"Police officers were reportedly asked to leave a Tempe Starbucks for making customers feel unsafe, sparking the #DumpStarbucks campaign"
Now the juicy part👇🏻
"The hashtag "#DumpStarbucks" is trending on Twitter, after the Tempe Officers Association tweeted a logo seemingly designed in 2012 by the National Organization for Marriage to protest Starbuck's support of same-sex marriage."
✅ So no M4A
✅ no military cuts
✅ $500/month max for Rx
✅ And Housing stays at its normal level of unaffordability
@JoYo @maloki A techbro is often under the illusion that they're woke because they're liberal, so nothing anyone says that might suggest they're in any way biased seems like it could possibly be true.
For someone coming from that perspective, the best thing is to lurk more. Techbros often "just ask questions" without considering how draining it is for someone already marginalized to explain their experiences to someone who may very well argue against them. Just watch and listen.
@polymerwitch Our thinking machines can guide a probe to Pluto and beyond, but can’t keep a cops’ bodycam switched on at the crucial moment. Weird!
Are you the kind of person who feel a bit iffy when you get called a TechBro? You may not feel that it should apply to you? You're wondering why everyone's so rude to you?
Well, there's a text out there, which can help enlighten you! And if you like being enlighten and have all the information/cards in order to make a decision, allow me to present you with this guide/resource!

Recently, Bromite has teamed up with GrapheneOS (Daniel Micay), which is a very positive collaboration.
thoughts on the FOSS community at large
the sorry state of the FOSS community is a striking example of how anticapitalism by itself is missing the point. i would argue that the early FOSS community was largely anticapitalist, but, lacking a firm, thought-out, intersectional stance against bigotry, white supremacy, imperialism, and other forms of oppression, it has been inevitably coopted by reactionaries and capitalists, and its anticapitalist rhetoric has largely become nothing but a fig leaf.
re: are you on fosstodon dot org?
@fireglow The Fediverse is growing just fine like this.
A site whose admit does not react to abusive users MUST be blocked to protect the safety of other users.
cops -; sarcasm
@dankwraith pigs just love slowing down the entire transit system to make sure that nobody gets to travel without emptying their pockets first. good thing they’re there to protect us from getting around the city on time. what would society even do with all the extra time we’d save if we stopped charging and enforcing fares?
rant about foss nerds and the software industry
It’s a great day to dunk on some chud-ass foss nerds. Let me tell you: I read the GNU manifesto when I was just starting my career. We were supposed to be increasing access to software for everyone! In the intervening 20-plus years, “open source” is used mostly by huge companies to save money, RMS has literally eaten his own feet, and the software industry is full of self important racists who think they’re in a meritocracy. Burn it all down.
SBC meta, fosstodon.org
I suggest we defederate from Fosstodon.org. Admin being racist, anti-trans, generally unsafe for many. See:
@Duende oh my god!! why do people feel the need to describe Trump or WHOEVER the fuck as a 'narcissist!' he's one of the most powerful people in the world and he's always had class status that made him uncontradictable, the reason he's a fucking shitbag is NOT that there is Something Inherently Different About His Brain and it's so! telling! that 'progressives' will reach for psychiatric pathology so fast rather than going "well, isn't this behavior kind of expected of the imperviously powerful?"
ACP domain silence and upcoming block
We silenced fosstodon.org a few hours ago because of things like the screenshots here: https://radical.town/@Blakely/102389297170811389
We intend to suspend the instance because this isn’t a bad user or a group of bad users, it’s the admin.
Because ACP members follow many fosstodon users, we wanted to give you all about 3 days to reach out to your fosstodon pals to exchange alt accounts (or invite them here) and/or encourage them to ask their admin to stop being so fashy.
Saw this thread the other day, and didn’t realize the accessibility and inclusivity of using tabs. Will be strictly using tabs for my future projects.
