If you're white, financially comfortable, and today is payday for you, you need to give your money directly to black and native women.

If you are a newly out trans person (or questioning) and a loved one is asking you to not transition for x amount of time for either ambiguous reasons, or reasons related to their own goals and not your happiness, then I have something to tell you.

That's abuse. You're being abused.

You deserve all the happiness in the world and no one should ever dim your shine. My DMs are open to you. ❤️

I'm a white settler living on stolen Multnomah and Chinook land.

I see ya'll getting harassed on here so I am ready to help collect my settler kin. My DMs are open if you need help telling wp to sit down.

And please please please call me out on my white bullshit when you see it. I know I have a lot to decolonize still and I'm willing to do that hard work.

Boosts welcome

Who is the one true god?

Laundry.

And what do we say to laundry?

Not today.

People who use "Chad" and "Virgin" without irony are perpetuating 4chan culture surrounding incel terminology and cishetero primacy surrounding sexual conquest as a marker of success.

Use this terminology and I'm going to assume you've dipped your toes either unwittingly or purposefully into the realm of White Supremacy and you get a block.

Also, are you kidding me? You're still using 4chan memes? Grow up.

Another reminder for my fellow white people: Stop using white sage to smudge.

That's not your tradition. Stop perpetuating settler colonization.

You aren't exempt from this because you're doing it 'respectfully' without actually checking in with any natives for permission for what you're doing. You're just being a colonizer and it's fucking gross. You can't have 'land back' in your mouths while you steal from the land with your hands.

Connect with your own ancestors. Relearn your old traditions. Don't continue to steal.

This is your periodic reminder that this entire continent is stolen land and it must be given back. All of it.

Good afternoon to the twitch infosec staff who are on Mastodon looking for new jobs

Gavin Wilkinson: Resign.

So we have a new puppy and the argument for crate training is... not really applicable in our situation.

I'm wondering first if any non north american people can give me some input on whether your dogs are crate trained since I'm curious if it's just an American / Canadian thing.

Secondly, I'm curious if anyone has experience with just... not crate training at all and just letting the puppy hang out and take them outside when they show signs.

Boosts are cool, thanks

And stop using white sage to smudge. That's not your heritage, full stop. Connect with your own ancestors, you don't have to steal from others.

I'm here to collect my fellow white people:

PLEASE stop using Buddha statues as decor. It's INCREDIBLY disrespectful.

If you're white, financially comfortable, and today is payday for you, you need to give your money directly to black and native women.

Tech Job opening on my team, boosts very cool 

To be clear, this is not a job at a tech company.

This is a tech job (meaning under the umbrella of information technology) at a company.

I do not know why people are reading it that way.

Tech Job opening on my team, boosts very cool 

My team is hiring for a Level 1 Information Security Analyst!

Trying not to dox myself: The company is worldwide but doesn't have worldwide hours, Fortune 1000, we're located in Portland Oregon and we're not fucking Intel or Nike (thank goodness). We also don't make bombs or work with the DoD so bonus points for not being evil (as much as you can in such a company so closely tied to global capitalism).

Culture is extremely queer-friendly, I'm openly transgender and lesbian and have received zero static from day one.

We're looking for fresh-outta-college type people or people looking to change careers who have good pattern recognition skills. Background in Analytics is of course cool, but we're also looking for backgrounds in Marketing, Journalism, GIS, General IT, you don't NEED a background in Information Security (we're good about teaching that stuff).

Position is based largely in the Portland Oregon area, but we're 100% remote work until at least February and likely longer (but that's just my opinion).

Any additional questions, please feel free to DM me. <3

The album of the same name is so fucking good.

FFXIV question, please boost 

I'm level 60 fishing with 266 gathering and 242 perception. My gear level is 45. I can't catch the beast of brewers beacon and can't figure out how to raise my gathering without just buying new gear.

Somebody please tell the techbros that dystopian fiction is not, in fact, a loose collection of instructions on how to form a society.

I'm not sure who needs to see this but here's Madeline Kahn singing about feet with giant Muppet dancers

As numbers rise, please remember that we all need to do our part to stay safe. Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Socially distance. Wear a mask. Get vaccinated. This is the best way to protect yourself from FOSS bros. We can get through this pandemic together.

My partner is recovering from top surgery and having a very hard time with the Ace bandage we've been told to use for wrapping their chest during healing. Honestly the wrap is causing more pain than the incisions are. This is terrible for obvious reasons and we need something else, please recommend and / or boost.
