@Lyude Remember, haters gotta hate, because they got nothing going on in their lives.

setting a very firm boundary 

This has been such a problem lately that I have to say something about it.

We've had some interpersonal issues with folks that resulted in us blocking them. Sometimes we do it quietly and move on, sometimes we mention that a boundary is crossed, it's not all that consistent.

But what has been consistent is that some folks feel it necessary to publicly call us out for it, talking to us as if we're going to see it.

Regardless of circumstances, regardless of whether we made a mistake in blocking you, the moment you make a public callout about it, you have irreversibly broken our ability to trust you.

What you have done is made a personal issue public, opened the doors for us to be harassed and dogpiled (which has happened multiple times) and we can no longer trust you to keep personal things personal.

We don't have a choice in this, there are some former friends who have done this that we wanted to try to apologize to, or maybe see if we could reverse a mistake. But that trust is gone, and it's not coming back.

tl;dr: don't publicly call us out for blocking you or we'll never be able to trust you again.

Wanting to have different junk down there isn't an intrusive thought Quest, you just keep forgetting you're trans nonbinary. :dragnblanketsleep:

On the recommendation of some cool fedi animal-people I installed the Unhook extension that removes everything from YouTube that isn't your subscriptions.

I have also been using the SponsorBlock extension that automatically skips sponsored content segments for more than a year.

And, of course, we all know about ad blockers.

I love how with a little bit of curiosity you can completely take a knife to the unwholesome systems of people who really don't have your best interests at heart.

If your employer says you don't need a union, you need a union more than you think.

The "nazi bar" anecdote is directed to the people with control over who's in the bar (e.g. bar owners, or digitally, tech executives and admins). It was a description of how the people with the most control over a space should exercise it to not platform fascists. Just saying

callout post: block evasion 

I normally don't do this sort of thing but I'm making an exception because of harassment

Calling out a user with the handle @.maxtheprotogen@dariox.club for evading blocks /four/ times so far and I doubt it's going to be the last

A dear family member needs hardware, please boost!

"Okay so, I can't put this off any further. I need a new computer, this one I am on is 12 years old and I am paranoid about it dying at any moment. Saving up as much as possible to get what hardware I can by the end of this year. It has recently become a bit of an emergency as I realized more and more of the programs I use are starting to break on my system. I really need this to happen before the end of this year. 🙏"

Of course, if someone has the misfortune of getting stuck in the spirit realm and encountering Min-Su, the fox is more than happy to tell their victim how to leave... provided they can beat one of the kumiho's games.

"You win, I'll tell you the way out of this little corner of the spirit world... You lose, however..."

The kumiho's voice trails off as they lick their chops.

"Well, let's just say you wouldn't have been leaving anyway..."

I'm inclined to think that if someone tells you they don't like being called something, you shouldn't call them that, even if you don't think it's a slur from your perspective.

If you don't know what to call them then just ask.

I post a lot about my medical transition, so I thought it would be good for me to say, without qualifications or modifications:

I am entirely against transmedicalism.

Anyone who sincerely says "this is my gender" literally is that gender, no questions asked.

I was fully a woman the day I claimed that identity for myself. Hell, I claim it retroactively — I was always a woman, even before I knew it.

The procedures that I've had, the years of HRT, they help me to like my physical form better, and that makes me a happier person. But they don't make me any more a woman than I was before

Finding a Nazi while gaming is about as pleasant as finding a Brazillian Wandering Spider in your corn flakes.

Actually, scratch that -- Wandering spiders are just spiders, a Nazi is a piece of shit who deserves a bullet.


parents who think kids OWE you for raising ‘em: yikes

I sacrifice SO MUCH for my kid and he’ll never know cause I don’t want him to feel responsible for my choices

I do it because I LOVE HIM and will always take care of him, not so he’ll pay me back someday
