I'm not currently in such dire staits as I was pre-move, but my family could always use help. I have to pay some recurring expenses related to domain names, and could always use help with groceries and bills for the household.

I've switched off of ko-fi and liberapay for now, and moved to buymeacoffee.com/boofie which allows one-time donations, or a recurring "membership" for $2.

Thank you all for the support I recieved previously! A successful story for ! Make sure to support others via the tag before you start giving more than $2 monthly, which is why I've set that limit. I get a lot of reach on here, but no so much for others, so don't stop at this post.

anarchist pol, re: all uncw'd usian bullshit in advance 

I just block anyone who argues that (distorted and filtered) demographics legitimize the violence of the state. I fled the south because of the repurcussions of that inane bullshit, so here's your bi-annual advance notice for stupid loud americans going on moral diatribes about elections. So you could say it is a bit personal given the impact this bullshit has had on my life.

Here's an anarchist critique of democracy, just another of many ways of "governing".

Deposit your vote in the replies and I promise I will give it the same serious consideration any government official would 🗨️➡️🚽.

This little rant is nowhere near as much a waste of time as an entire fucking "election year". The purpose of a system is what it does, not your immaterial patriotic bullshit.

- politics
- :tankies:
- 💸 (so-called "market anarchists" or libs)
- nationalism (grow up from wounded fairy tales)
- new age spiritualism / new athiesm
- divorced dad-ism (move on)
- missionaries / evangelists
- white vegan health cults (you are racist)
- Britishism
- paranoid, insecure settler
- journalist (derogatory)
- your *entire* personality is being an "____ parent"
- hippies
- CIS military apologetica
- cisgender apologetica
- fascism
- stallmanism, OSI and FSF techbro cults
- cable television commentary (I cut the cable for a reason)
- go to the polls! electoralism religious adherent
- resource scarcity-FUD hyper for eco fascists

- obviously anything antisemitic or transphobic
- pollsters, quizzers, and petitioners
- anti-piracy (MPAA's hiring, fuckface)

I wish anarchists were... anarchist. The dilution of the revolutionary anarchist aesthetic online to near meaninglessness has me uncertain about who actually has my back. For the record, when I say I'm an anarchist, I mean *all hierarchies* are bad and unsafe. All cops, all empires, all states. If you disagree, why is it in your bio and so core to how you style yourself online? It feels like a lie.

LGBT and Marginalized Voices Are Not Welcome on Threads

Being an Arab academic in the West is to know for a fact that your universities back home can be bombed in clear war crimes and it makes absolutely no difference to the Western academic establishment

I am pretty sure most people use the internet for strangers 

If the internet as a social phenomenon is a place where you are expected to have fun being around strangers constantly then I think I am doing a good job destroying that. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to destroy that expectation, because professionalism and mass appeal FUCKING SUCK.

I like the model of finding other people who are fucked up like me to make friends with much better than my computer trying to deconstruct my pleasure pathways algorithmically.

"But Mia," you ask "How can a home get 240VAC service using only 120VAC line to neutral circuits??"

All these LLMs and yet, no reincarnation of BonziBuddy?

"maam what makes you think youll be good for the position of "head bug researcher""

"i....see."

Is the word "season" in relation to a video game the general word that marketers use for the rotating DLC system designed to create fear of missing out?

All that makes me want to do is wait until the game is actually fully released, or just never buy it. Sounds anxiety-inducing to regularly lose access to parts of games you enjoy.
