#mastodon uses alsoKnownAs for account migration, but it's not officially in the #ActivityStreams vocabulary. Does anyone have opinions on a formal definition and adding it as an extension?

I'm not asking for anything in particular, I just want the people reading this, my followers to know a little bit more about me, even if this story and the struggle for freedom that goes with it, doesn't define me on this sole basis but is certainly a huge - 4/5

a situation where you have the sword in your hands, you have the courage to fight and you have the inner qualities to stay until the end..

Often I thought I would abandon, I would choose the easy road and stay silent but the prospection of having to look myself in the mirror and in the eyes of my daughter, without having done anything, was beyond the worst things that could happen.

For what it's worth, when I entered the battle in 2015, I had no idea of what I was getting into, I - 2/5

In the next two weeks, I'm going to enter the Pleading part of a judicial case that started in 1997.
Most of you reading this have no idea what I'm talking about, let's just say it's a dark, sad, resilient story that is the foundation of my existence but also the reclaiming of said foundation of life for the future of what's to come.

You know sometimes you have to rise against your own monsters.
