Okay so tumblr is banning rotating cubes saying it's porn and facebook banned saying "i'm gay" saying it's sexual solicitation and Twitter always seemed like it could disappear at any moment

I feel like we need to be getting ready for Mass Migration to Mastodon, which means we need to fix anything that keeps Mastodon from being usable, and there is in fact something that keeps Mastodon from being usable, there's one specific thing, it's this:

note to all people that just joined fedi because of the tumblr shitfest:

y'all probably joined a large instance because those are the most accessible, but keep watch for the smaller instances around you, they have a stronger sense of community and you can make a meaningful impact on it!

don't be afraid to make accounts on multiple instances!

question about gender, nb

Anyone nb on mastodon who used to think they were male, why did you stop calling yourself male? (sorry if terms are wrong, correct my language, plz)

Was it like a big relief over something that had bothered you for a while, or did you just stop bothering with a performance that seemed off?

My focus is shot today. Not sure why. It's that annoying mid-level executive dysfunction where I can think well enough to know/decide what I want to do, and how I could do it, but can't do shit because SQUIRREL!

if like me you like Mastodon but really dislike the web UI, you can use the pinafore interface instead, just go to the link and plug in your account for nice clear, single column browsing:
