Found out about the latest tech scam and I'm losing it
It's this thing called Marty the Robot, it costs 35k and all it does is detect trash on the floor and yell an alarm for a wage worker to come and pick it up
DMCA and copyright more generally is designed by corporations to stifle creativity and censor. the fact that metallica, which helped push these draconian laws, is now having their own live concert muted on twitch shows you the absurdity of it all
im fuckin losing it
@email@example.com Spitballing in the brainstorm sesh: Hey Bobbi, I figure eggy trans girls probably want makeup and thigh highs, but for the life of me, i cant figure out what to offer the enbies. What transition plan are we supposed to offer these folx*.

Solace (and Solace Plus) is an app that gameifies your transition by listing out goals and checkpoints for you to hit. Many trans-related achievements available, including... piercings?
The vibe for this year has been determined: tech grifts on trans people that work only to alienate us. A companion app to the transgender experience? no thank you I will simply talk to other trans people
So much history can be learned just from listening to Chumbawamba.
Like...did you know James Hetfield of Metallica was honored their music was used by the US Military to torture people in Guantanamo bay?
"pronouns are confusing" bro wtf is this
it’s always “free britney” and never “abolish psychiatric conservatorships”
I still think there's value in thinking about the "Years of Lead" as an alternative way of thinking about intensified political violence vs "civil war" or just "terrorism" but it's worth pointing out that we basically had one and most are just averse to talking about it that way. https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1363595642212384777
