RT @EricaJoy@twitter.com

on this #TransDayOfVisibility, can we please aim for a trans forever of being safe, loved, valued, respected, visible, treated equitably, and having basic human rights recognized without having to fight for any of those things? that'd be cool.

I am interested in seeing if we can create a useful space for trans people and their allies that respects privacy and anonymity.

People shouldn't have to sell their online souls to Facebook so that they can belong to a useful forum.

@mesh4545 I'm in the same boat. I will try adding you later.

I really should learn to appreciate those times more :-)

ableism, fsf bs 

so apparently people are now excusing the creepy shit RMS does by blaming it on autism??? what the fuck??
Not only has he denied being autistic, it also feels just rlly insulting?? Like,, Im autistic and i dont go around doing creepy shit like he does,!! why would that be a valid excuse??? Being autistic doesn't require you to be a creepy asshole, and it's especially fucking weird when this is used as an excuse for an allistic person

fucking techbros >:(

I told a Wu-Tang Clan joke in a business meeting today.

It got a laugh.
