More takes, re: tankies 

Ultimately, I believe in a future built on kindness and love. Towards each other, non-humans, and the planet. I cannot see how hardcore authoritarianism is compatible with that.

Theoryposting | Introduction | 1/? 

Okay, so I’ve been bandying this theory thing around in my head for a little bit. I wanted to post it for leftist folks who have other kinds of lived/theory experiences. It’s a lil in the weeds, might be a bit depressing, but take comfort in the fact that more likely than not I’m way off the mark. Still. I think it’s a useful train of thought to follow through to sharpen the way we think about power.

Introductory nonsense. Follow policy. 

Hi I’m Lilah! Most of what you need to know about me is in my profile. Only other thing you need to know is how I’ll respond to interactions:

if you dont tell your teenager that they have the right to agree to whatever sex they want to have with people their own age someone else will tell them that but probably/possibly leave out the fact that that includes the right to say no.

Making a support group for characters in animated media who have just realized that their surrogate family is actually (part of) an evil colonizing imperialist force.

USPol 

So I deleted the first tweet in the thread, which was by far the most obnoxiously liberal, but I'm wondering if I should delete the whole thing? A whole bunch of liberals have liked and RT'd, and the validation gives me seratonin, but also the whole things is really fucking embarrassing.

USPol 

I made a dumb, liberal tweet/thread at one of my state's Republican congressmen to try to get him to vote for impeachment. Of course he didn't, but now somebody came along and made fun of my dumb liberal tweet and now I feel embarrassed.

Gab, USPol, FediBlock-adjacent 

Okay, so I’ve been informed by several people that Gab has stopped trying to federate and remains a walled garden. My bad. I will delete the original post.

Still worth being aware that fash are trying to move to Gab and Telegram.

@georgespolitzer how're you gonna just not even show off how hot she is? black lipstick all day every day, the hair, that winning smile... iconic

what do you know, not even 24 hours later they name a new country a state sponsor of terrorism to give a new excuse to lock people up for attending rallies against sanctions or for going there or for doing solidarity work.

Show thread

the purpose of expanding the definition of domestic terrorism isn't to crack down on the coup attempt. those guys are facing a minimum of 4 federal charges a piece. no the purpose is to crack down on "providing material aid" which is nebulous enough anyone could get slapped with that charge. even donating to a bail fund of a radical could get it.

this is basically a hitman level. he's just been posting in the bathroom too long, i got my friend jack dorsey to ban him so he could go outside and i can piano wire his ass

TBH it's a real shame Grimes started dating whats-his-face and became a massive union-busting capitalism apologist because her style is *extremely* my jam.

Show thread

If you've watched a TV Series where some dude (it's practically always a dude) has, like, 7 PhDs, that's the colonial fantasy of epistemic mastery in action.

@NightRose oh yeah there's good stuff there but the overall view is... I dunno. the framework seems broken
