it's really just stuff. in the tradition of stuff.
Don’t ever ever ever EVER go to SubRosa’s Open Mic Night on the Thursdays that they reserve the space for women, trans, and queer people (usually 3rd Thusdays.) SubRosa is super duper not interested in making this space safe at all. They only allocate one staff person for these nights. Fucking piece of shit racist assholes will shout disgusting violent things about Nicki Minaj. And walking trashbags show up and talk about how much they hate women for putting them in the “friend zone.” I emailed SubRosa over a week ago with my complaint about how very unsafe and straight up hostile their space is. I asked how come there are always like 3 staffers at punk shows but only 1 at Open Mic Night for Women, Trans, and Queer people (which, yeah, I already know the answer to that but I want to hear it from someone who works there.) They haven’t gotten back to me, so I can only assume that no one there gives a shit about making SubRosa a safe place for anyone who isn’t a straight white dude.
This is why I can’ fuck around with anarchist bros anymore. Your space isn’t radical just because there’s a free library. That free library doesn’t mean shit for all if there’s a wall of oppressive buttholes degrading women standing around it. SuRosa is just one more venue on my long list of venues that I won’t go to anymore because it’s not safe for me to be there. And judging by their total lack of response to my complaint, it doesn’t appear that they’re interested in making queer/trans/women feel safe in anarchist spaces.

This conversation is about how femme nonbinary people are often not considered “really” nonbinary because of patriarchal standards that default to masculine identities as the standard for androgyny. Femme nonbinary people deserve space to talk about this kind of shit without derailment. Femmes matter!
I don’t think we take enough time to appreciate the periods in our life when our noses aren’t runny. Is your nose runny right now? No? Think about that. Honestly reflect on it. Enjoy this era of peace. There are dark times on the horizon
If Linkin Park plays in the forest and no one is around to hear it, in the end, does it even matter?
