Hi! I guess I'm supposed to do a re-#introduction now that I'm on the new instance.
I'm a Sacramento-based photographer/designer/visual artist, currently working in marketing. My portfolio is mostly street photography, urban landscapes, and glitch. Glitch workflow includes GIMP, PS, Audacity and hex-editing.
I'm also a husband, proud dad of a trans kid, Marxist with anarchist sympathies, vegan, Buddhist, and hard music enjoyer.
Mostly I post humorous garbage with rad pol characteristics.
hunting, meat, firearms, factory farming
I'm supposed to be asleep because I'm gonna be up early in the morning, but I can't sleep 'cause tomorrow I'm either gonna do Something Really Not Dan, or I'm gonna become a vegetarian.
I know too much about modern factory farming, see. It's not like when we were kids, a farmer and a tractor and a few fields full of cows. It's worse than hell. We've made a hell for animals here on earth and hidden it away so we don't have to look at it before we eat them.
I can confirm my account was suspended after Elon Musk was told about me by far-right extremists who have tried to get me murdered numerous times. I was also placed on the Nazi-made "antifa" list that is being used by bots to mass report accounts that oppose fascism. My last tweets highlighted the plot to remove my account by abusing the report system as well as certified evidence that Andy Ngo was knowingly friends with famous pedophile Amos Yee. I also highlighted the Nazi past of Gays Against Groomers founder Jaimee Michell. I will not stop my work of exposing fascists despite the organized campaigns to silence and assassinate me.

With Twitter's collapse, funders should start helping build up federated discourse: supporting development of better security, of moderation aids, of proposals for affordances welcoming to Black Twitter and other communities. Stop thinking top down. Start thinking emergent.
Stop thinking about how to help newspapers. Start thinking about how to help communities and culture speaking for themselves. This is a place to start.
I want to follow new people, but please stop putting "twitter refugee" in your bio. Or derivatives of diaspora.
If you live anywhere in the US, EU, Australia, UK, etc., your country is caging people, putting folks on leaky boats or leaving them in danger even as our climate policies & warmongering push ever more people away from their homes.
Also, everyone heard the joke already. So if you don't care about being tacky and racist, your joke is tired and boring.
hey its actually not a compliment to me when you tell me your favorite books are Asian books or you only read Asian books. its actually sometimes intimidating considering the history of orientalism and the way that Asian women have historically been depicted in art for consumption only.
this isn't to say you can't enjoy our art by any means but maybe ask yourself if you say that about any other peoples?
