Having pronouns in your bio is important to normalise the practise, not just gor trans people but everybody. If only trans people do it, then it becomes a marker of who is trans, if you all do it then it's just a standard thing. I know it can be annoying to be asked over and over yo do it, but it is important

"I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express."

Trying to move a bank account. Big ol' banner to click on to move it within their bank. Tiny little text to move it elsewhere. Clicked that. Next screen had my "options" which were another big ol' "move it within this bank" and _another_ tiny piece of text saying "call us to move it elsewhere"
I get it, but like dag, yo
@xj9 I'm literally saying that is a problem but you're so focused on proselytizing that you're missing every point.
We are done for sure, enjoy the rest of your day.
@xj9 I really, really don't know where you got the security and SMS thing from. My complaint is that Apple took over where my messages were sent on their backend, routing them to the wrong location without notifying me of that change. I said I already use Signal.
@xj9 there was no switch. It was enabled automatically when I activated Apple pay.
Abyway thanks for the tip, let me go explain to my mom why she needs to leave the apple ecosystem and get an android phone then get matrix messaging set up so she can safely contact me to ask me if I am free to come visit for dinner this weekend.
