    L Nah, I grew up in America; I don't really think it's normal. The former's hers, and it's not accurate much at all; the latter's just what it says on the tin, really.

    I'm going to guess you're trans then?

    L

    Is this normal where you are or is there a story behind this?

    Nah, I grew up in America; I don't really think it's normal.

    I want to hear both if [you] feel like typing them out!

    When did you realize you weren't cis/straight/etc?

    Two.

    Are you out or still in the closet?

    Been out for a while now. Helped that I was living on my own by fifteen; there was no reason to be. It was fantastic.

    How's the social situation where you live? (Are you accepted?)

    No one cares; it's pretty great.

    In a relationship? If so, how did you meet?

    For three or four years now, one of the two; rounds up to five. Depending on which of us you ask, paramilitary in Africa or an international writing association; her story's more fun, mine's more accurate.

    Anything on your mind? (Doesn't have to be related to your identity/orientation.)

    I've been pondering rereading Worm over the past few days, or maybe checking out its sequel. It's been a few months.

    ...if someone is a rapist, they should have their 'side' completely fucked over. The ideal is jail, the minimum is never being able to make minimum wage again off of selling things.

    It's neither reactive nor foolish (hell, one of the best developers of today's written an entire essay on why it's a poor idea for Go). I disagree with Drew on quite a bit, but he makes a sound point there.

    I'm not against reusable code at all (my favourite language is Forth, no sort of claim can be made about me to that end)—I'm against generics in Go, which are a mistake.

    What privacy has the average Joe user gained by switching to Firefox? None. They’re still using Google Search and (most likely) other Google products. They’re being subjected to misleading ads on their new tab page. From their perspective, installing Firefox was a pointless hassle.

    But in its 10th anniversary release a couple of weeks ago, Chrome started exhibiting a new behavior that alarmed users who purposely stay logged out. If you're logged into a Google service like Gmail, an icon in the upper-right corner of Chrome windows now shows that you're logged into Google's browser as well, regardless of your previous preference.

    Now, this doesn't seem too harmful on its own, does it? Waiiiit a second. Chrome with a Google account takes more of your data than without! Congratz, Google now has your entire browsing history!

    And that's not even the scummiest thing Google's done with Chrome.

    Wow, 115 trackers and/or ads on that page! Not a new record, but still jarring.

    The United States has an odd standard for "Oh, we think these people are going to integrate back into society just fine."

    It's unlikely, say, Ted Kaczynski (a person mentioned in the article), will ever commit another crime if released.

    Yet this person very clearly claimed that they thought they were going to.

    In this case scenario, it seems far more beneficial both to the inmates and society at large to release Kaczynski while keeping the other one. I don't see why they don't; it costs millions to keep them in, anyway.

    The solution is probably just running a bot to give archive.org archives & outline.com grabs.
