I'm getting a feeling like everyone is struggling with something tonight, like the load on everyone is suddenly much greater than usual.
So a big shout out to all of you who are feeling lost, frustrated, hopeless and down.
May this be a transient low.
Let us all emerge out of it with rekindled hope and power.
May we reach out and help each other through this.
May it strengthen the bonds we share.
Any new accounts that posted spam have now been suspended, and new accounts that haven't introduced themselves (<waves hi to zac>) have been silenced.
If you have been silenced but are in fact not a bot, please ask @woozle to un-silence you.
We'll continue silencing new accounts that follow the patterns I've noticed.
Everyone else: please do report any spam you're still seeing.
Thanks, everyone, and sorry for the nuisance!
I'm noticing a suspiciously large number of new signups with names that look like they were generated by an algorithm.
Can the new folks within the past 48 hours or so please introduce themselves? Thanks!
we should all take a lesson from subatomic particles
no more gender, just charge and spin and flavor
Moar sleepy kitties.
I cannot operate my computer because cat.
We seem to be having a blockage on outgoing toots. I'm hoping that rebooting the server (which it's needed for weeks anyway) will fix the issue, but I'm physically in a place where it's difficult to focus and I don't want to do a reboot until I'm prepared to deal with any squidgy Masto issues that might show up.
I expect I'll be rebooting about 1-2 hours from now.
With my voice transitioning, my triumphant shout has changed pitch and it's quite a bit more loud. I also my laugh has deeped to a villianous glee pitch rather than mad scientist cackle, and I love it. Not quite to a deep "Muwah hah hah" villian satisfied laugh, but still 👍👍

When I called my mom for Mother's day, she asked, "Do you have a cold?" and I was all 😅 "No, but my allergies are bad."
I don't know when to tell her I'm using hormones. Not on mother's day. Not during my grandma's birthday celebration, since they're still pulling the "we don't wabt to worry grandma because she has health problems" bullshit. Maybe mid-week, after that?
Ugh, I am so not looking forward to this.

Effects after 2 months on T:
+ voice dropping from 205 Hz to 172 Hz on average
+ I have chin hairs!!
~ I'm not used to chin hairs and I keep touching them and I wish they were softer, but I'm going to keep growing them out and see how I feel
~ I find random strangers attractive and I was almost sure I was demi-sexual before and wow that is strange
- I'm warm, all the time. Having a binder doesn't help, but I can tell I'm warmer than normal
