Please exchange contact details on here when somebody means something to you (doesn't have to be street addresses or other identifying things). Mastodon accounts get deleted, servers vanish, phones get stolen and shit happens.

Please reach out to me if we're mutuals and you want an email address or messenger details.

I'm AzureKingfisher, a woman with white privilege living close to a big city in Switzerland, with all the benefits of its infrastructure, while deeply missing being in nature.

I'm a parent (2016).

Some of my interests are , , and . Sometimes I try to make .

I'm , traumatised, suffer from depression and will write about mental health.

I deeply care to the point that it hurts, so I'm grateful for CWs to being able to prepare.

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

It's always some random lady with long hair wearing like, heels with an open toe and a short skirt, her hair loose around her face - - but the only times I've had to kick students out of the lab, it was dudes.

white culture is giving more thought to your zombie apocalypse survival plan than to POC trying to survive the actual world now.

@fakemaxkeeble Adult california scrub jays have a brain-to-body-mass ratio that rivals chimps and cetaceans, have displayed evidence of being capable of metacognition (the ability to plan for the future), hold "funerals" for their dead the same way crows do, and have shown the ability to take the perspective of others into account when hiding food caches.

Hello Mastodon! New and hopeful here. I'm working towards a #science PhD, but would love to get back to writing dramatic emo stories.

Generally passionate about doing the right thing and won't shut up about it. Those types.

I love bluesy rock, #food and exchanging fiction recommendations. Working in #Bangalore, originally from #NewDelhi. No pollution jokes, please, I'm damn sensitive.

Let's make Mastodon a safe, positive space! 🙂

death, generations, HIV, drugs, poverty, healthcare... etc (small thread) 

Gender, descriptors, women and non-binary?, advice needed 

Learned a new line today. I thought it was excellent.
"How did you come to that conclusion"?

or in swedish

"hur gjorde du den slutsatsen"?

"Hier, Lifehack! Man kann die Schale von Kartoffeln auch nach dem Kochen abmachen!"

Ich hätte es ja "Pellkartoffeln" genannt, aber ok. 🤷

Positive masculinity exists and is distinct from toxic masculinity (which men impose on each other through patriarchy)

Positive femininity exists and is distinct from toxic femininity (which is imposed upon women by patriarchy)

But also.

Positive behavioral traits exists regardless of gender and we should de-gender behaviors and stop coding things as masculine or feminine behaviors. Just have a big pool of positive traits and you can mix and match freely.

Using alcohol in food, derailing in forums 😕 

mental health -, blah 

mental health -, blah 

fun fact: the german article “die” is read by most english trained algorithms as "die"
