Portland, hate crimes, fuck the police
Solid follow-up from The Mercury about why the local LGBTQ community has not been talking to the cops about recent attacks from far-right, bigoted cowards:
So glad to see all the incredible organizing happening around community safety and support, because the cops never have and never will protect us.
Stay together, stay tight!
broke: assuming everyone on the web goes by he/him
joke: referring to people by they/them until you are familiar with their pronouns
woke: checking the profiles of everyone you talk to to find out their pronouns
bespoke: regularly checking the profiles of even your oldest mufos to see if their pronouns have changed because you respect their agency and want to give them space to blossom
your daily reminder that the sudden elimination of a capitalist state will not address homophobia, racism, ableism, and other implicit biases
even if the revolution was tomorrow, we would still have work to do to get to an actually equitable world
one of the reasons that white anarchists frustrate me is this belief that if you topple the state, the goodness of people will float up and all that pesky racism stuff will melt away.
this is a dangerous belief. the revolution doesn't end at revolt.
