If I am denying your follow requests, please consider the following:

- You may not have enough or any info in your bio and that might be all that federates before I accept the follow request. Consider adding your age (or just above or below 18), pronoun, and some mention of political orientation before trying again.
- Your bio says you are "above/beyond" gender and you are clearly a cishet dude just refusing to post your preferred pronouns because of some weird anxiety (seriously, stop even "any" is acceptable)
- You might be using national flags outside the context of indicating which languages you speak, which I see as a red flag.
- You use exclusionary slurs (not cuss words, I don't give a fuck) including anything homophobic or ableist
- All of the above apply to you and I seriously have no fucking clue why you want to follow me or why I should follow back

I was wondering yesterday if there are any red/black bisected masks out there, turns out the Bangladesh Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation already made a bunch for their own mutual aid efforts :ancomheart:

im sure there are better people out there to hear this from than me, but if theres anything ive learned in the past few months, its that you cant just Not Be A Racist, you have to actively and consciously be ANTI-racist

There's no way wearing your mask right below your nose is more comfortable than having it over your nose.

Hold on i'm not actually done.

For all that "maker culture" is supposed to be about democratizing tech, from where I'm standing it seems amazingly top-down, separatist, and undemocratic. Why do your expos need to be their "own thing"? Why is being a "maker" something with so many ties to Silicon Valley bro culture and not like, county fairs? Why are you starting with "HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO IRL WITH HACKING" and not "here's how to integrate tech into your existing real-world crafts"?

PoC on Masto have written about this way better but search sucks, so you're getting this instead sorry. What I want to express is that your view of a PoC doesn't have to be cartoonishly racist or subhuman or stereotypical to be harmful and bigoted; it just has to lack the complexity and depth you'd afford to a white person

Hey fellow white people. Deal with your internalized racism. Do it everyday, because it comes up everyday.

You're not over it. You'll never be over it. Don't lie to yourself.

If you want to democratize tech, don't start with people who are already into tech. Go to actual craft fairs and figure out what little old ladies need from tech that is either a) not being met or b) being met by super-expensive corporate shit.

Like. Why isn't there a raspberry pi workshop/booth at the county fair? Why are you relying on normal people to seek you out instead of meeting them where they are?

Instead, native speakers (at least in Argentina) generally use the letter "e". It's already used in some naturally gender neutral words in Spanish (Say, "Bebe") and it also does not sound like ass.

@CrimethInc Please caption your image! I will do it for you.

Poster that reads:
"""
IMMIGRANTS WELCOME

The border is not a wall—it's a system of control.
It doesn't protect people; it pits them against each other.
It doesn't foster togetherness; it breeds resentment.
It doesn't keep out predators; it gives them badges and guns.

The border does not divide one world from another.

There is only one world, and the border is tearing it apart.
"""

The poster depicts a barbed-wire fence being cut by gardening shears, and links to crimethinc.com/borders.

A script that corrects the word "maker" into "guy who does arts and crafts"

"Maker space" = craft room

"Maker ethos" = enthusiasm for arts and crafts

"Maker fair" = craft expo

None of this shit is revolutionary, it's just stuff that your grandmas have always done. You are the newcomer. It's not any less arts-and-crafts just because it involves a 3D printer now.

liberals pretend to have an undefined point where things become 'too evil' for them, and would ideally like to do absolutely nothing until that point is reached, and oh wow, what a surprise, nothing after that point is reached either
