What the world would look like if we taught girls to rage
Mona Eltahawy was recently on ABC with a panel they actually had a very radical, fruitful discussion and an improvement on what's shown regularly it got taken off the air because they said not all violence is the same and some fragile men got scared
Went to a gay bar to watch tonight's episode of #dragraceuk and it was an amazing atmosphere!

you know, we've still never really addressed the issue with fedi of jumping from instance to instance to harass people.
it's a flaw with the design of the system, it's so damn easy to just spin up an account on a new instance the second you're banned, and the people who are doing shit like spamming slurs or w/e literally don't care about being banned from an instance. suspension and the likes works on say me, because I use this place to socialise and there's consequences to being suspended or w/e, but if you're just going to do a 'hit and run' harassment then why would you care if you just got banned from rad town? or .social? you're here to make a mess and run away.
when the 'American wife' spammer was around, people said to just make all instances registration only, but that's not a solution. first of all, you have to get everybody to agree to that, second of all for small instances where the admin has a day job or you know goes to sleep there's nobody to approve accounts meaning those instances are way less likely to get new people applying to them when most of us want the fediverse to spread out from places like .social a little, and really you can't tell who is a bad actor if they want to pretend to be nice for 5 minutes to get in the door and THEN cause havoc, email and IP blacklists would be so god damn easy to get around and so can't be the solution here.
however, if we want this place to be a real safe space then we need to work something out here, because right now we've had PoC and Jewish people directly be harassed in this hit and run way in the past few days. and sure, everybody is boosting visibility onto that user name and pfp which this harasser is using, but like he can just change that up and then do it all over again. we're failing to protect vulnerable people
