psa please do not censor slurs or common triggers (e.g. sl*r). on fedi. you're doing more harm than good cause people who do not want to see these words at all can filter these words from their timeline entirely, but that will be bypassed if you censor.

Just a privacy reminder that instead of using #Google Translate, that you can use Deepl.com

It's not perfect, it's still a private company and isn't open source, but its translations are comparable and privacy-wise it's drastically better than using the Google panopticon.


#privacy #google #deepl #translation

that being said my Biggest advice for figuring out if u have adhd, which isn't even really advice for figuring out whether you have it but is instead for figuring out whether you should DO something about having it: ask urself if it hurts you. have you failed classes bc you couldn't do homework. have you been fired for being late. does your stuff get damaged bc u can't put it away. do relationships suffer bc u forget things/interrupt people/get very upset easily/etc.

linguistics opinionated opinion, sign languages 

Since we’re bashing linguistics today:

The more I learn about linguistics the more baffled I become that "at least one sign language" isn't a mandatory subject for all linguists from, like, undergrad year 1, and all skill paths like phon/phon, morphology, prag etc. aren't studied from the start using both sign and voice as first-class objects of study for contrast and comparison.

I mean I maintain that
widespread acquisition of sign languages by children of the general population – the way Australian Aboriginal and other peoples did it – would have a ton of advantages not just for inclusion, which would already be worthy the effort ofc, but for everybody else too; but, come on, us linguists? There's 2 fundamental types of human language and we base all our models and conclusions on 1?

It's as if you're training chemists and on first semester somebody briefly flashes them a periodic table for a minute and says "yeah so there are 3 types of elements, metals, metalloids and nonmetals. From now on we're going to focus on metals." And most of them, for their whole career, never think about silicon or sulphur again. They try to learn everything about bonding and reactions and molecule structure etc. using metals as the sole subject 99% of the time. Sometimes somebody who took the 8th-semester optional subject "General Introduction to the Most Common Nonmetal In This Area I" (where they do a crash run over reactions, molecules etc. now with 1 single nonmetal added into the mix) will point out "oh, actually hydrogen does not behave like that", then everybody else gets annoyed at this arrogant interrupty person who keeps bringing these weird nonmetal complications into the stuff they're already finding it hard to follow with metals only.

Putting my effort where my mouth is and my hand will soon be: anybody wants to learn Deutsche Gebärdensprache with me please send a note, I'm serious o/ maybe we could start with fingerspelling over jitsi or s/t :)

The last commission I did from last year...were these illustrations for a children's book! I worked with @/JessGunnAuthor from Twitter, and she wrote the story. Click the Behance link to see more pics! :)

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.

one final thing before i move on, i havent seen it yet but mocking Biden's stutter is ableist. he might be a lot of things and criticism is necessary for them but he won't ever hear you mocking his stutter

your friends who stutter (this includes me, there's a reason i don't speak aloud much) will hear that shit tho. if you're okay with looking your friends in the eye and explaining to them why their stutter impacts their morality then i mean by all means go ahead but otherwise fuck off

four years of fat jokes about trump never touched him but it sure did ruin the entire psyche of fat people being made to feel subhuman, unlovable, and inherently of lesser morals in a society that already actively does this on all levels of our lives.

break your habit of criticizing appearance and ability because otherwise i'm forced to assume you're just a hateful white noise machine, just here to fill in the background gaps with no comprehension of the topics at hand.

poll for Black people, boost ++ 

Poll meant at Black fedi users (newcomers and elders).

Would you be interested in joining a Black-only Masto instance* where older Fedi users could volunteer to give ✌🏾 trainings✌🏾 about online antiblack behavior, how to detect avoid/defend from them, sharing experiences + more general admin/moderation advice for people who would like to run Black/Indigenous instances?

*The instance would be completely defederated from the whole Fediverse, at least for the first weeks/months of its existence.

money (-), help needed 

Hey, I'm a disabled queer person who doesn't have a stable source of income. I try to do emoji commissions when I can but I really haven't had the capacity to finish the commissions I have or take more on atm and I'm really running out of money to pay for food and bills. If you could help that would be really appreciated:

(thank you so much in advance)
