Got auto-muted for 24h by for replying "You're trash" to some transphobe who said they identified as a wet teabag.

I reported the comment to Facebook since it's a clear violation of their community guidelines. Their example for "dehumanizing" is that you can't compare people from a certain ethnic group to insects or animals. Then surely comparing trans people to wet teabags warrants a mute, right?

The dystopia is real.

this is a call in, not a call out- folks who are new to fedi: moving from platforms like instagram that do not prioritize accessibility to this platform requires some serious unlearning around convenience and comfort.

it may not be as easy or comfortable to post images or posts here as it is on corporate media, but this is a space where accessibility is prioritized.

take the time to learn how to cw and caption. it’s a valuable skill and a valuable practice in mindfulness.

photo caption/alt text tips on Mastodon 

When you add a photo to a post, you can click "Edit" in the top-right of the photo preview to add a full alt-text description of the photo for screen readers. You have 5000 characters for that, too. Mastodon mobile apps generally also include access to this function.

In an earlier thread, I wrote briefly about trans people in medieval Europe, and discussed some of the main issues when studying the medieval history of trans people.

Today, if you'll indulge me, I want to spend some time discussing a single person in detail. I want to talk about the way she's been written about, and about her and what she can teach us about life as a trans person 600 years ago.

This is the story of Eleanor Rykener.
