Mermaids, TERFs, and a handy way to donate to the former Show more
In light of glinner and associated dipshits putting Mermaids' Lottery funding under threat, you might be interested to know that they're one of the charities you can pick to support in any Humble Bundle dealings that let you pick the charity.
Just in case you want to support a charity dedicated to helping trans kids AND get yourself some videogames in the process.

overpopulation Show more
is a myth. Period. It's a lie popularized by capitalists who don't want to have to change their ways.
The problem is not that we have too many people; we as a species produce enough food in a year to feed the entire population several times over. The problem is that corporations would rather throw food away than give it to someone who hasn't paid for it. Food waste (corporate, not personal) is an enormous problem, and "overpopulation" is the myth they use to deflect from it.
politics, facebook groups Show more
around 2015-2016 I was an active member of some leftbook (left facebook) groups and it was honestly the worst environment for socialist discussion I've ever seen online

gender affirmation surgery costs - request for donations Show more
I have been given a date for my initial consultation with a surgeon in London next month (January). Travel costs for me and my partner are going to be around £250. I feel really bad about doing this but if you can spare anything I would really appreciate the support. I have paid for the train tickets using a credit card so I'm not desperate for the money but anything at all would help make things a bit easier. Boosts welcome. #TransCrowdFund #ShowUpForWishes
i'm always baffled by people who go full "you woundn't download a car" over video games, we're talking about multi national coperations, the people who do the actual work aren't getting royalties, unless they are one person teams or that one cooperative, a lot of them dont even work for the companies involved, they are just contractors
the people your getting mad for are a bunch of executives and share holders
Serial abuser, sexual assault, LB Show more
Laurelai Bailey is an alleged serial sexual predator with several victims in the trans and leftist community. These claims do not come from Kiwifarms (where she was a member). They come from known individuals.
I have had little to no interpersonal interaction with her. She followed me for months on Twitter for my politics. I have no reason to hold a grudge. I simply believe her victims.
New users, stay safe. Avoid starrevolution and kitty.town.
🚨 PSA FOR NEW USERS 🚨 CW: abuse, rapist, drama, here we go again Show more
Several new Tumblr refugees have landed on her instance, starrevolution. They can't see this, but, I'm hoping to somehow help someone not stumble into a really bad situation. She will tell you that I am an abuser for letting you know this public information, or a nazi, or whatever else.
Please do not respond to the inevitable subtoots. Please do not try to start a discourse. Just, be aware, and stay safe. Thanks y'all.

Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
