"When it's said and done, maybe we'll recognize the sacrifice of healthcare workers, teachers, caregivers, store clerks, or utility workers as patriotism. Maybe we'll give them guaranteed health benefits, build statues, and have holidays for this new class of hero who sacrifice their health and lives for ours. Maybe we'll start to see patriotism more as cultivating the health and life of your community, and less blowing up someone else’s."
Pretty happy with this shot. #wallpaper
A lot of my followers are cis and into software privacy/FOSS so I just want to make it crystal clear that a software dev placing limitations on its use for fascist behaviour is good and not in any way against free software, because a fundamental responsibility of the free-as-in-libre ethos is to *protect & help the oppressed*, and that is itself *in direct opposition to fascism*.

Just started reading Rebecca Solnit's "Men Explain Things to Me" and being raised by feminists in an all women household, I wanted to think I was somewhat woke. Only 16% in and I've come upon so much that I didn't know, truly awful facts. I had to look up "bride burning" when I came across it. Fuck. Some men are assholes, evil. There are many other examples, more and less extreme. Hard book to read, hard subjects to talk about. But necessary.
Pretty happy at how this turned out... #ramen
