why am I reading unicode proceedings

anyway:

> We are, however, doubtful that BDSM and furry flags would meet the requirements for frequency of usage, multiple usages, and image distinctiveness

(L2/19-194, unicode.org/L2/L2019/19194-tra)

@iliana impressive how fast anyone with power over some ressource, as plentyful as it might be, turns into a gatekeeping asshole. what are they worried about? there's literally an infinite number of codepoints.

@iliana
● “It will never end”
○ This is true, because the humanity will never end, and Unicode is part of
humanity not separate from it.

@iliana They're scared of it being diverse, because they're techbros.

@iliana expropriate Unicode Consortium tbh and give the standard to people who actually care about inclusiveness, vs adding more binarist ethnocentric emoji that drive smartphone sales
