@mental the irony is that I guarantee they are self-disclosing without even realising it. Wearing a wedding ring or other jewellery is self-disclosure, how we dress is self-disclosure, how we speak is self-disclosure. To pretend that they are neutral is ignorant at best and speaks to a level of unexamined privilege.

I am not neutral in the room, unless I understand and acknowledge my lack of neutrality I cannot work to compensate and accommodate for the needs of the client.

I am an advocate of ethical self-disclosure in the therapeutic space. The idea that practitioners can be neutral in a place where we are encouraging others to vulnerable is privileged, arrogant, and oppressive. We need to recognise and understand our own reactions, responses, and unconscious communication. Doing so allows us to be authentic and build a safer and more effective therapeutic relationship.

Oh dear. I've just been informed that collecting the names of every person on the planet for my naughty and nice lists is, and I quote, “a significant and wholly irresponsible breach of #GDPR “.
I'm going to hand out about 8 billion consent forms soon. If you could all get them back to me ASAP that would be appreciated.

It’s not cancel culture.

It’s consequence culture.

For Newbies - The Content Warning Option 

In a way, it's kind of liberating. Once you've given people the head's up as to content, you're free to get into the nitty gritty of it. I saw someone say it was a type of censorship - but I don't buy that labelling content is censorship. Offering people the option not to consume what you have to say isn't censorship.

I’m sorry, but this is yet another reminder to newbies here that the Mastodon culture encourages the use of image descriptions on photos you post. This is not Twitter, so please try to be more inclusive. There are a lot of visually impaired people on this platform and they would like to be included in all discussions.
Thank you.
How would you feel if I told you this was a superb picture?

Abigail Thorn’s latest Philosophy Tube episode about the state of Britain’s NHS Gender Identity service failings has earned over 800K views in the first week. Tonight at 8pm she’s streaming a talk about the scandal and how she made the show. #AbigailThorn

#Mastodon seems to have survived another wave of #TwitterMigration. It's now over 2 million active users which is like 10x (?) more than 2-3 weeks ago. Things sometimes slow down, but the network is up and running. This community-run federated thing is quite resilient, isn't it? Kudos to instance admins! 👏

A reminder that Twitter was not made as you see it today. At the start it was literally an SMS frontend. It didn't have concepts like threads, DMs, groups, privacy (ha!), blocking, muting or any of that crap. ALL THAT GREW ORGANICALLY - at first just as conventions, later adopted.

We will figure out how to use Mastodon. And some of those ways will be adopted officially (whatever that means!). This is our place. We'll shape it. Give it time.

I feel really uncomfortable seeing several toots about this being a place for ... Doesn't that downplay the challenges and trauma of being a refugee? Maybe I'm just being too sensitive.

It's joyous watching #Autistic tweeters revel in the longer character limit of this elephant app. Let your verbosity run wild! Infodump at will!

A gentle reminder to folks who are new to Mastodon. In solidarity with those in the disabled community who rely on screen readers, we ask that you:

* Add alt text/image descriptions when you post media
* Capitalize the first letter of every word in a hashtag #LikeThis
* Avoid emojis in your display name

UPDATE: So many great questions! Please check the replies to see if your question has been asked and answered ❤️

#StrongerTogether #Accessibility #AltText #Disability #Solidarity #FediTips

Wow okay came for the disabled community and staying for that plus the excellent ace presence here. This is the quickest I have ever 1) found other ace people on a site and 2) felt safe enough to be out in a space. So far this place is really passing the vibe check.

ACCESSIBILITY

If you capitalize each word in a multi-word hashtag, #ScreenReaders can read them as words. If, however, you leave all the words in a multi-word hashtag in lowercase (i.e., #screenreaders), they cannot. For #accessibility, please capitalize words when there's more than one word in a hashtag.
