so tired of anarchy's only vibe being punk.

instead of white boys drawing graffiti on brick walls, give me black lesbians harvesting the vertical farm on the side of their collectively governed skyscraper

instead of white boys wearing black and flipping off cops, show me an open air market that doesn't need police because everyone can take what they need

vandalizing walls and flipping off cops are valid forms of resistance, but what we're fighting for is beautiful too

we should put npm on a blockchain, that sounds like a good idea

I can't wait to understand queer history enough to be able to make memes that literally only I will get, but that I will find absolutely hilarious and completely relatable

I can't be bothered to make actual memes, so this is what y'all are getting instead

so yesterday, twitch referred to trans people as "womxn", they apologized when they got called the fuck out

today, they have started banning and censoring the word "queer", claiming it's a slur

there is still no "trans" tag. the lgbt+ tag is "lgbtqia+". the q stands for fucking queer

companies are not your fucking friend. they don't care about queer people

there should be an instance where the character limit applies to your whole account. something ridiculously high like 1,000,000,000, but every post you make chips away at the limit. when it gets to 0 you gotta either make a new account or delete some posts

As far as I know, the notion of an inevitable upward trajectory to technological godhood has been with us since the Renaissance but not much before. Science as the true human destiny™ is kind of a new idea and has never been separate from the destruction of cultures perceived as less 'technologically advanced'. There's a direct line between devaluation of indigenous cultures and tech bro pseudo-religion

Every time we get another person whose whole thing is "I am in tech and I'm here to single-handedly save civil discourse and make the world a slightly better place to be, mostly by twiddling my thumbs, speaking in neutral-sounding jargon designed to muddy the waters, and attempting to change any conversation into one about technology even if I don't really have anything concrete to add about how technology could improve the issue," I trust 'technological solutions' that little bit less. We're now at less than zero, but it's still a downward trend.
