financial support for arrested activist 

Logan Glitterbomb (@Glitterbomb) of C4SS was arrested after a group of reactionaries in Florida threatened her over a BLM facemask and she responded by letting them know she was armed. She needs $10,000 for a legal defense ($4,525 has been raised at the time of posting). As a trans woman with chronic health conditions, going to prison would be a dangerous risk for her. Please consider donating and spread this post around.

queer homestead support 

Coup de Main is an intentional community being built by anarchists & left-libertarians in Louisiana to provide a sanctuary for queer people in one of the most conservative states in the US, a space for local homeless people to sleep, and a space for community organizing.

In order to expand and keep the community alive, Coup de Main needs supplies. If you're interested in the project, you can donate to their GoFundMe below.

Introduction 3.0 

Howdy. I'm a queer factory worker, infrequent blogger, and sleepy enby.

I mostly complain about shitty current events and dream of beautiful future events. Occasionally I talk about video games.

I'm an anarchist without adjectives. But I'm also deeply interested in individualist, mutualist, and transhumanist schools of anarchism, as well as anarchist ethics. You'll find a ton of that here too.

That's pretty much it. Feel free to stick around. <3

HIV vaccine 

This is really cool. They also plan on working with Moderna to test an mRNA vaccine that gets the same results, which would make an HIV vaccine available far faster if it works.

Giving the State more power to combat "extremism" will only result in more repression of social movements, not put a stop to rampant far-Right violence which threatens the public. rightsanddissent.org/news/a-ch

alt. social media & politics 

And I don't think it's as bad here. It's still something to keep in the back of our minds. Social media like Mastodon or SSB or whatever are for more than politics.

Part of the reason I'm posting this is because I'm thinking of moving a lot more personal stuff over to the fediverse.

alt. social media & politics 

A thing I worry about with alternative social media is that these sites will mainly be used as a gathering place for people with politics outside the norm, and little else. You can definitely see this with Gab; many of the top discussion groups on that site are about conservatism, politics, how Joe Biden is secretly a lizard person, etc.

What I just said might sound like I'm saying we shouldn't talk about politics, which is wrong.

so i'm getting top surgery at the end of the month — yay! — and i have someone to take care of me — yay! — but my roommate is being called back in to in-person work *the same day* as my surgery, which is . . . not ideal

i've booked an AirBnB for the first ~week after recovery so that i have somewhere to stay with my caretaker where we won't be at risk for covid exposure from my roommate, but a week-long AirBnB in NYC is . . . pricey, and i was not planning to spend quite so much on this

i'm in the v privileged position that i'm not facing like, financial destitution, but it's gonna be Tight, and if you have any extra money that you don't have bookmarked for other causes, i would be *very* grateful to have a little extra help for my recovery <3

You are not obligated to talk about being nonbinary anymore than you must speak about your other characteristics.

You should be able to have a private existence if you want just like all people.

patriarchy in black rose 

Black Rose Anarchist Federation apparently has a history of silencing and sidelining marginalized groups --- women and nonbinary people in particular --- within its organization while presenting an anarchafeminist face in public. Weaponized bureaucracy, cliques of male members spreading rumors to dodge critique, no accountability processes, etc. Be wary of Black Rose in the future.

The FBI is trying to paint Daniel Baker - an antifascist arrested for calling for counter-protests on J6 as a terrorist for volunteering with the YPG in the fight against ISIS - literally the same group the US was supporting with airstrikes. washingtonpost.com/nation/2021

We’ve just reprinted To Change Everything, our anarchist outreach project. As the dust settles from the Trump era, this is a good time to articulate and popularize a critique of authoritarian power.

COVID, vaccines, and resistence to IP 

There’s already no reason for intellectual property to exist, and there’s even less of a reason to let IP make companies rich and fuck over other people in the middle of a pandemic that has killed over two million people worldwide.
