Hi all! I'm Saara, she/they. I'm a Nordic neurodivergent bi/non-binary scientist, looking to find a healthier community than IG has to offer. Still figuring how this thing works though. But so happy to be here!

My special interests include books, lab science, coding, problem-solving, maps, space, mystery stories, films, social justice and more.

Boundaries: looking for friends/community, so no flirting pls. I would not get it anyway. Be kind and I will like you. 💖

Hello, dear human beans. I have a request considering asking questions: If you ask me one (which is very much ok, please do), give me the time I need to answer it. Asking me a question and erasing it before I can answer feels.. weird. I am slow, yes. I may be offline for hours, yes (sleeping is a hobby of mine). But your question is still valuable and it deserves an answer. Of course, you are allowed to erase your question, if you wish. But then again, we both could have learned something.

Dear cis people: put your pronouns in your bio, please.

White people don't get to decide what's racist.

Cis people don't get to decide what's transphobic.

Body-abled people don't get to decide what's ableist.

Straight people don't get to decide what's homophobic.

Neurotypical people don't get to decide what's psychophobic.

Thin people don't get to decide what's fatphobic.

Continue the thread. 🤗

highly recommend this doc “check it” which follows street kids in DC, some of who form or join gangs to survive. youtu.be/RnOCE5g-Mf0 @queermemes@gup.pe @leftistmemes@gup.pe @leftisttheory @sapphicmemecollective@gup.pe #

Normalise giving gifts that don't cost much or anything at all

Normalise gifts that didn't come from a store or a shop

Normalise non-reciprocation in gifts and not expecting anything in return

Normalise giving gifts at any occasion for celebration or just for the hell of it, not just a few times a year

Normalise generosity

an immune-compromised family friend contracted covid & we're very worried.

he takes care of his parents bt he's extremely vulnerable & doesn't have the money to afford care if his case gets severe. if u can donate anything it'd be so helpful; he basically raised his niece and done so much for his community & now he needs some help

you can donate money to his niece's venmo at: @shortybri

all money would be allocated to medical expenses + helping take care of his elderly parents!

good cw etiquette 101:

-content warnings can totally be used to shorten/title posts! they don’t have to be for sensitive content

-plz use CWs for posts with possible triggers like alcohol, food, self harm, mental health, drug use, etc- we also cw for eye contact in photos here (ec)

-plz cw your lewd/nsfw content! there are kiddos here as well as sex repulsed folks

-cw stuff that can fuck with screenreaders like large blocks of repeating words or emoji spam

thx for makin fedi a safer place!

Happy Solstice!
You may know that Santa Claus was modelled after Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of children. But did you know: he is also the patron saint of sex workers! The true meaning of Christmas is that Santa supports sex workers, and so should you.
