spicy take re: universities Show more
Higher education and the pursuit of academics are good but the structure of universities is inherently bourgeois and I don't get why people put so much stock in the university and the student body to be catalysts for any revolution
Also universities should be curators and facilitators of knowledge, not gatekeepers
Fediverse feature request - empathy Show more
There's an emotion on the #fediverse I want to express similarly to how we can with the star on #Mastodon. When someone shares a vulnerable and difficult moment or thought I want to say "I'm sorry" in the empathetic way. Spanish is better at this with "lo siento". Literally, "I feel it."
Some of my friends have started using 🖤, symbolizing a sort of gothic heart, like "yes, the world is fucked up sometimes and I'm here for you."
joke: nazi weeaboos
woke: communist fujoshi
discussion of ableism and abled perception of disability Show more
the harmful idea that people who manage to stand up when they use a wheelchair are "faking" is awful and leads to harassment of disabled people
and the worst part is abled people think they're doing a service when they do this shit too!
like when anyone with an invisible disability uses their parking spots, abled people think they're gonna save disabled people from "fakers"
yr just harming us
sunbeam city cooperative Show more
By the way, Sunbeam City is making its transition to being collectively owned and ran by a cooperative. We've just finished our first drafts of the governance policy and CoC and are always looking new people to help contribute/give input.
Okay, finally found a place I can stay and got a WiFi connection so I'll be around more now. Will get back to work shortly. Sorry for the ghosting.
Sorry I've been so quiet guys, I had to move out of home really quickly and where I'm currently staying doesn't have internet access. Should be sorted by Friday.
i have zero sympathy for the petite bourgeoisie
soon my tummy is gonna be flat enough for me to wear crop tops
lol, amp. i noticed that a page would suddenly appear after 8 seconds of waiting if i disabled js, which seemed pretty weird.
turns out that there's a css3 anim to hide the page for 8 full seconds (that is skipped when the js loads ofc).
this is *required* by the amp standard. your page fails validation if you don't do this.
sure makes these goog results look kinda suspicious, huh
