like idk, EVERYONE has some sort of shitty quality somewhere. there's no escaping it, we develop sharp edges over time just by existing–
i think the important thing is to always acknowledge that we can't be perfect. but we can always be better.
racism meta, check, check and...
Already draws from a predominantly white pool of people ✅
High cost and knowledge barriers to entry compared to crappy corporate alternatives ✅
Privacy and safety cited as major concerns for creation ✅
But SOMEHOW these safety considerations don't apply to BIPOC who talk about racism, and in fact they are treated as the threats the nice white/light folks were fleeing from ✅
The one Black house in the neighborhood is regularly mobbed and toilet papered ✅
Membership is technically open to everyone but BIPOC are harassed and mistreated into leaving... y'know, for some mysterious reason ✅
Measures to not be so fucking racist are ignored time after time ✅
Idk this place needs to be burned to the ground maybe ✅
meant to say 'they FEEL more homey and homemade', lol i know they're all based off of mastodon's base code or w/e
am i right in suggesting that mastodon instances kind of have an old internet feel to them?
i feel like they're more homey and homemade and personal, and more likely to be decorated in fun ways than boring blah 2020 internet.
and also finding new existing instances is way more exciting than new whole ass websites tbh
something about sunrise is so much more aesthetic than sunset too tbh
sunsets i hardly notice but sunrises start cool and then end warm mmmmmm
i’m sick of all the negativity... let’s start a positive trend on here for once... tell the fediverse all the reasons #WhyThePodcastStaysOnDuringSex
seriously why would you put your donut shop in the middle of a shopping center, hidden from the road but in plain sight of starbucks
you’re limiting the majority of your traffic to people who go to starbucks and dont want to wait or people who know the area
it just makes me really sad to see a donut shop front window that just stares out into the starbucks drive thru line actually.
my feelings are mixed because i love local businesses as opposed to chains and i love comparing other donut shop food to mine
but it feels like cheating to visit another donut shop so close to home lmaolmaolmao
