copyfarleft/copyleft/liberatory software is certainly a form of subversive praxis now, but people should keep in mind its just a temporary tactic until we get rid of copyright, the legal system, and the state entirely. Clinging onto it forever just makes you plain reactionary.

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

'Pandemic' seems to be a very scary word to most mainly due to its association with things like the Spanish Flu Pandemic or the Black Death, but Pandemics are fairly common and only require an outbreak of a disease to affect multiple continents.

In fact we are currently experiencing multiple pandemics, such as the HIV pandemic which never ended, The Zika Virus Pandemic, and the current Chinese Pneumonia/2019-Noval Coronavirus.

Just because something has become a pandemic doesn't make it immediately apocalyptically bad, though still very bad it in most cases won't be super visible to most people.

Patriarchy isn't just when it's overt.

It's when a guy does something that makes others uncomfortable because they think it's funny.

And no one says anything. No guys in charge say *anything*

Allowing the *joke* to still be funny to the guy tormenting everyone else.

Causing everyone who was protesting to now be people "who just don't get jokes" instead of victims of someone being an ass.

Perpetuating the idea that those NOT funny *jokes* are okay and wanted.

Fuck the patriarchy.

Oh.. ? "Much to my surprise, we found that, even though we know that Native Americans were in New England for at least 14,000 years with, at certain times in history, fairly large population densities, the ecological signal was essentially invisible," said Chilton. "If one did not know there had been humans on the landscape, it would be almost impossible to detect them on a regional scale."

I literally had eco-fascists screaming the opposite at me just a week ago.

Asking for a set of friends: where do AMAB folks in the UK get feminizing HRT meds when they don't yet have a prescription?

Boosts welcome cuz kinda urgent -- they have 6 days' worth of regular dosage left, 12 if they skimp... and there's probably going to be delivery time on top of that...

@thufie what is the deal with syria? do u like wearing bras,

My telegram bio is "Will tell you the truth about Syria if you ask nicely" and the number of techbros who have dm'd me to ask, then tried to segue into hitting on me is hilarious. A very high conversion ratio of about 2/3.

The fact that people consider water something to make money from should be sickening to everyone. And yet, selling water in disposable bottles made from petrochemicals is so normalised, most people donโ€™t even think twice about it. Itโ€™s so wrong.

the "we need to be ableist and anti-immigrant in order to appeal to the worker" part of the left is 100% the most classist part of the left, in addition to all of its other obvious bigotries

the answer is that Kirby Air Ride has ska kirby music. The music that plays upon getting first place in a round of top ride mode is ska-themed kirby music.

This isn't just for fun, it's also useful for #accessibility reasons - you have the bootloader beep when it's ready and then beep again when it starts booting up the OS - keeping blind users informed of where their computer is in the boot up process.

pop quiz: which Kirby game has a third-wave ska cover of one of its theme songs?

machine learning is a crutch for rich people in IT who can't program for shit and have access too more data than is remotely reasonable
