reminder before canada day that canada was built on indigenous genocide, loves to erase its history of slavery, uses neoliberal "multiculturalism" as a shield to avoid criticism for its horrific record of police brutality (especially that of the RCMP) and to elide the fact that some 70% of the global mining interests pillaging the globe in the name of neocolonial empire are headquartered in toronto
Passing on something about white allyship
"Here’s what doesn’t help: taking on the mantle of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color’s rage and tearing down well-intentioned but ignorant white folks on our behalf. Our anger isn’t yours. It doesn’t belong to you. By being angry and berating other white people for being asleep all this time, you are actually centering yourself and your feelings — a mistake you should leave behind in White Allying 101."

Some notes for protesting. I am not making this public. I have notes at the bottom for if you want to share it.
—If you are livestreaming a protest, and you are recording yourself, or taking selfies, instead of documenting information: you are not an ally. You are a tourist.
—Cover your face. Cover your hair. Cover your tattoos. Wouldn’t want to have any surfaces exposed that could get coronavirus.
—Protect your identity. Obscure your face. There are bad actors on the internet that would love to identify you and track you down for participating in a peaceful protest. Want to feel paranoid? Read about the mysterious deaths of identified Ferguson protestors years later. If you are in the privileged majority, this might be your first time realizing that there are violent people out there who want to hunt you down and harm you for existing. Imagine how POC feel.
i once saw a dude bring a sex doll into a porn theater, lay it down in at the front of the theater, and start VIGOROUSLY fucking it in front of everyone.
but what made this extra double noteworthy is that he reached down a hand to play with the doll's clit and do dirty talk. so, like, i guess he knows what's up. but i was blown away by the level of consideration for the doll.
also,, he wore an olive green cloth poncho and looked like a low level wizard.
