The most wide spread malware is actually called Microsoft Windows

Loveยน how modern web server stuff is basically the same thing as years ago like nginx or whatever, but it's just now on top of 17 layers of various strange virtualisation things that may break at any time, even when the actual machine's only purpose is still to just run the web server

But like, just try to remember that we haven't "made it" and it hasn't been *that* long since things were much worse

Thoughts about "generational" queer stuff 

So I don't really have a point here

Idk how this is supposed to go

I never knew any queer elders growing up

I was in the fucking closet because I was afraid of being murdered/getting AIDS/going to hell and even if I hadn't been, whoever might have been my mentor probably died of AIDS before we met

And I'm not setting myself up as some wise queer guru or whatever (jeez no)

Thoughts about "generational" queer stuff 

We haven't even got a single generation past this stuff, and having grown up under the shadow of AIDS and the constant threat of straight violence, I know that we're not so far from it that we couldn't slide back there and fast

Hell, I have to remind younger gays about the time that the cops solicited gay men for sex in a park in Toronto in 2016 and arrested them when they consented

Thoughts about "generational" queer stuff 

When I was in high school, murdering queer people was low-key legal

It was called the "gay panic defence," check it on Wikipedia, it still hasn't been banned in many states

All a straight had to do was tell them that the victim was gay and coming on to them and they panicked, and suddenly murder's legal

So I can tell you exactly how straights will act if they know that the authorities will see "gay" as a legit provocation to violence

It's not great

When I was in high school, if you got HIV, your life expectancy from that point on was measured in weeks

This was celebrated by the straights; I can tell you exactly how they will act if they get to see queers die, and it's not great

This hate was internalized by the gays, whoโ€”to this dayโ€”still carry the attitude that there *should* be some punishment/stigma/downside to gay sex (you probably have this inside you, it would be a miracle if you didn't tbh)

Y'ever think about how, in a lot of cases, this is the first time that any of us have been in a situation where there even *is* an older generation of queer people around?

The mentors we should have had were taken from us

Gotta hand it to them, Apple got praise for making people's lives worse by removing all the ports and now they get praise again for putting a paltry selection of them back.

If an Eee PC is a really small PC, is an Ee PC a normal sized one, and an Eeee PC a really really tiny one?
