Republicans in Florida, Mississippi, and Indiana - under the guise of fighting 'domestic terrorism' - are re-introducing laws that would further criminalize protest movements like Occupy, Standing Rock, and BLM.


posting this big list of black-owned goth brands again because i keep continually coming back to it and it's such a good resource:

Don’t forget, it has been a traumatic year for Black people. White people, how are you going into this new Gregorian year without adding to the problem (and not just writing BLM in your bio🧐)

Transmisogyny, colonialism, genocide mention 

All oppression is structural

All transphobia is grown on histories of genocidal colonial transmisogyny- as in we have literal records of targeted exterminations of peoples who would be considered TMA at the start of colonization

Almost all social hatred against trans ppl, legal policy, structural access denial, terf actions are targeting TMA people first

splash damage from this field of total dehumanizing violence =/= living in it from birth

From LLTWID: "Rather than being something that limits my liberty, participating in society is a precondition of my liberty. Freedom is not best understood as “me alone in the woods with no interference from anyone else.” If I was alone in the woods forever, I would die"

From LLWID: "All the time people ask me how we can continue to make this or that object (eyeglasses, let’s say, or antibiotics). The answer is deceptively simple: we’ll just continue to make those things. Our economic system is not what grows and distributes food, nor conducts research, nor builds houses. People do."

From LLTWID: "When “the shit hits the fan” (it’s such a cliche that I have a hard time saying it outside of scare quotes: the shit is always hitting the fan for huge chunks of society. Poverty and marginalization are their own forms of apocalypse. And even the breakdown of larger society is rarely a fast event with clearly demarcated moments of “[shtf]”)social and property relations become a lot more malleable. People who’ve never had community are likely to find themselves with [it]."

From LLTWID:"Despite what capitalist society has led us to believe, healthy and genuine relationships are not transactional: preparedness relationships are not based on simple exchange like “I made him dinner, so he’ll fix my radios.” It’s closer to “I made him dinner while he was busy doing childcare for several people in the community, and some of those people help me fix my car when it breaks down.”

guns, food 

From LLTWID:"The point of being prepared, as an individual, is that you’re better situated to help your community. The more of my own shit I have sorted out, the less I need to rely on others and the more I’m able to help people."

guns, food 

From Live Like the World is Dying: "Prepping has a bad name for a good reason. For as long as I’ve been alive, the public face of prepping has been strange old men with bunkers full of canned food who have more guns than they have friends. It’s not a good look."

racism, fascism 

@dl @kittenlikeasmallcat

All this makes sense. BUT I'll still view with real caution any other White person who tries to boil it down to, "Stop talking about Kristelnacht when Tulsa happened," and so on. (Literally saw this just recently.) Because I'm Jewish, and I have two hands, and I can think about more than one genocide at a time.

re: racism, fascism 

@kittenlikeasmallcat This is absolutely a valid critique but I also want to underline that there is also a very well established neo-nazi movement in the United States that has been absolutely thriving for the past 5 years.

They fly the literal Nazi flag. They salute each other with variations of Nazi salutes and phrases. They find each other using coded Nazi language.

Not all Klansmen are Nazis, but not all Nazis are Klansmen, either.

goth shitposting 

Fuck looking dark academia cottagecore. Aesthetically I'm going for cybergoth raver zombie who has been buried in moss behind the army surplus storage barn since the 90's and is now a lesbian farmhand and local bike mechanic.

I don't think people realize why its important to remove white supremacists from your board/forum/web community.

- They are extremely motivated.
- They have a tradition of recruiting via meme(in the classic sense).
- They have centuries of effective propaganda.
- They will take over. Slowly at first then suddenly.
- They will always create more moderation work for you. They will never stop pushing.

Every society struggles with this. And it's not some conspiracy.

The gender of the day is a spectral hag in a crumbling graveyard.

COVID thoughts, anarchism 

I think a decentralized, horizontal social structure could deal with a pandemic a lot faster than the current hierarchical one if rapid DNA/RNA sequencing were available.

It takes 2 days to make a given amount of the covid-19 vaccine.

Imagine if your autonomous neighborhood apothecary had what was needed to just make the fucking vaccine automatically?

racism, fascism
