Manchester's new "we'll actually listen to you!" gender service formally opened today. ^_^

"The service is initially focusing on supporting people who are aged 17 or over, registered with a GP in Greater Manchester and eligible for NHS treatment, currently on a waiting list for a gender clinic, and have not yet had their first appointment."

Found on Twitter.

This is fantastic.

People are confusing 5ghz Wifi channels with the 5G broadband network, so they're buying Faraday cages at sucker prices to put around their routers to block the evil mind-controlling 5G radiation.

With predictable, hilarious results!

Certain bits of the world have made a lot more sense to me since @kimadactyl voiced the term "representative innovation". People who talk about innovation tend to want things that look like it but have no risks. It's just a word for selling things, not doing things. Actual change? Heretical.

This even before you get to the notion of "Progress! ➡️🗽💪 (pls ignore colonialism no stop don't think about it)"

The industry wide response to Epic's shenanigans says rather too much about how complicit in the awfulness it is.

Right cause, wrong approach is absofuckinglutely not the right take when a billion-huffing megacompany weaponises it's fanbase, largely made up of kids..

It's "this is fucking disgusting and needs to stop now". Not that one.

an autistic Asian man
calling out the rest of the bike industry as racist

on the engineering tolerances
of a specific bike journalist's vagina
