Did you ever consider "drawing your own window borders" is not actually the same thing as "fuck you I'm going to make my program look like piss because I'm special"

"I mean come on, have you seen GTK+ applications? Ignoring the system's theme is already common place!"
*Looks at all of the GTK+ programs she runs, literally all but one of them follow the system theme*
*Also looks at the work being done to make GTK+ integrate stylistically with Qt*
but yeah sure it's a GTK+ thing. Right.

uspol/responding to militia intimidation (legal +)

I watched this 2017 local documentary about Dory, a 101 year-old trans woman. I cried a lot. Please watch it! It has English subtitles.

Youtube has revolutionized UX by making it so that the moment your video ends if you were scrolling down to see what video is next on the android app, it helps give you more diverse content by completely refreshing the list while you're in the middle of viewing it and putting on different videos.
I'm joking. This is super obnoxious and I hate seeing a video I want to watch that immediately disappears because the last video ended.

Things I hate about English grammar: punctuation within quotations counting as punctuation for the whole sentence. It feels syntactically inconsistent!!!
Correct: She then said "Wow, I'm being quoted!"
Incorrect, but superior: She then said "Wow, I'm being quoted!".

Oh yeah let's not forget how these shitty fucking centrist democrats won't ever fucking dare touch capitalism, and how fucking liberal fan kids love to fawn over how capitalism isn't a crime and how we need to disadvantage a large portion of society in order for society to function.

Schumer, you're a fucking coward, and you're too scared to ever play hard ball with Republicans. Let's be fucking realistic here. You're a fucking coward. Just fucking admit it so the country can move on

The idle threats the democratic party makes make me fucking angry too, they don't intend on following through with any of them and they just promise shit because they don't want to look like they're not doing anything, since that's what they're actually doing - nothing.
I don't fucking expect schumer to do shit after this is over. He's going to pretend trump never happened and we're back on Obama 2 and everything is perfectly fucking fine now

And people EAT IT UP. I don't fucking get it. Why pretend Biden is going to help? Why fucking bend over to the man who repeatedly tells you how he is not going to stand up for progressive ideals. You're wasting your fucking time and you should be out protesting to try to push for a better opposition party. You should not be sitting around trying your damnedest to come up with shitty justifications for why your shitty centrist candidate is somehow not centrist because words means nothing?

They fucking pretend to be progressives for the sole purpose of acting as a roadblock to real progressive goals, while fucking liberals fight tooth and nail to portray them as being something they're not, despite the fact they go out of their way to make it abundantly clear that they don't give a shit what happens to the victims of conservatism, and they don't give a shit what happens to the victims of capitalism, as long as they still have their fucking job in the house or senate.

It's one thing for a brainwashed conservative dude to do shit because I fucking expect it. I hate them so fucking much, but I know it's coming. That's what progressives are supposed to stop.
But no, democrats are so fucking afraid of stepping on the toes of any conservative constituents and so afraid of playing hard ball they take the easy route which is to complain about how they supposedly can't do anything when that's clearly not the fucking truth

I'm always going to be angry at Republicans, but I feel like I'm always going to be angrier at democrats knowing how they whine and moan about not having the votes to stop things when they actually have the ability to just not show up to their jobs, which would make it impossible to confirm the Supreme court pick because they then wouldn't have the minority quorum to approve it.
They could do this, but instead it's just "UwU maybe we'll convince them not to unlike the 99999999 other times"

SNOUTS META SUMMARY 

All you need to know is that snouts didn’t fucking do anything wrong, and a bunch of bad faith clowns intentionally misrepresenting a tiny fucking issue are trying to clout farm like this is Twitter and the idea of a bunch of vulnerable queer people moderating an instance that they can target makes them salivate.

Don’t give them the time of day, continue on with your lives.

That’s it. Meta done. Don’t harass people.
