Pinned toot

Hello tech.lgbt, I just switched instances, though I'm making a bit of a fresh start. Not doing a full migration.

I'm a pansexual anarchist who likes computers and feeding people. No gods no masters, arm trans women, etc. Other various interests include souls-like games, languages, and biology.

Looking forward to getting to know this new instance!

well the good news is that there are many linux flavours/distributions for systems with little resources!

so i think this little plan to repurpose old broken laptops for their screens with raspberry pi zeroes might be a live option, if i can’t get people to donate computers to me for my ‘Friendly Computers’ hobby!

when republicans are in charge its your moral duty to stand outside in line for 4 hours to vote them out. when democrats are in charge theyre not in charge for reasons they condescendingly explain you are too stupid to understand

I get such a disgusted look on my face when liberals try to cite made-up blanket ethical rules they pulled out of their ass to try and make it look like they thought through their propositions logically. "Nobody should be harassed just on the basis of their job!" I can smell the false equivalence a mile away. You think a cop getting criticized is the same as a fast food worker getting flak for being two seconds late on an order. Pour out those crocodile tears to someone else.

in my personal experience, i'm more likely to meet an lgbtq+ person who seems like they'd be a good parent, than i am to meet a cis het person with the same sort of energy.

picture this, right. your kid is feigning having a cold every other day because they don't want to go to school. we all know cis het parents who would 'get to the bottom' of that and then never talk about it again- the 'problem' is over, there was no physical illness, get back to school! We see it happen all the time.

we all also know lgbtq+ people who would find out, when appropriate, why they were doing it, in an attempt to understand why they don't want to go to school. basic stuff, but cis het parents just don't go that far from what i've seen and known

Oh, god. Tankies are labeling the mere mention of the Uyghur genocide as sinophobic. ​:blobfoxfacepalm:

Il faut savoir que de 1825 à 1947, la France a obligé Haïti à payer l'équivalent de + de 17 mrd d'euros aujourd'hui. Selon la FR, en se libérant de l'esclavage, les Haïtiens ont "volé" des "biens" français et devaient donc à la FR une compensation pour ce "vol".

De plus, en plus des 17 mrd (150 M de francs à l'époque), la FR a exigé qu'Haïti réduise de 50 % les marchandises qui lui sont exportées.

La pauvreté d'Haïti a toujours été le résultat de vols extérieurs et de la violence impérialiste.

far right / nazi warning 

Watch out for a user that goes by the name of AgentCasey. They are a far right neo nazi that tends to follow a bunch of people they find (reason unknown). And they have accounts on many, many instances so they keep coming back as you block them. Probably going to go private for a bit because of that.
