wow, I'm in a mood, transphobia, liberals
I never again want to hear about how liberal and tolerant and accepting the Delmarva area is just because they tend to vote Democrat.
The culture in the area around DC "tolerates" you as long as you assimilate into cis straight whiteness. My parents always told me to "play the game" and keep my head down when I was younger because of shit like this. It fucks people up and turns them into robots and/or leads to breakdowns.
I'm not sure everyone actually knows, so I'll say this:
The Mastodon "federation" is actually a smaller part of the larger "GNU Social"-network.
Everyone/everything that is on Mastodon is on GNUsocial, which is older and has less uhmmm "guidelines" as to what each instance can do (e.g. up to nominally infinite charatcter-limit per post in some cases and in other cases less than what Mastodon has).
I put "federation" in quotes because it is called that but is actually a confederation.
Any member (instance) may choose to leave the "federation" or to ban any instance from everything on itself, both ways.
That is a confederation.

"you wouldn't download a" trivia (cw: sketchy business practices)
Hollywood-funded anti-piracy association Brein, the people who made the "you wouldn't download a car" ad, tried to stiff Melchior Rietveldt, the musician who composed the music for it, out of the vast bulk of his royalties. They told him the ad would only be shown at a local film festival, then stuck the ad on a bunch of DVDs and acted like they had full right to.
So, like, if you're ever wondering if anti-piracy capitalists hate piracy? The answer is "no". They'll steal and lie seven days a week and twice on Sundays. They just hate seeing people enjoy media without paying them.
Wow, gj tumblr banning all the TERF bodyshaming/harassment blogs and white supremacist propaganda and content-stealing porn scammers and a loosely organized movement of pedophiles and...
...oh. So just like, many of my friends, who do none of these things. And often rely on sex work for income. Gotcha.
Years back when Wolf of Wallstreet came out I remember there being a lot of handwringing that there were going to be men who misinterpreted and didn't understand it was criticizing the people in the movie.
I thought this was super silly and then like 3 months later I met a dude who said it inspired him and made him want to be a better salesman.
#worldAIDSday was yesterday, but today was the first I saw this.
Friends and family of AIDS victims hurl the ashes of their loved ones onto the George H.W. Bush White House lawn in 1992.
