Hi, I’m Joshua. I’m an #ActuallyAutistic adult. I’m very shy, socially anxious, and introverted. I enjoy #VideoGames and spending way too much time on social media advocating for the many causes I believe in. Some of those causes are: human rights (including autistic rights and sex worker rights), privacy, and child sex abuse prevention (I volunteer for the child protection organization @ProstasiaInc as social media manager).

As an unemployed autistic there are a number of ways you can support me (and my advocacy)

You are not entitled to my time and/or interaction. I will absolutely without hesitation block (or mute) bigots, harassers, and otherwise unpleasant people. Sorry not sorry!
It is proven! I am joshuacasey on Keybase: https://keybase.io/joshuacasey/sigchain#c70d8b76b6be58b694eb52b49746c5dab5782e39abb487440e57a4c3cfa7e8360f
Thanks to higher character limits and the growing number of people who are moving to Mastodon and deleting their Twitters, some of our social media content is only available on Mastodon. Follow us there to make sure you don't miss anything! https://qoto.org/@ProstasiaInc
To all Mastodon-admins: seems like there's an attack on all instances by troll accounts. Servers get slow because of it.
They use thousands of subdomains of activitypub-troll.cf. My 'pull' queues skyrocketed.
I now blocked the domain activitypub-troll.cf and all is back to normal. Please check if you're hit too.

"I know how consent works in real life. I know how to get and give consent. I know that children can’t consent because they haven’t matured enough to be able to do so (nor do I have any sexual attraction to minors)." https://buff.ly/3fYOkOY
What @Google didn't mention is that not only do they falsely flag drawings, but their AI falsely flags medical images https://buff.ly/3Df8hsA

We look at which sites users are adding to their Twitter bios, posting to their friends about & downloading apps for.
Please do boost this, and love to hear any comments or feedback on it!

@enbrown like he just assumed that old twitter must have been operating in bad faith, but here he is living their reality. Like you said: moderation is complicated and it's impossible to get it consistent and a lot of situations just don't even have a right answer at all
EU residents shouldn’t have their private messages scanned. Let’s say no to #ChatControl. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2022/10/eu-lawmakers-must-reject-proposal-scan-private-chats
been seeing a lot of hype and fundraising around #ProjectMushroom and was pretty disappointed to see this.
How can you say you're "safe for work" then say "sex work is work" then say "no nudes"
Please let 🐦DeanBaker13 back on Twitter so we can explain to him why he is completely wrong about Section 230 ;-)
QT ceprdc: We are concerned about today's sudden and disturbing temporary suspension of CEPR Senior Economist Dean Baker’s Twitter account.
Hear from 🐦DeanBaker13 on what happened, and read CEPR's statement on the increasing trend of banning accounts that criticize the company’s new owner.
As hate groups continue to disguise their bigotry as efforts to protect children, Prostasia's role as a child protection watchdog has never been more important. If you want to support this important work, consider becoming a member.
To be clear, this does not mean “no content moderation.” At all. That would be a disaster. It means content moderation should happen at the platform level (think: Facebook, mastodon, discord, Twitter) not at the infrastructure level (think: Comcast, cloudflare, PayPal, Tucows)
