placed together in a little pdf are all the queer birds i drew during pride
i had fun, mayhap you will too. PEENT
That's me standing in the arcades of the Bavarian parliament building. I didn't smile even though the Pride event there was so much fun!
Signal is a decent messaging app for secretly talking with friends about where/when/how to do cool crimes. Like posting the address of an abandoned house you want to graffiti.
It has flaws. Nothing is perfect. But it's end to end encrypted and you can set messages to self destruct. Better than planning crimes on here.
Gentle reminder; don't brag about your cool crimes (like doing graffiti) on here. It's not a secure place. That's how people get caught. In general, it's important to learn to be happy being a secret bad ass.
If you need help doing cool crimes, only tell one or two people you'd trust with your life. Make sure they won't tell anyone, even if they get arrested. The Weather Underground and the people who exposed CoIntelPro got away with it because they all kept quiet.
Putting good things out into the world doesn't make a difference to whether or not you get good things in return, but I like to think that the more you help people, the more other people are inspired to do the same in their own ways, which feels like a good way to work towards a culture that can support everyone in the ways they need to be supported
Piracy is both the only genuine attempt at digital media preservation and the only check on the power of IP laws, it's not only justified it's necessary
@Byte@kolektiva.social The irony is that they are the existential threat to themselves. If they just left us alone, we'd all be fine.
But logic and reason aren't a part of a bigot's makeup. That's what makes them bigots. The choice to believe in a reality that is completely made up.
@Are0h as long as they’re going to make themselves an existential threat to us, we might as well be prepared to do the same to them. It’s not unfair to react with violence when the reason they’re choosing violence is hatred and the reason we’re choosing violence is self defense.
Similar arguments to be made against oil companies and capitalism in general
I think the thing that gets me the most about bigotry is the hubris of bigots.
They feel that despite the reality of an incalculable amount of ways a person can express their identities and exist in the world, bigots believe they've found the RIGHT WAY.
And because they have found the RIGHT WAY, we as whole ass thinking feeling human beings should be subject to their violence and constant antagonization because we disagree with their arrogant and myopic take on humanity.
Human identity is a varied and complex thing. In this month of Pride, I feel no matter how we identify, there is space for us to engage this in a way that illuminates not only ourselves but the communities we choose.
Bigots will fabricate reasons on the spot that do not make a lick of sense and become violently angry when we dismiss their nonsense as such.
Their aggressive refusal of reality for an entirely made-up one gets me every single time.
If you are in the EU and have not yet heard of this vote. There is a European's citizens Initiative for a Universal Basic Income. This is an EU binding vote. https://eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/#/screen/home . There is only 5 days left and over 700,000 votes still needed. Please vote.
music about magic, possibly the best analogy I've ever come up with
Let's assume that there are a set of hard, strictly-enforced laws that govern the natural world. Physics, thermodynamics, and so on.
What we call "Magic" is simply the ability to bend these laws to better suit your needs.
And the particularly skilled can even write their own exceptions altogether.
