re: internet social systems
i'm just gonna say it: i think like counts are bad. i don't think our systems treat knowledge, such as knowledge about interactions both individually and in aggregate, with respect and humility, and as a result even foss alternatives to corper social media mimic their manipulative nature. they have sucked so much air from the room that an enduring reticence, an unwitting fealty to that corper mode, haunts efforts to structure and build not only alternatives but also the communities that populate them.
under capitalism this fight will always be uphill as we collectively struggle to afford the very time and energy to resist, to create and fortify humane systems and comprehensive tooling. but that struggle is vital. with diligence and compassion, we will overcome ✊
internet hate machines
it's weird to think about internet hate machines as a consequence of how we have structured social interactions on the web, linking them closely with manipulative metrics and dopamine-trickling mechanisms...
it especially fucks me up how these hate machines swallow kids into their ranks.
but also how intensifying geopolitical conflicts have rewarded state actors for goading and abetting these hate machines, heightening their impact and especially their harm.
What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us
For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him
The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people
And it's mostly women who get pushed out
So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable

When they were my provider, Kaiser basically abandoned me and thousands of other patients struggling with serious mental health issues. I’m not surprised they treat their employees like shit. I hope the folks on strike get everything they’re striking for and more. Fuck commercial ‘healthcare’ and death to capitalism 🔥
DS9 “Visionary” but now TNG “The Outcast”
The lines that made it about sexual orientation got cut because Rick Berman is a shitty bigot, as did Frakes’ ask that his love interest be played by a guy because again, Rick Berman is a shitty bigot.
The end result however is very much Planet TERF where a woman who had a gender got punished for it
If you’ve never seen it, that TNG is basically the Enterprise visits the Planet of the TERFs where gender has been abolished and anyone who has one gets arrested, has it forcibly removed, and has to make a public apology.
Amy from The A-Team was a secret woman who fell in love with Riker (because of course) and got punished for it.
They meant it as being about compulsory heterosexuality, but it’s literally Planet of the TERFs
Don't say patriarchy when you mean transmisogyny
