I am 100% trying to be supportive and not sarcastic as much as humanly possible and if there's ever any ambiguity please smack me because my calibrations might be misaligned. People-ing is hard!!

I'm Jason. I've done about a billion tours in the Great Internet Keyboard Wars, blogging in various places, starting out supporting atheism but realizing the atheist and skeptic communities were rife with racist, sexist, anti-trans bullshit. So I fought those folks instead.

I'm a cishetwhitedude. Mostly. I think I'm a teensy bit gay. I'm also Officially An Old. I have an anxiety disorder. And I'm pretty sure you're just humouring me if you fave my stuff.

HI!

hi, i'm twitter jack. recently, a bunch of indian people left my garbage platform over the petty insignificant fact that i love repressive government. now, i figure every human being is a dollar sign. that's my philosophy. so i'm here to introduce my new federated social network, Masterdon: the first federated social network linked directly to a CIA database

thinkin about the time st pauls cathedral had a lucifer statue installed, then banned for it being too hot, then had the older brother of the sculptor make one, which was even hotter

Today is #InternationalDayofDisabilities and I'd like to show off my hearing aids once again.

Without them I'm a poorly concentrated, tired and grumpy person. With them I can talk and work for hours, I can listen and be in noisy environments without getting exhausted.

Hearing loss is an invisible disability. You can't tell that I'm hearing impaired from looking at me, because my hearing aids are often hidden by my hair or simply hard to spot behind my ears. That also makes it harder to have my needs met. Even with hearing aids I need that people look at me and speak clearly when they're talking to me.

I often feel like I'm an imposter when I call myself disabled, but the alternative is to pretend I have a normal hearing and stop functioning in everyday life. I'm beyond happy and grateful that I live in a country where I get hearing aids for free and where I have rights both as a disabled student and in the workplace.

And here are my tiny, wonderful hearing aids 💞

If you're going to mock by impersonation, you have to do it in a way that isn't just asking that people put up with stuff they're already tired of. It's worth remembering, especially online where you could easily come off as just another obnoxious rando.

People really need to learn that affecting something irritating without either deliberate and well-executed uncanniness or clear satirical intent is just making others put up with something annoying.

My gods. We've been being sued so long that I'd forgotten what it feels like to not be being sued.

Now if only I could also feel like I am not massively in debt again, too.

hot take: things that you say on masto matter and the people on masto are real people and the internet can have an important impact on your irl life

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands

Who the heck called it “bottom surgery” and not 360 no scrote

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
