2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.
Language isn't the most important aspect of our fight. Changes to our material conditions will always be the priority. But language is a huge part of the performance by which we express and create gender. It is essential to our process of becoming. France, more so than other States, realises this.
