The departure of @bea is proof that the fediverse is not universally the amazing savior-of-the-socials that a lot of you think it is. I am very glad if you’ve found a safe place. I am very glad if you’ve found a community. But this place can be harder on people than the places we fled and we do not protect or defend people the way we should. We turn tribal and nasty and drive people away. I am guilty of this too particularly if you know my older alts. We all need to do better, be better.
