Found a way to keep people on the Internet from mispronouncing my name:
Mara, as in Umara Entangler.

@daHob
is the idea that, in this screwed-up world, showing kindness and empathy is a radical act of rebellion.

You don't just give to charity and respect people's pronouns because it's the right thing to do; you do it because fuck the patriarchy.

Oh hey, I'm running a conference and we just opened our call for proposals, if that's a thing that interests you

Main social media platform for this is going to be twitter, but if you have questions, ping me here or anywhere :)

Downloaded the pattern collection. Sifting through them to find something simple enough that I can focus on it in my current headspace.

What should I about for tomorrow? Don't say the prerelease, I don't feel like I have anything to say about it and it'd be my third Magic post in a row

I am absolutely floored. HMSChicago sent me this scarf, made of 20 SkyKnit-generated patterns that she debugged & knit herself. Loook at it!
It's a work of art.

Dear #Photographers and #Poets

With some photos of trees I had taken over several years I recently tooted Joyce Wilmer's, Trees, a sentimental poem written by that soldier who died by a sniper's bullet in 1918. A follower said he was grateful for it, so thinking he'd like more I found a link to some of the best from other WW1 poets: theweek.co.uk/arts-life/59798/. This #veteran hopes they may fortify hearts in training for peacemaking.

If you're about to respond to someone on Mastodon with advice or information or critique or disagreement, PLEASE read their post again to make sure that they have invited that.

If they haven't asked for input they probably don't want or need it, but if you still think they'll be interested in what you want to say, ASK before replying.

"Hey, are you asking for advice, or just venting?"

That's ALL you need to say.

I'm tagging it #netiquette (what a great word, haha) but it's universal.

This year I intend to write a blog post for the results of each question, and then combine them into two big reports (UK and worldwide) at the end.

I’m hoping this will break down the dauntingly large task into many smaller, more attainable goals. :)

The first blog post of results for the 2018 gender census is up!

It’s the results of the question about the spelling of #nonbinary - both in the UK and worldwide.

Came across a tumblr profile where someone said they were a 16 year old asexual and I caught myself thinking "man they're probably just not old enough to have sexual feelings yet." And I had to consciously go "That's not true, and so what if this is an exploration of labels? That's none of my business, I'm not the asexual police."

Anyway, keep growing, keep challenging yourself, keep questioning your first reactions and unlearn the toxic ones. And be kind to yourself, it's a process.

Some day I would like to not be sleep deprived.

this beautiful alley of oak trees is showing me that even Trees as dark as oak trees can be bright in spring!

@staticsafe I'd also like to tag on a reminder for everyone to go through their follow lists and check if they still follow someone at a witches.town username. If so, check to see if their account has been marked as moved, or if they've posted a new username!

A waterfall on the moor. I like it because it shows how the moor is really a thick blanket of peat covering rocky hills. #photography
