Somebody gave our Android app a 1-star review on the Play Store because "there is LGBT" [sic]
@Gargron The bar to having an opinion is lower than the bar to graduating high school, or even middle school, really.
@Gargron congratulations on your excellent app and for fostering an LGBT friendly community. Don’t let people like that troll making the review pull you down.
Mastodon is an excellent platform, and if the android app is anything like the iOS one, the app is excellent as well.
Fundamentalist Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, … as much as they hate each others, have surprising many common things between, e.g. LGBT hate, or more general, hating anyone who does not 110% conform to their idea of perfectness.
@yacc143 @flutergork @Gargron totally agreed, the basic foundation of abrahamic religions is hatred of others who are different from them, even they hate each other amongst themselves just because they have different organization or diff mazhab or diff sect. I'm referring to #islam. Abrahamic religions are toxic as hell, inhumane & barbaric. Homosexuals EXIST long before the abrahamic religions being established, yet they want to kill all #lgbtq people. How peaceful their religions are. 🙄
@TomboyGirl_id @Gargron Just going to say that's some nasty Islamophobia you have going there and, news flash, none of the Judeo-Christian faiths are particularly good about it. Christianity happens to be the biggest of them, so uh, just by the sheer odds, maybe unpack why you'd think it's something from a very small minority of the English speaking world than the vast majority of religious people?
@Gargron @TomboyGirl_id@mastodon.social Fair enough, and I understand why there's good reason for anger there.
I can admit when I'm wrong.
@Gargron from what I gathered from LGBTQ+ friends on Twitter those who used Mastodon before encountered hatred and bigotry toward them which included bans and smears. I understand the instance admins set rules and guidelines though its given Mastodon a reputation as trans/homophobic.
@Gargron I mean, that's kind of a given that any social media app there will be people that are apart of many communities including LGBTQIA+.
The beauty of Mastodon is that you can interact with as many or as few people of any lifestyle, beliefs, thoughts, etc as you would like. People are getting a little weird, huh.
@Gargron@mastodon.social haha are they gonna leave the world by committing suicide because LGBT exist on the world😅
@Gargron Not that google would ever do anything but shouldn't such a review be removed on grounds of containing discriminatory speech?
@Gargron What is wrong with people? Sometimes I seriously wish I could just lay down and die rather than listen to this woke bullshit.
