Queer terminology and transphobic slurs 

Been thinking lately about how "girldick" is a fucking awesome word representing trans reclamation of our own bodies and our own sexualities, whereas "dickgirl" is a creepy slur straight from chaser territory.

Remember, the girl owns the dick. The dick doesn't own the girl.

Laser mice, but they're the animal kind of mouse.

If you want to leave GitHub due to their recent bad behavior but still need a presence there, you can absolutely do that.

What FOSS developers provide them is credibility. If you move your cool projects elsewhere and mirror them to Github with a pointer to the real repo, the message is clear: you're only on Github because you have to be.

Boycotting $BIG_COMPANY 95% of the time is almost as effective as boycotting it 100% of the time; this isn't an all-or-nothing deal.

If you still use GitHub as your main place to host your projects, reconsider.

Git is made to be decentralized.

Use it.

I wonder how many mathematicians who specialize in graph theory are also polyamorous

Something about capitalism that particularly grinds my gears is when corporations make threats to their business model illegal through shit like DRM and anti-piracy laws, halting egalitarian technological progress through the coercive force of the state.

We could all have full control of the technology we're sold and the information we have, for sharing, repairing and improving, with our current technology. The law and the interests of those in power are holding us back as much as old monarchs who tried banning the printing press for undermining their stranglehold on knowledge.

We could live in a world where technology serves us and not someone in a position of power, and where knowledge is freely available to everyone regardless of status, but capitalism, the state, and hierarchical debt arrangements which depend on coercion hold us back.

So fuck this shit, become a pirate and practice radical mutual aid with your favorite and most needful creators supporting them directly.

addendum:

If people just wait for the next DRM, the next antipiracy crackdown, etc instead of taking a social analysis with a stated ideal position and seeking it, then we're always on the back-foot trying to regather support for every slightly rehashed attack on autonomy. It is reactionary, and for every step forward there are two steps back. Take a position with a stated end goal and a way to identify threats to autonomy within an ideological framework before they have a chance to take hold, and we begin to have real power.

I want a society which doesn't embed social hierarchies in the operation of machines and seeks an egalitarian universal right to information for all. Not just another fight against new DRM laws.

corporate hell, microsoft / minecraft news

tl;dr:
- mandatory migration to microsoft accounts, as in you will lose access to the game you bought if you don't
- hinted at "more outfits to show off" - paid skins?
- reasons are a few things that wouldn't require this (2fa, "all pc minecraft games on the same account", improved parental controls)
- they'll throw a cape at you for migrating

It should not be legal for websites to jank in such a way as to make you click accept instead of reject on a consent dialog.

Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

Endermen just want to place brick and ride minecart and not be perceived by man and honesty who doesn’t
