This account is locked just so I'm able to filter out bots and possible hatefollows. Feel free to try following me without asking first, unless your account is or seems empty.

Don't expect me to be complicit with ableism, racism, cissexism, whoremisia, misogyny, amatonormativity, mononormativity, gender norms, fatmisia, classism, kinkmisia, queer exclusionism, neurodivergent exclusionism, anti-alterhuman hatred/"disbelief" or respectability politics.

I filter out most "casual" slurs.

Hi, I'm Aster and here's my ! ()

I'm a white Brazilian (aroflux, demisexual, ply, lichtgender, intersex), I'm , and this is my personal account so I guess it'll have a bit of everything.

I'm the admin of a queer instance aimed at Portuguese speakers at @Aster, I complain about tech at @Starry and I talk about queer stuff at @Stardust and videogames at @A.

I was at @comet before.

Argentina Formally Recognizes Nonbinary People, a Latin American First

Argentines no longer have to be identified as female or male on their national identity documents, the latest step in President Alberto Fernández’s push for gender equality.

Gender: X will be "offer as an option" on passeport, national ID doc, etc.

I really enjoy taking photos from airplanes

I am looking for LGBTQIA+ people doing reverse-engineering to interview for a podcast series.

− From any fields, any discipline, not only computer hardware / software
− hardware and software practices are welcome
− I like quiet, calm, smooth atmospheres for those kind of interview
− I'm not looking for rockstar
− no TERF
− It is within the framework of a program of exploration and non-academic research (NGO)
− It's audio-recording
− It's remote synchronous recording (mostly using bigBlueButtom)
− we submit the draft to you before distribution/publication of the episode
− this is not a paid interview
− It's for public podcast series with content under free open source license

if I missed something you want to know: please DM me.

offer of free tarot readings :boost_ok: 

it is the full moon (yesterday actually and I guess that around here) and as tradition (established by myself) it's time to offer free tarot readings.

usually I do it to portuguese speaking people but so very little people showed interest so I'll be trying to to this over here too.

if you have anything to ask the cards, fire away and I'll pull a card for you and try my best to answer it! anybody is welcome to ask about mostly anything regardless of you believing in it or not. the only hard rule is that it's a question per persons unless I still have some "bandwidth" left but then I'll let y'all know!

just send me a dm or if you don't mind me answering publicly a message. thanks! :boost_ok:

Self care, research on QAnon, advice ask 

Have any of y'all done sustained research on hate groups?

What are your tips for self care during this.
Going to be working on a book around QAnon, and I've never worked on a project like this. I suspect I'll need self care, and that it might be a bit different than my self care for dissertating and working

it's part of a series of projects launched yesterday showing the outcomes of the Artists + Machine Intelligence grant program, which you can learn more about here: experiments.withgoogle.com/ami
