Good luck with your journey! Feel free to ask questions if you have any.

@gamayun
I've got a better example: без шелка and что это за щелка? Now I need to come up with an ambiguous sentence pair.
@gemlog

@gemlog
Is the difference similar to German shon and schön?

@gemlog
It's not exactly a minimal pair, but think of шок in Он испытал настоящий шок (He experienced a real shock) and щек in У него лицо без щёк (He has got a face without cheeks).

Is there a way to hide boosts of toots of users I follow? I usually see the original message and boosts are redundant in this case.

I went to a local pool this evening. It was surprisingly refreshing.

Ok, I'm sorry I'm an asshole, and that's my last message.

If it's not hate speech, then the gimp team can do whatever they want and then being assholes is your opinion.

@emsenn

I don't defend anyone. I see how the word is problematic, but I don't (yet) see how the core team can be forced to change the name.

@emsenn
I find the hate speech poimt the most important.

I don't see renaming the project as a universal solution, because of the examples I've provided: Pajero/vista/Nasri/pussy.

I believe that language is powerful enough to minimise the hurt of this name given that we on the day to day basis operate with ambiguous words.

Words to change their meanings, for example the word gay.

@emsenn
Of you want to go personal, I'm nothing and my opinion doesn't worth anything. I don't use GIMP and neither find it's name offensive.

I find the argument that the name of a project is hate speech weak, because one needs to show that it has power over the oppressed group.

These two books are good starting point. Lynne Tirrel's work goes in deep details.

@grainloom @rey @ekaitz_zarraga @hirojin

The second is that gimp is toxic speech that hurts people. To make this argument one needs to show that GIMP as a project has enough power to qualify as hate speech.
