hey! if you've followed me just recently, I came to queer.garden because my previous instance, queer.party, was having bad lag issues! it's back functional now. I'm gonna keep this as an alt/backup, and I should continue to receive notifications here. if you like my posting, please follow my older account @byttyrs!
I'm friends with a lot of people who reacted really hard and fast to ehjovan.com, and I would really prefer it if we collectively took our foot off the accelerator pedal and found the brake
personally, I think it's fine for other people to use the Internet differently from me, and it would be graceful to give new Internet neighbors awhile to, say, figure out how the CW function works.

the bad thing: i receive hate and criticism from people who are anti-shitposts and people who are anti-discourse alike. its basically the same as being bisexual is what im saying
