When people use the term snowflake unironically, just remember they're quoting Fight Club, a satire written by a gay man about how male fragility causes men to destroy themselves, resent society and become radicalized. and that Tyler Durden isnt the hero but a personification of the main character's deep insecurities, and that his snowflake speech is a dig at how fascists use dehumanizing language to breed loyalty from insecure people.

To all GNU project members past and present. I want to hear from you. Please email me.

really need help!! so close 

potentially controversial, rms 

the struggle 

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

what if: we stopped pretending like remembering other people's names is normal and not remembering them is somehow a fault and instead actually accepted that most people have trouble with this expectation and we started to act accordingly?

the moral of the story i guess is keep doing what youre doing, but consider how you phrase it to others.

Act like youre ahead of the game and people will assume you are.

Wow, didn’t see this coming. It appears has been cancelled for doing... literally nothing wrong?

i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead
