PSA and reminder:
The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.
Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.
"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"
So is racism.
"You're just virtue signaling!"
I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

282 days and counting. Plenty of ups and downs, some of them from guarding my heart too strongly. But things are still decent, if not as wonderful as they once were. Really want this one to last - I mean, I want them _all_ to last, but this one has already been through a lot. The effort to overcome my poor habits and thrive in this will be well worth it.
Sorry for the delay in updates. Masto's been harder to use for a long while than it once was, for purely personal reasons.
@Sylvhem Hm, not sure for the rest of your followers but I view promo posts from sex workers in the same way as illustrators promoting commissions or crafters promoting their jewelry Etsy store. And I don't mind them at all.

This seems to be especially useful for folks living between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, though it's also super cool for folks who just really like calendars. I happen to be one of the latter. More on that elsewhere.

Making sure my war game is anti-fascist Show more
So I'm making a game about crewing an allied tank in an alt-history WW2 to blow up Nazis. What could be more anti-fascist than that? Lots of stuff, it turns out. The problem is that Nazis aren't the only fascists, and my game does some things that potentially support fascist modes of thought.

Hey, Mastofriends, I'd like some help/feedback on a thing.
I'm building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.
Linked below is my current list. Thoughts?
