Here's the thing... and I say this as a recovering sexist and homophobe.

Just because you're a bigot today doens't mean you have to be one tomorrow. You *can* be better. No one is perfect, but you can learn and grow. It's one the best things about being a human being.

The problem with whiteness isn't racism in and of itself. It's that white people *refuse* to learn and change. They still carry the same attitudes from 4 centuries ago.

We see that at play on the fedi everyday.

Yesterday I saw this helmet, created in 1526-29 by Hans Seusenhofer and shaped as a fox's head, and realized that fursuits are older than I thought

if (like me) you ever wondered whatever happend to the top-level domains of former eastern bloc states:
.dd (east germany): withdrawn in 1990, never used "on the net", just in university networks
.su (soviet union): still in use, even though it probably shouldn't be, ~117.000 domains
.yu (yugoslavia): deleted in 2010, ~4000 domains vanished
.cs (czechoslovakia): deleted in 1995, 114 domains vanished

sexual consent 

Sexual consent isn't about your legal credibility but the damage you cause when you don't check in and make sure activities are and stay consensual at all times and other involved people are fine.
Asking for permission for any change of activity is important but it's equally important to stay aware of body language and other non verbal expressions.
Don't wait for a "no" to stop an activity. Don't assume a "yes" is enough to be sure somebody is fine.

fedi meta 

fediverse right now is soft-techbro

most of the influence is still wielded by privileged techy people, and even those who are not your typical cishet white dude, they will still heavily lean privileged respective to their demographics

they still direct the design in terms of toy features and what can be done, rather than from first principles ie what do (especially marginalised) people need

people who have control over how the fediverse develops are too fucking full of themselves

Holy shit. Someone named Isabel Fall took "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" as a writing prompt and produced one of the most fabulous cyberpunk, post-human, trans-human mindfucks I've read in a long time. This is extremely my shit

TIL that in the US, you can get advertisers to stop sending you physical mail by telling the post office "that you, *in your own discretion*, believe [the advertisements] to be 'erotically arousing or sexually provocative.'" (Emphasis mine.)

USPS and the advertiser are not legally allowed to contest this.

So if you tell them that CreditOne mailings just make you *too horny*...
