In FL alone, we know of at least 4 trans or nonbinary lives taken this year: Alexus Braxton, Keri Washington, Royal Poetical Starz, & Jenny DeLeon.

We will honor them all through action and continue to stand beside Trans voices in their fight for justice and equal rights.

Facebook and co., !t 

I deleted my Facebook years ago, I deleted my WhatsApp last year, and I've abandoned my Instagram as well. But, like, my entire family pretty much communicates on WhatsApp and I pulled as many people as I could to Signal but that's as far as it's going to go and I'm pretty much cut off from a lot of communications now.

Should I go back to WhatsApp or should I stick to my guns?

I just found out Billie Eilish is American. I thought she was British this whole time -_-'

Police use face recognition, drones, automated license plate readers, and an arsenal of other invasive tech. Atlas of Surveillance is a searchable map containing thousands of datapoints that allows you to see what is deployed in your area.

@radicalrobit clearly the lesson here is that society was in real trouble as soon as RadioShack went out of business

Jesus' crucifixion proves that the need for a holy sacrifice was always a human need and never, actually for God.

politics opinion 

i hope someone figures out a way to have a society where the media both

1. expresses a variety of view points, including those in opposition to the state

2. doesn't artificially boost or suppress any view points using money or access

politics opinion p2 

i don't want billionaires pushing propaganda, but i also don't want governments deciding that certain outlets are "threats to national security" or "counter-revolutionary" or "undesirable" or whatever

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

Just got my new Asus Zenfone 8 and I'm so happy with it! It's such a nice phone. This is also my first non-Google smartphone ^_^

It's easy to take for granted all the pieces that comprise the fediverse.

I'd like to take a moment to thank a few people who laid the groundwork and/or steward initiatives that benefit projects like @pixelfed and push the fediverse forward.

@bagder - curl developer

@mike - zap developer, nomad(ic identity & protocol wizard)

@humanetech - stewards ethical/humane initiatives

@feditips - unbiased source for topics that affect new and old users
