Hello everyone! I've got a new article out at New Normative, about Heaven Will Be Mine!
Y'alllllllll I'm bouncing up and down with excitement thanks to the episode of @terminuspod I made this afternoon, it's my favorite thing I've made in like goddamn six years
As an anarchist I'm against death penalty and, consequently, against exile.
If your idea of justice implies condemning member of oppressed social groups to exile and death we will never be comrades.
If you care about victims of abuse go give them some support. If you can't deal with someone who had been accused of a crime, let others deal with the work of rehabilitation.
But do not advocate for their exile and death.
And you’re looking me in the eye, right hand over your heart, and telling me that we should ban a means of self-defense during this moment in history. What the fuck is wrong with all of you. The kids I can understand because they just got shot at, they’re terrified and traumatized, but you armchair-riding motherfuckers are really going there.
Some #Resistance you’ve got going on.
ICE is an independent unaccountable police force who can round up people and disappear them at will.
Actual municipal police roam the streets with heavy weaponry and tactical gear.
We just spent four years in the midst of a “national conversation” on police killings of black people.
Fucking NAZIS are running for office TODAY.
Pushing aside the racism and ableism and utter fucking tonedeafness of a good chunk of the people wanting to ban guns, the stone fact of the matter is that the FIRST people to get their shit taken are marginalized people of all sorts.
Y’all want to pass gun control DURING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
And what did sex workers say? Oh that’s right, nobody was listening because it’s very evident that nobody gives a shit about inconvenient points when Something Must Be Done.
And this brings me back to the current gun control "conversation."
Oh and the reason I tagged that one toot #netneutrality? Because given who voiced their support for #SESTA and #FOSTA - Amy Schumer and Seth Meyer, for one - it’s a bit fucking hypocritical. The same voices screaming against private parties doing shit to the internet are fine with the state doing the same type of shit to the internet.
Sex workers, porn actors, people who write and draw smut, as well as the people who chronicle those people’s lives, are RIGHT NOW being shut out of the US internet with the stroke of a pen. #netneutrality
The government is a nuke that people from the “left” and the “right” like to wield like it’s a cartoon hammer. To y’all it’s great for dramatic effect but it has no major consequences for you. Meanwhile millions of people - queer, brown, disabled, and/or women - die.
So let's talk about guns.
I actually really don’t like guns. Like, I REALLY don’t like guns. A good number of the people I’ve met who do like guns are either impossibly fronting “macho” dudes or dudes who think they’re about to be sent to Spain circa 1938.
Yeah, I guess I could expend whole chunks of my time dunking on “woke” teenagers for not supporting the YPG or Redneck Revolt or for being into gun abolition or whatever but I just remembered that when I was in high school I wrote an impassioned plea to George W Bush to save Darfur. So. That's where I'm at.
I'm an anarchist, but also I like drawing and soft things || too many fucking podcasts to count
