Reply to comment by ghost in Is Raddle an affinity group? by Majrelende

I don't bite it. This is the same argument when someone say that anticiv is ableist

Definitely plenty of mischiefs that can be done online.

This is my opinion only, I think an affinity group is something more intimate than the average direct action group. For me an affinity group should be able to replace a family dynamics if possible, maybe this is Avery particular interpretation.

My only point to ghost comment was to dismiss internet as the only enabler of disabled or off grid people.

And about Raddle being an affinity group Im sure that it isn't.

I actually agree with this interpretation of affinity group. Affinity implies a close relationship. Which is the whole reason they are hard to infiltrate. Anything online is just a group.

If your anticiv excludes the needs of disabled people, then it is, in fact, ableist.

Do you think burning down the only hospital in town (without killing or hurting any patients) is ableist?
