The school Chromebook is the only device some kids have, and the school Wi-Fi is the only internet connection,” - EFF attorney Sophia Cope. School surveillance destroys the only space where kids from lower-income families can communicate privately online.

If you could take a cross-section of the average city block, you would see the ways that the built environment of surveillance in, over, and under our cities makes this an entwined problem that must be combated through entwined solutions.

I had a thought. So I’ve been doing advocacy for child sexual abuse prevention since roughly April 2019, a little over 2 years. During that time period I’ve met a decent number of ““self-identified pedophiles”. And I had this very interesting revelation. The pedophiles that I have met have been some of the most empathetic, kind, caring individuals that I’ve ever met. On other other hand, I’ve also met plenty of Trump supporters, and they have been some of the most hateful, unempathetic brainless people that don’t care about any other human beings. Basically, the revelation I had was: pedophiles are better than trump supporters.

Now, a theory: my theory is the people that have been through the worst shit and has experienced the worst shit are some of the kindest people because that kindness is how they wished they’d been treated by others.

Ok, no sex education for high schoolers, in that case! Got to keep anyone a day under 18 completely ignorant to sex, exposing them to anything sexual is grooming! Now watch STIs, sexual abuse, and unwanted pregnancies skyrocket.

I'm sure if someone mentioned this you'd backtrack and say "Well that's different" but for real, you've got to pay attention to what you're saying. "Don't expose minors to ANYTHING sexual" is a more ridiculous take than you think it is.

oh boy, playing with fire today apparently. Someone included “protect all kids” in a tweet. So I replied with something along the lines of “yes, we should protect all kids. That includes protecting the pedophilic kids.

Question for anyone that has used Matrix/Element more than I have. I want to fuck around and try out the different bridges. But the only ones I see listed are IRC & Slack. But I’m not really interested in those, I would love to try out the bridges for Telegram/Twitter/Instagram/Email/Discord/Signal

Several Sacramento legislators indicate they plan to vote no on SB 4/AB 14, bills to solidify CA's new universal fiber program, due to cable industry opposition. Urge your legislators to vote yes and stand up for Californians who need reliable internet.

NYPD used face surveillance to identify a speaker at a protest for Black lives, then sent dozens of armed officers to arrest him at his home. Police must stop using face surveillance.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
