fediverse meta, instance block, harassment and violence (boost with CW)
Fellow admins of the Fediverse, you should consider blocking kiwifarms.cc, instance-wide and immediately.
Kiwi Farms is a far right online forum dedicated to harassment, doxxing and gaslighting. They are *very* dangerous. Some of their favorite target have been harassed by them for years and they love to target vulnerable people.
They opened a Pleroma instance some months ago. Suspend them and be careful.
To be fair, I thought most people blocked them right on the spot. But it seems a lot of admins are ever unaware of the existence of Kiwi Farms or unaware of the existence of their instance, kiwifarms.cc.
Unlike Gab's users, most Kiwi Farms' regulars are actively malign and may actively seek people to harass. That's why I strongly suggest you to suspend kiwifarms.cc instance wide if you are an admin.
Purism Librem 5
Here's a reminder that if you're in Europe and have ordered a Purism Librem 5 phone, you have 14 days to request a return and refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations. Otherwise, you've helped fund a company that willingly hosts hate speech in the fediverse.
You can also request this refund before it even arrives, that's what I did x
high alert for CO trans men, HIV threat, please boost
There’s some middle-aged white dude hitting up trans men in Denver for sex, even offering to pay, for the sole purpose of infecting trans men with HIV and herpes.
He’s primarily hitting people up via Instagram and has been reported to the Colorado Department of Health but stay vigilant, everybody.
Stop using TikTok, their moderation policies ban pro-LGBT content even in countries where homosexuality has never been illegal
(they're also chinese so that is a can of worms in of itself)
A look at a common ableist behavior
When someone expresses confusion and asks for an explanation of something, often times many people respond with something along the lines of "if you don't understand how [blank], then I can't help you."
This is ableist.
It runs on the assumption that everyone thinks and processes things the exact same way you do and shames the other participant for not being able to understand.
If you are unable to properly explain a concept, it is best to simply say so.
"Sorry, but I can't explain this," is fine to say.

Seems to me that there's a troupe of alt-right nerds who go around from controversy to controversy, at least claiming to buy whatever game that's being called out for having openly bigoted content and/or openly bigoted devs.
Part of it's just plain trolling of course, hoping to upset people with actual concerns. Part of it's signalling to their own in-groups how they're sticking it to the SJWs. And part is the same "love boming" strategy that TERFs use.

Ok I’m posting this for a friend! My friend is BROKE, he was homeless a few months ago and is living with family now. Unfortunately for him he can never turn down an animal in need and has rescued himself a very sick kitten who was literally thrown in the trash on the side of a back road in PA. he could really use donations to help care for the little guy. Plz give if you can, boost if u can’t. I’ll post pics when he sends to me. https://www.facebook.com/780431215427538/posts/1694422077361776?sfns=mo
I’ve been hearing this whole “the kids will save us” line since I was a child myself. In the 1980s.
What that line means is “I can’t be bothered to lift a finger, so I’ll make someone else take the responsibility”.
I'm 39 years old. If the people who had said that about my generation as children had decided to actually do something about either climate change or white supremacy, imagine where we’d be by now.

The Elderly are not our enemies. The Elderly are neglected and abused at extremely high rates, and most of them aren't bourgeois or landlords! I know this is a shocking fact to some of you, but stripping people of their ability to influence politics because they're old is bad!
Get some class consciousness!
Politicians think it's disrespectful when you don't let them disrespect you.
Judges think it's disrespectful when you don't let them disrespect you.
Cops think it's disrespectful when you don't let them disrespect you.
The boss at work thinks it's disrespectful when you don't let them disrespect you.
Teacher think it's disrespectfull when you don't let them disrespectful you.
Parents think (towards their children) it's disrespectfull when you don't let them disrespectful you.
The problem is: authority and that is why some choose anarchy
re: Climate Change/Race/Feminism
So anyways, let me remind you that @blkstarseed has the range to discuss this in ways frankly most of us do not.
Plain n simple.
Listen to Black women/femmes. Listen to Indigenous women/femmes... that know the land and saw the writing on the wall ages ago.
re: Climate Change/Race/Feminism
The USA did this to Puerto Rican women in the 70's....it forcibly and under false pretenses sterilized a third of the women on the island.
Because how else could Puerto Rican's participate in capitalism if the competition amongst the workers isn't at a perfect number....
