Failure to provide your child an extremely low risk and proven to be safe over many decades preventative medicine for a horrible deadly disease that affects not only your own child but everyone around them, and barring any allergies or other conditions that legitimately exempt your child from receiving it, should be considered a textbook case of child abuse under the law and an instant “you’re not fit to be a parent” ruling with foster services getting involved. I’d even say this is not just child abuse but negligent homicide/attempted homicide of both your child and anyone else they come in contact with.
There is no room for tolerance of antivaxxers here. It takes just one antivaxxer to potentially kill hundreds or thousands of people, or in the worst case set humanity’s medical advancement back decades. You take the proven safe vaccine, period.
That’s not even green! If you shut down nuclear and go back to fossil fuels, that’s worse!
Like, there’s some pretty spicy debates in environmental science on whether nuclear is better or worse than renewables (there are many arguments that it’s better, for example, solar panels and batteries require a ton of harmful reagents to manufacture, way more than the volume of nuclear waste being produced) and whether we should be building new reactors or investing in all renewables, or whether existing ones should be shut down once renewables have replaced everything else, but everyone agrees that it’s way better than fossil fuels and between nuclear and gas, nuclear is better.
It’s more new users I’m worried about. Someone on a communist community goes “hey anyone knows what Lemmygrad is?” without specifying the domain, people could well assume it’s lemmygrad.com, go there, and report back “just checked it out, don’t bother with it, it’s a MAGA site”.
This could actually be really harmful to Lemmygrad. .com hijacking is a very real thing, because when people hear the name of a website they automatically assume it’s a .com domain. Like, name-they-heard.com is just what they’ll instinctively type into the browser. Tons of websites have been seriously affected by domain flippers buying the .com of their site name and redirect it to porn or shock sites, and basically try to get the website to pay ludicrous amounts of money to buy the .com off them so half their clients aren’t getting porn shoved in their faces.
With this, it might be even more insidious because people who don’t know anything about lemmygrad could see their site, and genuinely assume it’s the real Lemmygrad.
Just because people believe it doesn’t mean it’s correct. People believed the sun revolved around the earth too, that was an obvious fact for the longest time.
That’s the whole damn reason papers exist my dude. If you want people to take you seriously, you better justify your views with evidence. This isn’t the middle ages anymore.
Look, can we all agree that it doesn’t even look good? I know a lot of Nazis like to cover their true intentions with “I just think it’s stylish, I didn’t even know it was a Nazi symbol!” With some of the more abstract and lesser known symbols. But this? This looks like a cheap sticker from the goodamn fascist dollar store. Or fascist ShutterStock and someone fired up Inkscape and doodled it in five minutes while not even looking at the screen!
Also: does that mean you’re only ever allowed an account on one instance? If you have accounts on multiple instances (one per instance) and get banned on one, you’re evading a ban by having the others?
I wouldn’t call it ban evasion unless you were specifically using your other account in that way, rather I think most instances will ban all of a person’s known accounts if they’re banning them, but that’s definitely not a hard and fast rule. Pretty sure there are some instances that don’t even prohibit ban evasion.
Not allowed to say who, but I will say that the beehaw ban was not by the Lemmy.ml admins.
Personally, I think she shouldn’t be on YouTube for a completely different reason. The internet is actually unsafe for children that young and there are a lot of disgusting pervs on YouTube. You’re not supposed to be on social media till you’re 13, and I think even that is too young, a safer age is probably 15 or 16.
And as we’ve seen here, if you’re from a country the west hates, you’re a target. Even if you’re a child. Not against people in the DPRK posting to YouTube, obviously, but for their safety it should be limited to full adults only.
