for the sake of transparency: to protect myself as i am healing i'm making use of filters. i will also be blocking & muting as needed. this is not an attempt to police anyone - your space is yours to do whatever the fuck you want in.
i do not have the capacity for people who: refuse to take accountability, are hostile, derail conversations, stir up drama, or interact just to talk shit about other people .
im just here to learn, grow, love, appreciate, & cultivate healthy relationships
accountability, request, lgbtqia+, sex workers
hey y'all, instead of reaching out to each of you individually, i wanted to request this of you openly. specifically my fellow LGBTQIA+ and my Sex Worker friends: if i am unknowingly interacting with someone who invalidates your existence or disrespects you(r work), please bring it to my attention. i will not knowingly hold space for anyone who looks down on you for who you are or for the work that you do
im melissa: she/they are both fine
30 something, bipoc, pan, and poly
anarchist but only recently radicalized so still learning what 'labels' i identify with
im here to interact with people that fuck with the following thoughts:
sex work is work
(and more along those lines)
i also really love cats and cows - like r e a l l y really
disgusted seeing people who spent the better part of a year screaming 'fuck the government' now content cause a 'less shitty' old white man is in the white house. can't help but imagine how much worse it world be if bernie had made it. how are humans so easily disillusioned? like every person sitting in that position won't be doing the same damage. guess people don't mind oppression and murder as long as it's not them being oppressed and murdered.
tuesday made it out of salem alive, and now he could use some financial support while he takes some time for recovery.

parenting without toxic authority has allowed me to cultivate a beautiful relationship with my kid. they're bad ass, funny, kind, and they never hesitate to tell me when im being an asshole. they also know that ill back them against any goddamn authority figure.
im not a perfect parent by any means, but i wouldn't trade our relationship for anything.
it's important to remember that parental relationships set the tone for what your kid will accept later in life. don't fuck them over🖤
"Hello all, I'm Se'mana Thompson from the Gila River Indian Community. I am a single person currently without my children who are in a youth facility and foster care.
I am in need of funds to move out of my current living situation. I am making the goal $10,000 for now so I can figure out not only a living situation but job situation..."
jfc i find it alarming that people who think talking to cops and feds is a good idea still fucking exist. if you're one of those people please: block me and never interact with me. ever. you're not going to keep us safe with that fucking mentality and i don't wanna fuck with you in any way, shape, or form.
please try to meet people where they are!
when i say memes played a huge role in my radicalization, i mean it. i grew up in entirely conservative/religious environments & from a very young age, was taught that anarchy/communism were bad. i never bothered to learn why/what they were. spent years unaware that beliefs ive always held are those of anarchists/communists/socialists. it wasn't until i saw these ideas in meme form that it all clicked. old me would never have touched a book on theory, js

“Regardless, I’m a casualty of war, of combat, a willing casualty. We must not be daunted by authority, by capital, or by combat,” McCarvill wrote in his 2003 dispatch.
“It has been said that history is written by the winner. My friends, we should have and maintain every intent to write that history.”
