An addendum to the pride heart thread:

The pride heart emote we had for a "gay man" design was also removed due to its designer (not publicly naming because their blog header indicates they are a minor) also being a bigot, proudly proclaiming himself an ace exclusionist on his Tumblr blog.

We are not including the pink & orange flag designs that are gaining popularity (sadlesbeandisaster's 7-stripe flag and taqwomen's 5-stripe flag) as they are mashups of McCray's lipstick design with Butch Positivity's (@butchspace@tumblr.com) butch lesbian flag. As they are still clearly derivative of McCray's work they still carry the baggage of the bigotry that people are trying to avoid by abandoning her design in the first place.

We have now also changed the lesbian pride heart from the all-pink design derived from Natalie McCray's lipstick lesbian flag. We now have two lesbian pride hearts, from Lydia's Sappho-inspired flag and Maya Kern's revision. These flags, the rationale for their creation, and the reasons to stop using McCray's lipstick lesbian design and derivatives can be found in Lydia's Medium post "A Lesbian Flag For Everyone": medium.com/@lydiandragon/a-les

When mass-importing the Mutant Standard emote set earlier this month, a mistake was made that unfortunately required a purge of custom emotes. In the process of restoring the emotes the shortcodes for the pride heart set were changed to a more accessible format (demonstrated in a CWed reply to this thread so as to not be a nuisance for screenreaders).

I don't know how we're going to save people's lives from fascism and capitalism if we can't even bring ourselves to be impolite to literal nazis.

Poor freedom of speech. Its meaning has taken such a drubbing in the last few years.

I mean, originally, it was just "the government can't tell you what you can and can't say".

Then someone decided it meant "what you say should never have any consequences".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can deny you a soapbox".

Then someone decided that it meant "nobody can refuse to listen to you."

Now apparently it means "every program that could possibly access my soapbox MUST do so."

LB: Gab has been blocked from Jubilife on their .com, .ai, and dissenter domain names. Hopefully that should cover keeping them away when they migrate to fedi next month.

CTA ATTENTION ALL FEDIVERSE ADMINS: 

Just saw a thing crediting "disabled femmes" and that may be accurate in this case but I see a lot of people, esp cis people, trying to use it as a placeholder for "not cis dudes."

There are cis women who aren't femme. There are trans women who aren't femme. There are nonbinary and genderqueer folks who aren't femme.

It's cool if you just mean femmes but let's not let this become some shorthand 😬

game thing i always liked the idea of but have never really seen done: several online games of different genres that act upon the same ingame world, so the things players do in one game can influence the experience of the other one in some meaningful way

From the "Great Moments in Customer Service" Department:

In 1972, the Procrastinators Club of America sent a letter to the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, complaining that the Liberty Bell was cracked.

After an interval, the foundry responded:

“We would be happy to provide a replacement bell. Kindly return the damaged bell to us in its original packaging.”
