Hoooo, Mastodon folks, it's been a minute.

What's up?

How is everyone surviving this plague? And all the quarantines and isolation?

I'm trying hard to find meaning, to take deep breaths, and to hug my pets.

Take care of yourselves out there. Stay safe. Wash your hands. And connect virtually with others, too.

non-graphic/generalized mention of sexual assault; reference to politics 

The whole Kavanaugh thing that has exploded in the (American) media is upsetting me so much. I literally can't stand it.

The tired rape-culture narratives: She's lying! We know she's lying because she didn't report it right after it happened! If the assault was SO horrible, then why didn't she go straight to the police?

The toll all this takes on all of us who are survivors is huge. I'm so tired of this. SO TIRED 😒

snowy morning
all alone a flower
even the shadows of mountains
tangled hair

all things
break the halcyon slumber
all alone a flower
the galaxy

Well hello, friends. The new semester is about to start and I'm here to share that even faculty get anxious about it. 😐

a day of haze
o snail
even among the stars

when i have gone away
this, that
below the ice

HALP I'm falling WAY behind in ... Somebody encourage me QUICK :pen: :page: 😐

in my old home
the last of the firewood
growling

I have a literal ton of work-related things to do, and I should be prepping for , so of course I wrote a blog post about erasure poetry and it's here:

On #TransDayOfVisibility it seems necessary to repeat: Trans rights are human rights, trans rights issues are human rights issues.

Trans women are women, trans men are men. And I stand with every trans person. Always.

Allright so, it's been raining for three days straight 🌧 🌧 🌧 and the only positive thing I can say about it is that the spring peepers are singing their little heads off, the cuties! 🐸 🌿 πŸ„

Hello folks πŸ„ 🌿

Today is day two of spring break -- I'm a college professor -- and it's a cold cold rain outside, just pouring, incessant.

I'm about to motivate to do some story planning for and I'm super excited about my project. ❀️

What are your plans for putting :pen: to :page: today?

Seriously though, please try to not bring your shitty behavior with you from Hellbird and Facebutt.

Use this as a new start. Learn to see nuance. Know that there may be answers already to your question to someones post (click on it to read the rest of the context).

Just be mindful of others and help out with some of the emotional labor.

We have a lot of spoonies here, but this isn't the only reason.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that as soon as a marginalized group develops words to describe their oppression, their oppressors will label those words β€˜slurs.’"

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
