Pinned toot

anyway just a head of time

just bc someone wears revealing clothing or posts revealing pictures doesn't mean they want sexual attention

so pls make sure you know for sure when interacting that way if it's O K.

(for instance, not okay for me ever. pls never sexualize me)

(but boosts for selfies are always okay)

Insufferable privileged centrism 

'Biden’s brand is empath-in-chief, but on student debt he is alarmingly out of touch. The president has shared that his own children borrowed for college and noted that he was the “poorest man in Congress” – meaning the poorest man in a body of millionaires. He didn’t question the ease with which his well-connected kids got well-compensated jobs enabling them to repay their loans, nor mention that people his age were able to go to college without being burdened by a mountain of debt. All people want today is the same opportunity that Biden and his peers had.

Instead of acknowledging this generational disparity, Biden reiterated a common criticism of more generous forms of student debt cancellation – that it would help the privileged, specifically the minuscule subset of debt-holders who attended the Ivy League. But as Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response: “Very wealthy people already have a student loan forgiveness program. It’s called their parents.”'

Job lookin, tech, Boosts welcome 

After losing my job to covid last March I've had a hell of a time trying to find tech work. I gave up for a bit and did some bike wrenching but it's not making ends meet so I'm back on the job lookin train.

I have 18 years experience, mostly in systems administration, mostly in windows, but my experience is really all over the place. I've worked for government, university, fortune 100, small firms, consulting, data analysis, information security, kind of a Jane of All Trades. I have an associates degree and a bachelor's degree, and nine certifications that are still mostly relevant, one of which is the MCITP.

What I'm most proud of is my ability to figure stuff out. I'm real clever. I'm also able to communicate with non technical staff as well as super nerds.

So what's up, fediverse. You got any jobs?

Asking for money, Food, Cannabis, HRT 

Okay, so maybe instead of waiting until the very end of the month I’ll ask now.

I don’t have enough money and need help. My bank account currently has $5 in it. I still owe my landlord $50 for rent this month. I owe my other roommate/mechanic $50 for changing my oil and doing some other work on my car (he also says my serpentine belt has lasted a remarkably long time, and recommends I replace it soon).

My new job has started, but they’re only giving me about 8 hours per week so far (at about $13/hour), so even if that picks up next week, I can already tell I’m going to be well short of rent ($600) by the end of the month.

In the meantime, I’m almost out of food again, both my estradiol and spironalactone ran out today, and I can’t afford to buy more weed for my anxiety.

As the saying goes, anything helps, including boosts. I’m gonna leave this pinned to my profile for as long as I need to.

Update re crowdfunding

Ugh sorry to be a bother, but Tatiana hasn’t received any donations. She’s homeless in NYC and experiencing a lot of pain and heavy menstrual bleeding. She needs $40 to go to a clinic.

it's bullshit that Zoom has living captioning *but* you have to have a zoom account and enable it through the website, and so have to sign into a zoom client.

also i kinda hate zoom, and feeling like gaining accessibility means so often losing privacy.

@noyovo there really needs to be nuance with the way we talk about ignorance, and a totally dismantling of placing a specific sort of intelligence up on a pedestal.

having or not having knowledge isn't a moral issue, its often an accessibility issue.

aka ginger boosted

"ignorant" isn't always an insult. there can be good or bad (or neither) reasons for someone to not know something
