I should also note that the response from the thousands of gov't employees using Rocket.Chat is... it's excellent, and the unanimous postings on their "#feedback" channel are "keep this going after the pilot! We use it every day!"...
@drifting_in_circles @red Same. We explained trans-ness to our kids and plenty of other things to our kids. They're mostly like, "Oh. OK." Kids already don't understand a lot about their worlds. Telling them that gender is more complicated than "boy" and "girl" isn't going to be some giant shock of something they've thought was a universal truth. They are constantly having shit they thought they understood overturned. Often without even being explicitly taught something. It's a lot of what being a kid is.

Banning certain kinds of speakers from topical/local communities, companies, events, and own homes (i.e. self-censoring, not required by the state) is not the same thing as taking away a rights from them (they won't be jailed for what they've said). So the whining about the censorship in the communities is just that.
I heard people said "you have to listen to me!". No I don't. And, if you think I have to, your culture is really broken, TBH.
