Extremely emphatic reminder
We do not "debate" the basic rights and dignity owed to a minority group on scholar.social
Not as an "intellectual exercise"; not for "educational purposes"
Find ways to learn about the rights and dignity that are owed to women, people of colour, queer people and disabled people without implicitly devaluing them
If you disagree with this position, close your account now, block this instance, defederate from scholar
This is a hill we're willing to die on
@socrates thank you for posting this
also thank you for posting this under a username that's named after an old dead greek guy (seriously, i just noticed looking at this that i have... expectations... about that now, like a white marble statue pfp or something, it's not a good feeling)
