I'm Dan. Originally from the UK, I now live (on stolen land) in Kingston, ON.

I love listening to music (I have an eclectic taste, but metal and classical are my true loves), reading, and watching motorsport!

(I work from home as a computer toucher.)

Here are threads of my notes (mostly quotes) from reading some theory.

Are Prisons Obsolete? by Angela Y. Davis:
Comrade by Jodi Dean:
The End of Policing by Alex S. Vitale:

(I'll reply to this with new ones as I start them.)

Politics-wise, I'm a lefty, and inclusion is very important to me. I'm currently trying to work out what that means for me, both in my online life and my offline life. (I deal with a lot of anxiety, which makes working that out much trickier!)

Related to politics, this Mastodon/hometown instance is my first foray in to the world of the decentralised web, which I think is going to be very important over the coming years.

Another very important part of my life is my ginormo-dog, Colt! We rescued him earlier this year. He's a ~4yo Great Dane and very friendly!

(The rescue named him Colt because he snorts like a horse when he is annoyed about something. They were not wrong to do so!)

this is one of the most egregious examples of this shit ive seen in a while

hi! got recc'd here bc i need a wider net of community support. i'm in my sixth year of homelessness that has been exacerbated by unsafe support networks, falling into extreme poverty, covid, abusive ex-partners who housed me, having to flee physically violent ppl, and whole mess of other issues commonly faced by homeless trans women.

i am currently stuck in the southern US. it was supposed to be a transitionary situation, but all of my options for safe longer-term housing fell through and now i'm left struggling. i've been able to keep a string of cheap motels/bnbs going for the last three months with only a few nights out on the street, but it's been quite the effort to maintain. rly trying to stay off the street as i've faced numerous episodes of
violence and threats. hoping to get help here.

pls refer to the flyer for needs. ty for reading. 💜

i am against both china and the united states asserting power on the south china sea, much like i'm against both mexico and japan asserting power on the gulf of mexico

no, see, i'm against imperialist exploitation both when the giant empire that has military bases all over the world and has spent the last 200 or so waging constant wars of aggression does it, and when any country that doesn't have any of that does

thinking about becoming a "feet" guy. not into feet, but it would just be nice to be part of a community
