So many people trying to talk about this issue start from the unstated assumption that all piracy is a substitute for spending money, rather than something you primarily do when you don't *have* money. It's a loathsome classist thing, and it took me years to unpack.
@grayishknight it's not even about money. it's about information distribution. piracy is simply the most convenient option.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
