The fediverse is a profoundly political space. It is just not a headlines obsessed space. We don’t really care that Donald Trump called one of his kids a loser or whatever. That’s vapid. I would bet that Mastodon has a higher voter participation rate than Twitter or Facebook hands down. We just aren’t obsessed with constantly pointing and screaming, “Orange man bad!”
🍯 Like when Ori's our here and.. thinks of his own ones too much. But its just.. all of us. Whenever we're in the body. And its weird. I.. guess it's good to get used to since my.. own body probably needs glasses. I have blindsight but I.. really like to read. But I'm just.. not used to it. And the body's.. already weird to me.
I think I upset someone I.. didn't mean to. I was just.. critiquing their work as it is. It's.. what we're meant to do it class. Or at.. least what's done to us. But they started crying I.. don't know. Maybe it wasnt me. Maybe it was I.. guess it was too personal. But I don't know. I feel horrible.
Am I.. the only one who feels like people calling themselves... "no nonsense and abrasive style" teachers or.. similar things gross?
It just.. seems like they're using teaching as an excuse to be a dick. And it.. never seems necessary.
I.. understand there's different levels of clearness and.. straigntforwardness in teaching. I try to be.. pretty straightforward when I teach. At.. least with most people. But leaving things uncoated is different from being an asshole. And it's.. usually that.
Calling myself strong faced... feels weird. But it's how people keep describing me. I.. guess it's because of my cheekbones. They're not.. as visible in my drawing. The lines blend in with the.. scar lines. But they're.. very strong. I wouldn't call me angular I just.. most people draft a drawing of my face with a lot of straight lines.
