so now what?
i’m looking into moving this newsletter elsewhere. i’m gonna miss the beautiful interface (it’s what drew me here in the first place), but i’ll manage. i can’t stand by a venture that supports anti-trans and anti-feminist agendas—or an Uber-style model or business, frankly—so that’s that on that. pretty editor and cute fonts be damned, ya know?
i’m researching alternatives and will find a new home and move us all over safely—if you’re subscribed, you don’t have to do anything further. you’ll just hear from me via a different service at some point, and aside from maybe the fonts or colour scheme, you won’t really notice the difference.
it’s really saddening to see this kind of behaviour from a platform that purportedly aimed to amplify marginalised voices, at least in their early days. i held out for a while, hoping they would handle the unfolding situation with more grace, but as per the posts i’ve linked above, that didn’t happen.
