awoo space; difficult questions
i don't mean to keep beating a dead horse with this. i am a strong advocate of both privacy features and content warnings, and i think having a separate, depoliticized "safe-space" instance aside from the mainstream is probably a good decision. but whenever we talk about safe spaces, two questions leap to the front of my mind: (1) safe space for whom? (2) what happens when the personal becomes political? and i always worry about their answers.
i am worried about the way in which boundaries can become closets, and the psychic damage of not being able to live life without always having a warning out front. many of us are queer, i think we know those stakes.
again, i agree with pretty much every decision that has been made. these are just questions.
@marrus_sh I guess I've been viewing it through a different lense of like... I'm pretty mentally healthy in that regard, so I can exist on here and twitter but like... I don't have a particular place to just *be comfortable* without dealing with talk about stuff that I am already aware of and have already thought about.
Masto used to be that place but now we have all the #discourse.
