Pinned toot

Based on an idea I had last night.

Description: An animated gif (very slow animation, no flicker) shwowing a (mocked up) difficulty selection screen from a video game.
It cycles through "Medium", "Hard", "Impossible", "Skip combat" and "Easy", while the description box to the right says "Play the game as it was meant to be played.", no matter which difficulty is selected.

Original file (not ugly-compressed): f.d9.lv/difficulty.gif

Agitating against landlords, posters, large file warning! 

It used to be an ad (second image), now it's propaganda!

@s0 if I may add:
Ridiculous, absurd, intense, extreme, surprising, worrying, ignorant, thoughtless... I could go on. The English language is full of excellent adjectives! Use them, folks. You don't need to default to the handful that punch down, because of habit or a lack of imagination on your part.

reduce your ableist language (contains examples of same) 

There’s a *lot* of ableist language in common parlance. These words and similar ones exist as slurs towards neurodivergent folks in particular. Try pushing yourself to replace/eliminate them.

crazy, insane, mental ➡️ wild, surprising, hectic
dumb, stupid ➡️ foolish, silly
idiot, moron, dumbass ➡️ bigot, asshole, fool

In addition, you are encouraged to think through what you’re trying to say better, and address what the real issue worth criticising is. And if you can’t rephrase it, maybe it didn’t need to be said at all.

LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

Re-releasing these because they keep changing / being improved:

at_ok and boost_ok for when these interactions are permitted by the poster.

dont_at_me (or at_no) and boost_no for when these interactions are not permitted by the poster.

You will have seen some of these before, this is nothing new, just rage love's version. Released under WTFPL. Please use them freely.

I really recommend learning typography. there's no upside to it and it makes many things look way worse

FINISHED! (Aside from washing and ironing, and choosing a frame so I can decide how to sign it.) The pattern is Mars by StitchingLand, it's about 20 cm across, and 10437 stitches. The photo doesn't capture how pleasing the texture really is, so many stitches so close together is deeply satisfying.

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

disability meta, ableism 

@kimdanes i don't remember who said this, so i'm sorry for not giving credit here. but someone said something about this like... "abled people don't need oven mitts. you know, those oven mitts are just holding you back. all you have to do is subject your hands to burning heat over a long period of time and eventually you'll grow the callouses needed to grab the pan without hurting yourself. and you'll be stronger for having had that experience."

Maybe… I actually hate living in a city?

Oh no, did I catch cottagecore!?

BBC, transmisia, negative 

So, a couple weeks back, the BBC's LBGT+ support page quietly dropped three trans-specific helplines:

bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/

At the time, the reason was unknown even to the corporation's internal Pride Network.

Now, we hear the reason has been officially given - confirmation that they were 'dropped due to “audience complaints” relating to the “increasingly contested issues relating to trans issues and children”'.

pinknews.co.uk/2020/07/30/bbc-

Fuck that with a rusty chainsaw. Removal of those support lines gives clear support to those who *don't need those helplines*, and unambiguously aligned management against trans people. It's not coincidental that with the ramping up of TERFs in the press has come a sharp rise in harassment and violent attacks against trans people; either the BBC supports that, or they oppose it.

Their complaints page:
