My tv comes today.

I'm kinda hype. It's been a minute since I gamed on an actual tv.

And now that I have an actual gaming PC, it should be pretty cool.

Hey if ever a toot of mine is a problem for you, doesn’t feel right, and you want a CW for it and in the future, go ahead and message me. Usually I’ll delete and redraft. None of my posts are more important than your mental well being

The fedi is a living, breathing example of what happens when white folks lose the privilege of being protected by bigots who run major platforms.

The only thing I'm interested in is forward progress.

I do not care about white guys whining about how and why they can't continue being assholes without consequence.

I do not care about people who want to status of said white guys to rub off on them, so they underwrite their non-sense.

The way forward is clear. Either you do it our you don't.

Anything that doesn't contribute to that is just people putting their biases above progress.

Ha, and we know where that comes from.

Remember, we're not talking about how to increase safety and make our spaces better.

We're 'arguing' with people who benefit from toxic environments, so they simply don't want to do it.

That's the crux of all of these hissy fits being thrown about language, censorship.

We're hitting the core of why people don't want to change and how that is the very thing that enables hate and harassment to continue.

And that core is the same as it's always been. People are just bigots.

The math isn't hard

Ha, folks are just upset their usual tepid and ineffectual responses to bigotry and harassment aren't being believed anymore.

Folks are getting upset because they are not being the benefit of the doubt, but have done nothing to earn it.

That's funny.

Again, either you are about creating a safe space or you're not.

If you're making space for bigots, racists and homophobes to feel comfortable in your space, you're making a choice.

You can't have it both ways.

And if you're wondering why I'm giving cybreDOTspace the side eye.

It's anyone on cybre's right to filter whatever they way, but when they're giving suggestions to bigots who have a history of harassing POCs and women, ha, that's a bit of a red flag.

And this isn't the first time we've seen bigots get space on cybre...

Whew boy. Definitely re-aligning some perspectives tonight.

As anyone on my instance will tell you, I am extremely active when it comes to protecting the beautiful and dangerous people that have so blessed me with the gift of their participation here at Social. I don't fuck around when it comes to that.

So believe when I tell you making spaces safer is VERY possible if one actually puts the effort in to do so.

And the reason I am so critical of places that talk is that I know they just don't. Not b/c it's hard.

They just don't want to.

The reason the fedi is so toxic in a lot of places isn't magic.

Yes, there are always going to be hateful people on the web. That's just a part of being in this space.

But it's prevalence and visibility is directly connected to how many alleged PROGRESSIVES give space for these ideas to spread.

That's the main problem. That's the core of the issue.

A lot of people on the fedi are just full of shit. And it comes out when you actually challenge their commitment to safety and diversity
