pride, strife within the queer community 

I can tell from a lot of attitudes I see from young queers online that they know next to nothing about our history and have probably never been exposed to any queer culture offline. Like whenever I see somebody preaching about how bisexual and/or transmasc lesbians don't exist, ace people aren't queer, kink doesn't belong at pride, only lebians can call themselves femme or butch, etc...I think damn, you really just don't know, do you?

This is why intergenerational solidarity is so important and generational warfare is bullshit. So many young queers are stuck in these extremely online Tumblr thought bubbles with only their peers and the influence of terfs. And they'll deny the last part because a lot of them are trans or vocal trans allies, but they'll still perpetuate terf talking points without knowing it.

And they grow up thinking that being identity cops is gonna help keep other queers safe from the bad, weird ones with the labels they don't like. They don't know what real activism means or looks like. Sometimes they'll repost something about Marsha P. Johnson, but they won't really understand.

We *need* radical queer intergenerational perspectives if we want to survive and fight and flourish.

if you gatekeep transness or classify people as "not really trans" you're no friend of mine and you should really consider not being a gender cop

When people start growing alarmist over low birth rates that's a key signifier that they're racists. Immigration could easily make up for declining populations, but what they're hung up on is the color of said babies/citizens

Crypto bubble bursting 

I fear a friend of mine may be experiencing a loss of savings in the crypto crash, which takes out the joy of seeing the bubble burst, rather a lot. Its hard to disabuse people when they've watched a bunch of YouTube videos.

Every financial crisis of bursting bubbles rides on the back of people trying to figure out how to get ahead and actualise their life plans. Rich people hedge their bets and are always fine.

People just don't want to believe our entire economy is based on gambling and group think. Pulling back that curtain is horrifying. Modern life is a casino where the house always wins and its such a disempowering realisation. Capitalist alienation pushes people hard left or right.

So for those who don't know yet, Freenode had a hostile takeover and the volunteer staff has resigned. Most (if not all staff) have created a new network: libera.chat.

##yamahasynths has moved to libera.chat. There is heavy load, so things like registering or even connecting may take a while. Point your client to irc.libera.chat, port 6667 (6697 if using TLS).

There is a relay provided for now for both channels, so both the Libera and Freenode channels receive all msgs.

telemetry discussion subtoot 

i HATE this "we need telemetry so we can UI/UX" line. as a hardware designer, do you know how much better i could make things if i could put a camera in every customer's living room and spy on them?? but i don't, because i'm not a fucking asshole

why did "X is ok and has no ethical issues because it can make Y better" become an accepted view?? "it makes my job easier" is not ever a valid reason to spy on people

STOP DOING TELEMETRY

even opt-in, it normalizes it
