I will fix your computer/phone/car/house/etc if you ask nicely.
analytical, genderqueer, angry feminist, semi-professional know-it-all, pacifist, transhumanist, kinky/poly/lgbtq+/pet/child/420/etc friendly af, security officer, mechanical/software/civil/architectural engineer, open source technomancer, occasional drinker of mediocre foods.
I fly the flag of the Audacious Space Pirates:
"We are the angry pacifists.
We desire peace and understanding.
Assault us at your peril."
Remember to breathe.
AMA, reddit, introductions meta
Here's some of the stuff I do, if you're on the aliensite, feel free to ask me anything:
meta meta, boost okay, play nice
regardless of what we boost, fave, or interact with, my policy on harassment of marginalized individuals is the same as my policy for all flawed humans:
Pick on someone your own size.
Bullies get the boot.
And if you've been called a bully, and disagree?
My message to you?
This is for you.
Do better, and I'll consider treating you as something other than a hostile to protect my people from, but also to be learned from, observed from a safe distance, and carefully encouraging towards a slightly less shitty path.
Block me, my instance, or whatever you want.
I may block you back.
Or mute you.
Depends on why I've noticed you.
That one's mostly on you, my tolerance for bull shyte and backstabbing is great but definitely not infinite.
Send me constructive feedback, or a suggestion for a moderation tool, and I'll analyze it, deconstruct it, and fold it in with my other plans to 'fix' the fediverse.
This is a marathon, and we're all running the same general direction.
Survival, individually, and as a community, is my priority.
If survival offends, you are the problem.
meta meta, moderation
Three self-moderation adjacent tools I'd like to have:
1) the ability to approve boosts
2) the ability to feature someone on my profile, like a 'latest toots from @accountname' box or something. Or even a single toot.
3) the ability to comment on a boosted toot, that didn't require the uncertainty of pasting a link and my instance caching the metadata/content/context correctly?
Is it possible to pin toots from other users, @woozle ?
current mood, mh (+), selfie, !eyecontact (eyes obscured)
just breathing today.
maybe some light cleaning.
(Attached image is of an enby, tilting towards the viewer a sun hat with the words "do not disturb" in flowing script. Their face is obscured, but the red of their shirt contrasts with the dark blue of the hat.)
I had to let go of my fear of being disconnected.
I will lose people I love.
That is intrinsic to life,
but moreso as more of us resist.
I cannot let my fear tether me
to communication channels,
My pride is a seductive thing,
I cannot be effective without laying it down.
I will admit I am afraid.
I will admit I am wrong.
I will admit defeat.
I will admit I need help.
Here's more of an #introduction of me:
As much as a #pacifist can be without crossing the line into violence, I am rather aggressively anti-cop.
If you *are* a cop, consider this next bit for you.
I will assume you are harming me, my tribe, my people, and my neighbors on an active and ongoing basis, through a variety of means, whether you intend and/or are aware of it or not.
Your perception of a situation does not matter.
You will need to prove you aren't a shit human to me *consistently* for me to believe you aren't actively harming those around you.
I will treat you as a dangerous hostile in all situations, and you will never get the benefit of the doubt.
Context, for this, if you need any more evidence than history, is my encounter with several individuals wearing badges and guns, who beat me and refused to take responsibility for their unwarrented aggression.
I raised my voice.
Not a weapon.
Be very, very glad I chose not to raise a weapon.

All additional funds get poured into making affordable housing a reality for my tribe, my people, and ideally my planet (and others?).
