harsh technology words 

if you build technology that only works for able-bodied people, you're actively working on turning diversity in to disability

no, your inaction does not excuse you or make you less accountable for your decisions, eat my ass

anti-vax people rant 

ok so this is going on mastodon because i don't want to erupt some kind of family facebook fight

anti-vaxers PISS ME OFF but probably not for the obvious reasons (endangering people's health)

no, the shit that pisses me off is the dishonest and cowardly arguments they cycle through to justify their behavior. FREEDOM. CHOICE. MICROCHIPS. FDA.

just say the actual reason you don't want the vaccine, asshole

keyboard-based workflow 

after like a decade of using vim, i3, linux shell, i think it's fair to say i prefer using the keyboard over the mouse. why is this?

i think it comes down to an aversion to the mouse. it requires fine motor control and with RSI it can cause physical pain

vegan shit 

anyway i removed that person because they either didn't spend five seconds to google something before posting it, or they're lying for an agenda. maybe a mix of both.

either way if i can't trust them with the easy stuff there's no way i'm able to trust them

also the most obvious kind of counter to all this is that not all vegan materials are plastic? like wtf?

but is animal agriculture a given? like i have my plastic leather gimp suit and ball gag and it's going to pollute obviously, but is it really THAT big of a problem compared to tearing down the earth to make farms and feed the farms?

vegan shit 

the only way the post or any of this argument makes sense is if you accept animal agriculture as a given- then vegan clothes plastics and pollution adds on to the pollution

this isn't some weird paris climate agreement shit where you can launder pollution shit. making the planet better by not wearing vegan plastics doesn't undo the harm done by wearing leather, it just exchanges it

vegan shit 

the down low is this: animal products in a capitalistic society come with disrespect and exploitation attached. what you choose to do about this depends on your own philosophy, but you can't just pretend this isn't an issue

vegan shit 

another post i read is that it's probably better to wear leather and pass it down through generations and be super respectful about it

whenever i hear someone talk about being 'super respectful' about something i know it's going to be some trashy shit

vegan shit 

i'm happy for people to argue the merits of pollution and sustainability around vegan lifestyles

but removing the suffering of and consent of animals from the discussion is not ok

vegan shit 

like idk, i'm not an animal, but i think animals would prefer i wear plastic instead of their fur? i think that's the choice they would choose if i asked them 'should i wear your skin or this plastic'

Show thread

vegan shit 

like granted- let's say all that's true (lol), the post goes on to attack vegan ethics for creating a polluted and trash world that's worse for animals and people

Show thread

vegan shit 

i unfollowed some friend on facebook for posting some weird tumblr post about how vegan wool/leather/fur is plastic and it lasts less and turns in to bad shit for the ecosystem

if you don't have an uncountable amount of ARM linux boards laying around, are you REALLY a linux user?

keyboard switches 

i need to replace some switches in my keyboard so i bought a bunch of gateron mx brown switches and all i can think is how trash they feel compared to box browns
