Pinned toot

I've said ill-informed, crappy, and short-sighted things in the past. I'd like to think I've grown, but man, I dislike that some of it will be forever out there, without any comment of how sorry I am for those words and how I've personally grown and evolved.

People have no way of knowing, if they don't know me, that those words don't represent my views now.

I guess that's just the price I pay for them.

Choose your words carefully. You're eternally responsible for them.

Standing offer for mutual aid (transportation), Northeastern Oklahoma 

If you need a ride, someone to talk to, someone to visit, a hug, or anything like that, feel free to ask. I can't promise I can accommodate you. If you live anywhere in Northeastern Oklahoma I can probably help you. I live in Tulsa, but I'm not afraid of a little distance so long as it's not like... a weekly thing or something.

All I ask is if you need a ride that you pitch in a few bucks for the gas. Not asking for a lot, just proportional to distance. Like if I gotta get you from Sallisaw or Heartshorne I'm obviously going to need like $5-10 in gas. But if it's just across Tulsa or something a buck or two will do.

Rules about boosting my posts:

If it ain't followers-only, it's always okay to boost!!!

If you figure out how to boost something followers-only, boost that too, although I'm probably gonna block you after I finish laughing.

Supporting trans men/mascs and their right to have a platform not filled with (intentional or not) transphobia about their existence is a hill I'm willing to die on.

politics, half shitpost 

Accelerationists are the kind of people who pour 1000 gallons of gasoline on a house fire in a near condemned house with your kid and your pet inside, and tell you "don't worry about your burned down house, it's a piece of shit, we'll use the ashes to build you a new house, new child, and new cat too."

re: US politics, activism/leftism 

FWIW my grudge is not against anarchists.. I'm somewhere on the edge between one and not, one day I hope society can solve its problems without a government, but so much of society is corrupted I doubt anything like that would be achievable right now, or at least anything that has a chance of lasting any significant period of time.

My grudge is against anarchists whose goal is to simply fuck shit up and don't really give a shit about improving the world around them, tankies, fake anarchists who are just tankies with a circle A on their jacket, and accelerationists. These people have been holding leftism back for too long.

US politics, activism/leftism 

None of this is meant to make you lose hope, this is just an unfortunate sad reality of the current state of leftism in America. It's pathetic. It's almost driven me out of activism because I just don't have the ability to combat the 7 c's and finding dependable collaborators is hard.

This is one reason Capitalism continues to exist, and will likely continue to exist for some time to come.

US politics, activism/leftism 

None of this is new. In fact, pretty much any activist against poverty of any kind (if you don't care about poverty why the fuck are you in leftism?) will come up against this.

There's a reason cadres/comrades is on the list. Many marxists and accelerationist anarchists with something to prove have ruined many organisations. They have a reputation of turning aid orgs into a useless club that is exceedingly inefficient at helping others, or does actively harmful things to prove their points.

This isn't to say that anarchists are totally useless or can't be valuable allies, but accelerationists in my experience are not dependable, and have a habit of infecting everything they touch. And they're everywhere in leftism, you basically can't avoid it.

US politics, activism/leftism 

(This is an American centric POV, Europe may be different)

Anyone who thinks real-life anarchist/leftist groups are any different from the online ones...

For starters, there aren't many. Cops, poverty pimps, and political machines have been exceedingly efficient at destroying leftist groups in the real world. The people who stand to lose if society gains.

The few that manage to go anywhere wind up with one of three fates.

1) They get taken over by Marxists, Maoists, Stalinists, Juche apologists, and other authcom types. They do not tolerate dissent. Once this happens, the organisation is useless.

2) Much of the group evolves into the same old accelerationist, elitist assholes you see online. They tolerate no dissent, their way or the highway. Once this happens, the organisation is useless, and outright harmful.

3) They fade away or suddenly collapse into dust.

Kind of a shame one of the only explicitly trans friendly hair removal places I found around here (and also affordable) is a one-woman mostly-retired operation and not taking new patients.

opinion-having about social media leftism 

my relationship with other 'leftists' has become way less frustrating since i stopped using reddit and discord for anything other than gardening.
i used online leftist communities to feel less alone, but the tendency always seems to drift towards doomer/acceleration mindsets, and incredible amounts of hostility. whoever is the most acerbic and radical wins the subreddit for the day, and whoever's the loudest takes control of the discord server.
