how do you think gender will be abolished(presuming we agree that gender abolition will or can happen)?


hard to tell as someone embedded within gender, but i think it would be a world where people lived their lives without their behavior or bodies or the histories of those behaviors or bodies being seen as having a bearing on each other or on their relations to others in an organized or total way. a world where anyone can slip into and out of anything like warm and comfortable clothing. i don’t see it as possible without communism or communism as possible without it.

if you’re asking how that will happen, a destruction of structures of gendering and sexing by a women’s vanguard. a spiritual destruction to the greatest extent possible but also a literal physical destruction of literal edifices. the gentle death of the western nuclear family and marriage, of heterosexuality. in the immediate term, i think we could do worse than an end to workplace discipline, an end to prisons, an end to legal sanction of marriage, an end to laws and social norms tying mothers to children and women’s lives to motherhood, and an end to recognition or documentation of ‘biological sex’

Were you ever actually even dating Liz?

Will everyone, you ever meet or love,
be just relationship based on a false presumption?
Despite everyone, you ever meet or love,
in the end, will you be all alone?
As the disease spreads slowly through your body,
pumped by your heart to the tips of your arms and your legs,
your greatest fear was that your mind wouldn’t last,
your coherency and alertness would be the first things to fade,
as your hair thinned, as the weight fell off, as your teeth blackened,
as the lesions spotted your skin,
as you fell to your knees in the center of the stage,
as you offered witness to mortality in exchange for the ticket price,
as the lights blended into the continuing noise,
as all hope was finally lost.
Adrenaline carried one last thought to fruition.
Let this be the end.
Let this be the last song.
Let this be the end.
Let all be forgiven.

a guy smashed into the back of my car on the way to work today and my first thought after i made sure my car was still drivable was “how can i use this an excuse for my paper being so late?”

ask someone from work who’s in school at UT or St. Ed’s to let you use their library/database access. way more articles and all accessible online through PDFs.

yeah i have my roommate’s UT access, but a ton of useful things ive found, including full-text pdfs of the specific books i’ve been using up to now, are only available through the uni that published them, or in one case just not available through UT’s access, which has me fuming about the outrageous bullshittery of academia instead of focusing on what i actually can find/do. 

im rly making it a lot harder than it has to be bc i got overwhelmed by having to do everything again. i just need to chill out, stop complaining, and get it done.

How are you affording to go to Evergreen?

in the 80s my grandpa (and later my parents) started buying credit hours from a guaranteed tuition fund which allowed you to pay then-current tuition rates (which were staggeringly cheaper than today’s rates) for public university hours in the future. the fund also allows you to “cash in” those hours at current rates to help with things like books and housing as long as you maintain ‘good standing’ and at least half-time student status. i’ve been able to stretch the hours super far by paying in-district community college rates up to now, which cash out at like 1/6 university rates. i’m a very lucky person. 

(full-disclosure: i don’t want to pretend i don’t come from a super privileged place, even if i didn’t have the above i would still likely be able to get quite a bit of help with college etc from my parents, but i would have had to stick to the 4 year in-and-out plan and would never have had the option to leave the state or the economic freedom to work for non-profit level wages)

every single person who supports limiting access to online databases of research data, academic/scientific journals, literature, etc to members of certain institutions or people who can buy access, goes straight to the gulags.

they can come out when theyve rebuilt and reorganized the aformentioned databases, which will likely be disrupted when revolutionary forces gut all neoliberal megaversities and turn them into public housing and dining facilities.
