tech companies be like "here are tools to monitor your child's private conversations, social media posts, bank accounts, diaries, browsing history, class attendance, GPS location, and deepest inner thoughts" with parents going "why child not trust me???? ?????"

can you believe the straights are grooming children for heterosexual lifestyles as early as IN THE WOMB? look up "gender reveal party" to die instantly

that polycule is not law enforcement friendly

The transphobic 'groomers' talking point that is popular amongst hateful people right now reminds me very much of the 'Black men are coming to take your women and children' line ran by racists back in the 50s and 60s.

There is this idea in whiteness that people who are not white, cis, and straight have a fascination with influencing their population. This thought is just a projection because white people have brutally perfected these manipulation methods over centuries.

From what I can see, it's yet another example of white people being deathly afraid that we will enact the horrors that they've acted on us.

And a driving force in the culture of whiteness is the fear of consequences for their collective actions.

we really need to do a better job educating folks about how the map is not the protocol

mentions being in the body of the status is convention and abstraction, activitypub has address fields just like email but they simply aren't displayed

@pastelpunkbandit @charlag you're both wrong, email and gotosocial are both absolutely wretched and dreadful :blobrainbow:

Accessible masto onboarding 

Is there an accessible masto onboarding/wiki already in existence for new users, especially less techy ones? And if not, would anyone like to help me make one? I'm pretty OK at writing training guides and would love to be able to share a resource like this with new users when they log in to the mastodon platform so they can get used to things, esp etiquette things that we are learning over time and wtf is going on. Most folks on earth won't be able to participate rn

I am really glad when people add alt text to images on Mastodon.

My internet is so damn slow, that images never really load (i turn them off anyway), but at least I can get a sense of what it is from the text ^____^.

Historical depol, tankie nonsense 

I saw a meme (indirectly) calling east germany a successful communist revolution like

That shit was a puppet state installed by the soviet union lmao

charlag boosted

hidden mentions being surprising to everyone is a direct consequence of mastodon putting twitter semantics on a protocol that does not care for those semantics

"(...) 58% of the rapeseed – and 9% of the sunflower oil – consumed in Europe between 2015 and 2019 was burned in cars and trucks, even though their climate impacts may be even worse than fossil fuels. Supermarkets have had to ration vegetable oils and prices are soaring,” said Maik Marahrens from the campaign group Transport & Environment, which carried out the research. “At the same time, we are burning thousands of tons of sunflower and rapeseed oil in our cars daily. In a time of scarcity we must prioritise food over fuel.”

The famed efficiency of the free market is yet again on display for everyone to marvel at its perfection, I see.
