It has come to my attention that Mastodon, and/or OSocial, and/or the Fediverse, are no longer what they once were. They're being flooded by Normals. Or People who Don't Speak my Language. または私のアルファベットを使用しない人。

It's becoming like ... birdland.

Or worse: Facebook.

So, here's a thought for you: Facebook was once literally Harvard.

And whatever you think of FB or Harvard, it most certainly isn't any more. Which is a thought you might want to keep in mind. Because change.


This also means that, say, conservative protestant Christian views ... are a distinct minority. As are white-supremacists, the KKK, Westboro Baptist Church, Libertarians, Palastinians, Israelis, Arabs, English, Irish, Waloons, Basques, ...

But if you want to find any /specific/ group with an oppressive / insurgent agenda against some other group: yeah, they're a minority too.

The good news: they're not the minority.

But consider: being a minority doesn't make you right. Or good.


Errata: that should read "The good news: they're not the /majority/."
