Hi, I'm the knitting squirrel! #enby!
also learning about people different from myself and how to stop or change oppressive structures (I'm white, German, afab, not disabled).
so, Hi! :)
Being blind is shit in a pandemic
Never mind touching my face, I'm used to touching /everything/ when I'm outside: to find out where it is, to read the label on something in a store...I've tried going up and down stairs without using the railing and that's a bad idea!
And food shopping. I did so little of this before but now it all has to be me! Can I not find a thing because it's missing or because I'm blind? I'm playing this game a lot now
And the screen thing. Ugh.
Wenn alle Argumente die ihr benutzt um zu sagen, dass Vermieter*innen scheiße sind genau so klingen wie die Dinge, die Nazis über Arbeitslose sagen, dann ist eure Kritik echt Mist.
Vermieter*innen sind nicht schlecht weil sie "keine richtige Arbeit machen" oder weil sie "auf Kosten anderer leben", sondern weil sie mehr Wohnraum besitzen als sie selbst brauchen und daraus Profit ziehen.
early transition take, 2/?
ppl who have realized they're not cis, and are starting to experiment with their presentation, often get this like, weird backlash of dysphoria all of a sudden and that can be super disorientating when you've like Just Realized You're Trans, but now wearing these things feels uncomfortable ?? the reason is, imo, for the first time ever, you're really seeing and feeling how u don't look like the gender you want to (cont)

So I thought I'd make a chart. Turns out we are predictably VERY cis man, much more than other social media platforms.
the horse chestnut is about to open it's first buds into leaves!!!

covid/social distancing, just mention
maybe i will be able to use this special situation to share some of my nice day to day happenings or findings with you (again). i would love to have the relationship with you all (means the posting people whom i follow and interact with, who don't get to read so much from me, except for my reactions) be a bit less one-sided...

hej dears, i think i can stomach the fediverse again. so hi! :)
fortunately my live doesn't need to change too much bc of covid.
i have a job, that i can still do, and i live with enough people in my household to not be lonely.
i can still go to my #garden, where flowers are happening and even some frogs seem to have moved in. that's incredibly good for my otherwise stressed mind.
also I'm #knitting lace again.
i missed you!
Hi all! This is a call to action for those who would like to help with their accessibility skills, or learn them while working on a not too complex web front-end. The quite popular Jitsi Meet web frontend has some accessibility issues which are preventing people with disabilities like me to participate in many meetings. These issues are low-hanging fruit. So if you would like to to do something good that really helps a lot of people and has big impact, here‘s the issue: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/issues/4541

violets are blooming in northern Germany! and spreading their gorgeous smell!
sorry friends and fediverse, in case you're missing my favs and small comments: i had to and will have to stay off social media for a while. it's too intense for me right now :/
