I think today marks the day I've received my first ever racist & homophobic reply on the fediverse.
On the one hand it's impressive it actually took more than a year for it to happen, on the other hand it's just mind-blowing what fucked-up reactions a simple photo of a pink park bench can provoke in some people. 🙄
@fribbledom wow I'm really sorry that happened :( it shouldn't happen ever and that bench is great
@fribbledom ugh that's awful, I'm sorry
@fribbledom You are a fucking white cis male
Well, people can be totally dumb sometimes
@fribbledom we have a lot of pink benches here!
@fribbledom Did you delete it or something?
Nope, about to report it though. If you can't see it, maybe this particular user/instance is already blocked by fosstodon.org?
@fribbledom Hm, is there direct/private messaging on here?
@fribbledom If so send it to me in a private/direct message. I'm all sorts of curious now.
You can see it here:
Amazing. Who do I need to block?
Wow, now I'm curious what replies I'm not getting to see here. I only see one clearly offensive reply.
@fribbledom Wow. Did a park bench call them gay as a child or something
@byllgrim I don't care. They didn't reason themselves into that position in the first place. Reason isn't going to fix them.
@fribbledom man I'm grateful my instance is good cause I can't see them 😣 I'm sorry you're dealing with that shit
@fribbledom *opens in browser and looks*
Wow both homophobia and antisemitism in one go. Damn.
@byllgrim sorry my not wanting to see antisemitism and homophobia is disappointing
@scoots What? That is not the thing that I said I was disappointed about! I don't think you are accurately representing what I said.
@fribbledom Wow, I'm not sure whether I already had that jackass blocked or whether my instance defederated with his, but I'm sure not complaining
@fribbledom unfortunately it pretty much being an autoparody doesn't help..
@fribbledom Retooting the gayest bench for support.
@fribbledom dude I've been chatting with some of the freespeechextremists lately. They say things like: homosexuality is consequence of having a shitty family; the majority of child molestations are done by homosexuals; social cohesion and family values are destroyed by homosexuals therefore causing suffering to society's citizens.
@byllgrim thats gonna be a no from me dawg
@fribbledom Reported the lowlife.
Reported and domain-blocked the asshole. Also, boosted the bench. If I could, I'd make it the most famous fucking bench in the whole Fediverse. We should call it, the Freedom Bench. Just to piss off all the co-opters of freedoms everywhere.
@vertigo it wasn't a good catch, I was just confused
Haven't got any antisemetic comments yes. But I know they are on the way. The big commercial social networks automatically block them but some times one slips through.
What makes we really sad is that there is a company that I really want to work for, but I know I have no chance of getting hired because of my religion.
When you're such a twat you get "triggered" by a pink park-bench.
@fribbledom Curiously until you linked the instance I could not see that, and I don't think I have that instance blocked. I wonder why that's happened.
