your daily reminder that the sudden elimination of a capitalist state will not address homophobia, racism, ableism, and other implicit biases
even if the revolution was tomorrow, we would still have work to do to get to an actually equitable world
one of the reasons that white anarchists frustrate me is this belief that if you topple the state, the goodness of people will float up and all that pesky racism stuff will melt away.
this is a dangerous belief. the revolution doesn't end at revolt.
Even if a non-binary person is openly trans, revealing what that non-binary person’s ‘gender assigned at birth’ was without their consent is a huge privacy violation.
When you do this you are allowing transphobes to more effectively misgender them. You are often revealing details about their genitals and hormone/surgery choices. You are taking away their chance to be seen for who they are on their own terms.
Don’t do that.ever.
