Art project idea:
"Gendered" bathrooms with e-paper signs that change to different arbitrary symbols every day.
Symbol pairs will be chosen so that each day most people will manage to fit in but each day someone else would actually prefer a third/forth/fifth option.
Examples: Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Apples vs. Bananas, Vim vs. Emacs, Triangles vs. Squares, Coffee vs. Tea, …
you get the idea…
@sdrow tell rachel shes gay
basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.
but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.
"I hate public transit because it brings gentrification wherever it goes"
Public transit isn't the problem, here. Gentrification is the problem and it's using public transit as a tool to methodically spread, but that doesn't mean we need to stop building it. Part of the solution, honestly, is to build it more, build it faster, and build it for *everyone*.
