Fremdzuschreibung von Geschlecht 

Wenn irgendwelche Menschen, die von LGBTAIQ+ keine Ahnung haben, ist mir das ja egal. Wenn aber Menschen, die mich besser kennen, mich trotzdem mit unter "cis Männer" zusammenfassen, tut das durchaus weh.

Fremdzuschreibung von Geschlecht, Twitter repost 

RT @stardust_violet@twitter.com

Wenn ihr "cis Männer" schreibt, könntet ihr das übrigens in sehr vielen Fällen ersetzen durch " Personen, die ich für cis Männer halte"

Oder "Personen, die sich selbst für cis Männer halten" oder gar "Personen, die sich vielleicht nicht für cis Männer halten, das aber auch nicht korrigieren, weil das alles ziemlich kompliziert und so ein Outing auch nicht immer so leicht ist"

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.

debunking some recent "news" about Parler in the west 

You may be seeing headlines that say shit like "Parler is back thanks to this Russian company" or it may be more explicitly russophobic and just say "by Kremlin-linked company" etc.

Fact check: Here's what is actually going on now.
1. Parler has a landing page back up, not their social service.
2. A company called DDOSGuard (which is physically located in Russia, but provides services to anyone with money including many fascists) starts providing them a DDOS protection service (not actually hosting the site, but hiding their ip and taking the bulk of network attacks aimed at them).
3. Western media is more upset that they are Russian than the fact that they are aiding fascists.

Anglosphere journalism sees the word Russia in 2021 and still can't help but start foaming at the mouth and start accusing everything of being a Russian conspiracy. Because they can't conceptualize white supremacy as being a real inside threat to their society, despite their society being steeped in it.

fuck DDOS-Guard but because they provide services to fascists, not because they're ethnically fucking Russian ffs

poll for Black people, boost ++ 

Poll meant at Black fedi users (newcomers and elders).

Would you be interested in joining a Black-only Masto instance* where older Fedi users could volunteer to give ✌🏾 trainings✌🏾 about online antiblack behavior, how to detect avoid/defend from them, sharing experiences + more general admin/moderation advice for people who would like to run Black/Indigenous instances?

*The instance would be completely defederated from the whole Fediverse, at least for the first weeks/months of its existence.
