This is quite interesting and I can relate to a lot of it, especially feeling uncomfortable talking on Mastodon about politics/the world (which is the main thing I care about), and also the many problems with so-called benevolent dictators in open source. (I'm a Drupaller, so I've been there, done that.)

Enjoy these legit terrifying points of information from the air traffic controller union, handed to me *at the airport*
“Physical abuse is normally preceded by verbal violence. When the language of the elites violates the limits imposed by decency, it causes more and more physical violence. Unfortunately this is not a theory but the reality, as the growing cases of racially and religiously based violence demonstrate"

Such a raucous crowd at the #UTLA rally today. Lots of energy. Great music. Lots of great signs. Some funny, some angry. There is no doubt that this energy is going to carry on to the picket lines tomorrow. #RedforEd #Red4ED
Today’s #UTLA rally protesting the California Charters School Association was enormous. People were PACKED in. At one point I had to make my way through the crowd. As I was trying to squeeze through a teacher piped up “Still not as crowded as my classroom!”
This is so fantastic. This what we can do with seriously progressive leaders (not coincidentally including many Black women) elected to office and running our justice system. #doitlikedurham

"Rep. Rashida Tlaib cursing got 5 times more coverage on cable news than Rep. Steve King embracing white supremacy." And Congressional Dems were all made to respond to media questions about it whereas only a handful of GOP Reps even remarked about King.

Have you been wondering what to think about claims that #WomensMarch organizers are #antisemitic? I and many other Jews reject these attempts to divide women at a time when we need to support each other.

More accurately (and inclusively), I should say it's bad for *everyone* including cis men.
“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health.”
Yep! #ToxicMasculinity is bad for men as well as women.
