Pinned toot

I'm The Leviathan, but I go by Levi for short. I'm a 20-something (over 23, but I don't want to update this yearly) gay trans man (he/him). I'm black and filipino and sort of identify as blasian but I don't know much about my filipino culture.

I sometimes suck at being friendly because I'm an old fart and easily annoyed. I definitely am a "dad" type friend, though - always checking in, being concerned, and all those things.

I'm in law school and I work in criminal defense, mostly interested in helping LGBTQ people and doing post-conviction work. I live in NYC, speak Japanese, and I love anything dark. Gothic horror, Asian cinematic horror, classics, history, video games, web design, writing, traveling, and goth music are all things I fancy.

Definitely demisexual and don't do well with flirting. I'm very much a pro-ship/pro-content person, believe aces and enbies are valid LGBTQ members, and the king of unpopular opinions (it comes with the career). Yes, we'll probably disagree, but I don't block unless you absolutely irritate me.

I often am locked just because I like privacy, but send a follow request if you're interested.

apparently when you buy an album on bandcamp for $6.66 it throws up the horns????


Check your health insurance costs on because income limits have been slashed. I personally was just a couple thousand over the subsidy limit but will now likely qualify for a $200/mo discount, BUT OPEN ENROLLMENT ENDS SUNDAY. So check on it NOW and save a bunch of money!

help a black trans man in law school 

Hey, I am a black trans man and I’m in the final year of law school. I’m going into a public service fellowship (LGBTQ rights and policy work) after I finish and am barred, but money is always an issue since we don’t work at big firms and make big salaries.

I’m trying to put aside as much money so that when I’m studying for the bar exam, I don’t have to worry about paying my rent here in NYC, food, and things of that nature.

A blessed Lammas to you all. We’re getting ever closer to Samhain, and that pleases me to no end.


I think @gargron is making a big mistake here by signaling his intent to phase out the local timeline :

Besides debates about what "diverse" means, it's taking away a major incentive for people to start and maintain an instance.

Starting an instance to host a community is appealing to some people.

Starting an instance to do free IT for a distributed server farm of homogeneous instances seems like a hard sell.

me: what am i looking for today? i seek garments that say: here i am, bear witness to my dark glory. you may either flee on your feet, or stay on your knees.

sales clerk: so… black?

me: yeah black is good

If Pluto isn't a planet then Why does it have a sailor guardian?

there's no actual point to this comic, it's just a conversation i had with my parents circa 2000

Reminder that in the Mario Party series of games, Bowser can do a "Bowser Revolution" where he takes the coins from all players and redistributes them equally to everyone

Rule one of mastodon, if I catch you making a post I already made, I will sue.

Members of a police force are humans who let themselves be employed as executives of a state's monopoly on violence.

Pigs are one of the largest groups of victims of violent speciesist exploitation.

Please stop conflating the two and stop victimizing pigs even more by using them in your awful attempts at dehumanizing members of the police!

Pigs are not to blame.

Obligatory public interest law school fund post.

Hi, I’m Levi, and I’m a gay black trans man in law school. I’m going into my last year and I plan on doing public interest nonprofit work for LGBT advocacy.

The best part about working is that I get to help lots of people in need. I love it, honestly. The downside is that for a lot of us in this field, we get like 0 dollars. I have to pay my rent and afford my hormones... like all of us really.

If you’d like to donate, you can! But no pressure.

mutual aid request, HRT & food 

I hate to ask again, but December's three month prescription will run out in a month or so, and I only have enough to pay for a small groceries topup.

For extra fun, the new practice isn't willing to help with bloodwork, so I'm left with either being stuck with *those* costs too, or going DIY, as I'd at least have it under my control without hoop-jumping, and could finally switch from finasteride to busurelin, a surprisingly affordable GnRH agonist.

Either way, it's a chunk of change - £160 prescription + blood tests + £15/mo fee, or about £220 for a slightly longer supply of E2 gel and P creme, and busurelin spray.

On top of that, groceries come to a good £35/week, and finally resuming the contact lens subscription will require three months in advance - there's another £45. This pair's over a year old, which is *just a bit* over their intended lifetime.
