We LOVE image captioning here. We are very pro captioning. It can be hard to get used to doing so on a regular basis. I highly recommend following @PleaseCaption
This bot is very non intrusive and will just DM you if you forget to add captions. If you do, you can just delete-and-redraft and add captions without losing any of your info!
(You can find "Delete and Redraft" under the ... icon on your toots.)
I just want to see a girl save a cute boy and fall in love, presented in earnest and not just as a joke or an idea
I don't care about a "strong woman who needs no man," i think girls should be able to indulge in this kind of sexual/power fantasy rather than be expected to rise beyond it
I think we don't see it not because we don't want a girl to save someone but because we're afraid to see boys in feminine positions complete with all the trappings of the role
General assumptions about blindness, dog guides, let's see if you can figure out the other implications
PSA: Yes, I'm a blind person. Yes, i like dogs. No, I do not have a dog guide. No, dog guides are not the perfect solution for every blind person. Besides that, the doctor won't clear me for one until they declare me in remission. It was my pleasure to share with you this information.

Talking About Microsoft Word and Adding Alt Text

Why Adults Read Young Adult Fiction (And Why That’s Okay)
It depresses me that this argument ev
Hey Fedi, question: I really dislike titles, and a form is requiring that I provide one. I don't mind "Mx" and "Ind.", but being cis, I don't want to appropriate something that is more used by enby and agender folks.
Do you feel like I'd be appropriating? Would you object to a (slightly non-conforming) cis dude using them? Do you know of a title that just really means "titles are stupid"?
I think it's silly for cis people to worry about appropriating stuff from trans people and/or non-binary people. Unless you're appropriating claims to oppression that don't apply (and tbh w/ gnc cis ppl they might actually apply) then go hog wild with your presentation, clothing, accessories, pronouns, titles, names, whatever.
We don't want to just create an expanded but equally rigid system of gender. We want everyone to be liberated from the strict gender system that controls our behaviors
