    Her being flawed, imperfect, whatever excuse, doesn't make her any less of a hypocrite.

    (And gay.)

    (And someone who kneeled for the national anthem.)

    Can we stop whitewashing DJT into just being one form of evil at a time? Like, Jesus Christ. No, he'd still hate Rapinoe gender-swapped.

    Why are we even glorifying athletes, anyway?

    Rapinoe gets sponsored by two companies that are famous for being run off of sweatshop labour, and she was paid to be in a commercial by a company that openly killed union workers.

    Her self-proclaimed political beliefs are incompatible with the entities she's taking money from and in-turn generating revenue for, so she's either a hypocrite or a liar.

    Now that a good portion of people have had accounts here for over a year, it seems fitting to ask: are there any interactions that have particularly stuck out to you? Anything that's caught your eye? Maybe changed your life, at the polar end of possible positive results?

  5. Comment on How the liberal utopia of Portland became the center of a rightwing war in the US in ~news

    Ah yes, the liberal utopia of Portland, notorious for its intense and dangerous drug scene and skinheads just a few short decades ago, and the place responsible for making some of my LGBT friends so intensely worried they won't even walk home without having someone on-call in the present one.

    "How could someone be even remotely surprised by this," a discerning reader might wonder to his or herself. "Especially given that the writer seems to be based in Portland, for that matter!"

    Oh, would you look at that? A quick perusing of his Guardian & twitter profiles reveals so wonderfully much! White. Checkmark. Guy. Checkmark. Straight to the point where the only article he's ever written about LGBT people was one about how they're voting for Donald J. Trump. Checkmark. Intensely Milquetoast moderate. Checkmark. Expat. Checkmark! That's an entire bingo, folks!

    I tried it a year or so ago, and though the client itself was nice, the people on it were kind of...bad? Not posting anything illegal, mostly, but it seemed to have a bit of the Voat problem going on in the few groups that weren't entirely dead.

    Solution that would solve the privacy problem & also possibly improve quality of conversation:

    Button you have to hit per-thread that allows you to comment two minutes after pressing.

    Not personally in favour of it, but it doesn't seem like something impossible to get around while still granting user privacy.

    Went offline a bit after I started; disappointing. No biggie though, at least they're trying to get it up.

    I'm glad it's back online (though the media server is still down-ish), but I really wish that Watkins would destroy the worst boards.

    The lack of images is making it impossible to make a solid archive of the board I visit on occasion, and I really hope I get the chance in the off-chance that they decide to cut their losses.

  13. Comment on Should the Voting Age Be Lowered to 16? in ~misc

    When I was 16 I was living on my own; I'm a bit sceptical of anyone who couldn't reasonably vote at even, say, 14, being able to vote at 18.

    Just wondering - have you ever been to Israel? To Tel Aviv? It is one of the primary cities for LGBT tourism in Europe because of the openness, the beaches, the parties, the LGBT bars.

    I have actually, though not to Tel Aviv - Jerusalem, for if I'm remembering correctly around four months?

    This guy is a troglodyte and provocateur with a barely functioning frontal cortex. Posting what he says as if it's representative is akin to posting the preaching of any lunatic imam, conservative MP, or an orange president as if they're representative.

    He is representative of the state, just like D.J.T. is for America.

    A representative of the state isn't the same as a representative of the people.

    Anyway, the page @SUD0 linked should get you up and running with Github Pages, if you wanna go that route.
