This is similar to making a mod that replaced all non-white characters and NPCs with whites.
How homophobes should be treated.
As a Pokémon, I find this highly offensive.
The ol’ find the bin number with the lowest price per weight and “buy only that one produce” trick!
I hope those billionaire looters disturb some Arctic demon and get cursed with horrible, torturous death.

Didn’t even take an hour lol.
Who should I trust more about reporting the treatment of Muslims? Western countries who have been antagonising Islam since the dawn of Abrahamic religions, who support Israel’s actual genocide of Muslims and are literally banning Islamic practices like Burkas in their own territories, or Islamic countries themselves? Seriously, you will say literally anything to discredit literally anyone who goes against your views on China. Do you know this particular Islamic group? Of course not. Yet you’re already accusing them of, one, accepting Chinese money, two, not caring about human rights, three, being racist, just be cause they said something good about China. Meanwhile, the West gets a free pass on all of these despite having a very clear track record of the latter two and clearly stand to benefit from smearing China as much as possible?
Finally, when every Muslim majority country agrees on the fact that China isn’t abusing Muslims, even though they have plenty of disagreements on way less significant things, maybe you should at least consider that they might be right? They all supposedly hate each other, but not one of them goes “fuck you all, I’m not going to be in this China coverup with you!” Speaking of, why don’t any of them support Israel by the same logic as you used to justify turn supporting China, who, again, are legitimately engaging in a genocide of Muslims?

“Item unexpectedly removed from bagging area! Please wait for an attendant to assist you!”
My biggest problem is how damn patronising they are. They intentionally slow you down explaining everything in excruciating detail, and you’re not allowed to skip it or continue with the actual checking out until it’s done talking.
“Welcome to X Store self checkout! Please hold the barcode of your first item to the scanner below!”
“Please put your item in the bagging area! Then, scan your next item by holding the barcode to the scanner below!”
“Please select payment method by selecting debit, credit, cash, or gift card using the touch screen!”
“If you have a points card, please scan it by holding the barcode up to the scanner below! If you do not have a points card, please press skip on the touch screen! If you would like to register for a points card, please go to customer service!”
“Please follow instructions on the pinpad! Or, if you’d like to choose another payment method, please press ‘choose another payment method’ on the touch screen, and select another payment method!”
All in that grating, artificially cheerful monotone.
Look, I know it’s to help the elderly and people who genuinely don’t know how to use it, but fucking just give me a “I know what I’m doing so skip all the bullshit” button!
Also, will praise Israel and condemn China for their treatment of Muslims in immediate, back to back statements.
Watch the (non-Muslim, never set foot in an Islamic country or China) libs blubber something about “well they must care about that China money more than Islam!!!”
It’s already happening.
Very good points actually. Consider me convinced of your view.
The issues with (lack of) access to fertility treatment and access to abortion both stem from the same misogynistic ideologies.
Both are anti-woman, and aim to undermine their right to reproductive autonomy, plain and simple. (And the Catholic “only men can be clergy” Church is staunchly against both, surprise surprise)
I’m surprised that Bezos hasn’t caught wind of this and tried to buy a fertility clinic and launch Amazon Prime Insemination
For Apple specifically, it’s because it would cannibalize the sales of the iPad. They’ve pretty much got the tablet market cornered, the iPad is considered the only “good” tablet nowadays and by far the best selling, and they’re NOT giving that up. They’ll gladly let you sync your iPad to your Macbook to get a similar effect as having a direct touchscreen input though! How nice of them!
No one. The trolls, spammers, etc get banned instance wide, and I don’t block anyone for being “liberal” or “right wing” or “anticommunist” or whatever because I’m confident in my own ideologies enough to not be afraid to hear differing opinions.
What does this even mean?
Lemmy is only a few years old, and only started federation for less than half that time. It’s far to early to be talking about instance traffic and retention and stuff like that.
