You know what? Being called out is no big deal. I've been on here since fall 2017, I've talked to pretty much everyone who's ever been big on the Fedi, I've seen communities rise and fall.
Do you really think I never fucked up? I said a bunch of bullshit in my time, I got called out on it, I apologised, questioned my biases, and did better, and we all moved on. That's just part of how we do things #onhere.
But when you receive criticism, the one thing you don't do when you get calle out on something you said that people thought was hurtful or harmful, is to double down and attack them for working up the courage to tell you you hurt them.
Christ. It's not *that* hard to swallow one's pride just once in a while.
