if someone criticised Rube Goldberg i would simply flip a switch that activated a miniature train, pushing an egg into a series of tubes that lead to a wind-up car toy with a needle taped onto it, popping a nearby balloon which caused a small weight to fall on a button that starts a sowing machine which pulls on the fabric it's sowing, releasing seven small marbles that one by one fall into a bucket, weighing it down until the frying pan it's attached to falls from its shelf and bonks them on the head

Shitposting on Twitter is peforming for an audience
Shitposting on tumblr is yelling into a void and waiting to see who yells back

#trans #queer #Imcomplaining
The specific circumstance im referring to is my [ :hacker_c: :hacker_i: :hacker_s: ]manager telling me that its not as bad as i think it is to be trans.

The weird assumption is that is here to "replace" Tumblr and fill the same function. No, guys. That's batshit. Who is seriously proposing that?
