Pronouns update:

Hey folks! I'm not sure if it's the end-all and be-all, or final term, but I'm pretty sure at this point that I'm genderfluid, and am updating my pronouns to he/they/she. Feel free to refer to me by any of these pronouns (or any others, really, except "it" or plural pronouns).

If I'm being particularly feminine, you are encouraged to refer to me as she (but don't have to). If I'm in a Mood™ I might request a specific pronoun (like she) and would appreciate it if you use it in that thread or at that time.

So, there's this concept of "implicit feudalism" in online communities. Essentially, the vast majority of online communities - from old-school forums, to facebook groups, to large platforms like Twitter and Facebook themselves, even to fediverse instances - they're all run as dictatorships by default. It's built into the software - you'll have a top admin who has full, unconstrained power, they might delegate mods who have some limited powers, and anyone else has to listen to what these dictators and lords tell them. We talk about "federating" here in the fediverse, but each individual community - as far as I'm aware of - is a little dictatorship. A federation of dictatorships is not a free society, anymore than the UN, an international body composed of "liberal democracies" and authoritarian regimes is truly democratic. We need a way to start governing online communities through actual forms of democracy.

trying to read an article and discover that it's been taken down, or your employer blocks the domain? (maybe because it's a labor organizing website...) Use Google's cached version, or the Internet Archive, to read it.

Bail & Legal Defense for Rural NC Trans Inmate

"'Jinx' has been in jail for nearly a month without bail after being harassed and targeted for her gender identity. She had a stable home and job until coworkers found out she had begun HRT. Her employer & landlord told her he objected to her "lifestyle and sexuality," then fired her and then staged a verbal altercation while she was coming home so he could call the police. Shortly after the arrest, eviction papers were filed in court, claiming she deserves to be homeless and unemployed simply because she was arrested."

What I Wanted: "Are there any peer-reviewed scientific studies or properly-sourced articles to support this assertion?"
What I Got: "The truth is literally unknowable so I'll just believe whatever feels right to me and assume everyone else secretly agrees but is just arguing in bad faith for their own personal advancement."

Hot take, Video games 

I call for the end of content creation platform landlords. Companies like Bethesda and Valve celebrate the dedication of fans who create game content for free, while ultimately we've been the ones creating these games all along.

If Bethesda were to go under, the Morrowind and Doom modding scenes would be literally unchanged, if not improved.
