From the little that I know, the #transbill #india conversation seems to have gone like this.

Trans folks: We have rights too you know.
Govt: Here's a bill that will protect your rights.
Trans folks: This bill doesn't work for us.
Govt: I'm glad you like it.
Trans folks: But... but... you aren't listening.
Govt: I'm so great for protecting your rights.
Trans folks: But you're not protecting my rights!
Govt: You can thank me later.

Hey Mastodon. If you want to just vent and not get advice, use the content warning feature and type "no advice" in the text box. It's common practice on Mastodon servers. :)

Another update: the client still wants to work with me and perhaps just wants me to doubt my pricing (I did charge fairly after all!). Jeez, freelancing is a mindfuck. Been doing it 6 years. SIX YEARS. And I still feel like a novice half the time.

Update: spoke to another very experienced person who told me to quote even higher. 😐😐😐

A coworker at one of the other offices in the country recently passed away, and the management of the company (a massive multinational Fortune 500 conglomerate with a presence on every continent except Antarctica) is circulating an email soliciting donations from other employees to provide for his wife and two young kids in the wake of his passing.

Capitalism, y'all. Isn't it glorious?

Do read this story from democratic India, where 10,000 people in Jharkhand are charged with sedition for asking to either be given their constitutional rights, or be corrected on what their rights are. That's right, 10,000 people. That's right, sedition. scroll.in/article/944116/10000

Ugh I absolutely don't wanna tweet anymore but I keep going back to that hellish website in case I have doubts or queries or if I need to bitch about a brand and I end up retweeting some cute shit or getting entangled in some twoxic thread.

I have been told that I undersell myself so to prevent that from happening in a new gig, I spoke with a highly experienced person regarding how much I should charge and sent the quote to my client confidently. And the response I have gotten suggests that I may have overcharged. 🤦 But the fucked up thing is the price they think is the industry standard is abysmally low. Which only means that people who do this job in India are underpaid af.

Is there an Indian book designer and typesetter I can talk to? Need some advice.

I don't have a lot of experience working around men in a corporate set up so I have a very low threshold for BS.

Reclaiming an open internet that is controlled by no-one and everyone instead of a handful of Silicon Valley billionaires will take some time. Establishing a presence on Mastodon is the first step.
