Windows 11 Start menu ads are now rolling out to everyone (www.theverge.com)

Microsoft is starting to enable ads inside the Start menu on Windows 11 for all users. After testing these briefly with Windows Insiders earlier this month, Microsoft has started to distribute update KB5036980 to Windows 11 users this week, which includes “recommendations” for apps from the Microsoft Store in the Start menu....

If you like arch based, may I suggest you try Garuda?

It’s a gaming distro, which I don’t know if you care about, but it’s very stable, should work with NVidia and has many quality of life features.

If you’re curly, that means having straws in place of hair

I kind of appreciate the “I don’t need to understand or like you to support” attitude, but repulsion is a strong reaction.

Have you ever reflected upon the why?

Especially if you don’t like that reaction in yourself in the first place, as you say, maybe it would be worth working on it?

You really are talking out of your ass. Have you ever actually looked into how trans care works? Because mental healthcare is very much a part of it.

Maybe we live in fantasy world, but you definitely live in propaganda world.

I’ve never said you were a bad person for it.

You seem busy defending yourself from yourself, I’ll leave you to it.

I’m sorry I didn’t notice it wasn’t you, I must have been tired. Glad you got I wasn’t trying to judge, I’m neurodivergent and sometimes my communication is a bit off.

Since you’re aware of it and actually try not to let it sway you towards hate, I suppose it’s not that big of a deal, though I’m not trans so I could easily miss something here. I’m sorry about the dislikes too, though I understand why people have no patience in this regard, it gets tiresome to always fight and having to justify existing. Most possibly stopped reading at repulsed.

I would be majorly annoyed in your place, which is part of the reason I asked, but I’m quite obsessive in figuring out my internal working.

Mind if I ask some more? I’m also obsessed with understanding how people in general work, but I don’t mean to bother and I apologize if this comes off as pushy.

If I understand correctly, you feel it unnatural as a concept. Have you ever actually met trans people? Often you can’t even tell, but I suppose I sort of understand it can be confusing when you can. I would like to understand how it gets from confusing to repulsive though. Maybe something about the general climate more than your specific environment? It got quite violent recently, maybe you’re sensitive to it? I get you don’t know yourself, and again if this bothers you I apologize and I’ll stop.

I’m not sure why I’m bothering, since you attacked me out of nowhere and presumed a lot. I’m curious, I suppose.

Have I reflected upon the why of what? I reflected upon a lot, both about myself and others. I’m never repulsed by people, I sometimes get weirded out but I’m aware it’s on me and try to adjust. I’m repulsed by behaviours, when they’re actively hateful or violent, but I try my best to stay kind. I’m human, so sometimes I fail at that. I’m severely annoyed by anything illogical, as many neurodivergent people are, and again I’m aware it’s on me and try to manage. I’m not above anything human, no one is.

I’m aware emotional reactions are not entirely controllable, and that’s fine as long as you’re aware and don’t let them control you, which the person I actually was talking to seems to be doing fine.

Is that what you wanted to know? What about what I said triggered you so much you actually invented what I meant? Repulsion is indeed a strong reaction, it just is, there’s no inherent judgement about who feels it in recognising that.

I think you can notice that I do actually slightly obsess about knowing myself too lol. How else I am to move forward if not by learning what makes me tick, eh? ^^

Preach, friend.

I think I can start to see a picture here.

Your direct environment may not have been hateful, but from your description the entire cultural setting, from language to customs, implanted some bias toward what is right and acceptable, or natural. It’s a strong influence, and it frames the entire reality unless one goes out of their way to challenge it, as you did. Kudos for that.

I agree that rationally nothing is confusing, but if you grow up with a substructure that implies things should be a specific way, your emotions will follow that framework.

I see that in my country as well, and in myself still sometimes, as much as I try to counter it.

I agree that meeting and getting to know a trans person would probably help in that, especially since consciously you already know how things work. It may be difficult for the trans person though, even if you don’t intend it to be. I’m sure you already know.

Thank you for your answer, and good luck in your slight obsession :)

Trumpism Is Emptying Churches: The former president’s embrace of White Christian militantism coincides with a precipitous decline in religious affiliation in the US (www.bloomberg.com)

Donald Trump, a 77-year-old Bible salesman from Palm Beach, Florida, has emerged as the nation’s most prominent Christian leader. Trump is running for president as a divinely chosen champion of White Christians, promising to sanctify their grievances, destroy their perceived enemies, bolster their social status, and grant them...

I agree for the most part, and I left the Catholic Church I grew up in for that and many other reasons.

However, isn’t Christ’s message supposed to be “you shall love your neighbour as yourself”? When it becomes “hurt your neighbour as much as you can” does it make sense to still call it Christianity?

Since it’s been that way basically from the beginning though, maybe well meaning Christian people should just step away and start over.

I had the same issue, you could try Lemmy Redirect (the github repo is named after the Mastodon proxy, but the Lemmy one is there as well), works for me.

I always try to be nice, but the motivation comes in handy when the person in front of you seems to be trying their darnest to be infuriating

That’s like saying medical research is a scam and citing Andrew Wakefield as a prominent exemple

I’m sorry, are you saying that millions of people, including children, all deserve to suffer because their establishment sucks?

mzesumzira,
@mzesumzira@leminal.space avatar

We are, to a point. US election system is particularly bad in representation, what with gerrymandering and voters disenfranchising, but even if it wasn’t it’s callous to say people deserve to suffer because they don’t understand what they’re voting for.

You’re speaking from a position of privilege.

While the solution seems flimsy at best, reading the article makes things a bit more complicated. As far as I can tell, what doctors are striking against is a raise in the admission numbers for medical schools, as they think it will worsen working conditions.

Major hospitals are struggling to provide services after thousands of junior medics handed in their resignations and stopped working last week to protest against government plans to sharply increase medical school admissions in the face of a rapidly ageing society.

Seoul says it has one of the lowest doctor-to-population ratios among developed countries and the government is pushing hard to admit 2,000 more students to medical schools annually from next year.

I agree, and your guess is as good as mine.

Is there a way beside Sync to tag people? It’s the feature I miss most in any other client, and the main reason I keep using that instead of an open source alternative.

mzesumzira,
@mzesumzira@leminal.space avatar

Ah thank you, I’ll look into it

mzesumzira,
@mzesumzira@leminal.space avatar

I think I’ll keep both and see which I enjoy best. Thank you for your explanation, it was appreciated.

Your comment got me to discover the existence of initialisms and their difference from acronyms, thank you

I like URLCheck better, the graphics isn’t that nice but it works like a charm and you can set it to get rid of amp, redirect, anything you can script for basically

Since it wasn’t a direct answer maybe you missed this comment
