Hey everyone I’m Satsuma, you can call me Satsu if you’d like
I’ve never done an introductions post bc I am fundamentally unsure whether I actually exist but in theory at least I’m a #queer ace butch (they/them please) who likes learning about cool stuff and trying to make the world be a better place
I’ve been around on mastodon for a while so if you’ve got questions or need help feel free to ask! Or also if you just want to say hello 💛🧡❤️
Why are none of y’all discussing the fight club in the museum??????
your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves
to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline
This weird lil alien is a Maypop! The plant is native to the US (natural range spanning from TX to PA, roughly) & bear edible fruit that can be harvested in the fall
college reopening stuff
Former schedule for my campus (unlike main campus) was 75 min MW & TR classes w/friday labs (extra class sessions for 4 credit classes were also fridays, and referred to by students as labs even if it was like spanish or whatever) a 15 minute passing period and a 50 minute ‘lunch hour’ that was also used for 1x weekly single credit classes
New schedule is MR, TF, WSat & labs ?????? All classes are 75 min, w/a 25 minute passing period, no mention of 1 or 4 credit classes

Books, #queer theory, and anything else that catches my eye
