Pinned toot

Everyone doing again so I guess I will too, considering that I never did one...

Hi, I'm Restioson (he/him pronouns and they/them is fine too). I'm an anarcho-communist from South Africa (also white, a minor, and bi). I like programming and gaming (no nword gaming thanx) and hate nazis and capitalism. I shitpost a bit here and generally hang out. I'm also interested in isiXhosa (learning it as a first additional language at school) and I post about that when I can.

Moving to @restioson:breadpirates.chat from matrix.org, so that's where you can find me on Matrix in the future โœŒ๏ธ

Wrote this on a school wall outside. "Peace, bread, land" in isiXhosa. In retrospect, I believe that they regret giving me chalk.

Going into politics to do some good is like going into a car factory to grow tomatoes.

Youโ€™re throwing all your energy into a system that is designed to take your good intentions and process them into policy documents that either die on a desk somewhere or become part of the problem.

You could, with great effort, maybe grow a few tomatoes, but at what cost? how much more could you have grown if you had recognized that the system is a trap and planted your energy elsewhere?

@restioson @IngaLovinde @DissidentKitty Precisely. In a desperate attempt to invalidate an argument, status quo media frames dissent as a purely emotional response or reaction, implying illogicality.

Restioson :anarchiststar: boosted

@DissidentKitty Mhm. There's a materially beneficial profit motive to painting upset marginalized groups as furious, uncompromising, *violent*.

Restioson :anarchiststar: boosted

One thing I've noticed is that media is *very* content with categorizing any form of PoC dissenting as "outrage." I could post a tweet like,

"just watched wes andersons isle of dogs. bit orientalizing, no? lmfao anyway 2.5/5"

Take a moment to ponder how much more profitable it would be to report on an aggregate of posts in that nature and attitude and frame it as "outrage."

"Outrage" is inflammatory: it draws clicks. It always happens to PoC in order to present us as aggressive, threatening.
