#introduction It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs. I've been procrastinating on an open-source sci-fan universe for the past 9 years, and a website about it for 6; Stopped working on them to run some Tumblr RP blogs for a while.
I'm very asocial, so there won't be much interaction from me unless I think I can add something useful/helpful.
@thufie - you know shit has gone sideways in America when people are debating what exactly constitutes a "concentration camp". :(
someday game designers are gonna realize that making augmentations make you less human is actually a horrible, bigoted mechanic and the best tradeoff mechanic for cyberware in rpgs is the compatibility headaches you get from reconciling seven different networking protocols with each other and your own biology without it all shutting down
Christians vs. LGBT
@Lexi because the bible wasn't taught to them, it was abused into them. they learned a series of talking points and what are considered appropriate or inappropriate responses to those talking points. they are taught that respect means never questioning authority.
this is how conspiracy theorists are born, and you'll find quite a lot of them identify as christian. what they don't learn is the difference between fiction and reality.
fascists; punching, milkshaking, blocking
Punching fascists/nazis is a form of cultural self defence.
Milkshaking fascists/nazis is a form of cultural self defence.
Hardcoding blocks against fascists/nazis in networked software is a form of cultural self defence.
Fascists and nazis are actively working on destroying other cultures.
Fighting back is cultural self defence.
Friday's xkcd is blunt but fair: it's very hard to secure any part of a modern computer stack, and we depend on all of it: https://m.xkcd.com/2166/
fascist culture wars
i will not let fash take the spelling "fren". goddamnit. i feel like every day these fuckers lick something and declare "this is mine now." don't let them have it! symbolism matters and their feeble attempts to taint symbols like bread, clowns, and an adorably misspelling of "friend" can be overcome. together, we are strong! ✊
You have the right to say stuff, but you don’t have the right to make others listen to you, to use their platform to say stuff (freedom of association), to harass people with your speech
If others consider your speech abuse they are well within their universal human rights to block the heck out of it just like with other unwanted forms of speech such as spam.
Noone complains if an app takes a stand against spam so why with nazis?
