@Altruest it’s just the beast of any internet space at this point. But sites with a high number of white tech guys or nerds is always roughest on women, especially WOC. I’ve already resigned to putting up with it, but then it has to be a site where I get the news or see something funny at least.
@sydneyfalk @gargron listen, most of the time I repeat words that native English speakers use somewhere if I have seen it in a context where it makes sense. In this case, it was a discussion on how many of us didn’t know a single Trump voter and were surprised he got a single legit vote. I think social media has supplied the marginalized and minority cultures (accidentally) with a microphone. Would be sad to use it only to sing to the choir
I’m not a big fan of being asked for references or links every time I post something. If it seems hard to believe, google it or don’t believe it and unfollow. In general it’s considered bad etiquette to ask a WOC to educate you more or do free labor for you.
@gargron https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz it’s what the banned my friend Paul for, except Paul is Korean/German and insulted a Nazi.
I want a world without marginalized groups.
The far right has literally managed to turn German hate speech laws on the people fighting Nazis. And nobody seems concerned. It blows my mind.
