Talked to quite a few activists lately who were questioning their dedication to non-violence.
And for every person who was held back by fear of the power of cops, prisons or fascists, there was a person who was held back by fear of their own power.
'Cause once you decide/discover that you have the power to punch, to break, to sabotage, it's up to you how to use or not use it.
And it's much easier to maintain a view of yourself as a good person within the framework of non-violence.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Singular "they" is older
Than singular "you"
I guess this is an un-subtoot
ahhh yes, between anarchists and MLs/stalinists the group most known for backstabbing the other, putting them in jail, and carrying out purges of them is <<definitely>> the anarchists.
Clearly the anarchos pissed off at you enough to say you're acting like 'fash painted red' aren't responding to any acts of violence, threats, or historical precident and are themselves the scary violent ones. /s
"The resistance continues !
We will never give up. As long as #Erdogan's troops are here, as long as nation-states exist, as long as men dominate women. Resistance continues.
Berxwedan Jiyane !
Resistance is Life !"
Forcing a huge portion of the population to remove their body hair, while also encouraging them not to take part in physical activities/etc as youth (for example by making them wear clothes that are more difficult or unacceptable to move around in, like skirts) is a big way we reinforce the idea of a biological sex binary, while creating the outward appearance of one.
So-called "secondary sex characteristics" (outside of those influenced by hormones, and that varies) are wholey manufactured.
racism & misogyny
"The Casualties of Women's War on Body Hair"
"Hair removal, at its core, is a form of gendered social control . . . [Herzig] writes that the effect of this hairlessness norm is to 'produce feelings of inadequacy and vulnerability, the sense that women’s bodies are problematic the way they naturally are.'"
A known dumbass, baking my way to revolution.
Disastrously bi enby transfemmeby, full of love, and so very very tired.
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
