a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

there shouldnt be any such thing as a ‘starving artist’

whats ur opinion on monosexual privilege



that it literally doesnt exist and is like a nigh-offensive thought. it takes the very real concept of bi erasure and phrases it in such a toneless way that it ends up arguing that lesbian women have some sort of material privilege over bi women where that simply isnt the fucking case.

I think the concept speaks to a well-meaning but sloppy tendency to take any given binary categorization one can find, and assign it a privileged/oppressed dynamic, regardless of any material observations

"monosexual" is technically a valid category. it’s not a very useful category for practical purposes, since it arbitrarily takes a subset of queer people and says “we will group these people together with straight people”, but it is technically a coherent dichotomy. where things fall apart is when one assumes that because the dichotomy exists, a direct and consistent privilege dynamic must exist also
