@Are0h (they say the instance is mostly "abandoned" so I recommend keeping an eye out for the person's alts and blocking other associated instances)
@nev I do dig it there is so much animosity towards me because I won't treat their bigotry as something legitimate.
That warms my heart.
"[PV are] of the mindset that bigots can't change."
Nothing like blatantly admitting to being a bigot while simultaneously projecting their own defeatism onto you.
If they were so concerned about this thing you never said, they could just... idk... prove that wrong by changing?
But nope, bigots prefer victim-blaming over actually becoming a better person.
@Are0h @nev I don't think it's unique to here, tbh, and I believe it's strategic. They probably go after the most vocal for a given community in order to shut down dissent and become the loudest voices themselves in order to take control over what's acceptable behavior.
But thanks to decentralization and solidarity, their attempts are laughable, at best, since they're too isolated from the communities they actively hate to be able to have any meaningful effect. XD
