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 @nik its easy as fuck to change one of those things, not the others. and i think the reason it becomes a fight online is because it becomes obvious what its really about. for example, you listed a bunch of examples of gender/LGBTQ descrimination, but not anti Blackness, which is what master is about. why are you so insistent that we talk less about anti Blackness?

@cosine @waifu just because she didn't mention it doesn't mean she's not against blm, or is "insistent that we talk less about anti blackness", she mentions those specific examples because she's a trans person in eastern europe, where this oppression is taking place.
@cosine @waifu on the flip side, would you get mad at a black person in the usa for not also mentioning trans issues?

@nik @waifu uh yeah, id get mad if i were Talking About Trans Issues and they interrupted to say "it doesn't matter, anti Blackness is the only real issue"

cops murdering Black people in the US is a real issue that waifu didn't mention, and even while i ask people to change their branch names, i am marching, organizing locally, sending letters, etc, so the implication that it's distracting is false. it sure sounds like she'd just rather i ignore anti Blackness

@cosine @waifu i assumed her comment about the branches was focusing on how it's an inconsequential effort (as most people only have so much energy for activism, so if it's being drained on arguing over git branches, it's being wasted when it can be brought towards more significant issues), not about how it's focused on anti blackness (she didn't shit on marching, organizing, sending letters, etc), at least that's how i view it

but anyways she has me blocked so it's not like this conversation could include her anyways

@nik @waifu that's what she said, and to that i responded that one of these things is easy to change. what i then talked about is what she /meant/. you have to be able to see the racist undertones of this stuff so you don't broadcast it. why do you give her so much charity if she has you blocked?
