A blog promoting equality that recognizes current inequalities, run by a poor queer disabled white métis radical left intersectional feminist.
Most news will be from Canada, in particular from the region stolen from the Algonquin peoples.

This blog has kind of fallen to the backburner after a lot of self discovery and dealing with crap I had internalized from people who were richer than me thinking they knew how to be good anti capitalists, that they knew what was better for me despite not actually listening to me. I have come to the conclusion that I need to discover myself more re: this whole thing, and where I identify in anti classism discussions and talks of revolution and so on.

I am thinking that where I stand politically is probably more of an anti kyriarchial stand point. In the past several months I founded radicalgendercoalition which is based off of a number of different political ideologies and focuses, being trans feminism, radical disability politics, anti capitalism, anti classism, anti state, anti colonialism, (and whatever else goes with those things) and a shitload of standpoints on different things within the trans community and feminist discussions. I have been working on a trans 101 zine (more like 30 pg textbook) for a few months as well which covers things such as penopticonism (in as accessible language as possible), how it applies to TWERFs and truscum and who those people are, an incomplete glossary of terms, the asterisk and dialogues surrounding that, statistics related to employment, discrimination and disease, etc. I am hoping to have it released for public use and to be accepting printing donations for it by the end of the year or so. I have the connections for distribution in a lot of different places.

Anyway if you need me I’m mostly posting there as well as on @neonelephantintheroom which is my main blog

The statements “I don’t follow politics” and “I try to stay out of politics” are inherently privileged statements.

You don’t pay attention because you’re safe and not afraid of what might happen to you.

The food you eat or brush you’re using may have been made by a worker earning less than a dollar an hour — not in the developing world, but in the invisible workforce inside America’s prisons. Share this if you oppose prison labor for profit.  Source: http://ow.ly/iwTlY

When I was in prison I worked 3 shifts a day, 5 days a week, starting at 5 AM and ending at 8 PM. I was paid $5.25 a month. Pay for the inmates who facilitate UNICOR workers (by making their food, washing their laundry, etc,) is even lower than the wages cited in the above graphics. The prison industry is also a slave industry, and it isn’t just corporations who benefit. All the furniture you see in federal buildings, post offices, DMVs, etc, where do you think it comes from? Prison labor. I think a lot of people know about states that use prison labor for license plates, but fewer people know that the plaques on doors at city halls, and sometimes the doors themselves, come from prison labor. The incarcerated are a hyper-exploited class unto themselves, and almost no one seems to be helping them to organize.

IT GENUINELY IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT BLACK PEOPLE GET IMPRISONED WAY THE HELL MORE THAN WHITE PEOPLE. THIS IS HOW SLAVERY CARRIED THE FUCK ON.

For-profit prisons are a huge business and this is part of why. 
Also, did you know that it’s in the Constitution that people convicted of crimes can be used as slave labor? That’s another part of the Constitution that needs to be changed. 

If you changed that part of the constitution you’re essentially removing a strong leg of the prison industrial complex
