I’m hopping on a train to NYC tomorrow morning at butts o’clock, for a quick visit to consult a doctor about surgically improving my mortal form (nothing’s Wrong with it now, I just think this bodymod would suit how I’m living)
my logical brain: ok nothing bad is coming, this is just a chat, you can say hi to a pal on your way back, and tbh nobody is going to say “you suck, no [thing] for you”
my cardiac rhythm: 🎼 TRIP-A-LIT 2 3 4& 5, TRIP-A-LIT 2 3 4& 5
and think: a trans w?m?n sits down, pausing from thoughts of radically (and/or subtly) shaping hir “nontraditional” body into a communication of its own, and looks into a painting that’s working as a kind of mirror
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
