Yes, I will be wearing my "Proud Dad" tshirt to help my son's ex move out of the apartment. Her parents may not respect her gender and pronouns and name, but I do.

Can you still get balsa wood airplanes with the plastic propeller powered by rubber bands? I could use one of those.

news, USpol, Roe v. Wade, background (maternal mortality, white supremacy) 

A bit of context on likely societal impacts of forced childbirth. The U.S. has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the industrialized world, and unlike other wealthy countries, the rate is rising, not falling: nytimes.com/2016/09/22/health/

"According to the CDC, black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women’s health…The disproportionate toll on African Americans is the main reason the U.S. maternal mortality rate is so much higher than that of other affluent countries." Like many racial disparities, it cuts across educational and income levels, too: "A 2016 analysis of five years of data [from NYC hospitals] found that black college-educated mothers who gave birth in local hospitals were more likely to suffer severe complications of pregnancy or childbirth than white women who never graduated from high school." propublica.org/article/nothing

Town.

I get that we are all on edge right now.

I am trying my best to be understanding about the emotional content we all possess today.

Please maintain our standards and CW your USPOL.

I promise to boost your signal if you do, and you will reach far more eyes this way.

CWs get you better engagement, and that is exactly what we need right now.

It has to be considered that this leak was on purpose by this court to distance the anger they knew it would generate a bit farther out from the midterms, with hopes that some of the anger dissipates before November.

Don't let that happen, either way.

The original Roe v. Wade decision also was leaked to the press:

It would be great if Ron DeSantis would address a real problem in my state instead of non-existent ones over and over.

He had a chance to do something it and passed. Too busy being angry, I guess.

He doesn't do one thing that makes Florida better.

I do get a lot of questions from people about being on a certain instance(server) and if that matters for communication with their friends on different instances.

Short answer: No!

You can see Mastodon / Fediverse communication like email! For example, if you are on mstdn.social your FULL handle will be:

"@handle@mstdn.social" and if you are on mastodon.social your full handle is:

"@handle"

You can use this "full handle" to search or communicate with people on other instances.

Has anyone used for their ? Not comfortable being in the "everyone's hands in the same popcorn bowls" group settings since plague and such.

Re since it has been a few years.
Stopped playing D&D at 3.5. Picked up Pathfinder, but have been sequestered due to plague awareness.
Mostly rpgs on Xbox, Switch, and PC to scratch the itch, but only solo as internet speeds are not great.

I will play vicariously through all of you.

Thank you, in advance.

Thankfully, I also followed myself between here and mastodon.social. Is that even necessary? It bread crumbed me back here, so there is that.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and they're like "wow this is delicious and affordable" and I'm like "thank you for supporting my small independent business"
