Pinned toot

hello, dear people!
i’m raphael, and this is my toot over here. :)

i like a variety of things (python programming, rock climbing, puns, dark wave, drawing, archery, tea, cats, chocolate…), tend strongly towards the nerdy/shy, and am coming to this instance from

hey y’all! <3

genuine question: why is there a captcha system run by anti-lbgt, anti-women’s rights bigots on’s list of *ethical* recaptcha alternatives?
