Solidarity

from Nudism as an Illegalism

What happened at Wi Spa was part of a larger story as soon as that went viral. It was, in fact, for at least a brief moment, The Story for both the “gender-critical” and anti-fascist commentariats, in the United States at least. This is what led to the rallies, which I am sure would have had various negative effects if left unopposed (difficulty for staff just working a job at Wi Spa, difficulty for many customers but certainly customers who are trans or might look trans, a sense of victory for the anti-trans side and/or their buddies the Nazis and the “Western chauvinists”), and so then there was also counteraction (widely framed as “antifa”), with all of its inherent risk for the side that, on other days of the week and/or with every breath, also happens to oppose the police, the colonial state, capitalism (of all kinds), the American flag, etc.

How a Trans Anarchist Homestead Defended Itself From Far-Right Attacks

In rural Colorado, the Tenacious Unicorn Ranch is building a trans-anarchist homestead and autonomous infrastructure while experimenting in permaculture and raising alpacas. On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we discuss the project with three people from the ranch, talk about the release of the upcoming documentary film, Tenacious, and how people living on the ranch mobilized over the past year against threats from the far-Right.

Archaeologists for Trans Liberation

from Black Trowel Collective

The Black Trowel Collective strives for the shared liberation of all human beings. We stand against those who weaponize their platforms and privilege to attack trans people. It is the position of the Black Trowel Collective that an archaeological understanding of the past is incompatible with transphobia and so-called ‘gender critical’ or trans-exclusionary radical feminism. There is overwhelming evidence from past societies that our current ways of understanding sex and gender are fleeting and contingent. Neither sex nor gender are fixed in aspect or immutable over time and between cultures. As anarchists, we are impelled to mobilize this knowledge into action and we urge the actions that follow.

Equality and freedom are not to be debated!

International anarchist statement on the 52nd anniversary of the Stonewall-Riots

Pride marches as they now exist in many cities around the world every June, commemorate the Stonewall riots and serve to defend the rights of all people who do not fit into the narrow confines of cis-heterosexuality that the reactionaries would like to impose as a universal norm. Unfortunately, we also commemorate this year the 5th anniversary of the Orlando attack, a mass homophobic, transphobic and racist shooting that took the lives of 49 people and left 59 injured in the United States. The fight is far from being over, as the violence against queer people increases in many countries. Fighting against queerphobia is fighting against mass violence. It is a necessity!

The Fight for Partial Freedom in Vietnam

Celebration at the iSee LGBT event

from Mèo Mun's blog

Western leftists, communists, and anarchists alike routinely call for “unity” with the authoritarian oppressors in their favourite “socialist” states. They value a cheap, doom to end in failure unity with the statists, the genocide deniers, the red fascists, more than the well-being and liberation of marginalised groups.

Female Keep Separate

From North Shore Counter-Info

Prisons, Gender, and the Violence of Inclusion

When finally the cell door closes, when the jangling keys recede, you’ve arrived as far as you’re going that day. Then you can exhale alone with your mattress and be in your own body again, your body no longer a problem to be solved or a question to be answered. Just your own familiar weight under the blanket, where you can just shake and shake and try to sleep and get ready for whatever happens next.
