I'm surprised the negative response I was thinking it's not the greatest security culture. Not because we should be keeping the stores to ourselves- I can find the stores easy to shoplift in my area just because I already have checked alot of them out, in my hometown I know what stores to target too. There are already guides written on specific stores in Zines. There's probably a very small chance of it getting traced back to you but for the same reasons against posting hauls I'm careful about it. People get mad when they hear about things like this(that this site exist to help people shoplift) so I'm careful. It's probably fine if it's Walmart or a store most cities have though. But trolls etc could use the info to find out where you live. Also you can wipe your old posts every so often on this site to keep yourself safe.

don't contact the police if they're not involved it means that they can't do anything about it or they haven't been called. Stores can make civil demands that have nothing to do with the police... I would suggest NEVER call the police ever. If they try to talk to you do not talk to them because if they're talking to you, it means they are trying to get information from you to use against you. Just tell them you want to talk to your lawyer. do not even chat with them.

Someone suggested lifting some magnets from Home Depot , and putting them in a stack to get the right amount of power. (I ordered a golf magnet instead but it sounded like a good idea). The wiki suggested 15000gs for magnet strength

Try to introduce them through other ways than intellectual or theory material. through actions because no one wants to feel like they are hanging out with friends and it turned into a lecture. (Not saying you're doing this ) . What radicalized me was not theory but seeing anarchy in action and being welcomed into a supportive community where people share skills , help eachother , I saw the mutual aid in action.

Or media that's more entertaining or visual and accessible like radical comic books. Submmedia documentary, etc. Radical punk or hiphop music. Invite them to volunteer at food not bombs.

Go to a self defense class with them, there is a queer self defense club where I live.

You told people to wear Muslim women's clothes to shoplift... Yes Muslim women are women. I explained to you why that's islamaphobic. Muslim women are already targets of violence they don't need you to make it worse for them by further stigmatizing the Niqab. Also , youre wrong, people who are minorities are less likely to shoplift because they are already targets of the police.

Here are the terms of service: https://raddle.me/wiki/terms_of_service Please read it.

This is a warning. Islamaphobia or sexism will not be tolerated and promoting wearing a burqa in order to pretend to be a Muslim woman you will be banned because the prepetuates the rhetoric of conservatives and the right wing that burqas and other face coverings are dangerous because they could be worn by men committing crime which has never happened. This puts Muslim women at risk for more violence. In reality they are already targeted and watched as if they are criminals. Telling people to pretend to be a woman also promotes transphobia with the transphobic rhetoric that trans women are not women and pretending to be women, and that by pretending to be women they could commit crimes

I'm sure not all black people care about white people wearing dreads , but that doesn't silence the voice of so many other black people who have told us why white people wearing dreads is not okay and how it effects them.

Even if one black person says it's ok to wear dreads it doesn't make it okay, many others have voiced how it effects them and it's important we listen to that .

But many black people and me((nonblack) and tons of others , know that context of the world we are living out in , white people wearing dreads is not okay. emotional labour shouldn't be on black people all the time, black people have bigger problems and it should be up to non-blacks to tell eachother to stop wearing dreads. Why? Here's why :

  • racist beauty standards : mainstream beauty industry praises white women with black features (example Kylie Jenner wearing box braids and plumping her lips) but shamed black women for having those same features( many black people aren't allowed to wear dreads at work or school) Kylie Jenner profits millions for those same features and copying black people's style.
  • the history of dreads , it has a cultural and spiritual meaning white people didn't grow up with
  • white people's hair is different and dreads can't be cleaned properly since it's not the right texture of hair .
  • it represents history of black resilience and resistance

Alot of white people claim their dreads just formed because they didn't brush their hair , and they want to be primitive or live off the land which I support , but even primitive ancestors of non blacks brushed their hair for cleanliness. In those days cleanliness was a matter of life or death and people brushed their hair because if you don't it causes dirt and mold to get matted in your hair and an infection could kill you.

@u/Throwaway46578 Ableism will not be tolerated in this forum. Promote faking a disability and you will be banned. People who actually have a disability don't benefit from it and it's not okay to suggest they do. People with disabilities face just as great a risk if not more of being arrested.
