as a dev antagonist i specialize in causing computer-touchers to feel shame and disgust, both of me and their own actions
how to apologize
- ask if something you did hurt, or how it hurt
- apologize for the specific thing that hurt
- resolve to do better
- presume you understand
- apologize conditionally
- “that was not my intent”
like if i see someone in software rep NFTs i might reply with a warning that they’re being irresponsible, and i’ll sometimes mention here in passing that all cryptocurrency is a scam, but i tend to conclude it’s not worth discussing in depth… and yet i see discussions of crypto everywhere, with virtually every public speaker i follow being pulled into producing scathing analyses by the sheer gravity of the scam itself. should i be louder about this bullshit?
it's important to understand how incredibly recent most of this is. certainly the phenomenon of gender, and gendered oppression, have existed longer; but the forms it has taken are very mutable. when we say 'gender has a history' it doesn't mean we imagine some stone age matriarchal society, it means that you'd be hard-pressed to find a currently extant manifestation of gender that goes further back than the late 40s
up to the 1920s or so all children wore dresses up to around age 9. even then separate 'boy clothes' and 'girl clothes' didn't really catch on until the post war era. children were gendered 'it' in english at least thru the 19th century. in middle english, 'girl' was an epicene term for any child ('boy' meant 'servant')
