We're talking about bodily waste and sexual fluids oh yeeeaaahhhh
@Gargron this is subtly genius because everybody will want to leave Twitter if everybody suddenly starts tweeting about piss, shit and cum (in that order)
Long toot, short discussion of Mastodon features
I'm not sure how I feel about Mastodon having likes
It really is an artifact of the focus on "engagement" on profit-driven advertisement model platforms.
Does it really serve a functional purpose on a more organic platform, or was this something that we just included because the numbers game mindset is so embedded in us at this point?
Though I'm sure there's arguments to be made for it, I really don't see a genuine benefit to having that information be public.
Would a more bookmark-like feature not serve the same purpose from a consumption perspective?
I kind of feel that same way about scrolling timelines, but I always keep it turned on because I'm just as guilty of struggling with social media's typical trappings as everyone else. At least the option to disable it is there for those strong-willed enough to avoid having such a time sink
Pol, frustration with ex
I love how my ex describes himself as left wing, but regularly buys right wing horeshit

Honestly he's full of fascinatingly bad takes but is absolutely assured and confident of everything he says because he's said a few good things

"The factors a scientist would remove from a rat’s life to make it depressed — predictability and control — are the exact things that have been removed from workers’ lives in the name of corporate flexibility and increased productivity. There’s little more relief for many low-wage workers than for those lab rats desperately trying to keep their heads above water."

Good. Then I would love to see you talk more about working class elderly who can't retire. About people who were 50 when the 2008 financial crisis hit and never had a job again and never will. About LGBT people forced back in the closet in a care home. About older trans people denied transition care. About how much ableism effects older people.
Age and oppression is an intersection full of vulnerability. We can't ignore it.
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this issue, I've had it for a while now when ever I use apt to update packages in termux I get 'dpkg: error processing archive /data/data/com.termux/files/usr/var/cache/apt/archives/libllvm_9.0.0_arm.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/data/data/com.termux/files/usr/include/omp.h', which is also in package ndk-sysroot 16-5 E: Sub-process /data/data/com.termux/files/usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)' logged to stderr and I've tried 'apt --fix-broken install' with no success.

Selfie boosts always okay and very appreciated by my ego 😘️
We are a Mastodon instance for LGBT+ and alies! ☺
