Hi, I have avoided #introductions for the longest time. Mainly because I dislike having to sum myself up in a bio. I learnt in the other place that if you do so, it will just be used against you so I left it blank to infuriate those who would.
But this is a nicer place.
I'm a father of 1x lovely 4 year old with ADHD and autism who never stops. Husband of @Tarale who is trying to get diagnosed and help for autism, and me who doesn't see the point at my age of bothering and probably is neurodivergent... but I ain't gonna spend anymore time on it.
I enjoy spirited debate and through the years am both at once someone who can negotiate and probably doesn't know when to quit.
I care deeply about fairness, transparency and privacy - My latest project is twitter.com/OpenWelfare - coordinating freedom of information requests for the greater good.
read more from @asherwolf here about it:
I plan on integrating mastodon into it :)
I also have many other projects, probably too many of them.
I dabble with music, love VR gaming, old things, listening to vinyl, and want to see #mastodon flourish because I believe it is the future of the "town square" - but it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
Twitter is just software. Written by a company hostile to their own users, who could ban nazi's in a snap, but don't. I'm here because most are. Let's change - On the Internet, you can be in two places at once. The least that could happen is Twitter improves. #DepreciateTwitter
Fuck the SA government.
My partner was able to get cannabid oil on prescription from her doctor for two years, and found it made her life livable again.
Now without warning she finds no one she's seeing is authorised to prescribe it any more, and her original specialist has retired and she has almost nothing left.
Where do we go? Seeing a new specialist takes time and in the meantime she'll be left with nothing.
Here's an idea, if governments don't like people using illegal drugs, make their alternative easy to get!
Hey so here's my #introduction !
I'm Phoebe, I'm 36 years old and I'm transgender. I'm unemployed, but hoping to go back to study in the new year in a healthcare related field.
I like binging tv shows, anime and movies, I *really* love Star Trek. I'm a bit of an artist, but I'm entirely self taught, so it's not like I'm creating masterpieces or anything, but I like to futz about with GIMP, Affinity Designer and Blender. I got a DSLR awhile ago and I like to break it out every now and then. Real jack of all trades master of none territory.
I am annoyingly political, although I keep most of that to discord and twitter. So yeah, glad to be here and hopefully we can make this take off!

Is anyone here interested in acquiring this complete set of Babylon 5 scripts and assorted other books that Cafe Press did in the 2010s? Very good to mint condition. Many are autographed by actors and JMS. #Babylon5
The state is threatened by caring people talking and sharing ideas with each other.
The strength of our resistance, and the strong networks we form, is what scares them the most.
