Pinned toot

For the folks who have followed me over from dot social, and new followers as well, I have a brand new Ko-fi set up if you like what I'm doing on Mastodon or on my website. You can buy me a "coffee" (even though I prefer tea) here:

If you want to read a bunch of free stories (and I'm working on a new one right now for the site), my website is here:

Fanartists who draw PoC characters with white skin are the fucking worst.

Sorry crypto fans. Now that Zucc is starting his own, blockchain just isn't cool any more.

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.

White trans people trying to tone police QTPOC on Mastodon, maybe just dont?

Like you're not going to listen to a cis person tone policing you on your trans posts. Or an allistic person tone policing you about your autism posts.

uhm, there's no "we" in "team"

For what it's worth, I just did the Pottermore quiz and it put me in Gryffindor. But fuck you hat, I'm going to Hufflepuff because it's got a MUCH cooler name.

If I was in Harry Potter world I wouldn't care what the sorting hat says because Hufflepuff has the best name ever.

Reminder that literally the first work of fiction in the Western ouvre, the Iliad, is m/m slash historical fanfic.

I just saw a gif (pronounced with a hard g) of someone flushing 56 chicken mcnuggets down a toilet and I started to think "what a waste" and then I remembered they were mcnuggets so it's probably better than actually eating them.

I really can't watch Contrapoints videos thanks to all the awkward skits and characters and such. It's a style that not only doesn't click with me, but actively pushes me away, regardless of her arguments.

But I don't seem to mind a bit when hbomberguy pulls the same sort of thing. Is it just because he presents it better? Or he does a lot less of it? Or am I being transmisogynistic despite myself?
