The community garden project I have been running for a local organization here in Phoenix is up and running!

Feeding Students USA provides thousands of food insecure families with fresh fruits and vegetables and other supplies throughout the year, using local volunteers and other resources within our communities. Now, they are also growing food.

White people have race
Cis men have gender
Straight people have sexuality
Abled people have access needs.

It's just that theirs are dominant and unquestioned in a way that refuses coexistence with difference, always elbowing others out while denying they do it.

Fumblethumbed a reference to a Brigadoon song as "Heather On The Kill" and now I want that.

I fundamentally believe that computers should help as many people as possible do as much as possible, and the way to achieve that isn't by hiding what computers are doing; it's by making what computers are doing understandable and manipulable by users.

Computers should do what their users tell them to. No more, and no less.

Poor little fawn doing panicked laps around the house. Must have been separated from mom.

I would love to help, but the fawn seeing me would 10,000% not help the situation.

#BOFH excuse #258:

That's easy to fix, but I can't be bothered.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Strong showing from the "let's make things worse" contingent over the last few years. Really on a hot streak.

I'm opposed, of course, I'm on team "let's make things better."

I'm thirsty. I'm very irritated by this.
