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:

does anyone have a tidy “just one link” source on the DSA

the only NFT I wanna hear about is Nap Fuckin Time

all this shit is happening constantly and I'm literally supposed to go to work and write my little computer codes. why even bother

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.

I'd like to propose we take the security concept that "It's hard to make a door that only good people can go through" and call it "Amigara Fault Security."

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.

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.

police murder in raleigh. every city every town, burn the precincts to the ground 

This afternoon in so called North Carolina, police shot and killed a man who allegedly was throwing molotovs at a police station/vehicles, then at officers. Nothing is known about this martyr so far from corporate news reports.

https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/crime/article261208562.html

okay, serious now (broken windows policing, the liberal urge to write off any act of rebellion as a false flag) 

I do legitimately believe that this impulse to write off this act of rebellion as a false flag is a distinctly US-ian strain of brain rot, one that has totally and completely internalized the main narrative of "broken windows policing" (graffiti and vandalism are "visible signs of crime," and encourage more crime -- keep the neighborhood clean, then crime will go away).

Vandalism and graffiti, to these people, only an indication of poverty, and racialized, specifically Black dispossession and problems associated with the racist dogwhistles of "inner city problems." In the US imagination, vandalism and attacks on anti-abortion group offices cannot be organic or politically motivated, they can only be false flags, because the methods of the attack (molotovs, spray paint) have been successfully ideologically yoked to seemingly apolitical criminal acts.

So everyone in the comments of the linked thread is picking apart this dope ass act of sabotage and revenge as a false flag because the writing is too pretty, the Circle A looks wrong, the molotov wasn't effective enough, etc. Nobody has room in their heads for vandalism as a political act of sabotage, and this has been literal decades in the making.

disability and mental health 

It always frustrates me when I encounter someone who is insistent that things used to be better for people with disabilities, and how they were respected and honored back in the day when they were young

Meanwhile places like Fairview Training Center and Dammasch State Hospital are literally in living memory and are direct evidence to the contrary
