Abuse Mention; Biblical; Deadname Show more
When spelled backwards, part of our deadname reads “satan”. We got a kick out of it as a kid, but didn’t give it much thought.
Now, I’m prescribing it some meaning. To me, it’s code for free will. It predicts choices between masking, and being authentically autistic; between loyalty to our abusers, and finding our own family; between staying anchored to our deadname, and choosing our own.
Maybe the relatives were channeling someone/thing.

I think there are a lot of white, cis, middle-class autism parents who wish we could go back to the days of institutionalizing autistics.
Mourning, community loss, death of a comrade... Show more
Just found out that a dear comrade just died. Unexpectedly, way before his time. I met Stu years ago at a camp for activists / community organizers, and was thrilled to see him again at #OccupyIcePDX.
He was an exceptionally sweet and dedicated man and I am deeply grieving his loss. If you knew Stu and would like info about memorial, DM me. Probly wont reply tonight; feeling deeply sad

I'm putting the "cutie" in "executi(v)e dysfunction"
I want full on anarchist and solarpunk and afrofuturist and utopian society with the full capacity of my heart.
But I am a colonizer on Turtle Island, and I'm not gonna be a part of instituting any fucking system that doesn't start with indigenous sovereignty, self-determination, and reacquisition of *all land* in the hemisphere. I will take part in no program that doesn't seek equal and consensual association with the peoples whose lands they occupy. I will not put my own interests and desires ahead of decolonization and restorative justice for indigenous peoples and those who were brought here by force and coercion. I will rejoice in no colonizer's revolution.
Sometimes I need to remind myself of this, reaffirm my dedication, because everything around me is designed to make me forget, to make invisible the struggles of the colonized.

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
