it applies more generally of course: "i can't think of another way than X to do Y" is not a reason to ignore the harms associated with X and force it on others.

i guess that's a lot more obvious if X isn't that status quo…

The publication, tweet or retweet of this picture is punishable by 30 days of prison or a fine of 3000 rubles in Russia.

Shame if people on the Internet were to copy it everywhere.

Eigentlich ist es zu lustig um es hinter dem CW und Link zu verstecken. Daher mal gemirrored. Finde ich gut wenn man die Leute da abholt wo sie eben sind.

here is another stupid talking point for "intellectual property": how else are they gonna make money?

HOW IS THAT MY PROBLEM TO SOLVE? the fact that you can't think of another business model doesn't mean you are allowed to deprive people of their freedom to communicate, create and trade.

your snark and incredulity about commission and donation models do not invalidate our rights, and your lack of imagination beyond them is not our problem.

there was some old video on youtube, something about how mathematical beauty can be found in nature or something, and it had a picture of a flower in it.

below someone commented "i hate that flower, it's ugly".

i thought about that comment way to much.

support a queer neurodivergent artist (1/n), boosts welcome 

Hi. I am a queer #actuallyADHD musician with recurring depressive episodes and migraine and I need some help - I need to make at least 3900€ this year to keep my health insurance (it is a weird bureaucratic construct) and I believe I'm not even at half of that. (Too anxious atm to check.)

I make experimental sound with SuperCollider. I also do German copy editing and copywriting as my day job - drop me a dm if you need those services!
