attention everyone: I am heterosexual now. that's right, I'm what 'heterosexual' means from now on. if you've been using a meaning of heterosexual that doesn't coincide with me, that sense is deprecated, and you need to use a new word now. may I suggest "yorp"?

#JewsAgainstICE still blockading the Atlanta ICE Field Office! Weโ€™re not moving because every day that ICE is โ€œjust doing their jobโ€ is another day of roundups, concentration camps, family separation, & terror for our undocumented neighbors.

45 has spent $340M on Golf

FYI: It would cost $338M to test every one of Americaโ€™s 225,000 rape kits currently sitting on shelves

So Govt can find $340M for golfโ€”but not to deliver justice to 225,000 Americans who survived rape?๐Ÿค”

Inexcusable

This is a fascinating thread about how IBMโ€™s technology enabled the Holocaust.

Tech companies have repeatedly shown their willingness to place profits ahead of morality. Donโ€™t trust that theyโ€™ll do the right thing this time around. twitter.com/neveragainactn/sta

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

If you want to idolize a French woman fashion designer why not Madeleine Vionnet?

She wasn't a fascist, paid her workers well, and her clothes were divine. During WW2 she closed her fashion house and fled France. twitter.com/notallbhas/status/

Dear @TransferWise@twitter.com Have you implemented an AI that discriminates Africans? Does your platform now assume who my family and friends are? I'd like to know how you came to such a conclusion considering that I've only ever sent money to friends & family in Ghana and Nigeria ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿพ
