Hello! :lbluedragnowo: I go by Starseeker here, but you can call me Star or Apollo. I'm 18, use he/they pronouns, and am a Willamette Valley-area furry with a passion for space, engineering, 3d modelling, building & grand-strategy games, and :gay_communism: communism :gay_communism: (which I *will* sometimes yell about). Attached is a reference sheet for Apollo Starr, my fursona (🎨 @ArtByZhivago on Twitter).

a thing i see people doing sometimes is stereotyping bigots as ugly, unintelligent, etc, and there are two reasons i think we should avoid doing that

1. it splash damages onto people who also fall into those categories. saying ‘haha, person X is racist, they probably have a tiny dick’ only works if you’re implying that having a tiny dick is bad, and that’s body-shaming even if you’re being Woke about it
2. it sets up the contrapositive: if bigoted people are ugly and unintelligent, then smart or attractive people can’t be bigoted. and that’s obviously false and a dangerous thing to believe.

one of the most important points about tagging something is to use consistent, plain text tags. it's not just so people know what the post contains, it's so they can also filter out that topic, too.

Pro tip: if you're on a Mastodon instance running a relatively recent version (2.5.0 is the earliest I've been able to check):

* Go to <your instance>/filters (here, for example, it's elekk.xyz/filters
* Add New Filter
* Add the keyword "womenarestupid", click all four filter contexts, check "drop instead of hide", and uncheck "whole word".

This will remove these racist, misogynist, and now homophobic spam posts from your timelines and won't even leave a tombstone behind.

Hey y'all using the : cannabis_leaf: emoji as your CW instead of the word cannabis defeats the point of a CW
1. That's more difficult to filter out through mutelists since not every instance uses the same :shortcode:
2. You're exposing people to an image of the thing you're CWing for. That's like using a picture of a beer can as your CW for alcohol. Your CW needs a CW now. I know there's a common misconception that nobody could have trauma around cannabis but that's just false. Many do.
