@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgHi FSHM! It was nice to stumble upon your group of the Fediverse the other day. I wanted to get in contact with the admin of connect.fshm.in to raise an issue with the software, what is the best way to get in contact?12:31:52
@demonshreder:matrix.orgKamal (demonshreder)I help maintain the instance, what seems to be the issue?13:12:33
@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgThanks kamal. It's an issue with the actual software. Soapbox is made by a person called Alex Gleeson who is anti-trans, which seems to be against the core values of your group as I understand them?13:20:50
@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgHere is his own post on his opinions about trans people: https://blog.alexgleason.me/trans/13:26:29
@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgAnyway, that's all. I thought you would like to be made aware. If anyone would like more information, or to talk with me more about it, I am happy to make myself available.13:29:47

Just to be clear, we do not endorse or support hate speech, discrimination of any kind. While we did come to know the history about creators of soapbox, we chose to use it only so in hope that the familiar and cleaner UI would help more progressive, inclusive people adapt to the fediverse faster. In a way that should help tone down the fascist or hateful instances.

@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgWell it's your choice. I'm afraid a lot of instances will defederate from you if they see you're using it.06:29:17
@rjt:matrix.org@rjt:matrix.orgIt's a shame that there aren't really any good interfaces for Fediverse software.06:29:44

Well it's your choice. I'm afraid a lot of instances will defederate from you if they see you're using it.
To give some context to what I am saying, I am myself a transgender person and I have been associated with the free software community in Tamil Nadu for the last few years. I personally don't understand what has the personal views of the software developer about a particular topic got to do with our right to use a software as long as it is in a free software license. If we go back and scrutinize the personal opinions of all the contributors to Linux Kernel, I am sure you will find several contributors who have sexist, racist, transphobic, and other bigoted views. Are you going to be able to clean up the kernal to remove their code, or is it even necessary? Even if you decide to stay away from Lixux for that, tell me which software is ethical? Going even further, people like Alan Turing who contributed to the foundation of the theory of computing were also involved in the word war and something or other they said would be politically incorrect. I don't personally agree with Alex Gleason but what has his views on a particular subject go to do with the ethics of using software available in a free software license like Soapbox. This idea of political correctness and the fantasy of a perfect world in which every contributor has the correct political ideology is just nonsense. If we find code in Soapbox that is promoting transphbobia, we should certainly clean that up. Beyond that, I don't care if the creators are transphobic. Isn't freedom zero about being able to run the code for any purpose - so if someone wants to run the same code tor a purpose we disagree with, that does not make the software unethical. In my opinion those who want to defederate from us not for our content of our posts or for the actual code used but for the political views of the writer of that code are at best silly and childish and at worst suffering from delusions of grandeur. Tell me again one major software which has no contribution from someone whose political views are not controversial or unacceptable to someone or the other?
