Pinned toot

Since I never did an introduction post, something to know about me:

If I don't respond to your reply, it's probably just because I either

1) overthought my response and rewrote it in my head several times before deleting them all, giving up, and just hitting the 'favorite' button

Or

2) am just too severely fatigued and brain fogged to make sense of words.

Honestly nothing personal.

hello its been a hard day, may i interest you in a sleppy puppy butt?

Also if you are a disabled person and you wanna drop your etsy or your website or w/e in this thread, this could be the beginning of that directory!

Does any one know of any kind of directory of disabled small businesses/makers/online shops?

I've never seen anything like this but I know a lot of fellow disabled folks have to figure out creative ways to survive capitalism and it would be cool to have an organized way to support each other as we are able.

Boosts encouraged. 👍🏻

Anybody want to help a disabled & chronically ill/immune-compromised bitch find a remote job? 👉🏻👉🏻

Cuz I've been unemployed/looking for 10 months since I got laid off last year

And it would be nice not to constantly panic about the future.

Thx.

Me: I'm so tired of people

Also me: lonely for people

When a post says "do not scroll past",

Me: you're not the boss of me! 😤

Can someone teach me how to sleep?

My body seems to have forgotten how and it is problem. 😖

Living his best life, roasting himself like a hot dog. 😂 I love his hilarious "aww yea" face.

Checking out an audiobook from my library:

please let me borrow this arrangement of sounds for a period of two weeks, then I will return your sounds to you.

Root porn 

Finally just did a 1-2-3-GO! since it was taking me so long to find the spoons to repot this apparently very root-bound 3ish yr old spider plant.

Had no idea that's why it started makin babies until I saw the roots poking out of the drainage holes. 😱

I think it's also v mad at me for feeding it tap water (thus mineral build-up) but oh well. She fancy.

Looks kinda creepy and definitely more spider-like out of the soil. But v cool.

On this episode of random questions I think about:

What movies did you obsessively/repeatedly watch as a kid (if that was indeed a thing you did)?

One of my neighbors used to let me borrow The Secret of Nimh and some cartoon version of The Nutcracker on VHS more times than I can count and for some reason I never got tired of them.

Ableism re: image descriptions 

I'm certain it's already been said, but another reminder

There's an enormous difference between not having the spoons to create image descriptions (or needing assistance) and refusing to do them (or refusing to ask for help) altogether.

It's perfectly okay to need help. It sucks to ignore disabled people and our access needs.

ableist language / PSA 

It's easy (and it's oppressive) to call someone stupid or crazy to dismiss them instead of thinking more critically about what's motivating their behavior.

ableist language / PSA 

I'm too fatigued to explain this fully, but I'm here to remind you that
-idiot
-moron
-stupid
are all ableist slurs deeply rooted in white supremacy and I will probably unfollow you if you use them.

Bigots are not un-intelligent. People you dislike do not have cognitive impairments/disabilities. And guess what, hating someone bc their so-called 'intelligence' level is different from yours is ableist!

Can anyone share screenshots of how to pin a toot? I googled it but still can't find the button on Tusky nor in my web browser. 😕 (I'm on Android and using chrome if that matters.)

I'm full of questions tonight.

Does anyone have that post about a creative writing instance handy?

I thought I saved it but now can't find it.

Feel free to boost.

Okay so I'm trying to be more aware of the different kinds of privilege I hold

And I'm wondering if anyone knows the most appropriate word that means "non-Jewish person?"

Google told me 'gentile' and 'goy' but it said 'goy' has derogatory implications so I just want to know what's the most respectful word to use to identify that privilege.
