I'm new here. I'm anti tech cis dudes that refuse to reflect and undo toxic behavior, and like to call those comrades (if they want so) that do.

my gender: human
my pronoun: it/they/them/human
my interest for being here:
promoting and sharing thoughts about: secure communication, that puts the user and their usecases into the center of considerations.
I'm here for learning, and tryn to take what I learned to contribute back to freesoftware projects such as .

I don't have the capacity to control how their self-given values represent reality, but given the fact that the value that I can easily check against reality is not fulfilled how to trust them about the others?

I don't know much about offering merch. (looking for a solution for @tails and seems to be among the better options. )



One of my first impression of redbubble is them reproducing Heteronormativity and similar.

Imagine playing a game. You either follow the rulebook, break the game or make your own game.

Choosing to follow the rulebook, will make one behave within a framework as defined by the developers. This is abstract, I know.

The alt-right is using as a tool to politicize the undecided and to radicalize the others.

Here's a talk about how they do that:

"It is so it doesn't matter who developes it."

That is a wide spread narrative among the (white cis male) tech community.

I strongly disagree with that, because it misses how culture and social relations are impacted by its environment and wise versa.

Imagine a communication and finance platform developed by the . They will define the environment and are knowledgeable about gamification.



I want an approach that takes , , (not the terfs), anti-classism, blm...and so forth into account.

Because of being understaffed, we need others to do the main work.
There are some companies that offer the entire process around merchandise as a service. I'm not aware of any that does so with the values presented above.

Do you have any thoughts on that?

is chronically underfunded/understaffed. Some are looking for new methods that could help @tails to acquire new resources.

Offering merchandise is among these options. My chosen task that I want to help with is to make it more ethical, and you can help too!

I just came across several positive remarks towards .

Isn't this messenger run by members of the altright? Am I confusing something?

While #briar remained silence with this fediverse account during the last months due to missing resources, the development of briar and its ecosystem remains active.

Some bits of what is new since the last post:

- first beta relases of briar GTK (to use briar via desktop)

- second beta release of briar GTK

- .deb packages for Debian Bullseye

I couldn't find the resources to be active here during the last months. (I hope that this is going to change)
Unfortunalty that also includes the 2 project accounts that I manage:

@briar and @tails_live

For Tails there's a fediverse bot that mirrors the twitter account. You'll find it here: .

The EFF and hate speech 

I don't think that opposition to corporate policing of speech online means that one must support hate speech or think it's OK. Thinking something's bad doesn't mean supporting all efforts that claim to be targeted at ending that thing. For example, if you think child molestation is bad, that doesn't mean you have to support the Arizona law that criminalizes accidentally touching your child's genitals while changing their diaper.

If you are a #website / app #developer, consider using tools & APIs that do not collect user & system information.

If you must use a particular system that integrates with reCAPTCHA or similar, please provide them feedback that you would like alternatives to Google services.

originally I wanted to see if I could use to set up a Q&A community for Tails support.

Technically I can, morally not.

I'm absolutely done with . I report to the foundation that the lead behind lemmy legitimizes genocides and supports authoritarian regimes.
