How I use content warnings
Content warnings are one of my favorite things about Mastodon.
I understand how easily a word or situation can trigger a trip to the darkest places of your psyche. Whether you're dealing with CPTSD or recovering from addiction, the world can feel like a minefield.
I don't want my account to be part of that.
I cw things of a sexual or highly personal nature. I cw references to alcohol, drugs, and gambling. I cw talk of racist or sexist behavior.
I cw long posts like this one and use the cw as a title. Line what you see? Tap to read more. But you don't need my long rambles filling up your timeline.
New year, new #introduction
I'm married (monogamous), bisexual, genderfluid, geeky, and a proud but exhausted parent. We live in Boston, Massachusetts. I love cats, cooking, computers, and staying healthy.
Most of my posts on this instance are about gender identity, specifically mine. I cross-dressed as a teenager before life circumstances pushed me into the closet for two decades. I'm now middle aged and exploring who I am with the help of a supportive & loving partner.
On this instance, I use she/her pronouns.
I follow back if you look interesting. Most people do. I love the wide variety of queer & other voices that have found a home on Mastodon. But I'm not interested in your racism, sexism, or other bigotry infecting my timeline.
Don't expect a lot of selfies. I'm sorry to disappoint.
I broke down and ordered a new (used) phone. I love this LG V30 but nobody will touch it to do a battery replacement, and I can't get a stable/complete version of Android higher than Pie for it. LineageOS can't even get its WiFi & data working right on Android 11 all the time.
It's still a plenty capable phone. I hate this throwaway culture.
The New Statesman tried to get Judith butler in an interview to try and push the trans vs feminist narrative and she SHUT THAT SHIT RIGHT DOWN
