the US ruling class has mostly decided they can live with Trump, which is just one example of why they are monsters. he's not so bad for business that they feel the need to destabilize the system further by removing him.
and removing him will be destabilizing. that's why no power center is seriously working toward that, _including the Dems_. we must become a power that can make its will heard and exert a price for defying us.
until then nothing meaningful will happen.
@zigg So much this. I’m so glad people don’t have to grow up isolated with no idea that anyone like them is out there and with all of pop and religious culture telling them that they are wrong and bad. I grew up in rural redneck nowhere and I was ashamed and frightened all the time.
Never be ashamed or frightened of who you are. Y’all are beautiful people.
I just want to say, as one of the old people, that I'm super glad the younger folks have really embraced queerness and are making gender their own on a scale we never could.
When I was young, I was very effectively walled off from it all, it wasn't until I discovered some of my online friends were queer in my 20s that I realized there was a larger world out there than the world I grew up in led me to believe.
Better late than never for me, but wow am I glad y'all get that now.

I don't understand how it is that I can wake up feeling pretty good and by the afternoon slide to "Nobody gives a shit about me everything is stupid"
(I know that that's very much not true but)
Gun control Show more
Non Americans who use their lack of school/public mass shootings as a point of superiority are gross and need to stop.
Most americans can do literally nothing about the gun control issues, but nice flex, I guess, reminding us that we can die any time we're anywhere, existing, in groups of anything besides straight white christian men. Like wow that really shows us for teasing about chippies and football and puddings

This stuff makes me feel like I'm sliding into a gentle dementia because I can remember "Merry Fitzmas." And if you don't, you should google it.
Frustration, sads, complaining, dysphoria (all -) Show more
Don't worry, I'll just sit over here, being left out. I get it, I don't seem to be One Of The Girls..
It's cool, I'm not a very social person. And it's not draining on a daily basis to listen to you all chat, occasionally trying and failing to chime in and being ignored. Whatev.

Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:
If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.
CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost 💜?
