I appreciate sighted fediverse users concern about image descriptions and ways to be "screenreader friendly." Mostly I agree with you, maybe with quibbles but they're not worth trying to nitpick and I'm aware I'm not the sole authority, just one visually impaired person.

But sometimes you all end up talking to each other and I worry that some of the advice that makes me wince is getting solidified into prescriptivism. Please make sure visually impaired people are part of these conversations.

leftist christianity 

Did you know that the Bible actually actively condemns tradition for tradition's sake?

It actually tells people to examine all traditions, look at why and if it still adds enrichment to your life, and then either toss it or keep it.

Tradition for tradition's sake is how you grow stale and how you stop growing, and that's dangerous, because you are called to grow.
