abolitionists will recognize this sentiment: reductionism is a form of violence.
there is no simplifying something as complex and unique as a human moving through the world. any effort to reduce a living being into a list of characteristics will inevitably fall short of the whole.
the existence of gatekeepers is damaging and ultimately violent to the production of community and solidarity.
i’ve said it once and i’ll say it again:
kill the cop inside your head.
just the... rote-ness? of a quick clean "what are your safe words, what are your limits, what are you looking to get out of this, and here's my answers to those questions now get on your knees" is nskdkfjskdjhdakfk
Hey y'all. I was at work earlier so I made a quick post, but I'd like to take time to write a proper one.
An unhoused trans Black woman I have known for years here in Alabama is in desparate need of help. She is housed for tonight, but where she's staying costs $50 per night. Her CashApp is $inge73 and if you could help out, it would be so appreciated!
Nurses in Philly are saying fuck it we're reopening Hahnemann Hospital for patients whether we have your permission or not! This hospital was bought by investor Joel Freedman and shut down to be turned into condos. When the city wanted to re-open it for the pandemic he tried to charge $1m in rent so the city just gave up. It's been a huge point of contention in Philly for a while.
NOW THEY'RE OCCUPYING HAHNEMANN HOSPITAL AND SEIZING IT FOR THE PEOPLE!! Opening a CLINIC!! #phillyprotest

Leave your snitchphone at home.
Put it in airplane mode, if you just really can't tear yourself away from it (or if it's your only way to document the protest-breakers).
Seriously, this like half a step away from enabling realtime targeting.
Protect yourself, protect the people you're fighting for.
The first year I went to Pride in London after transitioning, cis gay people pointed and laughed at trans marchers.
This year, the /entire event/ was a march for #BlackTransLivesMatter
This is so beautiful. I'm not crying. You're crying.
"The Dixie Chicks announced today that they have changed the band’s name to the Chicks, shedding the racist implications of Dixie."
And their "first" track is "March March". It's a strong track, but the video's an outstanding compilation of protest, now and historic, finishing as a memorial.
Need financial help, boosts appreciated
