*documentary voice*: and over here, we see the white man, already in the midst of the argument. Logic and reasoning are being thrown at him, but we'll see him double down in a moment - there he goes, "but this is the way it's always been done." This does nothing but frustrate the other parties - they will continue the arguments, but since the white man is in charge he does nothing.
A long history of white people being bad at groups, personal overthinking Show more
The catch is, I am also a white cismale piece of shit and feel obligated to not hold any position higher than the base in the interest of community integrity. I think it works out, though, because I have no real idea on how project management works, so really shouldn't touch anything ever anyways. Maybe I'm not understanding how my privilege works there.
Regardless, I aim to contribute where I can be used
A long history of white people being bad at groups, religion Show more

Also me: holy shit why is this one white cismale piece of shit the maintainer of an open source social media service? We need to fork, now.
mastodon drama / gargamel being gargamel Show more
almighty garg, in words, pretty much saying "accessibility is not as important as comparing ourselves to twitter and other corporate platforms"
I just wanted underlines on links on Mastodon, not to write a damn thesis. At least clients *want* your advice. https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/9898
helping victims Show more
I'm still getting "I don't know how to help" messages from people.
If you want to help someone, and you yourself are not in danger, you need to do more than boost a post on social media.
You need to take an active interest in helping that person.
1) give them money
2) ask your friends to give them money (in person, via email, NOT on social media)
3) ask your friends to give them money (in person, via email, NOT on social media)
Please stop burdening victims and just HELP THEM.
@pippasaidwhat Honestly, I think that would be a major step forward. There's a reason the States keeps trying to revision history.
White supremacy robs everyone of their culture and history, including white people.
it’s always interesting to see how differently people respond to me when bringing up the same points others have (and often have done better than me)
i am (often) received well/better than most
make sure you notice how your privilege impacts your interactions. and use your privilege as much as you can to talk about important things and boost/support folks who need their voices heard
For the love of.... of course I have to make this clear because... white people.
When I say ask me questions, that does not mean asking me to work that you can do yourself.
If you ask me for examples of harassment and general assholery being thrown my way, and I say look at me timeline, that's what I mean.
Me saying I'm open to questions is not an invitation to ask me to do labor for you b/c you're too lazy to do it yourself.
I am not here to make interacting w/ Black folks easier for you
