I know my art has changed a lot of people's minds about gender and stuff, but it's usually directed at an audience who already is left-leaning or centrist. like I make an assumption that the person looking at the pic has some level of empathy for the other, and themselves.

incels, TERFs, and racist non-black/non-indigenous POC seem to have a psychology that's more like, they are being screwed by society and they recognize that, but instead of targeting the oppressive systems causing it, they engage in lateral violence towards other marginalized groups.

i'm curious if there's any common thread among people who were de-radicalized from right to left

When I look up stories of ex-kkk, ex-nazis and such, usually the stories go "I was raised by my family to hate blacks and jews until I met one and they were nice to me." So basically they were like normal people who escaped a cult. But a lot of alt-righters, especially younger people, were radicalized through the internet and just seem sociopathic

if we were to start rolling out the abolition of the police, I'm curious what all the ex-cops would do?? sociopaths don't just disappear into the ether. if you look at the history of the reconstruction era, there was such a huge backlash from racists that they seeded themselves in revisionist history books, propaganda, cultural displays, and, well, the police. there needs to be some way to prevent this from happening again in a new form

i must remember next time to disable replies when i post porn to the birdsite, i have too many followers there to control what kind of weirdness gets posted under my art

@shoofle would it? I feel like people can easily avoid a downtown area to not encounter a protest, but if every other street corner had a small group, it might be different. but yeah, coordination would be hard

if protests were spread throughout the city instead of concentrated in downtown areas, would it prevent infection while also being more difficult for cops to cover that much ground? or is this a dumb idea

This is what I get for sitting on my ass on this comic instead of pushing it out. ToT I'm so bad about this stuff...

For a couple years now I had been planning to make a fantasy comic about a prince and a knight where the end message is that the monarchy and knights/military are terrible (a sort of fantasy ACAB), but the point isn't made until the middle of the story. But since more people are aware of police abolition I'm having second thoughts. Sometimes people don't have the patience to wait for turned tables

only just now realized I spelled Ursula Le Guin incorrectly u.u

@bamfic yeah, I just mean it's different when you read about it in a history book vs carrying it out IRL
