anarchist documentary crowdfunding
You may have seen the incredible documentary series titled 'No Gods No Masters' about the history of anarchism from the early 1800s to 1939.
The filmmakers are currently putting together a new part of the series, covering the history of anarchism from 1939 to the modern day, and they are currently looking for funding to help get it made. They have met their initial goal, which means it will be broadcast in France. But they're still trying to meet their stretch goal, so that they can broadcast the new films internationally.

Saying "any pronouns are fine!" doesn't make you a good ally
Okay so I want to preface this by saying these are general trends, and there's a whole lot of exceptions.
A thing I notice really commonly though is that when spaces where people are asked to give their pronouns, quite often people I perceive as cis -- and it's usually people I perceive as guys -- will make a big point of saying "any pronouns for me are fine!"
This doesn't actually help. I know the thought process is to show that you're cool and hip to a world that doesn't have as much in the way of gender expectations, but. Really. I promise. Having preferred pronouns is fine. Saying "anything works!" smacks of performative allyship and, in practice, means we have to guess for what pronoun you're actually listening for -- which defeats the entire point of people giving pronouns.
If your assumed gender identity has always fit comfortably, it's easy to feel like gender isn't a big deal. It's easy to think "yeah whatever is fine, I'm cool with things." This is especially true if you know that assigned masculinity is a prison. I can say in confidence, though, that if you've lived a life where people continually made the wrong assumption, pronouns can become a very big deal.
So, really, I promise, it's fine to say "I use he/him pronouns".
Straight ladies, don’t fuck w dudes who
-disrespect you(You’re dignity is priceless and non negotiable)
-substitute telling you how they’re feeling with accusations.
-keep interrupting you.
-push your boundaries instead of trying to understand why you have them.
-disrespect your interests & hobbies.
-does little to no house work or cooking and gives little to no acknowledgement of you picking up their slack.
-leaves you to ‘cool down’ but demand immediate consoling after a bad work day.
@interneteh wait what DO they eat?
You don't have to change your name just because people think it's for a specific gender. If you like the sound of your name, there is no need to change it just because of an arbitrary gender label people put on your name. Do whatever makes you most comfortable.
