g20 protests, activism meta,represssion, police
i think its related to the lack of actual support networking in leftist activism. if you have a safety net of people protecting each other, its much easier to do militant direct action. i have seen that grow after it i think. maybe due to the prevalence of police trauma and people starting to realize the lack of praxis that is traditionally feminized labor.
structures like ende gelände are interesting because of the explicit focus on support imo, i have seen a lot of people deciding to do action because they felt safer there.
whenever someone says something like "I wish I was a real boy" I always think about how many lies it took for them to get to that point.
as if there's some gender gatekeeper somewhere who gets to decide which people are allowed to be boys and which aren't.
or that genders even exist in some mathematically comparable way in the first place.
gender dysphoria isn't feeling bad because you have the wrong gender.
gender dysphoria is someone actively manipulating you into believing you have the wrong gender because they think they can make some sort of gain off of your discomfort.
they don't see you as a person. they see your existence as a roadblock on their path to whatever evil mastermind scheme they're trying to make happen.
so who are you going to listen to? your friends, or someone who doesn't even care if you exist?
@guerrillarain i'm autistic and this kinda thing in, like, tv dramas for example, just sets me the fuck off. It's just too stressful for me, idk. beats me how anyone can watch dramas honestly
I understand this to be an issue for other ND ppl too actually 🤷
Farts. No really. Stock up on beans and onions the day before, stand next to a cop during a protest (preferably indoors or on a windless day) and let 'em rip. One isn't gonna make much of an impression so better cook for all your friends. It's especially funny when the cop can't move from his position.
for halloween i'm going as a neurotypical person
ooOOOOoooh i'm going to imply something important and get upset when you didn't understand the subtext instead of just telling yooouuuu! ooOOOoOOooh you should spend more time outside your comfort zoooone! ooOOOOooooh you just need to stay pooositiiive
Thought Slime did a video about the people getting pissy about She-Ra, and about halfway through the video, after going through the typical debunking stuff, he says "And even if that *is* their intention, who cares? ... Wait, who cares...? How did they trick me into talking about this?"
And then spends the rest of the video talking about why that kind of response video misses the point and is exactly what they're banking on, because they don't care and might not even believe that Netflix is masculinizing She-Ra, what they care about is that if that were happening it'd be a bad thing. And by spending 20 minutes debunking the physical claim, you kinda implicitly admit that it *would* be bad if it was happening
And I love that some people are talking about that. TS and BadEmpanada spend most of their time actually talking about leftist thought or politics, while the rest on the list use media analysis as a vehicle for talking about it, and I highly recommend all of them
Filling in a document with your full name, address, phone number and admit willingness to commit crimes that the UK is willing to prosecute under terrorism laws......
fuck. Maybe it really is time for all other groups to start boycotting collaboration with XR. This isn’t a simple ‘let’s agree to disagree’. This is a 'you clearly don’t value the safety of activists at all so I’m gonna stay very far away from you’ thing.
Never (but never) use WD-40 or 3-in-1 oil as a lubricant on anything. These are not lubricants. These are water displacement oils. They're meant to prevent rust and they're really good at doing that but party of why they're really good at that is that they thicken when exposed to air.
Don't want your lubricant getting all gummy? Good. Don't use water displacement oils as lubricants even if they do help momentarily.
