When I used to live in New York, I would routinely put myself between dudes that were harassing women on the train.
It wasn't anything loud, or more importantly, putting anyone in more danger. For that moment, I wanted to reduce the harm she got in the time we were in the same space.
I've said this before and I'll keep saying. The most important thing you can do as a person in a privileged social group is harm reduction.
Until one does that, it's all just talk.
im getting communist happy feels.
my coworker who was offered the promotion told them that she doesnt want it and to give it a week to let us prove that a horizontal power structure is best and we don't need a supervisor to do our work, and that we should all get a raise and we will pick up the slack.
recommended instance block: raki.social
suspend raki.social, it's ran by some techbro who seems intent on datamining the fediverse
so far it's tried to follow everyone with two bots, one clearly marked (@riker) and one unmarked as a "social experiment" (@swift)
the person running the instance isn't clear on their intent with these bots, but they have mused on the fact that you can datamine with federation bots (https://raki.social/@33b5e5/100675134230529744) which seems to me like they want to hide their intent
there is minimal collateral from suspending this instance -- only 22 users with 103 statuses, most of the interaction has been said datamining bots
