I’m sorry to drag what started out as a mostly ironic twitter disc horse on here, but I’m unironically a bedtime abolitionist. The current diurnal norm is incredibly ableist to people who have circadian rhythm disorders (like me). I shouldn’t be forced to be awake in the middle of my circadian night, I shouldn’t be forced to suffer chronic sleep deprivation. All people should be able to follow their natural sleep rhythms. I want a world in which alarm clocks are obsolete.

I'm not going to promise that I have time to work on anything at the moment, but I would love to work on creating a sort of Facebook replacement.

Even some sort of federated system could be interesting. This very platform shows that it is doable.

"No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave...."

Guess fucking what, if you work for someone else for a wage or a salary, you are a hireling. You are working class. You were never meant to have a voice in this country. Realize that!

You are not a billionaire, and you never will be. It is only when the least among us are completely free that you will be free.

A medicalist myth I want to dispel, since it ofc is coming up.

Non bottom surgery Transwomen and Nonbinary people, do in fact have the chance of reproduction.

They even have fertility treatments for transwomen and Nonbinary people.

Transitioning doesn't garente sterility.

Why we want Reproductive Rights, and not just abortion access.

Transgender People have been forcibly sterilized in this country, in some states, to this day

Neurodivergent people have been sterilized, and this practice sadly exists to this day.

Disabled people have been sterilized, and sadly continues to this day.

A long standing Inmate sterilization program exists to this day.

Indigenous people were sterilized as part of a Colonial Genocide progrom, that ended as recently as 2006.

"Anarchist" groups on facebook are a mixed bag. Some are actually anarchist groups. Others just seem to attract racist and fascists who want to play at anarchy.

Dear fellow leftists, we have to be on guard for those in our midst that through ignorance or malice come across sounding a lot like Nazis and Nazi sympathizers.

Part of that is also going to be stopping and taking a look at what we ourselves might be saying/doing when someone suggests that we are sounding like such.

A good starting point would be to NOT stick your nose in a conversation and say "But what's wrong with that," when someone is calling people out for using Nazi slogans.

Dear leftists.

What tools can you think of that would be useful, or even important, that either aren't already out there, aren't accessible, or the versions that are there are already crawling with cryptofash?

Quick question, probably not simple:

Where would I look/what phrases would I google to find information on leftist infrastructure in the US?

So far my attempts have dug up articles written by far right sources.

Not quite ready to eat the rich, try giving this a read:

aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.1257

I question the credentials of the journal that let this tripe get published.

The Birmingham Free Store has lost most of its funding and is looking for help, in the form of monetary and material support, as well as connections to sources of funding or supplies that match their values. Please contact them if you have any information that might help, and spread the word

Here's the call for solidarity posted to @igd_news : itsgoingdown.org/call-for-soli

Without going into specifics: Tsun Tzu did have comments on how to deal with fucked up leaders.

People keep using the bible to say to have compassion for Trump.

The bible talks in repeatedly about dealing with political leaders who are tyrannical or fuck up this badly.

When dealing with this sort of situation, the scriptural response, for those who believe in the bible, is G*d flat up telling the people "You want to handle this one yourself, or want me to take care of it?"

"Turn the other cheek" does not apply to leaders who fuck up this bad.

Strangely the most recent announcement is the result of an ultra-rare example of ideological consistency.

What is the common usage for hashtags on this platform? Is it similar to Twitter?
