I saw yet again a toot calling for solidarity for migrants, and I thought what a socially anxious translator like me could do in practice.

And I can always help with language.

So what if anyone willing to do the same showed their willingness, among with details what they're ready to do and in what languages, with the hashtag .

Feel free to boost as much as you like, and of course share your own language skills.

If you need help with or in , I can answer questions about language and provide short translations related to your life as a migrant for free.

You can ask in any A/B/C level language mentioned in my profile, although I may answer in English.

Note: I'm not licensed to do official translations.

Like how much of autistic people supposedly not understanding humor is literally just this and like, finding humor in taking things literally

Sometimes I joke by acting as if I didn't understand someone else's joke or sarcastic comment and carrying on the bit with absolutely no tonal indicators that I am also joking, and then people think I didn't get their joke!

And that's autistic humor

I think; other people do this too right?

I was looking through local house listings and saw a brand new single-family house with a car elevator to lower the holy cows to an underground garage

100 m from a trunk line bus stop, 500 m from a brand new tram line

and now i'm enormously angry here by myself

when did the working class suburbs around here become so gentrified?

I blame big oil for the current anti-vaxxer world. They laid the ground work of saying science is a lie ment to hurt you with thier global climate change denialism, rewarded politicians and pundits for toeing the line. It is a small step from not trusting climate scientist to not trusting medical scientist and a lot of people had been primed to believe it with whole systems of rewards for attacking scientist

“The fediverse is a racist place.“

Very true I think, but some people take it to mean “its the _only_ racist place“ or “is a _very_ racist place (compared to others)“ .

And then they argue: well no, other places are just as bad ; or: other places are even worse. (Which might be true, but missed the point!)

But I think many can (or should) agree on: “the white dominated fediverse - like all or most white communities - is a racist place. So we (white people) need to work to make it better. “

( I think this is what Black people and PoC have been saying for years - we should listen to them. )

Have you considered the Use Case where the User is angry with you, doesn't like you, doesn't like your Product (tm), thinks your entire socio-economic class are measurably making everything worse and accelerating a global slide into fascism, genocide and extinction, and is only sullenly interacting with your Product (tm) at the cracking point of the harsh whip of capitalism because they will lose the ability to eat if they do not

because you might find that's quite a large class of users
