medical discrimination, anti-Blackness 

#MutualAid

My friend Frankie has been experiencing concerning medical issues, primarily with their breathing. They went to a doctor and were told nothing was wrong, despite chest pain, shortness of breath, and hyperventilation.

Their venmo has been temporarily suspended in the middle of all this.

Being turned away at a doctor is just another day as a Black trans person. They’re requesting funds so they can buy food.

ableism, functioning labels, meltdown mention 

i’ve had people online (read: Autism Moms) try to say that i can’t have selective mutism because i can like, type full sentences on a computer

worse b/c it obscures the actual character of racism as a social institution, unloads the work to bipoc around you by requiring them to 'be patient' instead of you not acting racist in the first place & lays the ground for blaming them if they aren't accommodating enough (we've seen this happen any number of times on here), and pathologises racism

aka ginger boosted

liberals tend to talk about racism like it's a personality flaw — like 'they just need to be shown kindness :)) then they will stop perpetuating systematic oppression :)))' — and i think a subset of white leftists talk about it like you'd talk about neurodivergence: 'i don't like making eye contact', 'i will occasionally make loud noises or repeat words', 'sometimes i will claim blackface isn't racist'. and frankly i think that's worse

@lapis i love it. penelopes best friend at our old house was my sisters cat so i was sure she and quinn would be friends eventually

my cat and dog play together

quinn (cat) bats at her face and gently bites her and penelope (dog) just stands there wagging her tail and occasionally pushes him with her nose

Instance Block Suggestion 

distrotoot.com Run by a youtuber who has very questionable politics. Also has no code of conduct and says it's unnecessary in the /about/more as "People inherently know how to treat each other."

BIPOC Instance 

Running a server is expensive 🥴😂 I'm still down to build somethin with collaborators who are all about african liberation, indigenous liberation and the solidarity across non white cultures. Obv a LGBTQ+ Friendly space, no time for that ignorant shit. lookin like it'd be an application based setup but we can figure out details later

@hafnia Captain Awkward's latest letter is a long thoughtful answer full of practical advice about how to deal with your racist friends "who aren't THAT bad" etc.etc., if people reading this want examples of what we should be looking out for and what we should do about it.

if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.

make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.

it's the LEAST you can do.

Lot's of people in academia on here.
I'm kind of at an impass regarding future life decisions.

So my questions are: Is work in academia worth it? What type of person do I have to be to get joy out of that?

please remember to set the temperature somewhere near warm to low when roasting me

My friend still needs help getting a new graphics card :boost_ok:​ 

My friend still needs $600 for a new graphics card. She cannot stream/recording or edit videos till she gets a new graphics card.

And until she does cannot make any money herself.

Please help her out in whatever way you can.

Her Streamlabs allows you to donate to her even when she is offline.

hey if any of you coders #OnHere are making a website app or database that asks the user for the preferred name/nickname,

but uses the legal first name in all salutations or otherwise never touches the preferred name field,

then your app is trash and so are you. hope this helps

@hay are you thinking of teaching, or residential life, or library, or other things?

i worked as part of residential/student life for a few years, and i really enjoyed it. i liked being part of student life, and planning fun events, educational events, and talking to the students and admins about improvements and such. i liked it, but professionalism is the bane of my existence and is a big thing in academia where i was

aka ginger boosted

Hey yall, I really need help and am not sure what to do anymore

My wisdom teeth are very super impacted and they hurt and keep getting worse. And I also have cavities that I really need fixed. But unfortunately i live in the US I can’t afford $4000 for these essential procedures on my own

More info in my gofundme link below but if y’all could donate\boost\help in any way it’d mean a lot to me

instance admin announcement - tl;dr: Instance Closing on February 14, 2021 

Hey all

tl;dr - Too Many Cooks will be closing down on February 14, 2021. Everything will be deleted, so export things you care about before then. Masto has export tools in the settings to request a full archive of your account's content.

There's a few reasons for this, and things I probably should've done differently from the start (both from an instance organization standpoint and a technical standpoint), but there's nothing I can really do about that now.

I also, frankly, can't quite handle having an instance to administer on top of everything else going on, from a mental health standpoint. I also don't feel comfortable passing administration onto someone else, since I know I would still feel a responsibility for the instance, and doing so would not be trivial from an administration standpoint and I worry that trying to do that would put the instance in an irreversably broken state anyway.

So the instance will be closing down in one month, on February 14, 2021.

On that day, the instance's servers will be permanently deleted, so all of your data will be irreversably gone.

Thank you all for the fun times and amazing food posts. Thank you to the glitch-soc devs for adding the "automatic CW when posts federate out" feature, which I didn't even formally request, but they saw that I was interested in such a thing and added it.

Thanks again, y'all. This was such a fun place to hang out and I'd rather shutter it early than have something bad happen that I'm not equipped to handle, and have to shut down for those reasons.

I hope you'll understand.

Love y'all.
