Pinned post

Gonna keep this as a thread on how having covid is doing, probably gonna pin it.

Day 1: Sore throat, did my test to go into the office. Positive. Took another on: also positive. Got sleepy at night and went to bed.

It's a garbage time. Let's reply with of when we felt we looked good. If you don't have any show a picture of a good time you had. I'll start.

My boyfriend got me a bunch of peach roses but I left them at his house.

Also he is my boyfriend now. 💜💜💜

Hello All!
Happy
I'm Arri a transgender woman. I brew beer, go and just generally love nature.

At work I do advocacy and engineering at Embark Vet.

Me: "God I wish I knew why I wasn't sleeping so well recently"
* downs an entire cup of coffee at 4pm *
"It sure is a mystery"

venting, current events, transphobia 

I just want to feel like I have a future. Is that too much to ask?

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

transphobia, gun violence, vent 

I just want to have one day where I can feel happy to be me without having to feel like every person on earth wants me dead.

We have comedians news orgs and authors calling us rapists. An entire political party calling us groomers and blaming everything that happens on us. And coworkers and friends telling us we are overrating.

I am very fucking done. I just want to be a woman, as bad as you cis ladies think sexism is transmisogyny and transphobia is way worse.

Going on vacation later today and I am so so ready for it.

queer discourse 

Love when people use the acronym LGBTQIA+ and what they really mean is cis gay men 🙄

K mastodon, catbug, puppycat. Basically the same character?

parents, religion 

Like, misgendering, deadnaming, and telling me I am a sexual pervert seems like the type of thing parents shouldn't do their own kid. If your religion is telling you to do that to them because they are trans it's not a great religion.

parents, religion 

IDK, just seems that if your religion requires you to be an asshole to a group of people, your religion is not good.

One of the hardest things for me is resting before I burn out. I know I should rest before burnout happens but I am so used to ND burnout cycle that it's my default.

Covid 

Day 11: Same as yesterday minus the tired, just morning groggy that the coffee fixed ☕ . Stuffy nose is at normal levels for this time of year, no fever and O2: 98%. Did a rapid test and it's negative. At home PCR is negative. Going to schedule a lab PCR for tomorrow!

Fediblock advice request 

Do you have pawoo dot net blocked? We have them limited but got a report where an account was hosting pedophilia, and we've had loooads of reports about them, so I'm not sure why they're not fully fediblocked...

Covid 

Day 10: Nose congestion is basically back to allergy levels. Still more tired than usual but not by much. Temperature is normal, O2 98%. Going to do a rapid test tomorrow morning.
