your daily reminder that the sudden elimination of a capitalist state will not address homophobia, racism, ableism, and other implicit biases

even if the revolution was tomorrow, we would still have work to do to get to an actually equitable world

one of the reasons that white anarchists frustrate me is this belief that if you topple the state, the goodness of people will float up and all that pesky racism stuff will melt away.

this is a dangerous belief. the revolution doesn't end at revolt.

hi, this is actually the same scarly crow that used to reside at soc.scarly.pink

i'm going to be lazy now and go back to my original home instance while i continue to plan on how to overthrow the world and bring about a socialist revolution

i'm still alive! just trying to resume functioning in a capitalist society while grappling with continued concussion recovery

"return to full time" is a simple phrase that hides a lot of complexity and health challenges

guys that take the time to review bomb movies with women in them are pretty pathetic

@scarly yup! ESPECIALLY if they're like, the leader of a group/clique.

at this point, i just assume that any cishet guys in my orbit are gonna get canceled within a year or so. and in most cases, yeah it happens.

another day another way for me to earn the "shrill female" badge from my male family members when i smack them for sexism.

@scarly upgrade your family by replacing all humans by mouses 🐁

The real reason the US government wants to study the aurora is because they want to find a way to sell the Earth's plasma for money

i need a new family. mine is objectively terrible.

realizing that your entire social circle had been made up of individuals with various prejudices and unsafe viewpoints is always a jarring but necessary wake-up call

it's hard to make new friends but sometimes it's necessary.

imagine if instead of dumping billions into self-driving cars we invested a little in our public transportation

honestly, my take on the fbi is that anyone that works for or with them is a cop, because they are

i like my simple non-nuanced take. it helps me keep perspective

i know some peeps are talking about technicalities, but do you think that the feds give af when they come after oppressed communities?

there's a lot of history there, and lots of valid reasons for the bad vibes. to ignore it all bc someone is only "affiliated" with a horrifically bad organization seems like a pointless distinction

current happenings notwithstanding, you should really be using something less public than mastodon to discuss sensitive matters.

you never know who is spidering the social graph, even if you aren't literally sending it out to the whole world as it by default does.

@scarly I think kid you was on to something, actually.

The world hasn't immediately gotten over it's prejudices, but data is pretty clear that newer generations are becoming more tolerant, more open to new ideas and experiences, and more easily persuaded by facts and arguments.

Personally, I think it's a question of time and perseverance. Hatred has a hard time thriving in the face of understanding, and understanding grows when we are exposed to new stories.

the first thing that i do when i get a new operating system is to turn everything some shade of purple

if an operating system will not allow this, then it is a travesty and must be deleted

@stolas if you constantly agree with others in your same social sphere, blindly believe what a single person says while attacking those that do not, frequently feel a need to defend behaviors that you wouldn't defend from people outside of your group, and consider a single person to somehow be elevated above others........ then yeah, you might be in a cult of personality.
