Gender is racialized and I don't think there are words to articulate that experience yet

"OK Bob. We're run into a problem and you're the only one who can solve it."

"What's the problem?"

"Our company will go bust soon if we don't solve this perplexing problem."

"Sounds serious"

"It is, Bob. This computer can only be programmed using a white board and a half-dead marker. It's programmed using whatever language you last used, and it requires three variations of the Fibbonacci sequence: one recursive, one iterative, and one using a linked list".

"My God"

"You have five minutes"

the right wingers are out in full force crying about how the media isn’t covering van bronsen or his manifesto that explicitly says he’s antifa and like
Yeah Dude
i wonder why corporate entities wouldn’t want anyone to read a leftist manifesto. really weird shit, definitely couldn’t be because it’s the one thing that actually poses a threat to corporate control over everything

"Fly Me To The Moon" is a stupid song. you cannot "play among the stars". theyre massive and hot and far apart. if you even survived, you could perhaps play with one star at a time, or two in a binary system, at maximum.

thinkin about becoming an antifascist but like not one of those uncool ones that hates cops.

something ive learned over the last few years and by listening to more black people is that most of the shittiness they experience isn't from loudly shitty racist caricatures shouting slurs at them, it's from white people who refuse to give them support, who enable racism, and who refuse to listen

Instead of donating to a nonprofit charity that claims to be for something as nebulous and malleable as "LGBT rights," just find a trans person, *Any Trans Person*, and give them that money instead

We definitely need to unionize programmers. The number of misplaced electrons in programming is simply too high.

Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊

As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.

btw so like if you believe the mcdonalds/hot coffee lawsuit is "frivolous" its because a bunch of corporate lawyers have been trying to tell you that one of the only times a working class person has successfully sued a company and got them to change a terrible thing they were doing that was hurting people, so they retaliated by using it as a big campaign to erode the right and ability of working class people to get restitution when wronged by corporations #mastodev

+ having butt sex (receiving)
+ having sex while sick with a disease the government refused to acknowledge until it had become an epidemic
+ publishing gay shit
+ owning physique magazines

Fyi, interesting note from an accessibility workshop I did recently, apparently screen readers interpret camelcase fairly well (and long lowercase strings of characters without spaces very poorly), so #MakeSureToCapitaliseEachWordInYourHashtagsPlease 💚 :heart_parrot: 💚
