I feel I'm obligated to bring your attention to this.
Discourse, genitals, transphobia
No body part is inherently good/evil
Every time discussion shifts from the actual topic at hand (say, where nudity is appropriate) to the body parts involved ("I just don't want to see dicks everywhere"), a ripple effect of that is boiling people down to their body parts which (surprise!) ends up with trans people as collateral damage

unpacking some shit Joe Biden said
Looked at through a historical lens, Biden was one of the northern US counterparts of the Dixiecrat movement. They helped along things like redlining, they fought busing, they enabled white flight and a little later drew the groundwork for the war on drugs and mass incarceration.
fediverse inclusivity PSA, salty, boosts okay
Folks, please make use of the image description feature. Other people on the fediverse use screen readers for all kinds of accessibility reasons, ranging from attention disorder management to blindness. I've been seeing a fair few more descriptionless images being circulated in my home timeline than I have in the past. Pisses me off when I see activism posts without image descriptions.
Being inclusive isn't hard. You just have to, y'know, do it.
Arcane Adept Kayde has challenged you to a battle!
...but they'd rather keep reading their book, honestly.

Thinking about what an accessible game engine would entail.
Imagine a game engine where developers could easily swap out spiders for other enemies if a player had arachnophobia.
Or a game engine that could automatically warn developers if things were hard to see with certain forms of colorblindness.
Or a game engine with braille
input device support.
It occurs to me that some of you young folk have always lived in this world of bountiful memes. New memes every day, big memes, small memes, niche memes, memes that make their way to the heart of the zeitgeist.
It wasn't always like that.
In my day we had only one meme.
We made that meme into an anthem. A flag. An identity.
All our base belonged to it.
