So YouTube is removing community contributions, which means community-contributed captions and subtitles are not going to be available anymore.

If you have any viewership in another country, and you wish to make your content more accessible to them but you do not speak their language, or to make your content accessible for viewers who are hard of hearing or deaf, YouTube says “tough luck.”

You’ll have to find either dedicated volunteers, or hire a translator, to translate your transcript into other languages.

Which disincentivizes accessibility measures for many creators. Which is bad.

I strongly recommend everybody look at and read the Indigenous Anarchist Federation's reading list.


reminder that just as trans people deserve bodily autonomy and respect, intersex people deserve bodily autonomy and respect

in general:

- don't do genital altering surgeries on children and infants unless a bodily function is obstructed (ie. can't urinate or have a hard time doing so, phimosis, or they're literally allergic to their own organs or w/e)

- don't force kids to be cis, or to even conform to the binary standard in general

- listen to them!! if something makes them uncomfortable, do what you can to resolve that on THEIR terms!

- teach them about their bodily and social rights! and teach them about the history of gender and pronouns too! you would be surprised as to how old some invented pronouns are if you don't know already. quite a few historical figures were also gnc, nonbinary, and trans!
