This week is #TransAwarenessWeek. A good time to inform yourself about the many issues people that are trans face every day. And it would be even better if you stand up for trans rights all year. ✊
disclaimers and stuff
please don't hate me, it's a joke :p
New #Fortnite season looks sick, they even got Etho from the YouTube channel EthosLab to join! Pretty epic if you ask me
Flashback to when I started hosting my own Matrix-instance and in a room I was in someone was being nasty, so naturally I reported them not realizing the reports didn't go to the room admins nor to the admins of their instance, but to the admin of my instance... who was me.
I stumbled upon my own reports a few months later.
Every time I say something in support of queer or trans rights, it seems like I get some variant of "why do you care so much?"
I used to have a host of responses. Now I have just one: why the fuck don't you?! What kind of person are you to see people being harmed and just… not care?
I'm so done with people's expectation that you have to have some kind of self-serving reason to care about people being hurt. You know what my "self-serving interest" is? I'd feel horrible to ignore others' suffering. If that isn't enough for you, then I'm sorry, but we can't be friends — I draw the line at willful sociopathy
Omfg so in Germany we have this thing called "Jugendwort des Jahres" which translates to youth slang of the year. National television just announced "cringe" is this years winner and defined it by saying "it's what you feel when I say this" followed by a bunch of youth slang mashed into one sentence... I fucking can't, it's so good! This is the opposite of cringe

So... I've started studying business Informatics at a German University of Applied Sciences, and I've figured out they have an old #usenet server, so I connected to it and decided to say hello to figure out if there are any people still on it...
It took 2 days at this uni for someone to do the joke everyone does about my last name... and it's a professor who did it lmaoo

I have a #challenge for you all!
Think of your favourite public queer person, go to #wikidata (https://www.wikidata.org/), Look them up, add the P91-tag (sexual Orientation) to their object if it's not there yet. Bonus Points for linking a source!
Other fun tags: P6553 (preferred Pronoun) and P21 (gender)
Let's take representation into our own hands. 🏳️🌈
