Given that I live in the rare time and place I can safely do so, I should do more gender things. Get that haircut I have been wanting to get but which I have somehow worked up in my head to be this huge and intimidating life change. I have literally had the same hair my whole life which is "not cutting my hair" because then I tell myself that how my hair looks is my hair's business and none of mine, certainly not my decision

I just read Stone Butch Blues and it was very good but hard to read

Who would you rather support? You're welcome to boost this poll.

I've been thinking of cutting my hair and I'm a bit afraid. I've always had the same hair and it's gendered in a way I don't like but also I have learned how to be invisible with this hair and I am afraid of becoming more visible

In the United States, we need fewer cops. And we need far more Bigfoot. We can make America Sasquatch Country again

Having a slight panic attack because I read up on the citizenship application process and what if I get an immigration official who is one of the people from nextdoor who believes that bicycles are a form of socialism

amazing how you can get arrested for being in a public place because you aren't sitting in a sufficiently expensive metal box while doing so

actually for some reason I saved these files as a jpeg you pretty much have to print them out and fold them for it to be legible though

actually can I just attach arbitrary files to my toots

I need to set up a website for my bike stuff so I can post my zine instead of just printing it out and taping it to slow street signs which is also cool but limits the geographic distribution

wow somehow people are busy on a Sunday afternoon and are not free to drop whatever they are doing right now to figure out how to organize an action

Alfred Twu's Northern California combined zoning map shows how easy it would be (geographically) for the Bay Area to be super well served by mass transit. sites.google.com/view/alfredtw

All the built-up areas are linear, rarely more than five miles wide. That makes biking and buses plenty adequate for cross-axis travel.

Frequent, grade-separated rail along each corridor (widely-spaced stops). Bike lockers, bikeshare at each station. Buses in medium/high density areas. Boom, done. We don't need cars.

People in LA Took it upon themselves to paint crosswalks at dangerous intersections around schools and parks

Then the other day the city brought heavy equipment to grind them out to remove the paint

Can anyone help me understand how people see this shit happen and don’t become anarchists

Also I think only grandmas should be allowed to operate any sort of heavy equipment from here on out

I think this is now basically my private alt account for my Twitter because all the people who I worry about reading my Twitter will not figure out Mastodon, but I want specific people from Twitter to follow me here too

I have not read my SF politics Twitter this week and it has been a good break but I think when I am physically in the city it is really useful in finding out important things quickly

One thing that's nice about a vacation relatively close to home is that I don't feel as much pressure to wring every last drop of fun out of it and can relax a bit

some guys planted a little garden in the middle of a sidewalk where some bricks were missing, with flowers and a little picket fence.

But then when the guy that planted the garden saw a news crew asking people about the unknown guerilla gardener, walked up and said he applauds "whoever did this"

fucking legends

I've been wondering if maybe I am actually asexual (in addition to being aromantic) but then I saw this girl with a distinctly queer haircut at this combined bike/coffee shop fixing bikes and you know maybe it's just been a long pandemic and I haven't been getting out much
