Yet another insightful question about my engagement with mastodon here.
If I'm going to be honest, my perspective hasn't much changed about Mastodon except insofar as I've learned more disturbing things about the history of users of color and other marginalized groups on the platform. I've also learned some pretty not great implications for the existing affordances of the fediverse, many of which I've outlined in other places.
@IAmErik @shengokai I would say “better define the problem” is exactly the sort of thing Dr. Flowers is doing here. I think the best place to start is to continue to follow and listen. It is really hard to get outside ourselves due to having different experiences and we’re unlikely to be able to help without steeping ourselves in what isn’t working. There aren’t likely to be any quick fixes.
