phone zaps!

i support them, in my opinion it’s direct because you’re asking the actual person in power to stop or change something whereas government is a bit more complicated and always indirect. if me and a bunch of other people constantly call HR to get a nazi fired, that’s much different then asking John Smith congressperson to work with 400 other folks to change a policy.

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.
