Black Blocs And RadFems

Well, they did do it.
As this video, posted on 18th January, predicts, the Black Bloc appeared in the streets of Egypt for the first time yesterday, 25th.

And yes, I do support them.
Ignoring the calls of "teenagers living in Mummy's basement" is important here, as the Black Bloc movement is an accurate sign of the uprising of human people everywhere.

Born in a culture of often invisible violence, what appears insane to many people is really just one of the inevitable eruptions of the sickness which is civilzation. We can, in other words,expect this.

In other news which moved me today, I reproduce here what I believe is an important take on the current transphobia hysteria.

And again, I support what this woman is saying.
I'm sorry, I can't claim that "some of my best friends are transwomen", but while I'm certainly not transphobic, the core question of women's safe spaces is an important one. And one which seems to be under attack by some transwomen - who, I'm sorry again, are men dammit - who have just about succeeded in making female-only spaces illegal.

In still more news - which really isn't news at all but may help explain my fascination with both the above two videos - I took the autism spectrum test yesterday and scored 31. Most people on the autism spectrum score 32 and above. Make of that what you will.
