privacytools.io, nb erasure/bullying
I essentially just got bullied out of the @privacytools Matrix channel for - wait for it - having my pronouns in my display name.
And for linking to the code of conduct in response to someone who said that explicit pronouns weren't needed before people decided it was politically correct to make up gender, which is apparently now a minefield.
While a moderator did eventually step in, their role was to make a point that there is a use to stating pronouns, which there is, but they didn't actually handle the situation that led to my leaving the room. Nor any mention of the code of conduct, nor did anyone reach out afterwards.
The ironic thing about being bullied out of this space is that I actually am employed in this sector 😆
