#freesoftware is political, it gives power to many, not the few. Right wingers wouldn't release their source code willingly. It's against their ideology. Yet, they are appropriating free software and the fediverse for their agenda. Do you want people using fdroid do something like:
They fuel stochastic terrorism. You don't need to take part in it. Consider that people are complaining because you made the wrong decision and you can make it right.
One, MLK has been dead more than fifty years now. There's no way to gauge the trajectory of his politics in that time.
Two, the sanitized-for-whites "politics" of MLK aren't the genuine article. MLK was a radical socialist. Bernie is a center-left Democratic "Socialist."
MLK was all for dismantling the capitalist, imperialist state that is America. Bernie wants no such thing -- all he wants is for the rest of us to share in the spoils extracted from the Global South.
So yeah. Don't presume to speak for a dead black radical and thereby dishonor his memory.
readin study on trans kids +
"we had some 'tomboy' trans girls in the study, just as we had 'tomboy' cis girls."
"This study does show that in fact not all trans girls (or cis girls) want to wear frilly pink dresses or play with dolls. We in fact see plenty of trans kids violating these stereotypes, just as we see cis kids do so,"
my heart is full knowing tht there are trans kids in this study who are being affirmed in their genders and im so hopeful for the world we must build for them
it's weird* how when a US war criminal dies its "don't speak ill of the dead" but then Soleimani is assassinated by the USA and there's an entire industry dedicated to pouring out op-eds convincing the public that this man 99% of them had never heard of before his death was evil incarnate
driving on the left, and your kneejerk thought is "that car's on the wrong side of the road!"
Except it's the Internet, and there are no central authorities dictating what traffic rules functiin where, and everyone is everywhere. That poses a problem for etiquette, but it's not anyone's fault; the world is just a big and complicated place, and pressing YOUR community norms on other people for whom they are ill-fitting is not gonna change that.
So be thoughtful. Listen to, and consider the viewpoints of, people who you hold power over. Make judgment calls like "I won't boost this; my friend (who does NOT make those kinds of tradeoffs) will be triggered.
Just don't treat people of color like children when they express something you haven't considered before. White people should not act like we're not the judge and jury of race relations.
One of the best things about the Fediverse is that these bigots have no hold here, and we don’t spend an exhausting amount of time arguing with them and beating back their trolling attempts and harassment.
I think it’s super important that we keep this space that way, and that means stamping them out every time they breathe vitriol in our general direction—especially when it comes under the guise of “debate” and “asking questions.”
We aren’t here to debate our existence.
