Gender miners have to perform a phenomenally large number of calculations to track and verify genders and solve complex puzzles to obtain new genders. As genders become more popular and valuable, the puzzles miners face grow more difficult, and therefore the demand for high-powered gender processing grows as well.

Something really fascinating has happened with wrestling. About a year and a half ago we had the emergence of AEW, the now number 2, mainstream TV wrestling promotion in the US that pushed itself as being "For Everyone" with non-binary and trans wrestlers on their roster, and taking steps to change their show to be inclusive towards audience members with sensory needs (just to throw out examples of their stance).
Then the subsequent number 1 promotion, WWE run by the McMahons who are heavily invested in republican politics with Linda McMahon serving in Trumps cabinet, lengthy investment deals with the Saudis etc, moving one of their shows into the same direct time slot as AEW on wednesday nights, for what is known in wrestling as a war (akin to the famous Monday Night Wars of the late 90s with WCW vs WWF).
The resulting waves of AEW working to be more inclusive was that several wrestling fan spaces had to decidw whether to start to moderate things like transphobia or not, and down that line of politics effectively there has become a partisanal divide where the spaces that now are for WWE fans has started to turn into 4chan like memes and aggression.
Felons in Florida can't vote until they've paid off all their court fees. This effects around 700,000 people who have served their sentences. They mostly owe between $400.00 and $1000.00.
Florida's prison system, like the rest of the US, is racist, so this is an aspect of systemic disenfranchisement. Obviously the law needs to be changed, but in the mean time, you can donate to help people vote again. https://www.gofundme.com/f/end-the-poll-tax
Florida is, of course, a crucial swing state.
