It's interesting how one of the most 'controversial' points in the fediverse right now isn't how to make tools easier or how to better equip people to deal with harassment.
It's the point that some of our online spaces do not center the white cultural experience.
That single idea inspires so much hostility and angst from so many people.
However at the same time, it highlights why so many online spaces keep having the same issues over and over.
Ha, it's not magic.
LBT: This year for #CYBREMONDAY I did an Exciting Deluxe Edition Rerelease of the original #CYBRE manifesto. In the brand‐new forward, I discuss the project, what I've witnessed in the time since the original publication, and where I think we should be setting our sights moving forward.

@bridge First off, thanks for the shout out. I appreciate that.
Ok, so let me be clear about one thing. Play Vicious isn't specifically for PoC. At the end of the day, it's open to everyone.
The distinction comes in because I make it a point to make PV a safe space for PoC, LQBTQI, etc folks. And I am very vocal about PV being that kind of space.
The thing that's cool about the fediverse is that it gives the option to have that kind of space

My favorite fact about Elon Musk, which I learned from a talk given by one of the Tesla founders:
Elon Musk was not there when they founded Tesla. He made an investment in Tesla later on, and one of the things he wanted in return for his investment was to get the title "Founder of Tesla". He literally bought the title.
White cis male / easy mode / criticism Show more
If you pride yourself on playing through life on easy mode, you disgust me.
The least you can do is to make sure to do all the fucking side missions, and align yourself good.
Help the people who ask for your help.
Today is also unofficially trans day of pizza. Friends of trans people are invited to give small gifts to the living: a little money, or a lunch. Pizza was the initial thing and personally, yes I will take a pizza. But also, you know, plenty of people are lactose intolerant to varying degrees (this is also me fwiw but pizza is good.).
In conclusion, put $20 of your money where your mouth is if you’re cis and offer a trans friend lunch and a reminder of your love.

It doesn't matter whether it's working "as intended", if the intent itself was flawed.
This isn't hard to fix, the hard part will be convincing the devs that their current design has bad enough side-effects that it should be reconsidered.

This instance (especially this bot https://mstdn.foxfam.club/@d3vnull) was clearly purpose-built to put the views & beliefs of white nationalists and fascists onto our timelines.
We here at ✨Plush✨ City are opposed to white nationalism and fascism in all its forms. As such, we actively work to de-platform white nationalists, whenever possible. This is such an act; we encourage other #mastoadmin folks to join us in solidarity.
