Everyone talks about printers as being problem children, but it's 2019 and if you plug in a monitor at the wrong time you best be reaching for your quarterstaff cuz here there be goblins

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

Really cranked up the bad faith and false equivalence arguments up to 11 over the past month eh?

Quick tip: set up an auto-correct on your phone to correct "youtube" to "youtube, an anti-queer platform,"

Someone is going to need to get me some kind of slow-release nutrition tablet because between Sword & Shield and potentially Animal Crossing later this year its just gonna be the end for ya boi

Alright nintendo, fuck me up with this pokemon direct

The title/alt text being particularly great:

"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."

also their automated phone service made me type my password in on my phones keypad as numbers which was bizarre and obnoxious because all my financial passwords are at least 50 characters

Something something dark patterns

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"

That is so fucking disgusting and scary.

Just merge it already and publish usage stats to prove wrong the people who are like "if u merg this ppl are gonna stop usin it!!! OMG FOSS"

Watching some of the early Pokémon episodes. This writing is amazing.

*Misty fighting team rocket, summons goldeen*

*Goldeen flops around*

*Misty recalls goldeen immediately*

Misty: ha! Everyone knows water Pokémon can't fight on land! I'm just getting started!

Boy howdy all these nazis and nazi sympathizers sure throw a tantrum when you make it slightly harder for them to be nazis and sympathize with nazis.

And boy howdy is "this is FOSS so you can't stop people from using it" not the right argument.
