I'm saving some posts to reply to in a longer format (with evidence + reproducible experience and links) about this current iteration of #FOSS not being inclusive (it isn't) or diverse (it really depends on how you define this now since people like to add things in here that twisted the original meaning to dilute the purpose of diversity).

But it's not incorrect nor invalid to say that #FOSS is _exclusionary_ by default (not by design) and that it definitely caters to a particular audience (people who have TIME to work, contribute or give to it). So for anyone to assume that it's a bastion of hope needs to really acknowledge that it's not - the most prominent forms of #FOSS surviving is through strong capitalist ideals (not quoting ESR but acknowledging that hacker != good for people, just good for them and others' wellbeing are a byproduct).

Someone on the GNOME LGBTQA+ BoF just mentioned that gitlab supports listing your pronouns in your profile - go to gitlab.gnome.org/-/profile and tweak the "Pronouns" field if you want!

Photographer friends, any good resources to learn about extension tubes and macro photography?

There was something in the water.

She gripped the edge of the boat so hard her hands cramped. Below, something stirred among the murk. Something fleet and strange and many-armed.

She should row away but it was large -- too large to escape.

A glistening tentacle, pimpled with suckers, burst out of the water and waved in the air a moment, tapered tip curling.

She stared up at it, eyes wide with terror.

It descended toward her face.

And very gently booped her nose.

Is there a good guide for getting started with digital music making on Linux? And information about getting started making music in general? My budget for learning materials is $0

For any trans people who need to hear this:

Your body is beautiful. You're worthy of being desired, if that's something you want.

Whether you choose to transition (and in whatever direction you want), and wherever you are in that process -- you're seen, you are believed, and I'm proud to be your sibling.

When you look in the mirror, you deserve to hear, "Hey, Beautiful." If you don't hear it in your voice, hear it in mine.

Your strength is incredible. You come from a long tradition of transgender people, stretching back to the earliest days of humanity.

Let the haters shout into the void. You don't need to. The Void already loves you. ✨​

Asking for financial help 

Hey folks, it feels a bit rude to ask again, but I’m still struggling to find work right now and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.
