I feel like an important inflection point in tech is realizing "users are stupid" is actually "management, clients, developers, or designers did not carefully consider this feature and how it would be used in the real world, and people are just doing their best"

friends repeatedly saying you you're a good puppy to cause a buffer overflow so they can write over that terrible thing in your brain telling you otherwise

This lovely piece that they did of myself, @Timothy, and @shooshy in the middle is adorable! I wanted something of us with our favorite bun, and Niks delivered!

Being privileged and disadvantaged at the same time 

It's really not that hard to understand that you can be disadvantaged and privileged at the same time.

I am disadvantaged by a disabling chronic illness that's taken much of my life away from me. But privileged by my partner and I being in a comfortable financial position, something many disabled people don't have.

I'm disadvantaged by being a woman, but privileged by being a white cis woman. I still experience oppression (sexism, patriarchy), but the oppression isn't as bad as that which a black trans woman will experience (sexism, patriarchy, transphobia and racism).

You don't lose anything by understanding your privilege. With some reflection and honesty, you can gain a better understanding of the intersections of different privileges and disadvantages, and how you can work harder, and be a better ally with others.

Could folks please boost this out as far as possible? I want to get it into gender-critical circles.

Could people send me links to articles about specific incidences of cisgender men legally identifying as women in order to access female spaces and abuse cisgender women?
