So, #introduction :
I'm the primary admin (there are/will be others) of a new instance, thebigeasy.space, that is primarily meant for New Orleans Birdsite refugees. I'm a long time software engineer and Mastodon/#fediverse fan. Definitely #antiracist , #lgbtfriendly , #antiTERF , #antimisogyny. Significant Ashkenazi ancestry, so mouthy (but respectful) Jew alert.
Feel free to follow for tech talk, social critique, New Orleans issues, etc.

How rampant Victorian Britain drug use was. Everyone did them, regardless of the social class. People consumed coca, mescal, cannabis, laughing gas, alcohol, opium and later on injecting also morphine and heroin. There was no moral condemnation regardin...

Gun violence, white supremacist, mass shooting in Buffalo
I am heartbroken. I am enraged.
Ten lives were taken simply for shopping-while-Black. Ten lives were stolen by a white supremacist, radicalised by 4chan, 8chan& people like Fucker Carlson. So deranged, that he wrote a manifesto, loaded up on body armour & guns to drive 200 miles and shoot 13 people just because they were black. So bold that he wore a camera to live stream it on Twitch. AND of course, because he's white, he was taken in alive.
This is a hate crime. This man should never be allowed to step a foot outside of prison for the rest of his life.

A friend of a friend had to terminate at 24 weeks because her fetus was anencephalic - the fetus had no brain other than a brainstem that was keeping the heart beating. The baby would have been incapable of hearing, vision, speech, locomotion, etc. The parents were devastated - they had very much wanted this baby and had tried for years to get pregnant. All their hopes and dreams came crashing down in an instant. What conservatives are saying is that she and the baby should have been forced to endure that experience, and the child's older sibling had no right to have their parents not be consumed with the horrible situation for months before it came to a tragic end.
Worse yet, state abortion restrictions aren't the main driver of lower abortion rates. So all of the GOP hoopla does nothing, as usual.
