Heyo, I'm Jo. I'm a 30-something BSc Computer Science who just happens to be one of them trans (She/Her, btw).

I get (rightfully tbh) angry about the sorry state of today's software, construct things in meatspace (mostly containers and boxes) and dig into game files for fun and profit. Mostly just fun. I also like old computers and consoles. 💻

I also run this little patch of land that is my own personal Masto instance. It's not open for registration, I'm afraid.

Drugs (painkillers), homophobia, mocking fragile cis men

Drugs (painkillers), homophobia, mocking fragile cis men 

So, Poundland seem to be getting their ibuprofen from a different manufacturer now and the tablets are now pink.

I'm just getting mental images of grown adult men returning these and demanding a refund and generally giving staff their own migraines because they "didn't ask for gay tablets!" :blobnervous:

Right wing YouTube 

Fucking ew, YouTube just shoved a PragerU short in my face, of Kevin Sorbo whining that he got what he deserved for being a cunt.

uk news, bullshit 

truss is ideologically opposed to saving energy because it impinges on "freedom"

there's no such thing as morals, values can't be applied to reality, thinking about things and their consequences is anti-freedom

The final panel of today's Pilotside Chronicle seems aiemd squarely at virtually every artist..

transphobia, jkr, bad ipa 

The notorious children’s author shared this photo, which I’m told is of her, though I honestly can’t tell – #prosopagnosia

I’m so used to her anti-#trans bigotry that my main concerns here are with the #phonetics:

(a) the use of non-rhotic, diphthong-ridden RP for a Scottish person’s name

(b) the highly implausible pronunciation [kɘʊ] for the unstressed second syllable in ‘Nicola’

Fediblock, racism, homophobia, Yet Another Eris Account

#Fediblock

(Fixed because this isn't Disqordia Eris but rather Kiwifarms Eris - though as the instance is affiliated with beefyboys.win (which is a fediblock-worthy instance too) and considering the below screens, still worth blocking. )
