Recently, I'm getting approached online by people trying to pick a fight about religion and about how terrible I am for not being a fan (to put it mildly). Which surprised me quite a bit, since I honestly don't remember the last time religion was even properly on my mind, let alone having brought up this topic publicly.
I create lots of things, mostly software, and I put them on the Internet for free. As an author I have the right to decide under which conditions do I waive my copyrights. Common practice is to just pick one of the permissive licenses, many of which aim to maximise the user's freedom…
But I don't care.
It’s sad, being a member of a minoritised community and seeing some of its members turn against the others. Like in case of that twitter discussion on whether or not “weird looking” people and drag queens should be allowed to represent us, or even mention publicly that they are queer, for fear of giving us a bad reputation.
I used to be that asshole who answers “no” to this question.
Homophobes get offended when I compare their anti-LGBTQ bigotry to racism.
