Let's please be respectful of people who have struggled with and are currently struggling with addiction. Even if your comments are aimed at someone else, sometimes a person in a dark place can be affected by them. Please CW overdose and addiction content.
I say this as someone who has struggled with alcohol and rx drugs, when celebrities die it can honestly trigger relapse and feelings of hopelessness. When Amy Winehouse died *several* people I knew started using again.
CW: the r word
Folks: shitposting is fun -- lord knows I engage in it enough. But please please please reconsider using the term "retard," "libtards," "retarded," etc. Even ironically. The r-word is a hideous slur against people with intellectual disabilities. It doesn't matter if you're not using it against someone with an ID; you're still normalizing the slur used against a particularly vulnerable population. Don't do that. Please do better. ❤️
boost for "fuck landlords", fav for "fuck landlords". you can do both but it doesn't stack
Laurelai Bailey, predatory behavior, abuse
Laurelai's attempt to smear Bofa.lol as transphobic is multi-functional:
It silences and stifles an instance where the admins and users are largely aware of her schemes and abuses, and it makes a rift between the trans folks that are (a very significant) part of Bofa's community.
Laurelai is someone who preys on trans folks and uses her social clout to silence her victims. Trying to silence bofa and label them untrustworthy encourages folks migrate away
Governance: instance suspensions.
Okay, kitty.town and mastodon.starrevolution.org are now suspended.
Laurelai Bailey is an accused serial rapist with documented credible accusers. She is already suspended. mastodon.starrevolution.org is her instance. kitty.town is an instance with a mutual blocking arrangement with hers.
In addition, each have pressed a case against bofa.lol to the point of insinuating a Jewish antifascist is cryptofash.
he/him, cis, generally disappointing on other fronts as well
