May 1st: General Strike, Gender Strike
(click-through for the pdf!)

A very minor contribution to the ongoing General Strike propaganda, with thanks to the Institute For Experimental Freedom (politicsisnotabanana.com) for the poster template (and apologies that we lack Hass Grotesk!).  In any case, we hope that May Day will allow us to boldly experiment with ways of bringing the domination of capital and the tyranny of gender to a grinding halt.

forever against the ideology of victimization//forever toward the destructive nothing

general strike is gender strike

pass it on

I need a good lesson in cutting shitty, destructive people out of my life.

otherxcore:

Once I got home last night, all I did was watch “Leave it on the Floor,” eat pizza and ice cream, send texts that got ignored, and cry. Needless to say, it wasn’t cool or fun, and I just finished crying again. (I’m gonna get really whiny, so if that bothers you, stop now.)

I miss my mom and I hate internet ex-gf for never failing to make me feel like shit, no matter what the situation. You’d think it’d be easy to get her out of my life, considering she lives in Michigan, but nope. I’ve tried a dozen times, but as long as I have the same phone number (I’m not changing it unless I’m forced to, because it’s the only one I’ve ever had and I don’t feel like fixing forms or contacting people about a change), she’s going to pester me. And I really don’t mind talking. I like it, because I really don’t have anyone to hang out with unless there’s a show I can make it to, but she never has time to really talk to me. If I want to kill myself (I don’t think I’m capable of it, but sometimes I think it’d be nice), I’m expected to just suck it up and deal because she’s got work in the morning. When she tried to kill herself multiple times when I was in high school, I was expected to be up all god damn night, even though I had to be up for school at 6 AM. If I’m confused about who or what I like, I’m a shitty person. If she’s confused, I’m supposed to talk it out with her.

I’m tired of being used and getting nothing in return. I’ve wasted a lot of time and emotional energy on her and she’s never done it for me. I understand the time difference, I understand that she works. She doesn’t understand that I have a family and 16 units of English and have to drive half an hour to get anywhere, which takes time. I don’t think she even understands that I’m a human being.

So basically, this is just me whining on the internet, like I’ve been doing since I was 12 or so. I don’t think it’s as acceptable now as it was when I was on Vampire Freaks in black and red makeup, but whatever. I hate humanity.

ALSO: I’m PMSing hard right now and my hormones are insane. (This is not an apology.)

I can relate to this in a lot of ways, and I’m sorry you are feeling so shitty. More coming in an email, but one thing is: block her on your phone and on your email. What would you tell a friend who was being physically used and abused? I think it’s one of those things where we kind of feel like, I will do it when I am emotionally ready to deal with it but actually just doing it is what gives you the space to emotionally deal with it, if you know what I mean? I don’t want to be all “And then you will make lots of new friends!” because definitely hasn’t been my experience, I barely have any friends, but even that is better than the shitty ones. It really is.

fightwinconquer: Beyoncé’s “Why Don’t You Love Me” Why…



fightwinconquer:

Beyoncé’s “Why Don’t You Love Me”

Why don’t you spark me like you used to do?
Say sweet nothings like you used to coo
Somebody’s changed, so let me give you a clue
Why don’t you love me like you used to do?

Why don’t you love me like you used to do?
Why don’t you love me like you used to do?
