hello! i like fanfiction, writing, and linux. lovely to meet y'all 😄 #introductions
Just discovered CryptPad via the FLOSS Weekly podcast. Basically, Google docs without privacy concerns.
CryptPad in their own words:
"CryptPad is a private-by-design alternative to popular office tools and cloud services. All the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us)."
It's also Free software.
Better still CryptPad is on the Fediverse:
"In our sex-steeped culture, the idea that deep, devoted love does not have to involve sex is unfathomable." https://medium.com/@erinhart5/good-omens-is-the-asexual-love-story-ive-been-waiting-for-dec48b3728c4 #GoodOmens
THANK YOU OP, IT'S TRUE AND YOU SHOULD SAY IT
*mutters resentfully* queerbaiting my arse
It'd be cool if other people participated at the same time!
PSA: Citing sources
So, this is worth talking about as we slide further into a rather gross political time.
It is critically important to cite reliable sources when posting about the injustices going on.
This can mean a link to a news article, it can mean saying "I was there and here is what I saw," or whatever. The important thing is that anyone reading it should be able to check the underlying facts, as much as possible.
Also, be skeptical of news analysis, which is basically someone's personal interpretation of the facts.
By making this a habit, and by not spreading outrage-provoking news without sources, we inoculate our social circles against "fake news," and we help stop instigators from spreading misinformation to divert us from the real threats.
Propaganda isn't a bunch of brochures being dropped from airplanes, it's a social media meme.
I look at the world through an aro perspective. That often means asking myself how the world is built around amatonormativity, who that hurts and leaves behind, and what exists beyond it.
While this isn’t a universal aro experience, I think an aro perspective can bring to the front questions like “what if someone never has a romantic partner, what does their life look like then?”. And, oh boy, once you start you can’t stop seeing how so so much of our world is built around the assumption that everyone will have one.
this kind of in-your-face combative messaging addressed at changing harmful behaviors towards queer people is a great example of a large organization doing pride right
NOW THATS WHAT I CALL PUBLIC TRANS IT BABEY
