last paragraph is real strong. i’ve never given much weight to the idea of “lifestylism.” maybe that’s because my first introduction to anarchism was crimethinc many years ago. either way when i first heard of “lifestylism” it just seemed like foolish in/out group politics i was used to seeing in punk. bookchin essentially called everyone posers as he left anarchism.

not down with sectarianism or rather, down with sectarianism.

i’d also add specifically that all these violent attacks are from white dudes. the US doesn’t want to deal with its racism problem and anything short of abolishment of the US state couldn’t fully deal with it in an institutional sense. america also doesn’t want to deal with its hyper masculine and sexist culture which is a big part of it.

I’ve seen Argentinians also use “e” instead of “x” which sounds more natural in my opinion.

It should be noted x/e are limited fixes that I’ve only seen on nouns. I personally have yet so see gender neutral pronouns though I don’t doubt they exist.

i’m fine with people believing whatever they want, it’s when you start being bigoted or otherwise oppressing others is when i take issue with religion. i guess i’m even fine with the act of getting together in a place and worshipping but all other parts or organized religion seems gross. i wish religious people would become wholly uninterested in spreading their gospel.

been thinking about this a lot lately, like how much news/current events i can handle before it starts to take a toll on my mental well being. i don't want to stick my head in the sand, but i don't wanted to be inundated with the same shit all day. i've been trying to find more ways to put my anarchism into practice so i assume once i figure that out it'll all feel more.. stable -- not sure the right word here, in my mind.
