I smell white people.
So, quite soon, I'll be stuck in a car with some close comrades, being funded by some sugar daddy money (everybody get's there's right), and headed out to the Seattle Anarchist Bookfair. I'll be honest, all of the workshops look pretty lame. Actually, the Anarchists Against the Wall one seems interesting, but the others don't see to be that interesting to me. There seems to be a couple on accountability within anarchism. Anarchism being filled with sketchy anarchist men has been something that's been on my mind for a while. Why does our movement seem to attract a load of dudes who just want to prey on women? Why do these people stay in anarchism? Apparently the whole revolutionary thing isn't working for a lot of these people, but they don't have anywhere else to go...So sad. Sucks you have a felony and your parents have already cut you off from going to Stanford, but enjoy living the rest of your life canvassing for Greenpeace while knowing that you're a complete piece of shit. (That was directed at a fictional person, but if you WERE offended hella siiiiccc...) I ask women if they believe in accountability processes and they just kind of shrug. Fuck, I don't know what the solution is, and if I give anything that's in a kind of "Just beat the shit out of them" vein I risk looking like a total manarchist and I really don't have any ideas past that. Hmm...maybe I will go to these workshops and see if they have any good ideas. Just the thought of having to sit through a bunch of activisty stuff sounds about as interesting as watching grass grow. Or about as fun as hanging out in scenes filled with dipshits and sexual fuckups.
Also, if you're lucky enough to have nice parents, or insane enough to rack up a lifetime of dept, or smart enough to get a scholarship, at all the UC schools there is going to be massive walkouts on Thursday of this week. This social strike appears to have big possibilities, as staff, professors, and students are all walking out on strike. Good luck all you future social managers. Abolish yourselves before we do.
