It may be something of significance for me though as I am looking to seek mental health care. For me I've personally not has much had experience with racism but more gender-based prejudice (even though I present AMAB but I, or at least others wouldn't think I could be cisgender). While I am looking to deal with mental health issues unrelated to gender, some sensitivity to my gender issues may still be appreciated.

My diaspora community though would likely not be as sympathetic with gender issues so I would require a removed apparatus of care.

I don’t think there’s any motion in the anarchist left to leave those folks without /any/ support, but to focus community care over a professional and removed apparatus of care. I’m not well-read on theoretical or in-practice models on that front, though, and would generally defer to people on the left with experience in those sectors, whether professionally or as patients.

if you read the article there is only a small mention of health effects - but if you want to talk about the health effects there was this piece in the Scientific American a couple of years back:

there is also this appeal signed by 253 EMF (Electromagnetic Field) scientists from 44 countries:

Excerpt from the appeal for the TL;DR brigade:

“Wireless communication technologies are rapidly becoming an integral part of every economic sector. But there is a rapidly growing body of scientific evidence of harm to people, plants, animals, and microbes caused by exposure to these technologies.

It is our opinion that adverse health consequences of chronic and involuntary exposure of people to non-ionizing electromagnetic field sources are being ignored by national and international health organizations despite our repeated inquiries as well as inquiries made by many other concerned scientists, medical doctors and advocates.

This constitutes a clear violation of human rights, as defined by the United Nations:

“Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education.”

I'm no scientist so I have no idea when it comes to complicated scientific research and conclusions of said research so I'm not going to comment on that aspect other than present what they are saying - I am not qualified enough to make an informed opinion regarding their concerns.

however, I will comment on what I do know about - I think you are wrong that "many anarchists seem to have bought into the idea that there is some sort of negative health effect"...the main concerns from all of the anarchist texts I have read regarding 5G are the increased surveillance capabilities that will be enabled by 5G networks and the military applications / use of 5G - however, if you read the article you would already know that this is what the main points of it were.

I'm really curious too, many anarchists seem to have bought into the idea that there is some sort of negative health effect. Ive read a little bit about it (also because I was talking to someone who was wary of microwaves) but as far as I can tell its really no issue. Scientists have been studying it since the 90s. Holding a phone up to your ear probably gives more exposure than you get from the tower

Reply to so..conoclast: Because even this supposedly anarchist board is currently on the wrong side of the "war". If it were populated by beings considerable as "humans", then concepts like the need for "moderators" or that there was any kind of "offensive language" would not be entertained.

This article misses the point. Black Lives Matter became enemies of the entire human race as soon as they shifted their focus from police brutality to CENSORSHIP. Intruding into people's private communications, demanding - and, horrifingly, getting - both censorship of film and television, and apologies for "offences" (e.g David Walliams) which are only offences in the minds of the insane delusional and power-hungry (i.e amoral filth, that is). To claim a corporate identity (be it BLM or Wal-Mart or the Senate or the Bloods or name-any-religion - the above are all alike, they're all destructive nonhumans) is itself an act of war against the rest of the human race - a claim of elite status, exceptionalism, entitlement.

Black_Fox has just advocated censorship. WARCRIME. Black_Fox is also claiming entitlement to "moderate" a piece of electronic air which is not his/her property, nor any specific person's. WARCRIME. To any sane people who read this - You can't reason with someone incapable of logical thought. When such a "being" (identifiable by belief in censorship and such related abusive concepts as the "problematic word") reveals itself, it is every sane person's duty to hunt it down and destroy it.
