How to pronounce my name:

Siem is a difficult to pronounce name in English but you might want an idea of how if sounds.
Try pronouncing it like 'seem'. As in: 'you seem like a kind person'.
Maybe shorten that 'ee' sound a tiny bit while lifting the pitch of it ever so slightly, though that's not necessary.

personal boundaries and ineraction info 

I already have a pinned toot about interaction on my main account @human_dude but I'll repeat and rephrase the most important stuff here.

- I'm here to be my weird, open, and sincere self. And to make all kinds of digital -ships (however we relate is cool in it's own way).
- Don't go saying or doing sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist things or anything like it. That's a block (unless I know you mean well, in that's case I'll say something about it - I hope you'd do the same for me).
- It may take me a while to respond, like in general.
- I think I can be a little socially awkward, bear with me.
- I'm dyslexic and English isn't my first language; I make spelling mistakes. I'm insecure about this so please ignore them.
- If you make your boundaries and needs explicit, I will respect them (and I'll try to even if you don't).
- Generally don't involve me in anything sexual, please.

If I toot followers-only that means I don't want my toots shared or boosted around, and I don't want strangers to reply.
If you can see a toot that means I value you, your knoweledge and perspective, so feel free to respond (unless I specifically say I do not want interaction) 💙

About flirting:
Showing affection and warmth is very welcome, and it's something I like doing too. Being in the fediverse for a while has made me realize that I can feel a lot of warmth towards people on here.
Yet turning that into something sexual is not really me, and not something I want. Neither is trying to develop something romantic. So assume I don't want that.
At the same time the relationship anarchist within me is fine with everything that develops between me anyone on here - let's use our words to talk. Like I've had people flirt with me here while I was just being nice, I didn't like it. Please use your words to ask if that's okay first.

Thanksgiving 

"All of us, regardless of background, should be horrified by genocide, as much as we would be of other facts that we don’t shut down discourse on through self-indulgent projections of innocence, like the world being round despite the fact that some insist is not so. We should all be enraged."

- this a quote from the linked article

Thanksgiving 

Anyways, I'm not from "America", but if you're celebrating thanksgiving. Consider maybe not next year.

The holiday is tied up with genocide and cannot be uncoupled from that. I don't think it is something to celebrate.

I'm in a good mood that's going to be hard for anyone to disturb 😌✨

A fun, happy little Mastodon/Hometown instance.
