for me, working on fediverse tech is something i see as an investment in making a better world for our future generations.
while it is impossible for me to physically have kids (that's a long story, for another day), i do try to approach designing these sort of features from the perspective of "how would this impact my kid's ability to use this network?"
writing off safety tools as "enabling safe space snowflakes" is an extremely ignorant position to have. nobody owes you a "debate" or anything else. all users must instead be empowered to engage the fediverse on their own terms.
