this is your irregular reminder that an apology comes with a change of behavior or it wasn't an apology~

should just set up a cron job to post "Your experiences are not universal" once a week or somethinh

sexual assault and rape apologia in the punk scene 

interesting reading a band's response to someone coming forward about being sexually assaulted and clocking the DARVO without even hearing the other side

genuinely impressive that people can be so absolute shit and still have rape apologists stand behind them. but i guess that's the whole idea of rape apology

in any case, if you've been a fan of teenage bottlerocket (and idk if we know anyone who is), it's probably time to take a look into what's going on and reevaluate

Good news. I bet the tech industry (including Deer) probably could have avoided this if they had been less greedy and evil but then they wouldn't be capitalist

queer exclusionist discourse, mentions of ableism and fatmisia 

Shout out to tumblr for pointing out that "queer is a slur", "you're not disabled, you're differently abled", and "don't call yourself fat" are the exact same thing. "No, you're bad for being you. Pretend to be someone else for my comfort."

I'm looking for resources around trans folks and cancer risk, for a super secret project. Anything to do with breast or ovarian cancer, HNPCC/Lynch syndrome, prostate cancer, or anything else that has guidelines specific to trans people, hit me up!

...i think that alex gets more vibrant colors in the mind's eye than i do

which also partly explains why we've been feeling significantly less synaesthetic over the past couple years, as i've taken over more front/host duties

RETRO COMMUNITY, please retweet. If anybody can be in Houston this weekend there's a 'computer museum' that's liquidating everything they have. Almost everything is pre-Y2K including some DEC stuff and what looks like AS/400 equipment. Listing: @Foone

It's come to our attention that folks are missing quite a bit of Monsterpit's commit history. We don't have everything preserved, but we do have:

Always remember to gently the kobolds and that big tails never fail, folks.

My own body? In this economy? Hell no, a bunch of us share

the exclusion of queer people based on them not fitting some "traditional" definition of queerness really goes against the basic idea of queerness, does it


sysmeds really are like "hey this cringe subreddit isn't an excuse for ableism"

"but not having a mental illness is a good thing"

actually extremely excited for our brass tubing to come in soon

making physical things happen is great (in this case, nerf barrels to get a better air seal and fling foam faster)

maybe we should take up a fiber craft after we move somewhere

okay fine this is a hot take 

corporate contributions to open source software are what are killing the commons that was once dotted with freeware and shareware and is now a wretched battleground of licensing attorneys and market share statistics and dev mindshare.

taking money from corps to keep your open source project financially stable is what it is, but if you think for a second that using their sponsored framework or stack in your open source project isn't directly assisting their bottom line you're fooling yourself.

Perhaps a hot take, but, as FOSS devs making tooling/libs, we shouldn't be annoyed that people are asking for support in our issue trackers. We're making tools for engineers, and if they can't figure out how to use them, our documentation needs work.

frankly i think cis people should go get their gender markers changed to X en masse so we can just get rid of the field in 5 or 10 years

our trrs/usb cable order came with a coaster?? used to stickers for most things and magnets for rockauto orders, but that's a new one

what is up with anarchists and letting the perfect be the enemy of the good

or rather, the good being the enemy of their preferred solution

the existence of a $1000 personal homeless shelter is not an argument against installing decent benches when i'm saying we should do both (and also expropriate investment properties and summer homes) because people need both
