Your semi regular reminder that labels are meant to aid understanding, not dictate behavior

If someone or something doesn't fit a label exactly right then it is the label which is the wrong not the person or thing

Would anyone on here who reads braille mind giving me a little advice? I don't, but I'd like to make tactile visualizations of things like the black hole picture and want the labels to be intelligible. Thanks! Boosts welcome.

So I have recently come back to Mastadon (mainly and I'm looking for more people to follow.
Specifically looking for people interested in:

#laboratory / #laboratory_science

And like pretty much anything else similar to the above. So if you toot a lot of things related to the above I would greatly appreciate if you retoot, favourite or reply to this.

I found out about this site you can connect to Goodreads some people might like.

The basic premise is 2 things
1- check stats (you can see a gender divide in what you read. It did NOT work for mine though, and obviously gender binary is bullshit), and if you want like, ethnicity, you're not getting that.
2 - What I wanted more- put in your zip code, select your library, and see which books are on overdrive.

Some of you may get use out of it.

2. The most harmful thing someone I loved ever said to me was, "if you don't know [what you did wrong], that's the whole problem." And I'm autistic so eight years later, I'm still perseverating on it.

Don't ever fucking do this to someone; tell them, every time, explicitly, what you are hurt about. It took me years to re-center my self-image and not think there is something unidentifiably and innately wrong with who I am as a person.

Give us a chance to self-correct.

Does anyone else feel like having their own colourful sketchy portrait done? :bob_ross:

BookToot Club

A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.

Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.

Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.

Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.

This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.

Thanks for stopping by!
