Judge rules key federal sex work laws unconstitutional thestar.com/news/gta/2021/04/2

An Ontario Superior Court judge has declared unconstitutional legal provisions that ban sex workers from being able to work safely, including by being able to advertise on third-party platforms, hire security, work together and communicate with clients.

[...]

“The legislation allows commercial sex work to continue,” Sutherland wrote in his decision, finding that the law breaches the right of sex workers to life, liberty and security of the person.

Some people claim that instance-blocking weakens the fediverse, and undermines the point of federation.

This is the opposite of the truth.

The point of federation is that it limits the accumulation of power: no single instance can control fedi, because users can always switch instances without leaving fedi.

This is why fedi and fascism are fundamentally opposed -- and why the ability to block fascist/abusive instances is the very heart of federation's power to serve its users.

years ago i used to have a nice pair of long fingerless gloves which were great for typing and keeping my hands and forearms warm. they looked cool too. they’re long gone though. my hands are so cold when i type lately ☃️
