I didn't enjoy this as much on second reading. The nostalgia factor may only be good for one reading.

@okcupid You should allow everyone to select their pronouns, to help normalize it further.

Some OkCupid answers that make me pass: > Do you have a problem with racist jokes? No > Which is more offensive: book burning or flag burning? Flag burning > Should burning your country's flag be illegal? Yes

It’s discouraging when OKC shows a higher percentage match on religion than ethics. In those instances I check and a lot of times it’s one of those answers. I guess at least the algorithm is working.

I know you didn’t mention h-event, but one cool (I’m biased :) consumer for h-event converts to iCalendar. https://github.com/gRegorLove/mf2-to-iCalendar. I use it on my site’s calendar page and a few client sites.

read an unfortunate blog post featuring the sentence "I’m philosophically on the left, practically speaking I’m a centrist" and I want to l e a v e

I read that post and as soon as I hit “centrist” I said, “well, there’s your problem right there.”

Being corrected may not feel comfortable and maybe you (general you) aren't used to thinking so closely about what you say, but these discomforts reflect our privilege and pale in comparison to the harm/hurt done to marginalized.

I think the XOXO community has been great about correcting people in a way that gives them room to grow -- as long as we're willing to listen, learn, and grow (vs. brushing it off and repeating the mistakes willfully)

Respectfully, it sounds like you're centering the fun *for you* over the harm/hurt that can be done to the marginalized, even by well-intentioned people.

I witnessed this happen on multiple occasions, during talks, at meetups, and online in Slack. You have to watch so carefully what you say, that the fun kinda gets lost.
