hello if you still use chrome i gently recommend giving firefox a chance. i gave up on it a few years back but now that i'm using it again i think i'm here to stay. it's not perfect but neither is chrome, and it's actually beating chrome in speed in some areas these days
also google is about to seriously hinder adblocking extensions in favour of letting their own ads and tracking shit slide through

I'm sorry but there's certain things
kids shouldn't see at pride. When
impressionable Igbtq kids see gay
bankers and cops flaunting their
lifestyles at the parade, they get the
wrong idea that queer liberation is
possible within capitalism

hey all, i wrote a big old guide to the fediverse over on my blog. we got a lot of very confused and unfamiliar people ‘round here today and i figured this’d be helpful.
it covers what the fediverse is, how it’s different from twitter, your options, and the general expectations of you as a user. feel free to link to it, rehost it, whatever. boostable link here as well.
@GreenandBlack hot take: there is no difference between a private company and an authoritarian socialist state: in both cases you have no democracy, an overblown bureaucracy, you don't own your means of production, you do stuff that makes no sense to please the upper management and you are paid peanuts for your time. Oh, and everything can be taken from you at the whim of your boss.

political hot take
the legality of an action should not have any bearing at all on your opinion of that action
shitty actions are not less shitty because they're legal
illegalizing something good does not stop it from being good
if your defense of your action is "it's not illegal for me to do this", you're admitting you have no justification for your action
Yes, white people, you actually have to put some honest work into making sure the fedi does not become a haven for bigots.
The core of the problem isn't that the fedi has hateful people. They are always going too be around.
The problem is that people that are in a position to help with the issue usually don't and just choose to hide.
That's how intolerance and hate perpetuates itself. It exploits the gap of indifference.
We can be better. The question is why don't we.
PSA, danger to trans people, please boost
There’s a new browser extension called shinigami eyes that is supposed to be used to mark “pro LGBT” and “anti LGBT” people on social media
unfortunately, it’s dev seems to be a TERF, and TERFs are using it to out trans people. I’ve been outed on facebook in an area where this could ruin my life or get me killed
watch yourselves out there, comrades
