in a world where hungary banned gender transition, ukraine banned sex ed, poland wants to ban "lgbt ideology" and slovakia wants to restrict abortions

y'all spend two weeks arguing about the default name of a github repo?????

I don't think it's politics that tires me out, it's just the fact that everyone argues about bullshit all the time, only to let the real problems rot our society more and more

@waifu@nulled.red Well, I wouldn't really expect someone from the US to prioritise issues in Hungary over local or international (one can argue it is international by being systemic though).
But intentionally inventing offensive connotations to words to then fight them is so Don Quixote I can't find any good reason for this no matter how hard I try.
I stumbled upon this video: https://youtu.be/igtLqhX4BCA, that argues the word "marijuana" is offensive, and even it makes a better point.
It's like people are so unsure what is and isn't offensive they will use their personal judgement no more – if someone on the Internet says it is then it is.
I've seen so much interesting logic around the Putin's upcoming reset. Seeing even more level-headed reasoning is making me anxious.

True, so you better be supporting Black Lives Matter

> so you better be supporting Black Lives Matter
@waifu I don't know enough about everything that happens under that name, and it's not really up to anyone specifically I guess. So I wouldn't expect you to sign up for it all, and I hope you don't expect that from me (the notice's a bit ambiguous).
But I think we can all agree on that police brutality is a thing, black people's lives do matter and George Floyd should've been alive today.
As far as I know, that's the idea.
