    Seeking ride out of florida

    Florida is definitely a hard place to hitchhike out of, it's harder to get a ride there than anywhere else I've ever been. If a craigslist ride or bus ticket will get you to Mobile or New Orleans, hitchhiking gets easier there in my experience. Standing at the beginning of onramps to the...

    If you want me to support/fight Fascism,Communism,Socialism,Capitalism,Democracy,Anarchism ect. please give me a short definition of what it is?

    It's a mistake to think that the aim of all mobilization and street organizing is just 'protest'. Different ballgame, calls for different precautions.

    Safe-ish spots or ways to sleep in NYC

    I slept under the boardwalk on coney island this summer the night after mermaid parade, it'd be cold now though. Also I just stayed on a subway all night once in a pinch, me and another guy had the same idea and mostly slept undisturbed, the one worker who saw us was cool about it.

    Completed What if we started banning people from specific threads?

    Yeah sure. Dirt, there were trans people alive before your were born so they definitionally have "older thinking" than you, also you already know it's not 'censorship' for other private citizens to decline to pay for servers to provide you with a platform to indefinitely promote yourself on...

    The Pronouns Thread

    Lupo - I linked to the specific posts like you asked, and being calm while people act like one's basic rights are a fun theoretical debate, is actually really, really inappropriate. Not least because people can stay PERFECTLY DAMN CALM while reinforcing a dominant culture of transphobia, public...

    The Pronouns Thread

    Mods - If I wrote saying that it should be accepted for me to write (generic racial slur) here, would I simply be asked to stop, or would that content be removed? I think the latter has often been done - Can we apply the same standard here, so our most-prominent conversation about trans rights...

    The Pronouns Thread

    Most of what could occupy an "ask trans people" thread has either been answered a million times already, so maybe ask an archivist/librarian/educator/search engine, or is best screened by the asked first asking them self, "Is this any of my business at all?"

    The Pronouns Thread

    So there's a fundamental disagreement here about what the point of sharing this information is. One purpose people can come to the conversation with is to educate people about what it's like to live in a way that's been marginalized by dominant, abusive forms of power, give trans people a chance...

    The Pronouns Thread

    'Cis-gender' = '*same* gender' = person living as the gender they were assigned at birth. Society almost ALWAYS looks at people being cis-gendered as the 'POSITIVE', correct thing. It is the opposite of an othering insult. Anyone is free to reject the term for themselves. In general, it's a good...

    Cornelius Vango disassociating myself from stp

    It's confusing to me that folks are treating the word 'transphobia' as if it's 'name calling / labeling a person' instead of a description of actions - a subjective description that can be disagreed about - but treating it like it's a character attack in itself, kind of misses the point that...

    Entering Canada. What will they actually check for?

    Wait do you have to tell them you're entering on a work visa? Because I recently made my first trip to Quebec and told them I was just going into Canada for the weekend (more or less true) and they asked me a few questions but nothing major, lied and said no arrest records and they didn't...

    Imposter Syndrome and Some Other Complicated Things

    Was I off the topic of the original post, sure, yes. But I was on the topic that you asked me about - I was just responding to what you said.

    To be transparent and maybe save my breath, here's my own reply to the moderator message I just got: Hi - Right now I'm more curious about your guess that this was not really the reason I don't participate here much. There's some other reason you think is the real one that I don't know about...

    Imposter Syndrome and Some Other Complicated Things

    I definitely already have, to the degree that it seemed relevant/productive. And you, of course, don't have to take a shot in the dark - but since you already have, sure, why in fact do I not post here much in your imagination?

    Maybe there is an appreciable difference between "making up lies" and "disagreeing about what actions are transphobic."

    Imposter Syndrome and Some Other Complicated Things

    Hey - I don''t interact here much any more because of the casual sexism as social bonding game but I'm really glad you made it this far, and I can't really know what it's like to be a trans woman etc, but if you ever want to chat feel free to throw me a line

    This is something truly beautiful, thanks. Of course even ""Communist"" cops end up favoring far-right gangs when push comes to shove.... did they use that much force to evict the fascist squat??? Real communism is the work of no state, working people have no nation! Nice little shout-out too...

    How "love" is a illusion

    Anyway. As we all know. If we love someone who's faced a kind of exploitation that we haven't. Then we LISTEN TO THEM, about how common and structurally encouraged it is. And we put EFFORT into demonstrating, with our ACTIONS, that we won't treat them that way, and won't turn a blind eye when...

    How "love" is a illusion

    Lol, I actually know when I'm being read and treated as a fully human being and when I'm not. And when entrenched social structures encourage my treatment as fully-human or not. No one has any reason to have "faith." And as for my interests, well, why on earth would I share anything so precious...

    How "love" is a illusion

    I'm pretty sure that, no matter *what* level of consciousness we're on, our desires and actions are expressions of our DNA, reading and continually modifying/being modified by its ecosystems... I'll take a pass on all the claims of 'seeing through the veils', this-and-that revelation, seeing...
