I was a little nervous when the edit feature went live on Mastodon, and I still think it would have been a bad idea on Twitter, but I was relieved to see it's only improved the Mastodon experience. Apparently this community is mature enough it can use edit in an entirely constructive way. I still don't trust this community with quote RT tho. Y'all're catty as shit

Ah the part of every party where the allos start making out and it gets boring. Heck

ableism 

Fucked up things to hear at an Auslan practice group: “if you want to say something, say it!” 🙄 immediately after I sign a reply to someone who is verbally speaking. And guy who said it is HoH! Internalised ableism much? 😡🤯

@LiamErven i need to read a printed book but I’m bad at reading because disability. I wish I could use a screen reader type of thing in it. I remember you said a while ago you had an app that could do that to read Xbox menus and stuff. Are there any iPhone apps you recommend for reading printed paper thru camera?

There's a plot hole with this Michael Jackson album, it's called Bad but it's actually good.

@noiob a bunch of my friends are on ohnomy.rocks instance. Could it be whitelisted? they're nice folx, with close ties to Cards Against Humanity staff and strong leftie politics 💙

Is there much disability community on mastodon? I'm informally studying AusLan Sign Language. I'm super interested in disability stuff. I have Autism and some sensory problems from that, and physical disability (EDS)

#ProTip If you have posts that are read by #ScreenReader users and you're using a hashtag with more than one word, capitalize the first letter of each word to trick the reader into saying the words correctly. It does not interfere with search results at all.
