Getting my a’raab and simple unjoined letters down now 😌

cishet men 

@Critoday i mean i always give them more credit than they deserve lmao, i’m willing to give them so many passes but they usually want to make Zero Effort to change and be a decent human being and heteronormativity is almost a cult here lmao so that makes it worse

cishet men 

This shit FEELS unhealthy like i keep saying i won’t get involved w ch men but every time i just have to Learn again to learn it 🤧

@mostardently Look at Black Communities around the world how that can be done, what attitude you can assume/have!
Black People have known this for a long time.

"The best tool for radicalization is helping people meet their material needs, shouting 'Read Theory' at everyone can be very counter productive. Theory is great, but it won't fill an empty stomach."

anglos think a language having no gendered pronouns is some kind of a mind-blowing revelation instead of the standard for the vast majority of languages

@nurashimi Noooooo i envy you so much 😩 feels like i live in Apolitical Central

Glottal sounds/letters are the hardest for me to get right but otherwise i’m thriving

@nurashimi I literally morph into the 😰 emoji as i frantically try to infodump to them all about how they’ve just internalized capitalist/anticommunist rhetoric

Also y’all i’m making such good progress on reading the persoarabic script i’m so proud of myself. My handwriting is still atrocious but i’m learning to do the language some justice 😎

:P at this point i think nearly everything i have to say is a critique of how people here want to individualize and provide solutions at the level of the individual to systemic structures of oppression so i’m at whatever point in my political journey this is

@theprxfessional also pps: it IS so weird when people make the connection between “self preservation” and “violence”/“greed” instead of like, idk, righteous anger, or oppressed people taking back what is rightfully theirs. Again it’s about semantics i guess ! It’s just again about deliberate misinterpretation, like something along the likes of ~survival of the fittest, like you can either sit here and argue with this person all day or yk just say cool n move on

it's wild how people still believe that as a thirty one year old adult i'm going to get "more conservative" as if it's going to be like a simple switch whereon my thirty fifth i'll wake up and go "you know what actually fuck equality, let's oppress some people"

Plus i’m actually a poor debater i tend to get distracted trying to correct people on e v e r ything but it’s a skill i’m working on gotta radicalize more peers so listening to y’all say your piece really helps 😎🤓

@mostardently I've been seeing the same thing. I think it comes from neolib propaganda and how it's designed to make us feel like there's no way out by telling us "we're making a lot of progress, we're fine as a species. You just feel alienated and helpless because its in our nature to be egotistical and destructive." And folks believe it because its all they can see: a lot of cool commodities and very evil people. Such propaganda claims that the current state of the world is the final phase of political evolution and doesn't allow for the imagination we had back in the day.

Another thing is semantics. If you go into the whole "human nature" thing its a philosophical debate that's been going on for years. Capitalism will use the phallacy "humans are egotistical because we always act in self preservation", and any example of altruism is thus linked back to self preservation and then egoism. Notice how the debate just hits a dead end and doesn't allow for further discussion. That's the neoliberal way of arguing. However I think its just absurd to assume that self preservation equals egoism, because all animals act in self preservation and if every being on earth is "egotistical" then no one is! If we didn't act in self preservation we'd succumb yo extinction really easily. Plus, egotistical, greedy beings have long had a history of being banished from their original communities. Lol.
