block recommendation, CSA mention, weird homomisia, creepy shit
okay so one of the lead developers of pleroma (specifically email@example.com) boosted this post by user detective hyde. hyde is kind of a pedo, as in, interacts with and replies to sexualised pictures of anime children (specifically loli). i strongly recommend a block if you don't want to see his shit.
karen boosted a post that he made (screenshotted below) that made a bunch of weird accusations such as calling me an ""ugh, men" lesbian" and saying that i tried to make my penis a meme (?) which backfired on me (?????). i don't particularly give a shit about this post, but i do care that karen - again, one of the lead developers of pleroma - boosted it, even while knowing full well that i followed her. she'd been saying and doing a lot of stuff i objected to for a while (being against the "fuck cis people" thing, openly admitting to having racist friends, never captioning images or using content warnings, interacting with p.smuglo.li) but this was too much. i expect to be harassed by people like hyde but not by karen, especially since she did this a few days after making posts about how she wished we could "all just get along".
i'm not going to go as far to say this is harassment, but it's not exactly friendly behaviour. she even replied to the image before boosting it, saying that she wanted to boost it but also really didn't, which makes it obvious that she wasn't just having a "playful jab" and knew that i was going to take offense to it.
i know that both karen and hyde are gonna see this post, not just because of the way pleroma handles blocks, but also because they have people who screenshot my posts and send them to them (i don't know if this is true for karen but it definitely is for hyde - see second screenshot. he's not following me, yet he has a screenshot of one of my followers only posts), but i don't really care
evidence for the pedo thing - here he is in a thread with images of loli. i've deliberately broken the link by adding a space before the .org to avoid thumbnail previews. i'd also recommend blocking firstname.lastname@example.org, who posted the loli images in the first place.
