having the knowledge to host is a class issue. it means you had the relative privilege to have access to spare time and education, self or otherwise, to learn the necessary skills. poor people have to work so much they can't leisurely commit 1000 hours mastering a new skillset. but even if you had the skillset, you might not have the class privilege to be able to afford self hosting. so many people completely ignore class and education privilege and it's another form of ableism.
If you want to hide information using stegography you still want to encrypt it before hiding because stegography is just hiding it in noise in a file, while cryptography will make it look statistically random reducing the risk that someone accidentally discovers the contents stored in the noise, to an outside observer this will just look like noise, whereas if you didn't encrypt if someone is paying attention they may spot the extra contents.

Don't talk to the police, if you are a suspect in a crime and you are innocent still don't talk seriously, the police have a tendency to intimidate (and that is actually part of their role) and can cause people to falsely confess just to bring a stressful situation to an end.
My father would disagree (he's said it many times that it is annoying when people do not speak) but he would say that giving he is a police officer, and it is because I've seen police culture from internal perspective that I know that is how it works (socialist works augment my understanding of how it plays into the wider picture).
The internal culture of police is incredibly xenophobic so if you deviate from what they consider normal they're likely to put more pressure on you which is why if you are part of any minority demographic you definitely need to get repressentation. (in Australia those demographics that get a lot of attention from the Police are American Samoans, but there are others that follow not that far behind)
trans stuff, uncharitable words about men Show more
one of the most profound things i've realized since i transitioned: men are boring. the only way i can interact with them is through talking about shared interests like rpgs, nothing else. a whole new world opened up when i stopped being afraid to interact with non-men as a non-man.
The first and merely only argument of alt-right when critising queer or poc people, when they try to appear non hatefull is : "Why do you have to bring the fact tat you are gay/black ? Nobody care".
I'm not interested in arguing about why people do stand out and the subject of visibility in general but, the very fact that they are -offended- that people bring the subject of their sexual orientation/gender/race makes the 2nd part of their assumption false. If nobody care, why are you so angry?
@email@example.com drew this, I saw this on another post, and i realized, this was the first time I've seen furry art without impossibly large dicks and impossibly large breasts and it's really sweet and why can't we get more PG furry art with tummy rubs and back scritches and sfw grooming?
I just kinda realized that the common Comic Bro™ argument of "Superman is boring because he's too strong and can beat anyone" stems from people not realizing that there's more to being a hero than beating people up and that's kinda telling about their general mindset

hey it me, a gay. a lesbiab, if you will. i'm here to gay shit the fuck up.
Biscuit (10yo) announced this arvo in front of the entire fam that he's figured out that he's bisexual. He likes girls and boys, NBD.
Miss12 was like, OMG SO COOL.
I was like, okay dude. NBD. (but inside I was like wow, holy shit, he's only 10)
Hubby was like O.O (but outwardly chilled & tactfully respectful, I was well impressed)
I think it's hard for us old people sometimes to get that yes, a 10yo *can* know what they're into. I knew I was interested in boys at 10, why wouldn't he know?
