Apropos of nothing, nobody owes it to you to tell you their race, gender, or sexual identity. Social media is so hostile to so many groups you are not entitled to know if someone is Black, transgender, bisexual, or anything else.

Spiritfarer is... amazing. Poignant, soft, compelling, touching, interesting, silly, playful, creative, and more. It's not the kind of game I usually play. But when I tried it I was instantly hooked.

if you want to do something about whiteness on fedi you can start by treating people like fuckin human beings instead of "personalities" who "hide behind their ethnic identities"

callout meta, harassment site (subtoot, none of y'all) 

don't cite kiwifarms

don't cite sources which cite kiwifarms

fuck's sake, kiwifarms exists to harm people - they are openly and explicitly a malignant source and they actively should not be trusted about anything

People being vulnerable on the internet is a good thing, actually. I would like it if we stopped punishing people for being vulnerable on the internet. I would like it if people didn't have to act aloof or faultless to avoid getting attacked and scrutinized for every minutia of their being. How do you not see where this is inherently harmful.

meta 

Ppl are like “what’s the big deal with defederating people should be allowed to block you” and on an individual level, yes, but on a people scale limiting federation limits a person’s reach. for example, when you have all these poors in one place generally forced to subsist on mutual aid and art commissions, then you yoink a chunk of their community/audience away, that’s got a tangible effect

so idk I think you should have a very straightforward reason where the benefit outweighs that blow

If you're trying to make changes to your life, like say dropping bad habits or picking up good ones, it helps to treat whatever it is you want to do as an anime special move. Come up with a ridiculous phrase to shout like "NEW ERA WAVE: EIGHT GLASSES OF WATER!" Work in some choreography, if you can.

I still can't believe my generation invented the foreboding dread you get when you remember a tween version of you had access to the Internet and freely posted opinions that severely misalign with the current you and those opinions are still forever floating around digital space.

thinking about it, american weebs overlooking Nakahara's art in girls magazines as a source of their beloved anime in favor of "tezuka was inspired by Disney" narrative is really at an intersection of both racism and the de-valuing of teen girl's media

You are Tired. Definitely the chill one in the friend group. You occasionally infodump about your interest but other than that you just kinda sit back and watch. Everyone likes to talk to you because you're just fun to talk to. But the catch to all this is you have the worst posture in the friend group. Please sit up straight we are worried for you.
