so online people tell me i’m cute and pretty a ton and i really feel special about that—as someone who used to weigh close to 400lbs, it makes me beyond joyful to know other people see me as i want to be seen.
yesterday, a girl i’m acquaintances with looked at me and said, “you are just so beautiful,” and i almost cried because i felt so happy. i don’t receive complements or feel beautiful for the majority of the time, and when i explained this to her she said she was shocked and thought i just knew.
if you think someone you know is beautiful, or special, or talented, tell them. you never know if something so small might change their day or week or month for the better

I'm fine with it if you want to make jokes out of frustration w/the government & the industrial war complex & the scapegoating that came from the events of 9/11
I know a lot of you were little kids but it was pretty fucking scary being an adult & seeing something so terrible that you couldn't do anything about. Joking about the people who died & saying "well the US government has killed FAR more people in ___" like there's some kind of exchange rate feels like punching down to me.
tips for newcomers
follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!
boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.
please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.
hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.
don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!
@firstname.lastname@example.org - Have you heard of Buttercup (https://buttercup.pw/)? FOSS replacement for Lastpass, it looks friendlier than Keepass at first sight.
Do not help ICE in any single way shape or form.
any warrants they may have must and absoulutely must be signed by a judge and not ICE’s “warrants”.
Do not answer the door without looking.
Do not answer questions.
DO NOT HELP ICE!
My mom was born in Mexico, immigrated to the US and became a US citizen. not everyone is this blessed and a chunk of my family is still in Mexico so you best fucking believe im very vocal on those surviving the ICE raids
Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.
I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.
Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/
or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.
Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.
super neat looking printable wind up car as a gift card set. Really nicely done just by looking at the 3d models. i haven't printed the kit yet, but there is a birthday around the corner.
The first iteration of the #retribute app is now officially ready 🎉
It's a web application that connect to your Mastodon account(s) and suggest you creators to tip based on your activity.

@hackers.town sometimes we are technical, sometimes we are goofy, sometimes we are fired up....
But all the time we want to extend a hand to help anyone who also treats others with love, and if not love, at least acceptance.
We never want to be the tech community that is full of mean people being dicks.
That is all.

You've got to be fucking kidding me:

Apparently they're looking for someone who isn't good at math either.
This has knocked me off my stride this afternoon.
Lone Wolf & Cub is a series I came to later than many - and I got there from the films before I knew there was a Manga.
This is a significant loss to the manga art.
So I didn't watch #TheMagicians season finale last night. I was almost spoiled but stopped myself before I read the article. Now I wish I'd read the article because seeing it cold, I don't know how to process it.
