I feel like "dont mix patterns" is just a cowardly heterosexual way of looking at fashion

This is a humorous, but also pretty dark pattern in American imperialism, wherein nothing is every annex, or stolen outright. No, Americans simply purchase the lands from their current owners- like good capitalists.

I love how many online textbooks make it insanely easy to copy them, by literally just loading each page as an image from some CDN with a token and a predictable naming scheme, which means I can just slap the token in cURL in a ZSH script that downloads each page and stitches them into a PDF

Age appropriate sex ed, abuse prevention 

But you know what you run the risk of if you don't teach them an age appropriate concept of body autonomy and consent? They become easier prey for abusers.

Kids need to know their bodies belong to them, and they get to control what is done with it. You start small and expand on that concept as time goes by. If they don't know that, they are in some degree of danger.

transphobia 

peak academia is corresponding with a colleague who has her pronouns in her email signature but totally disregards mine also on my signature, especially when it's someone who specializes in gender studies, and especially after she's seen them on Zoom calls, bio note, etc.

1. Images
Some people on the Fedi can't see your memes, doggos, flowers, art. That doesn't mean we wouldn't want to enjoy them.
There are also those who have to browse on data, and turned loading images off to save it. Those things eat up quite a bit of bandwidth!
And there are those who have trouble figuring out what they are looking at. Maybe because of the way their brain works, maybe because your image isn't clear to everyone.
You can help all of those by writing a caption for your image.
It doesn't need to be an essay. Even just a few words will do. Enough to explain the joke, or the cute pose your kitten is making. Don't worry about it; just write something!
If you have trouble remembering to do so, and would like a reminder, follow @PleaseCaption
