Can’t wait til this catches on and every profile edit page has a reminder that people want me dead
Coward shit from GitHub
@JessTheUnstill @hailey well aware of that, I just have a bad habit of being excessively charitable regarding intentions online & a very good idea how well-meaning but clueless folk try to 'help'.
@hailey im actually thinking so much about this... like why not just not display pronouns in places that its illegal 🙃
@email@example.com Hot take but... since when are pronouns assigned at birth? Like I know sex and gender are, but I don't remember pronouns being written on the birth certificate.
Yes, I understand this is a nitpick but I wanted to say this.
@hailey i mean
what's github supposed to do? given the circumstances, i think it's reasonable for them to have this warning
@hailey trying to have it both ways and cover their asses, like usual 🙄🤡
This is beyond stupid tho. They don’t collect your assigned sex at birth, so how would they even know when to display it or not? Total pandering to the ‘anti-woke’ crowd while trying to act supportive.
This is @hailey's personal Mastodon instance!
@hailey warning people "hey, publicizing that you're trans could get you arrested in some parts of the world" reads as an attempt at harm reduction to me, though I struggle to imagine there's a single trans person who is unaware of that fact.
