As a fat cat, I resent people calling billionaires "fat cats". They're not cool and cute like me

moderation stuff, not meta 

why are you more concerned with "fairness" toward racists than you are toward keeping your BIPOC members safe?

moderation is supposed to be about protecting people.

who are you protecting?

uspol, racism 

I once again here to say - KH has done shit things. Biden has also done shit things. Many cabinet members also have mixed records.

You can talk about a person's record of action without being racist and sexist.

That should, in fact, be what you do all the time.

@Siph *boops xyr electric lime snout*
*gets shocked*

oh...

one final thing before i move on, i havent seen it yet but mocking Biden's stutter is ableist. he might be a lot of things and criticism is necessary for them but he won't ever hear you mocking his stutter

your friends who stutter (this includes me, there's a reason i don't speak aloud much) will hear that shit tho. if you're okay with looking your friends in the eye and explaining to them why their stutter impacts their morality then i mean by all means go ahead but otherwise fuck off

four years of fat jokes about trump never touched him but it sure did ruin the entire psyche of fat people being made to feel subhuman, unlovable, and inherently of lesser morals in a society that already actively does this on all levels of our lives.

break your habit of criticizing appearance and ability because otherwise i'm forced to assume you're just a hateful white noise machine, just here to fill in the background gaps with no comprehension of the topics at hand.

poll for Black people, boost ++ 

Poll meant at Black fedi users (newcomers and elders).

Would you be interested in joining a Black-only Masto instance* where older Fedi users could volunteer to give ✌🏾 trainings✌🏾 about online antiblack behavior, how to detect avoid/defend from them, sharing experiences + more general admin/moderation advice for people who would like to run Black/Indigenous instances?

*The instance would be completely defederated from the whole Fediverse, at least for the first weeks/months of its existence.
