public transit should be completely free, not only to encourage people to use it, but to avoid punishing the poor for being poor and to take away a common excuse for the police to harass marginalized groups

I'm thinking about it like this:

She is a racist. = That's just who she is. You can't change who you are at your core.

re: How I became convinced anarchism is the only way

a thing i see people doing sometimes is stereotyping bigots as ugly, unintelligent, etc, and there are two reasons i think we should avoid doing that

1. it splash damages onto people who also fall into those categories. saying ‘haha, person X is racist, they probably have a tiny dick’ only works if you’re implying that having a tiny dick is bad, and that’s body-shaming even if you’re being Woke about it
2. it sets up the contrapositive: if bigoted people are ugly and unintelligent, then smart or attractive people can’t be bigoted. and that’s obviously false and a dangerous thing to believe.

I feel so much better when I do really intense exercise
