Today the US Army tweeted a Memorial Day-themed question, and it's backfired on them horrifically.
There are thousands of replies from people detailing how joining the military completely ruined the lives of them and their loved ones.
Okay this Huawei thing is really bringing up a few issues around a lot of standards bodies being based in the US
The SD Association is based in California which means that Huawei can't say their products support SD cards
And the Wi-Fi Alliance is based in Texas which means Huawei won't be to certify that their products work with wi-fi
And the Bluetooth SIG is based in Washington, which means they can't use Bluetooth
This is a problem
ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.
Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

Working with a kid who normally offers some 'compliment' that is actually just a large dose of dysphoria

Can't believe just thinking about oestrogen ages me backwards

Ngl it's probably something to do with sleep deprivation and the fact that I'm stressed as all fuck for literally no reason at all
How am I stressed
I literally have no commitments other than the odd day at work here and there
I can't settle on anything, I can't relax and everything is just exerting so much pressure on me
I genuinely don't understand
HRT, genital mention, a creepy tbh??? Show more

Last time we called: Friends wouldn't address me directly because they didn't want to upset me, and I'm too passive to tell them
This time we call: Friends regularly calling me by name and gendering correctly after one of my other friends was nice enough to tell them for me without having told me she did it
I'm that one girl that hates herself enough to play Yu-Gi-Oh
