I’m sick to death of people being precious about #GMO produce. Functionally there is no difference between a grape bred to have little or no seed and a grape that has been modified in a lab for the same thing. Y’all are just scared of science.
You wanna talk about #Monsanto charging for “licenses” for their crops, ok. Talk about agribusiness killing the planet, ok. Talk about corporations copyrighting genetic code, ok. These are all valid concerns.
But the science is sound.
It bears remembering that the sentiment that "if you do nothing, you're complicit" betrays certain unexamined privileges.
Before you express that sentiment, go down the list of things you believe constitute "doing something". Then imagine a reason why a person might not be ABLE to do that thing.
I think you'll discover that "doing something" often requires certain privileges in life, and that "doing nothing" does not, in fact, imply condonement or complicity.

@Gargron if, hypothetically, a Klingon translation of Mastodon were to be made, would it be accepted into the main project?
I can't make any promises at the moment, but it would be cool if it happened.
So I haven't seen anyone I know from the #conlang community here yet. Is that just an artefact of Mastodon being relatively new?
I'm "kechpaja" pretty much anywhere you see that username.
