mh, abuse history 

"Do your part" energy conservation plans, like turning lights off when you leave the room, are great for your energy bill, but their job as part of "lowering carbon footprints" is to deflect from the big corporations that actually use the vast majority of the power.

For example, the average US stand-alone home uses ~11,000 kWh per year.

The VERY MOST EFFICIENT roadside LED billboard uses ~61,000 kWh per year. That number rises to ~323,000 kWh at the top end.

meta: Now that we have @vulpineclub as The Face of the Admins, I’ll be making any further announcements from there and probably won’t keep checking this account.

(My personal account remains @mxsparks.)

PSA:

Shift + / opens up a list of all the keyboard shortcuts for mastodon.

Does anyone else have that thing where phoning up to tell someone "the thing you wanted has been done/delivered etc" is fine but phoning up to /request/ something is unmitigated hell

It's not every phone call, it's just the ones that start "sorry to bother you, please may I" that are a sissyphean task every time

(Tina Belcher voice) I am a strong, smart, sensual woman, and I am going to make the ever-living heck out of these phone calls that I need to make this morning

Here’s a survey about titles that should only take 3 minutes or so, for literally anyone who speaks English:

docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

It’ll end at noon UK time on Sunday 13th January 2019 at the soonest.

Every survey response, RT and boost is really helpful! Thank you. :)

@rey Thank you so much, Rey. For being here, for building this space, and for trusting us not to accidentally set it on fire. We’ll do our best.

Happy retirement. <3

Hey ,

This is my last message as an admin of vulpine.club.

It began as a weekend project, something cool to play with, to fill up time between jobs.

Then others showed up. And we became friends. And we became a community.

We built a decidedly queer space, atop radical acceptance and boundaries and consent and respect and love.

What started as a novelty became a safe space, a judgement-free place for self-exploration, for myself and for so many others.

This was the first community where I was Rey, 100% of the time. This was the first community where I've felt *normal* for being into the things I'm into, for loving folks like I do, for being _me_.

But at some point, it began to feel like v.c was usurping my identity. Being "Rey, the Vulpine Club admin" became awkward and uncomfortable. This isn't who I *am*... I am so much more.

I've also struggled with the conflict between having responsibility for the safety of this community, and being in personal intimate relationships with a substantial part of it.

So, I figure it's time to turn in my badge and pun, and leave things in the paws of the best admins, mods, and friends I could leave y'all with: Sariya and Clara.

I love you all. You are such beautiful and amazing critters. Thank you for being here with me <3

P.S. I'll still be around, you betcha

sometimes i feel like my gender is non-newtonian, like its fluid when im just pondering it or am.not focussing too hard, but if someone tries to invalidate it it immediately seizes up in a crystal of GIRL

definitely not real voice exercises, do not use
