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.
I've put up with Gargron's incompetence for too long. Moderation is barely there, if at all. There's still a fucking TERF and an antivaxx chud roaming around there despite being reported over the past couple of days, and this isn't even the first time some chud has been reported and nothing done about it until further action gets taken by people outside of that instance.

since i moved instances, i lost my original post about this
my partner and i are having an extra chaotic time in TN with our plumbing and job searching, and we need help shipping our storage container with basically all of our stuff to us
we are running out of time to get this money and if we don't get it, we lose everything including our bed and several sentimental items
currently we need $900 to cover things, but this amount may increase as we also have to get a plumber out to our house and we aren't sure how much that's going to cost
i'm trying my best to get a job and to get commissions, but commissions have been slow this month and despite several interviews, i have yet to be hired by anyone
i'm not trying to be a bother, we are just 2 queers doing our best, please help us out if you can
Reminder that nothing is "just the way it is". It's the way we make it.
Having a whole process to determine whether or not somebody is allowed to exist in a different country isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can undo it.
People starving despite there being enough food isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can change it.
Your quality of life being determined by how much money you inherited isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can get rid of it.
"Culmination"? That was supposed to be "Combination".

"Learning is totalitarian!" - TERFs
Tired former CompSci student and destroyer of God, apparently.
TERFs are child abusers.
