Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

Weekend CHOP/CHAZ shooting, cops are liars, anger 

Just watched a press conference wherein police chief Best said that first responders were prevented from reaching the victim

and implied that his life might have been saved if the SPD still had tear gas

when in fact he had been evacuated several minutes earlier by volunteer medics in a private vehicle, when they realized official transport would be too slow. They performed basic life support in the back of a moving fucking pickup truck.

I'm fuming.

For every feature Dwarf Fortress adds, it tacks on another real-world week or so you will need to learn how to so much as navigate to the proper menu to ask your dwarves to think about starting to perform a function some time within the next in-game year, weather and health permitting, which they assuredly will not. Personally, I think that's beautiful.

Anyone else suspect that the tory 'ban on gay-cure' will actually just end up being a vehicle to attack trans affirmative healthcare practice and the provision of trans awareness packs for schools?

TIL the kid of the president of Argentina is nonbinary and does drag and cosplay they ROCK jvkdfjsdkfjkfjksdjf

the idea that trans people would no longer want to go on hrt or have grs should the state / capitalism / patriarchy / 'civilisation' be abolished is just cisnormativity with extra steps
