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.

Learned from losing someone to the internet void recently.

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.

Unsuitable for screen readers: the word "enby" written in binary with zeros and ones (oh the irony) 

Ab wann kann man eigentlich Workshops für den 36c3 einreichen? Und wo genau macht man das? Gibt es da feste timeslots? Fragen über Fragen :D

Social Media Linke so: „Beweise mir dass ich das gesagt habe aber wehe wenn du mich dabei zitierst”

does your website need to track gender?
does it REALLY need to track gender?
does it REALLY REALLY need to track gender?
are you POSITIVE it needs to track gender?

Stealth-type game where you have a very large excitable dog on a leash and you have to maneuver through a beautiful park, the goal is to find a walking path that avoids anything that will upset the dog, things that upset the dog include: children, squirrels, small dogs, regular dogs, birds, cars, unexpectedly large falling leaves, etc, the more excited the dog gets the more likely it is that you’ll lose control of it and lose the game

browsing mastodon. a tiny button pops up in the corner offering you the opportunity to "skip politics."

curious, you click the tiny button. instantly your phone transmutes into warm beach sand and runs through your fingers, streaming into a pile on the floor.

Dear LGBT allies: when someone comes out at work, "you're so brave" is kind of a bad response, and "you're so brave what with all the [list of things]" is a *really* bad response. It takes a lot of courage to come out; don't remind people of the things that already made it hard.

Also in the case of a trans/nonbinary coming-out, if they didn't specify their pronouns, it's good to ask, and if they did specify their pronouns, don't say, "Oh, this will be hard for me to get used to." Up-front apologies for getting it wrong are also not terribly helpful.

Eigentlich sollten es nur zwei Toots werden, aber dann war es doch ein bisschen mehr. Es geht um "wer macht hat Recht" und andere toxische Strukturen.


I still feel that TERF works best as "Trans Exclusionary Regular Fascist"

You may have the complaint the statement repeats itself, but it strikes me as better way to frame them than as any flavor of feminist

Did I ever tell you that I wrote a guide to using #Discord with #screenreaders? Well, I did. You can find it in its entirety at, and then you can come hang out in my Discord server. #a11y

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
