Pinned toot

If you're at all interested in an image, I recommend checking the caption (in the web client, it should pop up on mouseover).

Sometimes it's just enough description for someone who can't see the image, but sometimes it explains what you're seeing or tells you why it's remarkable.

If you find your mastodon experience too political, too meme-y, too science-y, or just not interesting enough, choose who to follow more carefully. Unfollow some people who fill your timeline with boring stuff; it's not a personal judgement, and you'll still see it if one of your friends boosts their toot. And follow someone who posts the sort of thing you like. Check out hashtags from their cool posts.

Most of all, post the sort of thing you'd like to see more of!

Dogs are so good!

Humans pay more attention to words we know than new ones. Dogs apparently pay more attention to new ones.

"The researchers hypothesize that the dogs may show greater neural activation to a novel word because they sense their owners want them to understand what they are saying, and they are trying to do so."

This means dogs love us and are trying to figure out wtf we're talking about because they think we will like that and they want us to be happy.

TL, DR: this pride month, consider how hard it can be for trans men to feel proud, when "successful" transition feels like it has to aim at a place that nobody believes in the beauty and goodness of.

Help him see the goodness of being more male, even if that means confronting whether YOU can see it. Reclaiming good masculinity is a community effort.

"You are the Chosen One, whose task it is-"
"Does it pay?"
"-to... What?"
"This task, is it paid? Or is it for experience, exposure?"
"It is to save the world!"
"Cool, cool, so not paid. Are you paid?"
"We Solemn Guardians of-"
"Because if you are, I should be too."
"... fine."

The young orc adjusted the boar on her wide shoulders. She'd spent all morning tracking it - it was young and plump; a real treat!

From the other path came her brother; damp, baskets bulging with fish.

She growled. He growled back.

As if sensing an ensuing spat, their fathers burst out the door.

"Gifts, for EACH of us!" said Da.

"We're so lucky to be the parents of such generous children," said Pa.

The twins beamed, spat averted.

If there is anyone on the fediverse that has some recommendations for places to visit (not necessarily in New Zealand, but anywhere in the world) I'm all ears! I'd love to start planning for some traveling to different places
