Observation about birbsite/masto elliot page reaction
I am in a bubble here, yet
While I was checking out Mastodon.social back in the day, there was an influx of LGBQTIA2+ humans. As a white male, I felt like I was learning a lot. In comparison to the abusive platforms, this place was more inclusive and I did my best to be an ally.
Today, everyone on birbsite seems to be congratulating themselves for Elliot Page. I haven't read a peep here. It's not news here because it is not an issue, perhaps?
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
