Anonymous said: That's really cool that your mother introduced you to anarchism. Was she an anarchist herself? Was she involved in any sort of political activism?
Yea my mom was very much one of those protest everything anywhere anytime type hippies. She tells stories of jumping in a van with strangers to drive across the country for protests and stuff like that. She continues to be active. She sent me selfies from a protest a few months back when a local bar refused entrance to a trans person. My mom is sort of the shit.
Anonymous said: How did you discover anarchism?
I was raised with a lot of anarchist ideals by my parents. I was introduced to a lot of the more well known anarchist writers and thinkers by my mother growing up as I was homeschooled and exposed to a lot of leftist and radical teaching. I ascribed myself to socialism as a young teen but grew to love and appreciate anarchism through the Modern Times collective here on Long Island that my brothers and I were deeply involved with. I also consider my involvement in the diy punk scene to be a heavy influence on my exposure to anarchism. Many of the local bands in my scene at the time were anarchist and going to shows always seemed to be just as much of a political experience as they were musical ones.
is this a sad blog?
is this an anarchist blog?
trick question! it’s both.
