'JK Rowling was once a beloved children’s author and well on her way to becoming a national treasure. Sadly, her gender critical writings are not protecting women and children from harm, but quite the opposite. They are contributing to a climate of hate towards transgender women and children – people she claims to want to be safe.'

BREAKING NEWS: Key provisions of the PATRIOT Act expired on Sunday after political infighting prevented a vote on free speech and privacy amendments.1 The Senate still has an opportunity to reauthorize the PATRIOT Act next week, but we can stop them.

My good friend @readsteven is currently offering his science fiction trilogy at a pay-what-you-want price!

It's a great series of novels about humanity's first contact with alien species who not just came to visit, but are rather much as guests to have around. gumroad.com/readsteven

Facebook isn’t listening to you through your phone microphone because *it doesn’t need to.* EFF’s @jenuhhveev talked to @USATODAY about all the creepier, more insidious ways Facebook is tracking you online. usatoday.com/story/tech/2020/0

I don't know who needs to hear this, but placing an axe through a computer that deserves it is still hacking

Serious case of the Blue Flu today. There are hundreds more folks out than should be. Perhaps it's contagious?!

Wow. The corruption runs far and deep in this administration....

Agency saved by DeVos appears to have accredited a college with no students, faculty or classrooms

"...the ACICS accredited Reagan National University in Sioux Falls following Trump's inauguration, when its future was still in doubt. Years later, the college appears to have no social media presence and its website is riddled with error pages. The only mention of the college on Twitter was in reference to a politician in Ghana accused of having a fake degree, according to the report."

"Four faculty members listed on the university's website told USA Today they never worked at Reagan and taught at other colleges. Others, including the university's supposed president, appeared not to exist online at all."

birdsite cross-posting (meta) 

it's not hard to articulate why this is: even by way of very well-intentioned people who have interesting things to say, twitter leaking into the stream is almost invariably a vector for grar, bad vibes, interpersonal sniping, dunking, the policing of the eternal correctness ratchet, hyper-manipulative outrage-tuned political news, the howling static of contemporary ideological conflict protocols, click-mongering, celebrity.

basically everything i am here to avoid.

Without our wonderful youth activists, a lot of people would be sitting around wondering what to do.

They are the best amongst us.

Now we need to fight for the right to vote for everybody from age 16.

"The number of birds in the United States and Canada has declined by 3 billion, or 29 percent, over the past half-century, scientists find."
