Howdy! Trans women are women, trans men are men, non binary people exist and their pronouns are to be respected, even if you don't like the person.

If you don't agree, please don't follow me

I'm in my 30's and a communist, with a lean towards Full Automation and Intersectionality.

I did a test a long time ago that called my social media style "curator" and I think that's accurate. I won't often post my own thoughts, choosing instead to boost the words of others. Boosts are definitely endorsements.

I'm cis, white, male, a uni drop-out, and a software developer both by trade and hobby. I also play a lot of video games in my spare time.

To be clear the argument in favor of north korea is not "they're a model society" it's "our knowledge of them is tainted by imperialist propaganda and they are generally a victim of said imperialists", and demonizing the dprk is both useless to a leftist cause and encouraging an imperialist one

I feel that you should be aware that some asshole is posting stupid toots from your account

50 years later and this is still the greatest legal response ever made

it's about the height in your heart, not the height on the chart

For real though, I watched Godzilla (1954) last night, and while the SFX and B-plot scifi science don't hold up, there are scenes that remain absolutely CHILLING. I distinctly remember there's a scene where Godzilla wakes up from the ocean and marches onto the land and rattles someone's house out of nowhere and it looked like something out of an air raid.

Because it was meant to look like an air raid.

The US is the monster.

Show thread

When Godzilla is an allegory for American imperialism and a commentary against atomic weaponry: HELL YEAH!! 🤩

When Godzilla is an allegory for jack shit and big monsters get to duke it out in increasingly contrived circumstances: HELL YEAH!! 🤩

are you fucking shitting me.

i deleted all the cache and app data for the samsung wearables app

because no matter what i tried, the always on display on my watch ended up turning off

at the very bottom of this article

it just casually mentions

instead of putting it at the top in big letters like it should have been

that TATTOOS CAN CAUSE THE ALWAYS ON DISPLAY TO TURN OFF

i have to wear this thing on my right arm, forever

because on my left arm there's a tattoo under where i'd put the watch and that interferes with the thing that detects a heartbeat

lol

I just thought up a joke with the punchline “high speed grail” and I have officially become a dad without even having kids

Saw a headline referring to a "male Karen" today and like, again, the word you're looking for is "asshole" or "racist" or "racist asshole"

I know that here on the fediverse I seem really cool, everyone looks up to me, and I've got more clout than anybody, but here's the thing...

-warm up toes
-nuisance
-yell at ghost (note: this does not frighten or expel ghost)

***FOR FOLLOWERS IN THE UK (PLEASE BOOST IF YOU HAVE UK FOLLOWERS)***
I have a voucher for a free vehicle MOT at a Halfords auto centre to be redeemed before the end of May. It’s of no use to myself or anyone else that I know and it would be a shame to waste it.

The first person to send me a DIRECT/PRIVATE reply will get the voucher and I’ll update this thread publicly to confirm it’s been taken.

Thanks!
