Now is the time to start thinking about this. Are you willing to help out, from a governance perspective?
It's been suggested by @PaulFerence that we use affirmative action to make sure that the leading group is diverse from the get go.
Send us your nominations, or volunteering. Talk with people you'd want to work with on this.
Which perspectives do you want represented here?
My experience with men in FOSS is the same as my experience with men in games, comics, TV, film, web content, craft beer, and photography.
It's all the same entitled, hostile shit that has a built-in system to make sure everyone else is kept on the fringe.
Stop trying to reason with the unreasonable.
you can not reverse-oppress someone
oppression is not a game of Uno

i do not speak for all of us who came here to mastodon. but i can speak for myself, and hopefully those like me.
we came here because, for a while, people listened. because there were others like us that wanted something better. because there was meaningful change. that's what #forkofftogether is all about. let's change, let's ditch the entitled techbro who has become more of an obstacle than a helper.
he ditched us once he gained enough of a platform, our turn to ditch him.
Hello Mrs emac can you help me with my coding program

@Are0h Kind of how they realized that most of the psychology studies heavily favored graduate students and college students way of thinking; because they didn't go off campus much to get more opinions / insight

As someone that picked up programming on their own, the ability to create something from nothing is very powerful. I can understand why coders think they should lead.
But this is just myopia. If you're just building something for yourself, that's fine, but if you're building some for other people, it _must_ be a collaborative effort with people that are not like you.
And I think we've seen enough platforms built from a singular experience and perspective.
@kjhoerr and in honour of May MH Month, meet Bout.ca the FIRST instance for Mental Health! Omg this is gonna look like spam/advertising I’m so sorry but I’m Emeh, an admin of Bout.ca
If you’re suffering with a mental illness, need to vent, want someone who understand you, or you want to help others, then Bout.ca is the place for you!
Feel free to ask me any questions!! :)
The small but crucial detail is that I'm the only fulltime developer on the project. Oops :(
I'm becoming the developer that sneaks in at night and adds unit tests to the project
So, since I lost the job with Mastodon a lot earlier than I expected, we wont really have any money over the summer (as this one month just covers the lack of student loan for this month(You get a lot less in May)).
If you appreciate the work I've been doing for Mastodon, even though I'm not hired anymore, and want to help us eat over the summer, any pledge on patreon or liberapay are very welcome!
if musks idea is implemented i’m gonna rate reductress and onion article high in truth/accuracy
May is mental health awareness month
