Hm, haven't done a post yet. Here goes!

I'm Cara (She/They), an 18 year old software engineer from Massachusetts. I'm going to college for Computer Science so I can pursue a career in IT!

I write a lot of open-source software, mostly on my Sourcehut page here: git.sr.ht/~muirrum .

I'm also an amateur radio operator, an Eagle Scout, and I love photography and being outdoors!

how to run the largest social media site in the world

​:brain1:​ pepper site with ads

​:brain3:​ accidentally leak that user data to third-parties
​:brain4:​ don't tell users about it
​:brain5:​ intentionally sell that data to third parties
​:brain6:​ don't tell users about it
​:brain7:​ be accomplices to largest misinformation campaigns in history
​:brain8:​ pretend to care about it
​:brain9:​ do nothing about it
​:brain10:​ accidentally delete bgp routes, preventing engineers from badging in to fix the bgp routers

best part of musical theater is when the bows music is super groovy so i can put my script down and jam out in the booth

Asexuality is not a footnote. It is not the fineprint at the end. It's not some rare exception to the rule.
You can't say things like "everyone is sexual, except for some ace people"
If you treat asexuality this way you aren't accepting asexuality. You aren't working in changing your understanding. You're just creating small space for exceptions.
Building a world accepting for asexuals has the challenge the underlying assumptions and understanding. You can't just add in exceptions to the rule, the rule it self needs to be changed.

#ace #asexual

got my second dose but now feeling like garbage

smh for all this trouble i should've gotten 5g with it 😀

You can be both nonbinary and a woman.

Just as the sky can be both night and day, you can exist in more than one state.

There is no contradiction.
