Aparently, this question is getting asked more and more often nowadays, so let me put in my two cents worth. Are polyamorists part of LGBTQ+? And I don't mean those who, like myself, are both pansexual and poly, or both trans and poly, because of course we are. I mean: does polyamory itself make you part of the community?
I used to think that the biggest advantage of the Internet compared to the old-fashioned media is that the communication doesn't just go one way. It's not just a few people broadcasting to everyone, but instead it's everyone having an equal voice.
But having spent years on the Internet has taught me something more: most of those “equal voices” are stupid and spiteful. And that's I don't have to listen to all of them.
Four years ago I backed Font Awesome 5 on Kickstarter, and in return I received a license to use it and to access the pro features. The license might be perpetual, but the pro features, sadly, are not 😢
If you don't subscribe to a Pro plan, you won't be able to install Font Awesome Pro using npm or yarn.
That's the one feature I need! And on August 1st it will be gone! My dev setup, my deployment setup, of multiple projects, everything depends on fetching Font Awesome from the npm registry.
Luckily, there's a simple way around it 😉
So apparently I'm supposed to respect the belief that there are witches who have hexed the moon, because otherwise it would justify other people's homophobia.
What a pile of absolute bullshit.
I'm not kidding, everyone should have pronouns in their bio. Yes, even if you're cis. Yes, even if you're famous and everyone knows your gender already.
Nie żartuję, każdy powinien mieć zaimki w bio. Tak, nawet jeśli jesteś cis. Tak, nawet jeśli jesteś sławnx i każdy już zna twoją płeć.
I strive to optimise this blog's performance as well as I can. But chasing a goal of a lightweight website while keeping it pretty prevented me from realising the obvious truth that the most performant assets are… no assets.
So, inspired by Sijmen J. Mulder's directory of text-only websites, I decided to create a bare version of my blog.
Here's how it went:
Nie mówiłxbyś osobie czarnoskórej, by głosowała na rasistę, bo jak nie, to…
Nie mówiłxbyś ofierze gwałtu, by głosowała na gwałciciela, bo jak nie, to…
Więc nie mów ofiarom homofobii, że muszą zagłosować na Trzaskowskiego, bo jak nie to PiS im zrobi z Polski strefę wolną od LGBT.
I keep running away from Polish homophobia. Geographically, I've left five years ago. But online? I'm trying not to read the news, not to engage with homophobes on Twitter, I'm unfollowing Polish accounts…
But I can't keep it up. The extent of queerphobic hatred, especially recently, is terrifying. I can't just idly watch my queer siblings suffer.
“A” in LGBTQIA+ stands for asexual, aromantic & agender – not for “ally”.
Being an ally is not a gender / sexual / romantic minority.
Being an ally is just basic human decency.
Yet another one of my projects, Naked Adventure, grew too outdated to support it. I had to rewrite it from scratch.
I took the opportunity to redesign it as well. (screenshots before & after at the bottom)
