I'm going to try to post :blobpeektrans: stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.

If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

I thought you might like to know that, according to the extremely unscientific methodologies I have at my disposal, MSP Social is really :gay:

I have treated myself to nice new pillowcases because I'm at a place in my life where I'm concerned about what pillowcases do to my hair while I sleep.

election fuckery 

@lawremipsum this happening anywhere else in the world: "pro-democracy activists have raised alarms to the international community as the ethnofascist ruling party ramps up disruptions to the postal system ahead of upcoming elections. local strongman groups linked to the party have taken to stealing mail collection points."

Just out here absconding with entire USPS collection boxes from Minneapolis for our *primary election*.

Warming up for November...

had to pack *everything* wet to make the train back home this morning :( My home is now a giant multi-room gear drying rack.

Don't let those Sturgis bikers back into your state until they've been quranantined for two weeks, it's that simple.

trans, US schools, + 

"Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling that required a suburban Jacksonville, Florida, school district to treat transgender student Drew Adams equally by allowing equal access to the restroom that matches his gender. Drew Adams’ case was the country’s first trial involving a transgender student’s equal access to restrooms."

Here's where we were, and how far we were from what is apparently a literal car race track. It sounded like they were having having a literal monster truck rally, within spitting distance, all weekend.

It's quieter in my home in one of the densest parts of Minneapolis, 24/7.

Oh, and it was a horse campground, so of the very few other people we saw this weekend: all women. It was a very sororal experience.

Toilets and fresh water from a hand pump AND I get to be nude if I want? It's all I could ever want or hope for.

By some quirk of covid and who knows what all else, we had an entire campground to ourselves this weekend. It was kind of magnificent.

If anyone tells you they move to the countryside for the peace and quiet, they are full of shit. There hasn't been a place in rural Minnesota that I've visited that hasn't featured a cavalcade of random night time explosions, gunfire, and egregiously loud engine noises.

It's not quiet!

@kyzh users cannot be trusted to mark media as sensitive. we will instead expect users to tag each post with hashtags related to all possible semantic interpretations of each post #mastodev #computers #nsfw #headassery

If you don't like people who use CWs to make jokes, or CW content you don't think should be CWd, or just over use the CW feature... don't follow those people. Problem solved. The unfollow button is free to press.

You don't need to rewrite the entire platform to make it impossible to use it in a way that annoys you.
