I'm now getting DMs of support because people are afraid if they agree publicly they'll be harassed next. That's not a good atmosphere folks.

@Gargron There's a lot of things people self-censor so they won't get targeted, Eugen. It's not new to the community and it won't be fixed without understanding why people were upset in the first place.

@Gargron The trans community that came from Twitter in particular is prickly and defensive because of years of having the only recourse being to be louder and more oboxious, because nobody else gave a shit. That's not something that is fixed in a week of good intentions.

@Gargron It takes empathy and communication and I think this instance had it fail on both counts, which is why it spiraled into what it did.
