This is probably how weird and unjust it sounds to men when women demand some pieces of the cake, or even 50% how dare they. Why should I give them my job, my nice comfy position, my speaking slot, my interview. I need the money, too!

Why should we give type design jobs to designers native in these scripts? Because they may be from an underrepresented part of the industry, a less privileged region, or not white. Don’t we want more opportunities for people that are not white Westerners?

Should Western/Latin type designers design for other scripts, too, or not better pass these jobs on to native designers? More controversial than I thought.

Imagine men made all products specifically used by and aimed at women. They educate women in making them but afterwards don’t let them make ’em themselves although they have the better/unique insight into how women use them. Men see that the latter is useful though so they occasionally let women consult on the work the men do. 🤔

My phone suggests to offload the Deutsche Bahn app because I haven’t used it in two months 😭😭😭😭

Ich habe eben einen Putzlappen gebügelt. So sieht’s aus 😭

As you, alt-internet, know, I am clearing out the apartment of an elderly neighbor and that involves talking about all kinds of obscure things with my other neighbor, in person.
Poor Instagram must be totally confused when listening in these days. Dutifully showing me ads for obscure things like rotary clotheslines but secretly it must want to send an “Are you OK?” alert, I am sure.

Endlich wieder Drosten 💚 ugh how I missed him in past days’ Streek

Waking up at 5

@kupfers @letterror und auch die Gründung des geheimen Bundes europäischer Wurststädte geht auf ihn zurück. Lyon, Frankfurt, Wien und Krakau richteten jahrelang den Wettkampf um den großen Wurstpokal aus, aber weil Wien und Krakau immer gewonnen haben, wurde es eingestellt. Frankfurter und Lyoner Würste reden seit dem nicht mehr mit Krakauern und Wienern.

I’m only looking at email between 10:00 and 18:00 from now on. TOO. MUCH. ALREADY
