Remember: if you feel ugly, who is benefiting from that? Who profits off of your belief that you need to alter your appearance?

Accepting yourself as you are is a radical act. Love you all.

Gentle reminder to look for mutual aid opportunities in your area, such as free stores and food shares, that are assisting people affected by the #shutdown and offer to help if you can

I always get asked why I promote youth rights and alt-education systems. Always have even when I (thought I) was right-libertarian.

Societal change starts with the youth. Even many here probably aren't "woke" enough, haven't internalized critical concepts that go against our authoritarian upbringing.

The point cannot be emphasised enough: surveillance capitalism is not technology. Digital technologies can take many forms and have many effects, depending upon the social and economic logics that bring them to life. Surveillance capitalism relies on algorithms and sensors, machine intelligence and platforms, but it is not the same as any of those.'

Did zines and articles make most anarchists into anarchists?

Or did experiences with capitalism & the state + experiences with self-organisation make anarchists into anarchists, while zines and articles provided the step of helping them find a word and theory for what they already were?

Male privilege is not knowing WTF you're doing, doing it anyway, and either having it turn out OK anyway -- or being shielded from the consequences.

A recent survey found 1 in 5 LGBT adults has avoided medical care out of fear of discrimination and 80 percent of physicians say they feel "not competent" to treat LGBT patients. So, medical schools are identifying ways to better instruct on LGBT health.

At least one in 10 Americans have been told they’re allergic to penicillin –– but the vast majority of them can tolerate the antibiotic just fine, research finds. And that matters for their care. @WBUR
