"The man who stole over $100,000 in iPhones from Apple by walking them out the front door"
Hey there! I’m Dirk and new to this instance. I noticed some other people are doing #introduction posts so I’ll do the same!
I’m bisexual and cisgender (he/him). I spent the last four years teaching radio and television classes at the small rural high school I attended when I was a kid. I resigned at the end of the school year and now I’m getting ready to go back to school to study graphic design.
I co-host a podcast called “OMG So Random Hehe!” and I love designing posters for concerts and other events in my spare time. I’m excited to be here and to get to know all of you!
LGBT+, YouTube discrimination, lawsuit
"According to the lawsuit, YouTube algorithms flag videos about LGBT+ issues as “shocking,” “inappropriate,” “offensive,” and “sexually explicit,” meaning that they are then demonetised, or made ineligible for paid advertising.
YouTube has also been accused of blocking LGBT+ creators from purchasing advertising on other videos, while allowing hate-filled videos to remain online and even advertise on LGBT+ channels."
"Celso Dulay and Chris Knight of Glitter Bomb TV[...] said that a Google employee told them that their video had been flagged for explicit content because it discussed “the gay thing.”"
"Chase Ross said that his videos are routinely demonetised or placed under a restricted filter because he is transgender."
"Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers told a similar story. They said that after their videos began to be demonetised and restricted, their revenue has fallen from $3,500 to just $500 a month."

Huh! Tumblr's been bought by Automattic, the developers of WordPress:
I suppose I should do an #introduction, shouldn't I! Hi y'all, I'm Violet, I'm a 22-year-old trans lesbian from the US. I read a bunch (I'm a librarian!) and I code and write a little bit too. I'm also trying to do more embroidery because it's cute as heck 😊 I'm excited to hang out around here and meet people!
#FreeRadical users: I just suspended the
freefedifollowers.ga instance for spam. I’ll add it to the usual docs later.

I'm Kim. I'm a trans woman. I'm mostly lesbian but with some flexibility, which is why I use the word queer.
I'm submissive but not really into bondage or pain, my kinks are feet, piss, humiliation and roleplay. I'm polyamorous.
I love science fiction and fantasy. I'm a big Doctor Who fan. I like all types of music but mostly heavy metal and electronic dance music.
I'm pagan, not heavily into magic or ritual though. My eclectic altar has mostly Greek and Hindu deities on it, with one or two Celtic or Egyptian gods too. I love nature and that is where I find the deepest connection with the divine.

Hello! You can call me Corwen. I'm 27, homoromantic asexual (i think, the ace part is something I'm still figuring out) and perpetually sleepy.
I like video games, my friends, and a variety of other things probably!
That's probably a good starting point, looking forward to talking with you!
