Treating alt-right radicalization as a thing that "could happen to anyone" or that "gets done to people" (subtext: with no agency on their part) is a short road to treating ex-racists like survivors instead of perpetrators. Don't do that shit.

white people are the worst-placed out of anyone to perceive our own current racism so like others have already said more articulately, calling oneself an ex-racist is sus as fuck to begin with - how would you even know that, if it seemed fine to you before?
this part always gets me!! like stop pretending as if you have been uniquely prepared by this experience to fight against propaganda. "ex-nazi" is just a way of telling the world that you're extra-susceptible

I'd like to remind you all that while Firefox may not be great, Chrome is a lot worse and telling people not to use Firefox is just going to push most of them back to Chrome. Demanding that people go "all the way" and rejecting incremental steps is pretty high on the list of reasons why free/libre/open/non-megacorp software isn't more popular.

The Black Lives Matter Protest Experience | Topless Topics Interviews Kenny Riot


An old video from mid-2020 that I unfortunately lost all the info for when Vimeo banned my account (along with Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, and countless others: https://www.toplesstopics.org/banned/ )

However all of it is still more relevant than ever, so it's worth reuploading I think.

I would link you to Kenny's Twitter account, but he was permanently suspended for mildly insulting a Trumper. And yet somehow it's always Trumpers bleating that they're being oppressed (:

There have been many reports lately that Facebook is blocking links to https://joinmastodon.org

If you are still on Facebook, please keep spreading the word about Mastodon and the Fediverse.

If https://joinmastodon.org doesn't work, try posting a link to a reliable instance people can join. There are so many instances, Facebook cannot block all of them from being mentioned.

That Facebook are even doing this implies the Fediverse is on their radar, which is quite an achievement in itself!

@FediTips I'm having placed an ad worth 15€ on facebook for my "professional" (musician) mastodon account (@torstentorsten@social.tchncs.de).

Since 5 days there are 552 reached persons, 43 interactions, and 7 link-clicks. (According to facebook statistics). There have been 0 people or fans following my mastodon account from that advertisement. (according to my own statistics).

Seems the problem is not facebook but it's users =(

"censorship hurts everyone, even if it gives you warm fuzzies that your enemies are being censored. it also keeps you in the dark about how wide their reach is, what they're saying, or what they're planning."
I don’t think you understand what censorship is. Censorship is me preventing you from speaking. It’s not me not listening to you. Just as I should not be able to stop you from speaking, you don’t have the right to compel me to listen to your bullshit. Fart all you want. But not in my house.

I'm not sure janky little decentralized services run by actual people have a chance when people have these ridiculous reliability expectations from having being weaned on megacorp services.

It's part of the reason why I sometimes get depressed working on NetBSD, people expect every single possible configuration to work when that's simply not possible with the available developer pool and lack of corporate sponsorship.

Personally I like things to be a little broken. It's a sign of love, and humanity. Like home baked cookies that have turned into one big cookie.

I don't think these people were especially brave, they just were able to find each other. I will say, too, that their body types (all people depicted are quite thin) mean that they're unlikely to have faced as much body-related uncertainty and self-loathing as some others may have

"The Fediverse" is more than just Mastodon. The Fediverse is many platforms that talk to each other using a common technical standard called ActivityPub.

If you're using one Fediverse platform, you can also interact with people on other Fediverse platforms, because ActivityPub connects them together.

Shares, follows, likes, comments... these things federate across the Fediverse from one platform to another. This happens so seamlessly that you may not even realise it is happening!

Try it yourself below:

@amogurumi is on PixelFed, a photo platform

@craftykat is on PeerTube, a video platform

@Jonathan is on WordPress (with WordPress ActivityPub plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/activitypub), a blogging platform

If you access these from Mastodon, they look just like Mastodon accounts, and you interact with them in the same way too.

However, if you click on their profile avatar images you will see them on their home platforms.

Violence Yay, Tits Nay | Topless Topics Interviews Kenny Riot Part 3


A discussion about western culture, but especially the United States of America with is puritanical roots, and its love affair with guns, violence and gore, while fearing and hating all nudity, nonsexual or otherwise--as well as inexplicably including "female-looking nipples" as "nudity" but not "male-looking nipples".

Family-Friendly Nudism for All Ages | Topless Topics Interviews Kenny Riot Part 10


Finally, a discussion about how nudism/naturism--that is, the community and ideology that you can be naked in public without it being profane or sexual--is open to all types of people, including all ages, and can be a fun, relaxing, freeing experience from six to sixty. Only by making sure that nonsexual nudity supporters are more outspoken than all the perverts and pornbots can we convince the rest of the world that it's okay.

Topless Topics PSA: Wear a Fucking Mask

This entry was edited (8 hours ago)

It is questionable weather the mask on your video works or not. However anyone who has had the shot does not need to wear a mask. Also It is now been proven by about 11 different studies that if you have have had covid your immunities are as good or better than if you had the shot. I had covid, then four months later I had the shot. Now I have been sick every day since a week after the second shot. 5 months now.

@tbn33421 Not even gonna engage with someone as willfully ignorant as you. Doesn't matter what facts I post, because you'll just ignore them, as antivaxmaskers always do. All I can do is hope you don't vectorize a new strain of covid that really does ignore the vaccine so that we're all back in peril--if not for this, I wouldn't care one way or another if you choose to keep yourself vulnerable to a deadly disease that has killed over 700,000 Americans and left millions more with debilitating long covid, as I have been.
Have More Americans Died from COVID-19 (700,000 and counting) Than from All Foreign Conflicts? Yes.

There were more than 1,000,000 Americans dead as a result of the Civil War. We are our own worst enemy when divided.

Our latest TROM-Cast about Nudity is up https://link.trom.tf/fE2wF

Unfortunately we got a lot of issues. First that of sound. I forgot that I messed around with OBS these past days and I removed the input sound module for my computer from OBS. So I had to fix it live....then the connection to @Cleo of Topless Topics was not that great via Jitsi. I suspect is because the Jitsi instance we have used was hosted closer to us than to her, so her video quality was not that great + she interrupted a bunch of times. We did lots of tromcasts with people from all around the world but the connection was never as bad.

Lastly our live interrupted 2 times....and I have to investigate why. I have no clue at the moment. Maybe Peertube is too buggy when it comes to lives. I will test the live before our next TROMcast. Luckily I have recorded everything locally so all is saved.

Give it a bit of time to convert so you can stream it properTHank you to @Cleo of Topless Topics for participating! Very interesting discussion!

Topless Topics Interviews the Just Naked Podcast about Nudism/Naturism vs Topfree Equality


I finally reuploaded this interview with the founder of the Just Naked podcast, about how he admits himself that he started out as a stereotypical guy who fetishes any and all nudity, and his process towards how he learned to start respecting women and even organizing nonsexual nude events in NYC such as nude yoga, for the normalization of nudity...(and some of how he's dealt with the inevitable pornbots who tried to show up to such events, expecting a sex orgy).
I took a while to upload this video because it was the first (of only a small handful) of fully naked videos I ever recorded, and the inundation of gross sexual comments and retweets on accounts that post nothing but porn is demoralizing to say the least. But it was quite a good discussion, and I don't want it to be lost forever just because idiot pornbots will inevitably use it as fap material -_-

It's Not Anti-Nudist to Discuss Sex | Topless Topics Interviews Kenny Riot Part 9


A discussion about the unrealistic taboo of even acknowledging that sex exists while among nudists, for fear of slipping into the false, demonized societal perception of nudists as perverts constantly having massive orgies outside. Also, being a sexual person (even a sex worker) in one part of your life does not mean you're always sexual, all the time, any time you're naked outside of sexual situations.

"but stopping to ask for consent ruins the mood!"

Yo, if you can't figure out how to be sexy while asking for consent, you aren't mature enough for a sexual relationship much less a kinky one

And if you think dominance isn't compatible with seeking consent, you're not ready to top a Tupperware bowl

2 people reshared this

Honestly it's perfectly okay to not be sexy while asking for consent. That's Bizarre Social Rules stuff, not anything related to maturity.

But consent is /way/ more important than the mood.
the maturity component is understanding that "sexy" isn't a predefined set of Bizarre Social Rules at all, but respect and care for your partner. Showing you genuinely care for a partner's well-being IS sexy, and thinking that a sincere and clear ask about consent will somehow make a situation Not Sexy is a sign of immaturity

I was apparently wrong recently regarding copyright on Hacker News

In a discussion of police playing copyrighted music to trigger automated takedowns of civillian video, someone pointed out that a recent US Supreme Court decision invalidated copyrightholders' right to sue US states for copyright infringement.

https://www.copyright.gov/policy/state-sovereign-immunity/

One would presume this might extend to any entity operating as state government.

Say, for the sake of argument, a state university library system.

Which would mean that such a system might take upon itself to, for whatever reason, host Sci-Hub, LibGen, or ZLibrary, in a legally-immune status.

That would be an interesting development.

(There's no specific need for it to be a library system. It could be the forestry department, prisons, or an individual legislator or elected official.)

Boosts appreciated.

So, I'm getting really interested in precisely what Allen v. Cooper does and does not do.

TL;DR: it's the March 23, 2020 US Supreme Court case asserting sovereign immunity against infringement of copyright or patent claims against state government.

"Get out of jail" (or civil court) cards are rare and interesting. Immunity and impunity often causes all kinds of problems. But the Law is an ass W a tool, and ... this is an awfully interesting tool.

I'm finding relatively little discussion. My little suggestion above remains the application I'd be interested in.

* If the user is doing anything in OpenKeychain's UI, OpenPGP is still doing it wrong.
* OpenKeychain shouldn't be an app, it should be a library.
* Changing OpenKeychain into a library is more work than we are motivated to do in our free time."
