Tailwind and the Femininity of CSS

I don't have much against Tailwind, but it's not a framework I would use. I've avoided Bootstrap and others for a long time unless I want to quickly prototype and the footprint is of no consequence to the wider web.

These frameworks aren't inherently bad. They lower the barrier to actually put working CSS on a website. They're especially handy when it comes to rapid prototyping; spinning up basic UI has never been easier. The API-like patterns are familiar to many developers.

I've always got on with CSS because I understood how it works fairly well. Yes, I'm still learning but on the whole I'm more than competent in building a UI from scratch.

The important bit is that they hinder deep learning of CSS. This is not to say that every developer needs to have intimate knowledge of CSS when launching a personal project, but that major businesses need to invest in hiring front-end designers that specialize in this area.

NES Car

I love this render of a NES themed car so much. If this was real, I'd put up with the square wheels.

I'm Black but look White. Here are the horrible things white people feel safe telling me.

Miriam Zinter's response to people who say "But you're different!":

Sometimes they say: “But you're different!” Then I ask them if other Black folks they know are also “different.” When they say yes, I ask them: “How are all the Black people you know ‘different'? When are you going to realize that we are not different? That you have been misled into believing that Black people are somehow bad, and that what you see with your own eyes ― these Black people you know, and know are not different or bad ― are good people like you?”
