Reference to Transphobia, Screenshot from Twitter
Okay apparently some "gender critical" people (read: transphobes) are trying to claim Terry Pratchett would have supported them, and this tweet is an argument against them, a personal anecdote, but most importantly such an emotional and beautiful story, it just made me tear up a little
@prehensile I feel like if they could, they would definitely claim their "metaverse" nonsense to be a sovereign country, so your name on the platform is automatically your legal name... I just hope "being a nation" is not something corporations can easily buy in the near future *side-eyes Nevada*
Okay the verification works now even though I didn't change anything, I guess it was cached or something
Now back on the Fedi! (pending profile setup)
