We can talk about air quality and that can be useful, but sudden faux-concern about screenshots is a way to re-route the discussion away from the main issue. The person who criticized popstar boosted a bunch of fedichive screenshots yesterday. She's not morally opposed to screenshots unless it makes her look bad.
All she had to say was "I'm sorry I was more concerned with the optics of witches.live than supporting your effort to protect everyone against racism."
There once was a woman named BBQ Becky. She passed by a PoC family having a picnic in the park and ordered them to stop grilling on the publicly available grill. She said she was concerned about "air quality."
The baffling criticism of popstar has as much to do with screenshot etiquette as BBQ Becky's behavior had to do with "air quality." It's not about air quality.
"Levels of carbon-14 in the atmosphere rose sharply as a result of nuclear testing and dropped precipitously once the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty was signed in 1963. As a result, cells that were “born” during times of high carbon-14 levels can be precisely dated because subjects living during this period incorporated carbon-14 into the DNA of newly generated cardiomyocytes. The results indicate that, contrary to traditional teaching, cardiomyocytes renew throughout life at a very low rate."
The fact that there was a kid in the culdesac who's best friend was a plank of wood with some crayon marks on it, and the other kids liked him more than the eds is saying something
The Matrix is unrealistic because it's a movie where a black man and a woman tell a straight white man that everything he knows is wrong, and he just accepts that.
There was a product recall on the marketplace of ideas. They warn you that fascism causes harm to its consumers and their surroundings.
this is directed at a lot of the "bigger" accounts, specifically those who know what i'm talking bout.. like i get not wanting to be involved in what took place today (though it's not just today it's a culmination and layers over time) and saying "w/e drama, it'll blow over." but nah. like. if you're just gonna let the let it go and absolve those who were defending racists, have frequently gaslighted those criticizing them, if you're gonna be silent on it, then tbh youre part of the problem and if you're quicker to defend that party, you got some shit in yourself to decolonize and work on. Call out this shit when you see it happening. idc what ur connection to the person is. Don't take a backseat to it just because you're comfortable where you are. This is why I've gotten in so many fights with white supremacists in public spaces. Because no one stands up against it, and so as a person of color I am forced to. Don't be complicit, don't be an accomplice.
It's not counterproductive to alert people to danger on the fediverse.
friends don't let friends join harassers' instances.

In the interest of being clear, I'm gonna define the Am as being worth $0.004167.
According to Amazon, its lowest-paid fulfillment-center workers earn one Am per second. That works out to $15 per hour.
Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, earns 597,312.215 Ams per second, as of seven months ago.
Bezos's workers earned 1 Am per second. Bezos earned nearly 600,000 Ams per second.
Tell me again how capitalism is good for humanity.

Reminder: "oh, we don't talk about money" / "we don't really compare salaries here" / etc. is literal capitalist propaganda designed to keep you from recognizing the true value of your labor.
Insist on a frank discussion of the compensation you and those around you receive for your time and effort.
There's commercials for a production of Fiddler on the Roof that are trying to sell the play as "A celebration of Life, Love, Laughter, and 'Tradition!' :D" and I'm just over here like " ... It's about a Jewish community driven from their homes by pogroms."
happy #Wenbiesday from these medium titty goth sweethearts 😘😘
I really, really do not like when the definitive fan wiki for a work is on Wikia…
Just brought the Demon mask to Mr. Li, and at the end of the cutscene called it that he's going to be behind the Demons. Looked it up and yep he's a baddie :(
