Hello! I am Kuutar (she/her), 38 year old white Finn. I am gray-bisexual and questioning my gender. I am currently unemployed and slowly radicalising it seems. I have social anxiety, recurrent depression (currently in remission) and OCD (undiagnosed).

What I post: Probably anything and everything related to my interests that include: mental health/ilnessess, anticapitalism, antiracism, feminism, lgbtqia+, books, music, cats, nature,games, geeky stuff...

folks realize that America isn't the only place with racism right? I'm super skeptical of anyone claiming they live in a place without racism. (usually means I live in a homogenous place and don't observe it.)

this is a call in, not a call out- folks who are new to fedi: moving from platforms like instagram that do not prioritize accessibility to this platform requires some serious unlearning around convenience and comfort.

it may not be as easy or comfortable to post images or posts here as it is on corporate media, but this is a space where accessibility is prioritized.

take the time to learn how to cw and caption. it’s a valuable skill and a valuable practice in mindfulness.

others have been posting similar things, but I also want to give a shout-out to @makegodgayagain for putting so much work into getting ppl over onto this platform, as well as everyone else who’s been doing that! ! we’ve needed a mass exodus to non-corporate social media for a while, so it’s cool that that sort of thing finally seems to be happening. regardless of how the ig boycott pans out (hoping for the best but u know how boycotts go), this is a definite positive development!

I realise I've never stated this clearly, so I will now. Please call me out/let me know, if I've said or inferred anything that is racist, ableist, anti-trans etc. I'm trying really hard to unlearn white supremacy, stop using ableist language etc, but I'm going to make mistakes. I'd rather know, so I can change that language/behaviour.

1-4/10 Mastodon +Accessibility. After I post them all in replies, please feel free to add anything you know about that I didn't add on! I made this for IG but I figured I'd share it here too, in case anyone doesn't know about these things and won't see it on IG.

Social media and social anxiety 

I have thought a lot of how my social anxiety affects on the way I use and feel about social media. I may write more about it later but for now my thoughts are still too unorganized and messy.

Mental health and meds 

Realised this morning that I forgot to take my meds yesterday. That explains the dizziness and vague anxiety yesterday evening. Now I have these brain zaps every now and then. I am waiting that this mornings dose is starting to work so that I can go to grocery store without feeling like I am going to pass out.

Long rant about IG and mental health 

I think the downhill of IG for me began when they changed the feed from chronological to this mess it is right now. It just makes it even more competitive and our society is already so competitive starting from school (or maybe even from daycare, I don't know since I never went). Everything is about achieving and performing and achieving more and performing more. Also I've come to conclusion that social media and my social anxiety is not a good combination.

Long rambling about IG 

I just realised yesterday that I am actually really tired of social media. Or should I say IG especially. I am starting IG-boycot tomorrow and I am at first disabling my account and see how it goes. I'm not sure if I am yet ready to get rid of it for good but think I am starting to use more Mastodon. Although I've found some good things and accounts to follow there and learned a lot about various things, I am just getting very exhausted of the platform itself.

i pretty much only post about prisons, but this “I Quit” email sent from an employee at a whole foods in Michigan is bad ass, and i need to share it.

Side note, the “Fuck y’all, i quit” email is up there with dystopian fiction for me in terms of favorite genres....

Maybe the best place to post photos on the Fediverse is PixelFed.
