I think today marks the day I've received my first ever racist & homophobic reply on the fediverse.

On the one hand it's impressive it actually took more than a year for it to happen, on the other hand it's just mind-blowing what fucked-up reactions a simple photo of a pink park bench can provoke in some people. 🙄


Reported and domain-blocked the asshole. Also, boosted the bench. If I could, I'd make it the most famous fucking bench in the whole Fediverse. We should call it, the Freedom Bench. Just to piss off all the co-opters of freedoms everywhere.

@byllgrim @fribbledom HAH, good catch. Co-opt appears to be entirely the wrong word to use. There is a word that sounds similar, but which is synonymous with "steal" or "subjugate". For the life of me, I can't think of what it is right now.
