fundarising, help a trans woman Rojava fighter, boosts appreciated
> I’m a trans woman who was active in Zapatista activism in Mexico for many years before going to Syria to support the women’s revolution and to join the YPJ.
> The YPJ, or the Women’s Defense Units, is an all-female militia under the umbrella of the Syrian Democratic Forces, which defends the Rojava Revolution, and the Kurdish Women’s Liberation Movement.
> I was injured after 6 months. The injury requires a complex surgery to correct.
(If you want to avoid your state associating you with Rojava, I can be your intermediary for donations. I'm reachable on encrypted chats and can forward your donation with a keyword on the public log so you know it went through.)
sorry we can't play cleanup for what is literally a shitty distro that we've been trying to push out of the spotlight for ages for this exact reason
...also if shit works on other distros and not ubuntu
maybe pay attention to the fact that canonical has been choosing not to engage with the rest of the Linux community for years and that the mass majority of ubuntu specific problems come from the fact they can't keep themselves up to date, even as a company with actual resources, and repeatedly insist on making their own forks of libraries left and right that cause issues outside of ubuntu for no legitimate reason
Urgent uspol: DMCA violations might land you in prison (please boost)
Yes, DMCA violations may land you in prison for up to a year. They would also be classed as a felony, which among other things would make it so you aren't able to vote.

And not just fucking late, literal weeks late. I'm not being blamed for this, but fuck that does not even marginally lower my stress regarding this because now I still have to fucking rush things.
I am so sick of rushing things. I am so fucking sick of things not just being ready on time. I am so sick of feeling like shit because I literally cannot remember the last time something I worked on wasn't getting fucking delayed by something.
My god, I've brought up an issue which intersected with race and gender at least twice this month with different white trans folk and their only response was how it affected gender. Your friends of color want you to engage with your whiteness when they bring it up! It's not a side note, it's literally intertwined with gender and trans issues. Black and brown people do so much hussle for y'all, always hoping you'll get the hint
I fucking HATE Jira. It's so fucking bad. It's so god damn shitty. Jesus fucking christ.
From now on I'm setting a timer for every time I have to fucking use Jira, because I'm so sick of this shit and I want to be able to show my employer "hey I wasted fucking hours on this stupid piece of software, how the fuck is that fucking productive"
