I don't want to put this guy on blast because he actually was pretty civil, but one of the arguments I make when people are like, "You should convince Nazis to stop being Nazis" is that _they_ are free to do that. I have enough trouble with my own shit to try to fix Nazis. If you "disagree" with them then why are you arguing with me to accept them instead of arguing with *THEM* to stop being Nazis?
The response was, "I would, but I've never come across any because they're banned" and like... that was so telling. These guys (and they're usually guys, sorry) just never encounter these people THEMSELVES so they think they don't exist.
broke vs poor
broke is temporary, poor is a life of fear
I'm getting really tired of talking to broke people who wear the badge of poverty and then take it off a month later because they got theirs
it would take hundreds of thousands of dollars for someone like me to not to be in poverty, and that's most likely never going to happen even if I somehow manage to find steady income
the poverty hole can't be filled with small amounts when you literally have nothing
broke vs poor
broke is having to give up buying new video games for a month, poor is skipping meals every week to afford medication
broke is waiting for your next paycheck so you don't tap into your savings, poor is not having a savings account
broke is moving in with your parents to save money, poor is not having anywhere to go
broke is borrowing cash, poor is asking for cash you can't pay back
broke is knowing you'll be okay, being poor is knowing you won't

Yo, this is a completely serious comment. And this person expects me to DEBATE with them.
LOL, white people are a trip, man.
Ha, no pile ups, please. I just want people to see how even progressive white people care more about the appearance of caring about social issues rather than actually doing something about it.
Yes, it's a pattern. And mind you this is right after I comment where I talk about how I just go profiled.
why do men insist on keeping friendships with shitty people????
like you don't have to interact with them or be nice to them just bc you've known them for a long time and once were close
remove them, stop inviting them places, stop making other folks feel uncomfortable or even unsafe to be With You because you refuse to remove those people from your life

A friendly acquaintance of mine is a trans professor at Bryn Mawr college and is co hosting the first ever Early Modern Trans Studies conference (starts tomorrow through Friday).
He was super excited about me sharing on Mastodon so def check it out if you're near the campus or in PA!
> After a show of extremely unfriendly behavior from the maintainers of Funkwhale, I decided I will not be going forward with this after all, they enjoy policing language more than coding, and they require total obedience to explicitly evil code of conduct they adopted.
Looks like we won't see Funkwhale support in Nuclear :D
I've started a Loomio thread for the abuse audit of the @funkwhale software. This is where we go through and try to find all the ways it can be used for evil and then all the ways we can attempt to stop or deter that behavior. We welcome the help! 🐋 https://governance.funkwhale.audio/d/pQS1Uznd/abuse-audit
Fascists/racists and dog whistles
My friend and his girlfriend had a very barky min-pin. They tried putting a collar on the dog that would spray citronella in her face when she barked. The dog would bark once, get sprayed, then perform a quick binary search to discover the volume threshold, after which she'd bark right under the threshold.
I'm not sure why we think fascists don't do this.
As @davatron5000 says, I don't like playing cat and mouse with my privacy. https://daverupert.com/2018/04/dave-went-android/ At the same time, I'd prefer to run open-source software rather than iOS. And I've used Android since the HTC Dream.
But using Android without Google apps is just *so* hard. Not only do I have to invoke weird terminal sorcery every six months, but the damn thing doesn't even work very well – I haven't had working push notifications or GPS in a year. Time to throw in the towel?
Deadline reports that James Gunn has been rehired for GotG3, after Gunn was genuinely contrite and Disney realized that Cernovich is a fuckstick: https://deadline.com/2019/03/james-gunn-reinstated-guardians-of-the-galaxy-3-disney-suicide-squad-2-indefensible-social-media-messages-1202576444/
