i don't really feel safe in safe spaces, which is ironic, i know. i'm glad they exist now, but i grew up on the anarchic web and feel a lot more comfortable in free spaces where the rules are less "don't post x, y or z without content warnings" and more "try not to be a dickhead"
on that note, i am thinking of pulling back from mastodon a bit because i'm really not a good fit for the community and the community is not a good fit for me. having crossposting enabled has caused me to worry a lot about the kind of stuff i post on twitter and it's been the cause of a lot of anxiety. i can't live like this.
@bossposs "try not to be a dick" seems very vunerable to... i'm not sure what the word is? "rulepushing"? - at the moment. maybe it was different back then though
@snailerotica any rule is vulnerable to that. i'd like to trust that my peers are adults and can discuss their problems when they come up, and if the admins need to intervene then so be it. if i can't trust the admins then idk, i guess i shouldn't be there
@snailerotica of course, i'm also not comfortable in very large communities in general. would much rather be in a smaller space where everyone is at least on civil terms. i don't feel like having specific rules is as important with smaller groups
