BREAK CAMERAS
ERASE RECORDS
DESTROY THE PANOPTICON

Pinned post

Introducing myself to ni.hil.ist :abunhdhappy:

I go by Rabbit (they/he). I'm a queer, punk, occult anarchist. I make software & games, write essays & prop, make art and get really loudly incensed about the panopticon. US-based, en/fr.

Currently working on a game about turning into a werewolf and eating terfs in a ritual to awaken the old gods ✌️

I wanted to try a smaller instance that feels a little more personal, so please feel free to hit me up! :blob_raccoon_peek:

BREAK CAMERAS
ERASE RECORDS
DESTROY THE PANOPTICON

Leftists and liberals in the US are guilty not only of discarding “flyover states,” but of not even understanding that they’re doing it while bragging about inclusivity. I love the idea of robust public transit, but if you think the people in, like, North Dakota don’t know that they’re going to get connected last if ever, I don’t know what to tell you.

People who are like “everyone who drives a car is guilty of killing the planet and should be punished” are unhinged, like, imagine living in a city your whole life. Imagine living somewhere where driving is a choice you make

Not only are IQ tests racist, but the question of whether or not IQ tests are valid obscures a deeper question, which is why excessive, abstract intelligence is perceived as a universal good.

abortion 

Here's some more about the Abolition of Abortion in Louisiana Act (yes, it's Fox, but it's local, reads impartially, and is the most comprehensive one I could find): fox9.com/news/louisiana-aborti

"The bill does not outline exceptions for rape, incest or ectopic pregnancies that are life-threatening for women. Pierce [executive director of the Foundation to Abolish Abortion] said it doesn’t need to."

abortion 

Louisiana has introduced House Bill 813, the "Abolition of Abortion in Louisiana Act," which makes not only abortion illegal but forms of birth control like Plan B, IUDs, and hormonal birth control.

It is scheduled for debate on May 12.

the reason why I have more emotions now isn't because of HRT, it's because the Unicode Consortium keeps adding new ones

Uspol, passports, PSA because I love ya 

Now is the time.

Please get a passport.

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports.html

You need:
The Passport application form
Evidence of US citizenship (such as a birth certificate)
ID (such as a driver's license)
A qualifying photo (drugstores do them)
Fees

The cost (only checks and money orders):
~ Passport renewal: $130
~ First Passport: $130 + $35 execution fee
(optional) Expedited service: $60
(optional) 1-2 Day Delivery: $18.32

If you need to change your name, gender marker, or replace a lost passport, there's a few extra forms, that you can download online.

You have to apply in person if this is your first US passport, or if your last one was issued more than 15 years ago.

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/apply-in-person.html

You can renew your passport online, if you already have one, less than 15 years old:

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/have-passport/renew.html

Here's the Passport application form:

https://pptform.state.gov/?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

If you're pressed for money, it can be worth getting a Passport Card asap, and then applying for an additional Passport Book later.

The cards are accepted for travel by land or sea to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda or the Caribbean. They are much cheaper, only $30 plus the $35 execution fee (though you can't get the 1-2 Day Delivery option). These will NOT be accepted for international air travel.

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/need-passport/card.html

If you are a trans person with a complicated identity document situation, National Center for Transgender Equality has a resource by state to help look for requirements.

Passport turnaround times are better than the mid-pandemic delays, but they are still longer than they should be. Which means applying NOW will get the thing to your mailbox probably by summer 2022.

Good luck.

tip for bypassing the new york times's paywall 

if you need to read a new york times article, try pasting the URL into https://archive.is/

It might take a while if they haven't saved a snapshot already, but it does work. It probably works on other paywalls as well, but I haven't tried much because NYT is the one I encounter most frequently

(web.archive.org works too, but doesn't seem to load the images)

Hey friends! As a reminder, crisis pregnancy centers (which frame themselves as offering abortion then work to push visitors toward anti-choice outcomes) will likely see a lot of traffic and “good press” as anti-abortion action proceeds. These centers often traumatize and outright lie to visitors about their options, e.g. by intentionally misleading you to delay abortion until it is illegal.

In case you were curious, there are resources to find these businesses in your area.
