and there are two reasons i think we should avoid doing that

1. it splash damages onto people who also fall into those categories. saying ‘haha, person X is racist, they probably have a tiny dick’ only works if you’re implying that having a tiny dick is bad, and that’s body-shaming even if you’re being Woke about it
2. it sets up the contrapositive: if bigoted people are ugly and unintelligent, then smart or attractive people can’t be bigoted. and that’s obviously false and a dangerous thing to believe.

Wow, complain about hemorrhoids and draw a hate-filled spam-bot.

Somehow fitting . . .

Once Upon A Time my Mum had to give a professional speech in San Francisco and she opened it by talking about how nostalgic she felt finally seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, since it would've been the last thing her great-great-whatever grandfather saw just before he emigrated to Australia and tl;dr don't tell a roomful of Americans your ancestor left their country to seek a better life elsewhere if you want them to bond with you.

Morpheus: How did I beat you?

Neo: You... you're too fast.

Morpheus: Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? [leans in] Do you think that's TF juice you're drinking right now?

After a fumbling miscommunication about where McDonald's was:

Jalan: It's a good thing we can talk. If we couldn't, we'd never be on the same page.

Me: Yeah my pages tend to be riffling in the breeze.
