🧷 hi, i’m noah, also sometimes called bee!

i’m a twenty-something transmasculine queer weirdo with too many hobbies and a bad habit of collecting mathoms and tchotchkes.

you can follow req me provided:
🖤 you interact with good faith
🤍 don’t flirt unless we’re buds
🖤 you don’t have foss in your bio
🤍 you’re not a nazi or nazi-adjacent

i encourage you to:
🔪not fucking try it with me🔪

i dont think this take is anti commie insomuch as it is was meant as an ego check for new white leftists. tbf i think the initial statement was also inclusive of less radical leftists.

as much as i am super into the dms i’m getting of sexy Lenin/Che/Castro OT3 erotic RP prompts, i’m actually imvolved in an eRP of Luxemburg/Armand with my sweetie and we’re exclusive :’)

anyway saw a tiktok the other day where an indigenous person was talking about how the obsession with state communism is alienating to indigenous sovereignty activists and tbh when it comes to commies who live in colonized states i think land back supersedes a need for a vanguard party here. colonized nations would massively benefit from a renewed focus on indigenous independence and landback movements.

this post also would have gotten my IP banned from twitter, i’m pretty sure

@bee I mean I think it's very obvious you were talking about in minecraft

lucy is the only person to fave or boost this so far and that’s how i know i struck gold

okay but this is the post that really gets me on the watchlist lmfaooooo

*thinking about ways to solve capitalism* y’know, farmers markets and city elections are super great. *thinking a little harder* fascism sure does love to assassinate unionizers though *thonk* the trots were right, maybe if kaczynski woulda had a lil more firepower we coulda really made something happen there

this isn’t even me being a devil’s advocate. i’m really just into regional communities.

okay i’m feeling spicy: i think council communism sounds Good, actually. where are my tankie mutuals. i wanna throw down on main.

anywho sorry for sparking tech worker discourse, i will be more deliberate when i am trying to smear folks who make $300k a year working 40hrs/week and still don’t tip when they eat out

^ as an addendum: i’m not arguing that ppl like my coworkers or bosses are capitalists or in control of the system. but i am gonna point out how absolutely bizzaro it is to see the very real divide between financially secure and intergenerationally wealthy folks and first-gen salaried folks in their mindsets around money and survival. i’m not discussing ultra-wealth, i’m discussing the weight of the intergenerational trauma of poverty.

it’s a thursday afternoon so i hope nobody’s surprised i’m having a minor existential crisis about the classist violence of capitalism, no worries, in 15 minutes i’ll probably switch from a capitalism crisis to something more lighthearted like a mild anxiety attack about a work deadline.

and like, i’m saying all this as a person who is a generation removed from extreme poverty and financial instability. my parents both worked through college and were able to make ends meet and then some by the time i was a toddler. this sense of fear and stress, that remains even after finding employment and having access to health care and housing, is 5000000x more intense for folks who don’t have the privilege of that cushion. it’s so fucked.

i have a recurring nightmare that i get fired as soon as i turn 26 and don’t have enough money for my meds, become unable to work or function, and then have to give away all of my belongings so that i don’t have wealth in excess of $2k so i can go on medicaid.

if i don’t have access to my chronic neuropathy/pain meds (which are a whopping $2k per month off insurance) then i literally cannot take care of myself. i am one period of extended unemployment away from that reality at any moment.

Show thread

realizing that other people didn’t live in constant fear of being fired and being unable to access health insurance was also a wild realization- like, many of my older superiors have spouses in tech who could or do have them on their insurance and could support their entire families. or many of my coworkers are still supported by their parents’ intergenerational wealth.

anyway office jobs are fake and it’s actually completely wild to go from food service, education, retail, or any kind of manual labor to an office job. even more shocking if you come from an immigrant family or from intergenerational poverty where extreme wage slavery is and was the only work accessible to your family.
