dismantle every single person and institution that has ever told the families and communities of murdered black children to calm down and behave.

im tired of things costing money

can people stop reblogging the photo of Mike Brown’s body? His family has asked people NOT to share the photo and it’s disrespectful if you continue to share the photo!

i’m really, deeply sad about the state of the states and the world today, more so than other days. so i’m listening to a 90’s valentine’s day mix on spotify

a+

i’ve been made aware that i reblogged a post yesterday (the one below this one) from two folks who identify as radfems and have a history of inciting violence against trans people, particularly trans women in their “feminist” critiques. 

i apologize for the harm i may have caused for doing so and for being unaware of who i was sharing content from. if anyone would like to talk about it please send me a message. i apologize again.  

i support the authentic expression of sister survivors. i listen to sister survivors’ silence or speaking with a whole heart. long may we live.

…because we have not challenged heteropatriarchy, we have deeply internalized the notion that social hierarchy is natural and inevitable, thus undermining our ability to create movements for social change that do not replicate the structures of domination that we seek to eradicate. Whether it is the neocolonial middle managers of the non-profit industrial complex or the revolutionary vanguard elite, the assumption is that patriarchs of any gender are required to manage and police the revolutionary family.

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water can wear away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad (via ethiopienne)

If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.

But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.

So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.
