so tired of anarchy's only vibe being punk.
instead of white boys drawing graffiti on brick walls, give me black lesbians harvesting the vertical farm on the side of their collectively governed skyscraper
instead of white boys wearing black and flipping off cops, show me an open air market that doesn't need police because everyone can take what they need
vandalizing walls and flipping off cops are valid forms of resistance, but what we're fighting for is beautiful too
bored? taking things apart can be a fun activity and a great way to improve yourself.
here's some things to try dismantling:
- an old radio
- a wall clock
- the police
- a wind-up toy
In Havana they have a city-wide LAN network for playing games. That kind of thing is just impossible under capitalism.
like i can make a UI that works and looks nice. I can make maintable, modular UIs. I've learned a lot about the design of things and I'm confident that I can do it, but again. I would be a girl doing UI. I would be main character in a barbie learns how to code picture book. I would transform into the diversity character in a sitcom about FOSS.
like one half of me is like "FOSS needs good UI engineers. this is ridiculously important for the health and wellbeing of FOSS as a whole. If users can't use it it's pointless." and the other half of me is like "ONLY GIRLS DO UI, IF I DO UI I'LL BE A GIRL DOING UI FUCK THAT I'M A BACKEND ENGINEER IF YOU ASK ME TO DO UI I'LL ATTACK YOU"
Every "women and nonbinary people" space or FLIT space I have ever visited has felt unwelcoming towards non-binary people who looked too much like what society says are cis men.
Whether implicit or explicit, the transphobia and rejection has always been in the air.
Unless such a space explicitly mentions that they stand up to this kind of shit and will defend non-binary people who face this type of hostility in their space, I assume their event is unsafe because this shit just keeps happening
apparently a colonist had a farm and he was so shit at farming that he depleted literally all of the topsoil and created a fucking desert in the middle of Maine. Incredible.
"oh, you were probably only hired because you're cis, white and male. You better be ready to actually work for that position because you're not gonna get a pass like that again in a meritocracy"
"you know, you're pretty lucky to be a white dude in tech right now, what with all the hiring initiatives going on. oh? you haven't heard? No, I'm talking about that SUPER big one, literally every tech company is in on it already, it's been going on for a while but it's been massively successful! soon everybody in tech is gonna look like you! :)"
for fuck's sake
angela martinez gomez, murdered by corporate fucks and their patent disregard for human life, and they *blamed it on her hrt*. its racism, its classism, its transphobia, its untenable and its been like this for so long and nothing's changing. im just pissed off. she deserved better. she deserved dignity. she deserved to rest. every poor brown and black trans woman deserves better.
