@codesections kev has made it quite clear that he is not, in fact, working to make fosstodon welcoming for everyone. Kick him out or shut up.


@codesections that last sentence isn't really how being safe & welcome works.

If an admin of the instance makes you feel unwelcome because he thinks you're a snowflake and have your pronouns in your bio, it doesn't matter who the mod team is because you can't be sure they aren't going to be overridden or replaced with people who think more like the admin.

What confidence can that person (or I) have that the place is on the level?

Put another way, how is Kev's post itself not a CoC violation?

@codesections @lawremipsum Using the same standard for chosen identities like "republican" as for socially imposed ones like "trans" is weird and bad

Makes me think you're one of those people who think that all trans people can opt out of their gender

@codesections @lawremipsum I just had a long subthread with kungtotte explaining why this issue has nothing to do with how insulting the language is, did you read it?

@codesections the most glaring problem is that it isn't consistent with your code of conduct: "Examples of unacceptable behavior by Fosstodon users include: [...]
Trolling or insulting/derogatory comments
Public or private oppressive language or actions"

That's a bold and laudable constraint that doesn't at all suggest it only applies when you direct it at a specific person.

@codesections To narrow it's application as you describe guts the protection it provides. I doubt the original toot cat authors would find it consistent with the intent of the document.
