is accelerationism when communists drive too fast?
The Ivory Tower Bubble is bullshit but stop telling oppressed people they’re elitist for using knowledge they reclaimed from the Institution that stole from their communities.
Us white leftists need to stop acting like racist shits and centering everything around ourselves. We do this in black spaces and other POC spaces, basically stealing their space for ourselves. Honestly, this shit needs to stop. We need to shut up, sit down, and listen to the people who have more experience then us. We need to center people of color in activism and other spaces and let them take leadership spaces. The revolution must be for the most oppressed and us white radicals stealing space from people of color only will make activism reactionary, not revolutionary.

If you consider yourself a former ally, you probably weren’t a very good one in the first place
I can’t believe that there are fuckwads out there who still thin “un-American” is an insult
Iggy Azalea, don’t lock yourself in your dressing room.
It does not matter if a boundary makes sense to you. It does not matter if it seems inconsequential to you. Boundaries are the prerogative of the person who sets them. You do not know that person’s story, and they are not obligated to justify their boundaries to you. That touch that seems insignificant to you may be uncomfortably intimate for someone else. That interaction that is fine with others may trigger someone’s PTSD. You do not know more about someone than they know about themselves. Trust that they know what they are doing when they set a boundary with you, even if you do not understand why.
When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.
Got banned from my school’s LGBTQIA+ organization because some cis person took offense to me saying cisness is gross.
Let’s talk about that.
!!! Jesus. What the actual fuck :O -___- 0__o :P
Gods above, I hate how cis people are more welcomed then trans folks, especially trans women and AMAB nonbinary folks, in queer spaces. Cisness is gross and needs to go away.
