If @error_1202 hasn't seen the IA senate debate, I think he'd enjoy watching Theresa Greenfield run off the price of corn and talk intelligently about breakeven, and then Joni Ernst completely flounder.
"You grew up on a farm, Senator. You should know the price of soybeans".
@error_1202 I think that Ken Tremendous / Michael Shur will be particularly saddened by today's passing of Joe Morgan.
@error_1202 I suspect Andrew would be amused by this but it's almost certainly a fabric he can't wear.

@error_1202 Foz Meadows has this in their birdsite bio and it made me think of you:
"Jack of all pronouns, mxtress of none."
@error_1202 I see they made the bad mistake of not picking you for VP. Poor form.

if the only thing that defines queer community is shared experiences of oppression when everyone is liberated queer community becomes obsolete. If the thing that defines queer community or lesbian community or trans community or all community is shared experiences of joy and life then more people are invited to the party, ya, but also then even when everyone is liberated we still get to love each other and nothing dissolves. everything is fine.
do cis people they can just use whatever they're grouping people for to describe that group?? like for instance, if you're trying to describe the various people who experience misogyny you can just say "people who experience misogyny". it's entirely inclusive, and it's more accurate/pertinent to your point
If you don't know any other visually impaired fedinauts, feel free to tag me in! I love conversations like this and I'm usually happy to give this labor away for free.
If you do know other ones, make sure you ask first if they're willing to be consulted! Because it can be a real pain in the ass and people don't always like being the ambassador for their marginalization.
But it happens to be one of my Special Interests, so you can't say you don't have anyone to check with when this comes up.
I appreciate sighted fediverse users concern about image descriptions and ways to be "screenreader friendly." Mostly I agree with you, maybe with quibbles but they're not worth trying to nitpick and I'm aware I'm not the sole authority, just one visually impaired person.
But sometimes you all end up talking to each other and I worry that some of the advice that makes me wince is getting solidified into prescriptivism. Please make sure visually impaired people are part of these conversations.
Wow. This is a hell of a performance.
