Please feel free to boost or like anything I’ve tooted, regardless of how long ago I tooted it or any other reason that’s stopping you. I won’t be creeped out or judgy about it.

Toots are forever and that also means I forever don’t mind hearing what you think about my toots. If I do end up growing a mind about some of my toots, you won’t find them here so there’s nothing to worry about

@whalefall This toot made me think about the environment in which it is necessary to state that speech must be free. That necessity is powerful but the fact that it’s necessary to stick up for free speech is itself an indicator of the nature of that environment.

Idk if that’s what you were going for but I appreciate that this is what you stirred within me.

My biases say that those other things likely are related to nazi shit.

The more someone knows about me, the better they can craft narratives, marketing campaigns, political campaigns, and propaganda to lie to me.

It’s not just that I don’t actually need what they’re selling but that what they’re selling is always more than just products.

To believe a lie is to remove oneself from the real world. I don’t need to make it easier for anyone to put me in their lie. I’m still trying to figure out my own lies.

Personal privacy and internet hygiene matter.

I’m getting better at remembering that it’s really really tough for human beings to always be perfectly accurate or precise about how pr what they communicate.

I have a lot of very good examples of myself making such failures, but it’s unjustifiably harder for me to remember others are also human.

Language is inherently vague—terms can be broad or narrow, sentences can be imperfectly constructed, the exact right word can escape oneself. Add in other influences such as the speaker’s

The bare minimum for Democrats to maintain their false image of being progressive were end the child camps and extend the moratorium and they said meh to both and went on vacation lol

LOL research has discovered that if you respect a cat's boundaries, they're more likely to be affectionate and less likely to scratch you.

Which of course the articles phrased as letting the cat be "in charge" because asking somebody if you can touch them aka *consent* has to be phrased as a control issue, and the "cats have staff" jokes come out. A dog's consent should be respected too!

Since "let the chat choose" is seen in all the articles I assume it's also in the university press release.

The fact that grocery stores are designed with a confusing layout to keep people shopping for longer is the perfect metaphor for the capitalist hellscape we find ourselves trapped in.

Businesses are not entitled to a presumption that they are acting in society’s best interests, let alone any one consumer’s best interests.

Masking after vaccination 

I will personally continue to wear a mask when in public after being fully vaccinated, whenever that happens (it would appear that might not be until 2022). theguardian.com/us-news/2021/j
