the best way i know to explain nonbinary gender to cis people is the binary food comparison:
every food is either a sandwich or a dumpling
just because something *can* be sorted into a binary, doesn't mean that's the best or most accurate way to describe it
Despite being free software, Mastodon as a project takes a hardline stance against nazis
The covenant has been added approx. one month ago so that for the first time in Mastodon's history, our project could make "no nazis" a part of our branding.
Our stance on Gab, nazis, fascists and harassers in general
As most of you already know, Gab is coming to Fedi soon.
We consider the only sensible move is to block them preventively anywhere we can.
As such, we are strongly supporting all fedi admins, members and software developers who are working to do so.
We want it to be loud and clear that we won’t tolerate nazis, fascists or “free speech” advocates in our spaces.
We also won’t accept harassment against our moderators. Ginny is one of them, and we’ve had enough of your constant threats, discourse, subtoots and attacks.
Also: this is a statement, not an invitation to debate any of the points mentioned above.
Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
ive been riding public transit in this city for the better part of a decade now. union station downtown used to be a ghost town. now it is packed 24/7. why? because the city has massively developed its transit infrastructure.
this is a perfect illustration of the fact that when it comes to infrastructure, demand follows supply. if something is useful, people will use it more. a lack of people using public transit isnt an argument for not investing in it - its an argument for investing more

This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It was created by @Tiwy57 originally for a small group of furry friends, but thought it might as well be open to all fluffies and scalies !
