What is it with people moving to Seattle and immediately either becoming a fascist or a bottom? Why are they both in tech? What is the Seattle to bottom pipeline and how do we destroy it? Are yall ok?

@melt do you want a serious answer btw? I could go into my opinion about the techbro fasc vs. queer bottom ravers dynamic going on here in Seattle but I don't wanna go on a whole spiel if this isn't a serious question ;x

@viomi it was not a serious question but now im actually curious

@melt i was gonna write more but that's the answer so

hang on let me type up the long version

ok thanks for coming to my ted talk now you know why we're all bottoms in a constant war with techbro fascists. welcome to seattle

@viomi damnit i kinda wanted to live in seattle if i moved to the US cause of the climate being similar to the UK

guess there's the rest of the state?? idk, probably will never happen anyway

@BalooUriza why are you such a condescending asshole jfc

I already shit on u the other day for telling a trans girl she wasn't doing good enough to "win allies" after mansplaining shit at her. now you over here, with no idea how much I've traveled, trying to talk down at me about it?

Why are you on masto ugh. Pls go away do not reply to this or any of my posts again thx

@cantinto @steph oregon has actual fascists and also there's nonstop screaming downtown portland I,, do not recommend even if it's like 25% cheaper than seattle

@steph @viomi Yeah, I'd stick to the wet side of the northwest. The dry side is where people disappear.

@viomi obv the difference being the massive in/outflux due to being less isolationist

@presolace yes. we even have the thing where our queer community is getting more and more dominated by tech normies. it's cursed. we will literally be SF in no time

@viomi it hits this interesting cultural spot as well where... generations of queers (as in, by their involvement/coming out/etc, not their age) are drawn to the hub for the reasons stated and people in the mid/lower middle class run into all these queer politics for the first time. they have the chance to help the community, but running into the poorer folks + infighting, whatever, they either (actually) 'lean in' or they get touchy and liberal and lean into the fascist policies you mentioned
