Hi, I'm Ember! I'm moving from social.theliturgists.com , and I'm excited to be at weirder.earth because I'm extremely weird and proud of it.

I'm currently in college studying anthropology, which is a good fit for me, because as an Autistic person I feel like I'm constantly studying people and trying to understand a culture that is foreign to me.

I also love languages and linguistics and I'm currently trying to learn French and Arabic.

Probably gonna buy a bunch of stickers and see which ones I feel safe actually displaying

But there's some really cool ones

Hey nerds - preferably white privileged ones:

Do free labour for a Itázipčho person who wants to reconnect to the culture your culture stole me from:

I want to be able to use the lakotayapi keyboard layout from Linux (Peppermint, a Debian flavor): lakhota.org/keyboards/

How do I do it?

Don't @ me with "have you tried...?" or similar: I want a tested-by-you step-by-step of exactly what to do to add an equivalent layout to Linux, please.

Thanks!

(boosts welcomed)

The word "essay", and the literary-philosophical form it describes, were invented in the 16th century by Michel de Montaigne.

Montaigne was, in his time, an extremely successful and wealthy statesman. In his older age, and following the devastating loss of his "best friend" Étienne de La Boétie, Montaigne decided to retire and dedicate his time to writing. He came to call the discursive, entertaining, argumentative texts he wrote "essays".

One of these essays is titled "Of Cannibals".

dear white people,

it is possible to disagree with a person of color without resorting to racial caricatures.
