:_witchhat: is a living project to build a better, healthier social network that is centered on the needs and safety of marginalized people by being about setting and respecting healthy boundaries, and encouraging if not requiring conflict to be deescalated first and resolved if at all possible.

:polymerwitch: please always remember to be kind to yourself and to others in your marginalized family. when you encounter people you do not like or get along with, set clear boundaries then resume focus on the positive relationships you have with people close to you.

in general im tired of everyone finding some reason to heap abuse on eugen/m.s fortnightly and in general the fediverse needs to do a lot of work on working through issues without excessive escalation, and this is the north star for pretty much every admin decision i make

everyone's mad at for a variety of reasons, some good, some bad. i don't plan to restrict anything from unless the spam doesn't let up, but i am to believe they are working on it.

we also get a lot of spam regs here, so if you have any friends that want to join w.l don't forget you can send them an invite so they can join right away and don't have to wait for me to plow through the backlog (or worse accidentally bulk deny them 😅 ) :witchyfly:

fediverse stop being mad at eugen for everything all the time challenge (impossible)

"go fuck yourself" – weak, overused, ineffective

"I hope your favorite distro switches to snap" – OUCH

@HelloSpider @Lucifubaal sorry it took so long, your applications got buried under a ton of spam regs 😿

to the latest batch of witches: sorry it took so long to get to you, been a lot of spam regs that took a long time to clean up and fish out the real regs

@anna i have put a lot of work into my World of Warcraft account over many years. I often skipped expansions. I hated Cata and I hated Legion but WoD, Pandas, BfA, had a lot of fun. I was personally insulted by their attack on Lady Windrunner's honor, but the dragons looked cool, I have seen the ads about the new expansion but I also know that theres just no going back to Blizzard and I would never give them my money.

despite myself, i love terrible trash game "overwatch" but i havent played it at all since the whole thing where bobby kotick is a serial rapist, the cosby suite, and the breastmilk banditry and otherwise finding out that activision is especially bad even by video game company standards

how the fuck hard is it to not play a mid as fuck wizard game thats literally worse than a game launched the week previous that has been roundly lambasted for being also extremely mid

@anna 👾 cisses when someone says something they learned in middle school biology class is wrong: :akko_angry2:

@anna 👾 how does anyone manage to think we can ever appease our oppressors enough to make them tolerate us?
👾 I mean everyone hopefully knows we aren't gonna take down JKR with a boycott, that almost never works (not *never* but you have to actually have widespread public support that trannies do not have). but like come on she has been widely known as a transphobic antisemite for years now who has been living under a big enough rock that they think there is a case to be made in her favor?

👾 contrarians really annoy me, like, people who for no apparent reason go out of their way to defend whatever egregiously awful thing everyone is mad at

i have been made aware of the "spoiler to fascist pipeline"

A queer gaming collective (KRITIQAL) is doing an bundle for the cost of a shitty wizard game by bigots, you can get 69 good magic games by LGBTQ+ creators. their summary of the bundle:

  • 69 magical works from LGBTQ+ creators
  • $60, or the price of one AAA wizard game
  • proceeds split evenly between participants
  • no TERFs allowed

and you know. in case anyone wasnt aware re: the genital wart game #HogwartsLegacy

if for some reason the thousands of trans women telling you not buy this isn't enough to convince you, you are definitely a bad person who should feel bad about your life and choices if you still want this game that has virulently outright nazi levels of antisemitism in it

but hey you can be a witch and/or wizard (those are gender neutral terms in these parts) and be anti-fascist, and it does not cost you $70

of course, door's always open. w.l isn't everyone's cup of tea but if you want an instance and admin that is still here after taking heat for years from the most obnoxious and abusive people on the fediverse, we'll leave the light on for ya
