Staying neutral on important issues doesn't make you inclusive, it makes you complicit.

If you give oppressors a platform, then guess what, marginalized people will leave your platform and you'll soon have a platform of dicks!

As a trans woman I no longer feel safe on the forum, which is why I've asked for my moderator account to be removed.

I hope the few good people who are left will be stronger than me and one day prevail.

@paulakreuzer feel like I've been hearing more and more bad things about Fdroid. 😔

@rufposten

It's a long story.
In short: F-Droid hosts a lot of apps that are an affront to humanity and within the F-Droid community there is no majority to remove these apps.
In internal discussions people are defending the indefensible.

A little background can be found in this discussion:

As in many discussions @brainblasted 's take is especially worth reading.

@paulakreuzer @brainblasted
Thanks for clarifying. Seems that's really an important issue. I would say this will be the most frequent and most important question while the fediverse goes mainstream. If the answer is "we're failing at hate speech" the network will stay niche.

Uh, now that Spinster has been removed from Fdroid has the situation changed?

Afaik there are still enough problematic apps on F-Droid and even if they slowly removed them all one by one after intense discussions that doesn't really speak for F-Droid as a very welcoming community.

@steko I just saw you have already asked the same question. See my answer above.
