@hasya23 Can't wait to teach the Economist about anarcho-satanism.

------ queer politics, uhhh other stuff, abuse 

I feel like there might be a largely unfilled niche for articles about how to unlearn sexism/racism/homophobia/transphobia for neuroatypical people who don't understand most unspoken neurotypical things.

With like, really specific social situations described with the exact details that make a sexist microaggression so different from the very similar non-sexist social option in that situation.

& maybe self-help support groups for neuroatypical people learning that stuff.

@lunaterra @queeranarchism it's so very easy to get swept up, to hope that you don't have to be one of the oppressed. It's so easy to think that exclusionists wouldn't also exclude you if they could. It's the sickest kind of hope, and it's what the toxic conservatives have been using for decades to convince the white working man that all the various Others are his true enemies, rather than the excessively powerful and wealthy elites who want to maintain the sick status quo.

They're very good at this, and they're always looking for new vectors to spread the infection along.

The is a war of memetics, and your uncle is one of the infected.

@queeranarchism @mxsparks it's definitely a reminder to trust people based on their actions vs. anything else.

White abled middle class gay men are the most sensitive to this because they are one step away from enjoying all the privileges of the system,

and it is very tempting for them to belief that people exactly like them are their allies, while people not like them - refugees, muslims, trans people, working class people, angry social justice activists - are the enemies.

But they’re not the only ones for whom this mode of thinking is tempting. No lgbt identity is entirely immune from this.

Gay men are increasingly voting for anti-LGBTQ right-wingers: lgbtqnation.com/2019/02/gay-me

“LGBT people — especially gay men — are not inherently progressive voters. Give them the chance and they will vote for xenophobia, for racism, and for misogyny.”

From over here in Europe: YES. This is a very serious issue. Capitalism and white supremacy are very capable of incorporating some lgbt people.

& the people that do both are a joy to know.

"Aggressive direct action is seen as far too important" versus "aggressive direct action is not seen as important enough" is often a really useless conversation if you're not actually in the same local scene or both physically familiar with the same local scene.

There isn't one big uniform anarchist culture (and there shouldn't be).
