What's the word for the thing (*) where you used to like a thing and now you don't particularly care for it and you spend precious moments of your lifespan searching on why that particular thing sucks because you want to make peace with your decision not to like that thing anymore.

I just programmed an open source tool called semiphemeral that lets you automatically delete your old tweets, except for the ones you want to keep. Would be cool to add support for making your toots semiphemeral too, one day... micahflee.com/2019/06/semiphem

"A Google employee spoke with the Bay Area Reporter on the condition of anonymity about the current mood among LGBTQ Googlers, saying by phone that, "I'm really worried that they [company leadership] don't know how unsustainable this is. They want to have it both ways: to monetize the engagement that comes from really odious content, but to bear no responsibility for it. And all of us queers who work here see how they're getting away with making money off people who hate us while doing nothing to stop them. Meanwhile, most queer creators' channels are demonetized or marked 'adult' because they use words like 'trans.' Google has no right to be at Pride. They're just capitalists. They don't care."

“My gender is not up for debate. I am a woman. Any trans discourse that does not proceed from this initial assumption — that trans people are the gender that they say they are — is oppressive, regressive, and harmful.”

@therealraccoon I never liked the guillotine iconography and its appearance in recent years is an ominous sign. I think it comes from people's frustration with an entrenched elite and a desire for genuine change.

I've been around on the "open web" for a long time and so I remember that not so long ago ISIS was parading its gruesome spectacles on some sites. Guillotines don't bring liberation. They bring fear and terror.

- guillotine jokes are not funny
- actually deploying guillotines would be a mere inversion of power dynamics, not the abolition of rulers
→that's very reactionary and in no way anarchist
