Once more for the people in the back:
Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
a philosophy of life
Learn what you can change; work to change it for the better.
Learn not to let what you can’t change destroy you; work to influence it in small ways that build up over time until you can change it.
Learn patience with the world.
Learn who you love; work to show them you love them.
Learn who loves you; work to show them you appreciate their love.
Learn patience with yourself.
Work to clear a space for yourself where you can spend some time not working.
Landlords, doxxing, entitled bullshit
An Ontario landlord recently doxxed one of their tenants by getting an actual sign printed of their tenant's name and the amount of rent they owed, and attached it to the house in question...
Then posted the sign on their public Book of Faces page, to shame the tenant for spraypainting out their name and owed money.
I hate this ride, I want to get off.
The Matrix, video link, Lilly Wachowski, transness
This pleases me so much, to have Lilly confirm that the trans themes woven into The Matrix was intentional.
I've been meaning to give it a rewatch for awhile now, but I think I'll prioritise that, even if I don't really like watching movies alone.
Trans media made by trans folxs are so important, y'all.
Watching some parts of the Axios interview, I realize it's been quite a while since I last watched him talk for more than a few seconds. Preferred to get the gist from written media. But seeing him now just has me flabbergasted again that this is someone in a position of power. I can't watch this.

"Oh, she's not in the village," the smitten vampire defended, "She's no common villager, not in the least! Nor does she dress, at all! Ah, the night finally descends! I go to her!"
These words sparked everyone's curiosity.
Secretly, they pursued, the first time many had left the grounds in centuries, all the way into the woods, where they saw her embracing a skyclad woman of wood and leaves emerging from a maple tree.
They all agreed to support their sister's conversion to vegetarianism.
"Oh, but she's just the sweetest thing," the vampire sighed dramatically, wilting with longing against her coffin, "Like maple syrup."
Her sisters shook their heads, astounded; they had speculated the nature of her nightly wanderings over the last few months.
"Personally, I prefer being a bride and feasting on guests who visit the castle," scoffed one, "The villagers taste awful and dress terribly. Abysmal fashion sense, all of them."
