*holds up sign* Don't say 'accessible' when you mean 'step-free'!

Mostly just stop calling things accessible like it's a binary thing, like there's one thing that makes something either accessible or not. Definitely stop calling things "fully accessible" as that's a literally meaningless phrase. Oh, no, I take it back: what that means is "you can't trust anything this person/entity is saying about access beause they know so little they think something can be "fully accessible."

I didn't know it could be this good. This could have come in handy about 45 million times in my autistic life.

I got noise-cancelling headphones for the first time in my life and it feels like magic. :blobwitch:

Ableism and the Paralympics 

An ableism contest

"The Paralympics are supposed to be a celebration of the exceptional physical feats of disabled athletes from across the globe, yet as we approach the Tokyo Paralympics disabled people seem to be bracing themselves. Why? Simply put, the Paralympics are perhaps the only time that some people take an interest in disability, and that means an onslaught of ableism and inspiration porn is coming our way."

"Perhaps the most damningly ableist aspect of the Paralympics is that they exist at all. As it stands, disabled athletes are segregated from their able-bodied counterparts, competing several weeks after the main Olympics has closed, with significantly reduced coverage (and sponsorship, no doubt) in the media. The opening ceremony takes place in the middle of the week rather than at peak viewing times."

Almost 3 weeks of work. Got a salary today. It's going better than expected but I don't know how to escape the cycle of I'm either working or sleeping. :battery_low:

i am nonbinary, which means, instead of being a boy or a girl, i'm exhausted

Took some time and set up a space to aggregate and curate scientific communities and topics on #Matrix. It can be hard to find good, serious communities relevant to your interests, so this is my initiative to make it easier.

It has subspaces for natural sciences, #mathematics and computer #science (which also has a subspace for programming languages), as well rooms such as "Ask Science" and "Philosophy of Science".

For anyone interested, you can find the space via this link: matrix.to/#/!lBZPyclsQiWAwbHjT

Boosts are welcome. Would be nice if this could be a thing, especially given the experimental support for LaTeX in Element's composer it could be of some interest to scientific communities.

“One way to think of alternative text is to think about how you would read the page containing the image to someone over the phone, without mentioning that there is an image present. Whatever you say instead of the image is typically a good start for writing the alternative text.”

Question about nonsexual kink 

People who don't have sex and are also involved in kink/bdsm spaces, how did you first get involved? Especially for irl spaces
It seems, from the outside at least, that a lot of kink/bdsm stuff is seen as intrinsically sexual. I don't think it is and i have read people who write about it. But it seems so prevalent that it'd be hard to get into those spaces as someone who doesn't have sex.

It feels weird when art tutorials approach "how to draw boys!"/"how to draw girls!" as if they're different species. Certainly study why something looks feminine/masculine to you, but don't let it limit you! #arttips
