Pinned toot

If you're new to Mastodon, don't hesitate to ask questions. I'll try to answer some in advance.

Let's assume you've created a account. Now, let's move on to how you can post (here it's called tooting, which is no sillier than what Twitter, aka the birdsite, calls it).

You can use Mastodon's website on a computer or mobile device. If you'd rather use an app, you're in luck, as there are several apps for Mastodon. These are the recommended ones.

Hello, fediverse! I’m Natasha, one of the moderators of I like democracy and not living under tyranny, among other things. You may have seen me on previous instances, but this is where calls home now.

Conservatives have time and time again proven themselves to have no hesitation or doubts about harming marginalized groups. Their blatant disregard for the mental well-being of transgender youth is disgusting. It's time to vote them all out of office.

Pink News: "Teachers should be forced to misgender trans kids unless they have ‘permission’ from parents, right-wing think tank suggests":

'Messaging today drives legislating tomorrow. Although symbolic today, voting now improves the odds of these bills becoming law later if Democrats regain control of Congress and the White House. Those messaging bills lying in the Senate graveyard today are likely to rise from the dead.'

Let's make sure that happens in November.

Symone Sanders, a senior adviser to Joe Biden, is the youngest member of his inner circle and the highest-ranking African-American person on his campaign staff. She has become, for a host of reasons, a critical figure in this presidential race.

Symone Sanders Bet on Biden, and Herself


@NatashaRomanoff @TonyStark
The real patriotic thing to do is to stay home and follow wearing a mask and socially distancing.

@TonyStark I'd like to remind the people who have given up and are going about their business again that this is why we stayed home from March until June (and why many of us are still staying home now). Most of Europe (with exceptions), Asia (same), Canada, Australia, and New Zealand flattened their curves by respecting health agency directives and stopping contact with most others. Many here who stopped seem to have just picked right back up, ruining it for we who are listening to reason.

@TonyStark Like other things happening right now, if not for yourself, think of other people. Then show up and vote. Vote all Republicans out.

This decision was 5-4.

This situation didn't have to be this way, either. Trump got handed 2 SCOTUS picks. Let's not do that again.

Supreme Court temporarily blocks court order that cleared the way for expanded vote by mail in Alabama due to Covid-19:

From Joe Biden

"Donald Trump has called himself a "cheerleader" for the nation. But we don't need a cheerleader — we need a President. One who will:

- Lead by example
- Take responsibility
- Tell the unvarnished truth
- Listen to the experts and follow the science"

All my mom's relatives live in South Dakota and I am not happy about the fireworks display or his visit - "But concern about the coronavirus risk and wildfire danger from the fireworks, along with protests from Native American groups, will also greet the president."


Trump and the GOP are leading the country and many states into ruin.

The UK is in equally dire straits.  

Germany, NZ, South Korea and other countries not so much because their governments basically work, people act (mostly not entirely) for the greater good, and the countries are led by smart people.

@TonyStark Talk to even one individual who is putting their own life on the line in a hospital. These people don't care and won't until it happens to them.

There is no empathy and it is coming straight from Trump. If you care at all about other people, you'll help remove him.

@TonyStark I've never been so mad. People won't listen to medical advice and for what? To prove some stupid point?
Would they turn down cancer treatments now for their family members if Trump said so? It is a

@TonyStark It’s Independence Day weekend and we have to win it all over again from ignorance and cruelty.

@TonyStark The good news is that there will be no second wave of Covid19 this fall. The bad news is that we’ll still be in the first wave.

Every Republican must go.

This didn't have to happen. It wouldn't have happened if we'd had national leadership that put human lives ahead of personal political concerns. It wouldn't have happened if so many Republican governors hadn't acted as a Trumpist cult followers and rushed to throw open states without regard for public health consequences.  

We were and are utterly without leadership and every single person will suffer as a result.

Please do something to change this in November.

@Dagny @TonyStark what gets me, at least where I am, is not that they think they are invincible but they don't care. If their gym is closed or their drive is slowed by a protest or any other minor inconvenience they will scream bloody murder and those things better be there for them regardless of who it kills as long as it isn't them themselves.

The Republican/Libertarian motto of "I got mine, fuck you" is killing this country. Literally.

Thursday was a sad sad record for the United States.

Note how many of the worst states are GOP controlled.
