Damn, stirred up a hornet's nest with this thread! I can definitely agree that Crimethinc had become must less hopelessly idealistic in recent times, i.e coming up with some real "strategies" and whatnot. I've never really met any "trust fund" kids, but hardly any of them that I've met grew up in a trailer park or the hood. I just find it all a little bit cheesy, Crimethinc might peak my interest more if they had a cold steel, militant, gun-toting kind of vibe...but if that were true there would be no Crimethinc, I suppose. However, I'd definitely visit a convergence before a rainbow gathering, haha.
Pronouns: Part of respecting each other means respecting our varied and infinite gender identities. In the pursuit of making this convergence a safer space for people of all genders, its vitally important to respect one another’s pronouns. The world of gender is a huge and complicated terrain, but it can be more easily navigable with some simple guidelines: Don’t assume someone’s gender simply based on your perception. Ask! People will be glad you did. Make sure to refer to people by their chosen gender (or non-gendered) pronouns. If you mess up, apologize and work on that in the future. If in doubt, “they” works wonders.
Noted. =)i would rather be accused of being a girl
Is panning somehow done out of a better ethic than using a trust fund?
