TIL of the term SWERF, which is like TERF but exclusionary against sex workers. (I knew of the behavior, but not the term.)

My ignorance is probably showing by saying that, but full ack, I am ignorant about a lot of things (but trying).

(Speaking of terms, ignorance is unawareness... we often call people ignorant who are intentionally ignoring information, but that's incorrect. While everyone is "guilty" of both due to human imperfection, everyone is *especially* ignorant as in unaware until they become otherwise, by definition. But aiming to become more aware or not is a choice you can make...)

@cwebber I've met a bunch of people who don't know the terms. Personally I don't see how TERFs or SWERFs can be called radical feminists though.

Hey dude - I did some wiki-work for you a while ago... How goes the things ? (esp. Mediagoblin?)

@UserCoffee Hi! It goes ok, been busy on the standards side of things w/ ActivityPub. MediaGoblin should be adopting it soon.
