Neoliberalism teaches us that what matters are individual acts. So, when we learn about Rosa Parks, we learn of one woman's spontaneous activism, not that she went to activist training and learned that a strategy existed that needed an unmarried black woman of her age and that people had been working towards the bus boycott & lawsuit for years.

Movements are devalued because they work. We are trained to see ourselves as consumer markets and individuals because that works for owners, not for us.

Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed, suicidal, or just needing someone to talk to, a crisis counselor will text with you? Many people do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting.

This is a legit thing. Never be afraid to ask for help .

friday i worked security for Trans Pride. it was half warily scanning for scary cis people, half "oh my god the fashion sense on this unbelievable cutie".

today, without letting myself think about it too much, i went out in public (briefly, short walk and a bus ride) in a dress, solo. so far: ok. little scary but fuck it i was already nervous anyway, for no reason.

i swear i'm NB and not trans. wait, i say i'm NB, i wear what i want and fuck the h8rs. that's supposed to be how it works right?

@starkatt blend of relationship and actual anarchist and the vaguely goth geeky feminist

wait, i just realized i need to invent socialist goth

telling yourself that everything is awful, & nothing can be fixed, is a marvelously expedient way to absolve yourself of responsibility. There is nothing about an apocalyptic worldview that obligates you to give up any of the comforts and conveniences that have accrued to you as a consequence of global injustice; & you get to feel superior to all those tender fools who still believe that a kinder world is possible!

If you post flashing or fast moving gifs, mark them as NSFW and put a warning in the text. Using a CW does not hide the image, so you need to use the NSFW function.

Do not use flashing or fast moving gifs as your avatar.

Observe those rules & reblog to save a life

and I mean that literally, flashing, strobing or fast moving gifs can trigger seizures and seizures can be life threatening

@starkatt i always turn the brightness down on mine fwiw. bottom setting is usually a lot like "off". sorry this is late <3
