Pinned splat

Cliterati is a lesbian-only platform open to radical feminists.

The difference is that we're not open to racists or homophobes.

This is because we choose to center lesbians of color, as well as detrans and dysphoric women.

It's simple.

HOW CLITERATI WORKS 猬囷笍

YOUR PROFILE
You can customize your picture, bio, and banner by clicking on your profile and then on the button that says "edit profile." You can also change these details by going to preferences on the right-hand panel, and then "profile." You can also lock your account to make it private here.

THE RIGHT-HAND PANEL:

Home: The home feed features accounts that you follow.
Local: Cliterati user posts only.
Federated: Posts from the other servers that we interact with. You can follow any user you see in the public timeline too!

You can also use the search bar above the compose box to search for accounts on other servers.

PRIVACY:

Like on Twitter, you can lock your profile and posts to followers only, or just lock certain posts! So, on these servers (servers in the "fediverse" like Cliterati), content that you post will appear on other servers! It's connected like a web! Hence "federated." But Cliterati has a feature you can toggle on where your posts will ONLY appear to Cliterati users! That's the "local-only" option. Local is us, Cliterati users! Though if someone visits your profile specifically they can still view these, unless you have these posts or your profile locked to "followers only." You can select local-only by clicking the three dots on the compose box. You can also choose to direct message someone from the compose box. You can toggle your post (called "splats" on Cliterati, and sometimes "toots") visibility by clicking the globe icon on the compose box. In addition, all posts you see will have icons in the top-right corner showing you if they're public, unlisted, a direct message to you, or locked to followers only! The globe icon at the top of a post means that post is public! You can apply the 鈥渃ontent warning鈥 feature from your compose box to hide your post and give users a warning, so they will have to click to see it. We have a "threaded mode" you can access by using the three dots on the box as well, this will help you easily create a thread.

Posts that are very long you will have to click the double arrow in the top-right to see, or click that arrow to collapse a post. You can upload an image, file, or video using the paperclip on the compose box.

There are a lot more features for you to discover from the "app settings" on the right-hand panel.

Cliterati also has two-step verification! To enable 2-step verification, go to preferences in the right-hand panel, then under account click "two-factor auth" to toggle this feature on. You'll have to download an OTP app like FreeOTP to generate a log-in token each time you log in.

INTERACTING WITH USERS

  • You "like" a post by clicking the star to favorite it.
  • A "boost" is the same as a retweet.
  • click the arrow to reply.
  • click the quotation mark to quote a post. Users will not currently be notified if you quote them.
  • click the little flag to bookmark the post.-click the three dots to copy a link, report a post, block or mute a user, or DM them.

THEMES
Want to make Cliterati pretty for you? You can do this by going to preferences, flavours, and then Glitch Edition and use the drop-down menu there to select a "skin" or theme for Cliterati. We currently have 8 themes, 6 of which are unique to Cliterati.

Themes unique to Cliterati:

-Cliterati (that's our classic blue)
-H4CK3R (a stereotypical "hacker" theme, easiest on the eyes and my favorite)
-DeepSea (a chill theme with an underwater vibe)
-Halloween (our Halloween theme)
-Forest (a very chill, relaxing forest theme)
-BLACKPINK (a theme featuring the women from the K-pop group, Blackpink)

Themes that come built-in:

  • High Contrast (pretty much a dark theme)
  • Mastodon Light (a standard light theme)

The "default" theme option is just high contrast (I think).

DO NOT select the Vanilla Mastodon flavour as that will break your interface and you will have to change it back, I'm working on removing this.

Security and privacy enhancements:

Local-only posts
Cliterati now features a "local-only" option for posts. Users of various fediverse platforms have voiced privacy complaints because they delete a post and it still exists on another platform. This way, your post is local-only and will not propagate elsewhere. Be careful using this for quote-posts as I'm not sure if they will show up elsewhere since we hacked that feature to work with glitch-soc. You can toggle this option on in the compose-box options. Be aware that appending the eye emoji at the very end of the splat may not make it local-only on Cliterati like it does on glitch-soc.

Misleading links are now highlighted, we now display the target domain of any link that does not unambiguously start with it, in order to avoid misleading links such as spoofing attempts. You can disable this from app settings, but why would you?

Hide your user follower count
You can opt to hide your own follower count from 鈥淧references > Other鈥 Settings. This will hide your followers, but still display other people's follower count.

Post visibility Markers
We now have visibility markers, this will allow you to see if a splat is public, or private in your timeline. The boost icon never changes, but goes dim when the button is disabled. Instead, a new icon was added to the right top of each post, identical to the icon in the visibility picker you used to compose the post. You can make these icons more colorful from your app settings, which I think is pretty neat.

Upcoming privacy Enhancements
Using Tanker, I will also be encrypting all user DMs, offering an extra layer of privacy. This will also mean that admins will not have the ability to read your DMs even when viewing our database directly.

I have now also opted all users out of search-engine indexing by default. You can change this setting for yourself, if you wish.

A big announcement for Cliterati's feature update! We have combined Glitch-soc's version of Mastodon with Fedibird's quote-posting feature, and egypturnash's custom character limit for a feature-rich experience.

First of all, our themes are back!
You can select them by going to Preferences > Flavours > Glitch Edition and selecting the theme or "skin" from the drop-down menu. We currently have 6 different "skins" for you to choose from, and there are more planned.

Please do not use the Vanilla Mastodon Flavour, as the skins selected there will break your interface and you will have to go back and select the Glitch flavor's skins. I'll be removing this flavor.

Quote-posting
Cliterati now has the ability to quote a user's status, like on birdsite. click the double-quote icon on a post to quote it, but be aware that at this current time the user will not be alerted to the fact that you have quoted them. We want to work on adding in a notification for this in the future. There's still a bit of squiggly/messy content we'll remove so it looks nicer.

Threaded-mode
There is now a 鈥渢hreaded mode鈥 feature added to the compose interface. This eases writing 鈥渢hreads鈥 of several splats and makes creating threads easier, like on birdsite.

Ability to clear notifications
You can now do this by clicking on the eraser icon when you're viewing your notifications, and selecting the notifications to be deleted.

*Enhanced text formatting for posts: *
You can now use bold, italics, even create lists and display blocks of code.

There are 3 options:
Plain text: splats are treated like in vanilla Mastodon, and are not formatted
Markdown: splats can be written in Markdown, as understood by Redcarpet
HTML: splats are written directly in HTML (but sanitized to strip any unsupported formatting)

You can write splats in Markdown or HTML from the glitch flavor by first enabling 鈥淪how content-type choice when authoring toots鈥 in the 鈥淐ompose box鈥 tab of the app settings. Then, for each splat, you can select whether you want to want to author them in Plain text, Markdown or HTML by using the content-type drop-down. You can also set your default content-type from user settings.

Improved filters:
You can hide filtered posts completely, show a "filtered" placeholder, show the "filtered" placeholder with a button to display why, or still display the post and add the filtered words to the content warning. You can do this all from the "filters" option of app settings.

Collapsible posts:
You can choose which splats to collapse, or enable/disable collapsed posts from your app settings. You can do the same with notifications.

You can doodle!!
A neat feature of glitch-soc! Click on the paperclip icon on the compose-box and you will see a "draw something" option that will allow you to create and post a doodle!

We have big news! Cliterati is going to be replaced with a new social media site, it is in early stages, meaning that we have a plan and will be working on this new project for a while! Our main site cliterati.club will soon be down while we work on the new project. If you're interested in joining the project you can email us at cliteratiteam@protonmail.com. I'm excited to see what we can achieve! We want to build the site lesbians have been asking for with more input from you! Stay tuned and check out Last Labrys podcast on Spotify! We have 4 episodes out and will be recording more - you can also email us about that, let us know a topic you'd like to hear about or speak on! As always, The Cliterati Project remains by-lesbians-for-lesbians, lesbian-only, and anti-racist.

Here's how you identify a fake radfem:

1. 90% of what they talk about is mocking and raging against trans people

2. claim to care about female trans people but say disrespectful things to/about them

3. claim that 100% of trans people are either mentally ill/misguided children or fetishists.

4. is a racist or thinks any discussion of racism is "divisive"

5. think radical feminism is a theory about trans stuff

6. say that gender stereotypes don't make you a man/woman, then say a trans male is "obviously a man" because he did something stereotypically masculine

The racism displayed by libfems who think that Indians and other non-white cultures didn't know what sex was or have a binary before the colonizers told them what sex is - is astounding. Yes, I'm sure the culture that wrote the Kama Sutra and has an extremely high rate of femicide has no idea what sex actually is.

Build a blanket fort. Seriously. Oh, and do not bring your phone into it.

Went to fly kites with mi amor yesterday and treated her to breakfast. 鈾
Might take her to the movies today. We just went and watched Raya and it was her first time at an IMAX.

I don't talk about my fianc茅e much on here but that's because I don't really know how to put into words how amazing she is. It's nice being with someone who acts grown and is able to communicate. She is so supportive and conversations with her are always interesting and inspiring. I don't think I could ever get tired of listening to her. She is by far the most attractive and beautiful woman both inside and out that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing :peep:

She knows me well and I know her through and through, we're best friends already.
Catch us completing each other's sentences, and sharing glances like we operate the same brain cell.

She supported me gaining independence from my family and encouraged me.

She and I work through any issues and also plan to attend therapy together just because we think all couples should.

We work across from each other at the moment and I can walk over to where she is so we can eat lunch together, she's my gym buddy, and my player two when we game, she's my study buddy. She is interested in anything tech that I want to teach her, and I'm interested in the anti-racist work she does.

We binge watch anime together and enjoy the same foods and we're planning on going skating together too. :blushcat:

I don't know, it's just that with each day that goes by, our relationship just gets stronger, and I fall more in love with her every single day. 鉂

Landed a job as a full-time Medical Laboratory Scientist at a hospital. The pay is good, there's a sign-on bonus, and benefits. Starting grad school full-time in the fall, too. Wish me luck. :Scmpoo:

I was accepted into both of the grad programs of my choice! Cybersecurity Risk Management and Health Informatics. :strongsquid:

After thinking about it for more than a month, I picked Health Informatics.

Cybersecurity Risk Management through Indiana University Bloomington and seems to be more geared towards law or business. You can go technical and it would prepare you for CISSP. HOWEVER, the technical track requires advanced prerequisites that I don't have and yet still doesn't go as deep as I want in terms of actual tech know-how. I would likely be stuck doing law. Plus, the intro lecture sounded like a sausage fest and a bunch of guys patting themselves on the back. :loser: There was much talk about nothing and no solid idea of job availability or job security. Almost like they were selling this new program to suckers.

Health Informatics on the other hand, actually had more technical classes, can be tailored to be more security oriented, and will tie into the medical science and health technology that I am already familiar with. There is also a graduate certificate in health information security that is offered. All of this will prepare me for an HCISPP. They offered me a scholarship, too.

The choice was pretty clear. :squiddy:

Just dropped close to $200 on skates as a treat to myself for getting into grad school. No, I do not regret it.

cw: dysphoria 

i am so tired of straight radfems who do nothing but hate on dysphoric people all day. gender dysphoria exists. it doesn't mean transgenderism is an ideology that makes sense. you can call out the logical fallacies in trans theory without ragging on dysphoric women in the process! trust me!

Been spending too much time on the birdsite I just said "tweet" on this app
