@junebug .hg …I guess this is the point where we declare that

.* we're not human

.hg (and +1 all the creatures who said that neither more nor less just different)

there's nothing magical or supernatural about us. we're just a bunch of inhuman animals sharing a vessel that was assigned human as birth, and that's totally normal.

.hg vantage: [noun] a particular point of view on a platform, as experienced by a creature or group, esp. that within a federation

> I keep seeing creatures outside of fedi complain about the culture and I don't get it. My vantage is great! All the creatures I follow are nice and the local timeline is always full of friendly fluffies.
> Ugh, YouTube screwed up my vantage again; the home tab is full of terf rants and ““cringe compilations””.

We might be selective about what we interact with and when. Please don't take it personally. We're just trying to take care of ourself and our loves right now.

Terran horribleness, abuse of power, respect, Tumblr quote 

> Sometimes people use “respect” to mean “treating someone like a person” and sometimes they use “respect” to mean “treating someone like an authority”
> and sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say “if you won't respect me I won't respect you” and they mean “if you won't treat me like an authority I won't treat you like a person”
> and they think they're being fair but they aren't, and it's not okay.

You don't have to educate me (ydhem): I'm curious, but I'm asking with the understanding that you're not obligated to explain yourself, and I won't be at all upset or offended if your answer is just a link to a resource or even a terse non-answer.

slap bass, yeah, I remember that from IRC

The universe is not transactional. You do not need to "earn" or "be worthy" of love and respect.

She's horseback riding!

Mental health -----, abuse / bullying / damaging the creatures we care about 

Excuse me while i cry for a little while.
Read it. Read it again. Recognize that we're hurting the people we care about and do our damndest to stop.

The inspiration for this was washing out some food packaging and wondering at the strangeness of some of the symbols moulded into the plastic. They're completely mundane, but some of them really look like they should be from a sci-fi film or something.
