@mrtino I think the main reason for moxie is the current use of gca and the resulting reduction in user-friendliness of not using it. 🤷♂️

@MordecaiPinhas if you ask me it's a combination of trust, sympathy and familiarity. This applies whatever 'kind of' love it is. Everything else is pretty much either a consequence of the above or (of) sexual attraction or cuddliness/oxycotin deficiency.
I'd be interested in a better definition or arguments against it..as I haven't found any yet.
re: sacrilege, social media, conservatives
@noelle YMMD :) this is comedy gold!
@jwildeboer It's amazing how great danger can unify people. I wonder why that doesn't work for the UK though...I suspect standing order 14 has something to do with it.
re: implied heteronormativity, maybe?
@aparrish I'm particularly sensitive to minority-flavoured slurs as a result of having been at their receiving end for quite some time.
The world needs more empathy (people actually feeling the feelings they cause in others).
There were probably enough situations that lead to your sensitivity and I'm sorry you had to experience any of them.
Guardian: When [EU] leaders asked May what she was going to do if her deal was voted down, an official added that the prime minister replied that she was following her ‘Plan A’ of getting it through.
It was then the EU decided that “she didn’t have a plan so they needed to come up with one for her”, the source added.
Not really a surprise on May's end... I wonder what they will come up with and whether or not she will accept that offer.
re: implied heteronormativity, maybe?
@aparrish I'm not sure we can attribute a malicious intent here. There's also the possibility that they didn't have a way to address all the parents and opted for the second best solution.
I get organization-wide mass email dozens of times a day, every one of which is addressed directly at the recipient and assumes interest/relevance but hardly any of those is interesting/relevant to me.
While I perceive them as spam, I don't think all those writers think the majority of people in the respective mailing list fit into the group that their mail is interesting to.
They're probably just lazy or in need of better filtering tools (although experience shows people don't use those even if present).
Regardless, I wish people were better at accepting each other. The intolerance and divisiveness just suck.
@email@example.com she'd be a prime example to disprove the sign but it doesn't talk about her freedoms (although it pretends to) it talks about corporate freedoms. So the photo is sadly missing the really sinister angle....and it shows that the sign works.
A house foreclosure next to it would get the argument across more effectively.
Sorry, sometimes I'm too cynical.
@pea what a total waste of space that person is. Unbelievable.
@pea I'm so sorry you have to deal with this shit.
If that person was a proper human, they'd know that reducing anyone to tears is absolutely unacceptable.
If they were at all qualified for their position, they'd know that happy employees are productive employees and they're the person actually detrimental to productivity rather than you.
Such an asshole.😡
There's a hug if you want one....those are a lot easier to judge consent for in person.
Ein paar Beispiele gefällig?
Verschlüsselung stärken - Tor verbieten
Personalmangel bei Polizei ignorieren - Polizeigesetze verschärfen
Dieselskandal ignorieren - Grenzwerte hochsetzen
Digitalsteuer ablehnen - Verantwortung an Plattformen abschieben -> Uploadfilter
Grundrechte für die Sicherheit opfern - Nazis in Polizei und Militär ignorieren
UND IHR BESCHWERT EUCH, WENN EINE KLIMAAKTIVISTIN NEN PLASTIKLÖFFEL NUTZT?!? #fridaysforfuture
Diese Politiker, die jetzt verzweifelt nach Inkonsistenzen bei #frodayforfuture suchen, dass die Kinder Müll machen oder bei McDoof essen, sollten sich echt in Grund und Boden schämen. Denn sie sind es, die ohne jede Scham eine politische Inkonsistenz nach der anderen generieren.
