The "business owner" etsy artist to gfm pipeline is WILD.

The “business owner” -slash-etsy artist to GFM pipeline is WILD.

Listen, I appreciate some gfm love. I appreciate the friends who stepped in for me when I actually fucking needed it and made gfm pages for me. And those donations helped me cover REAL disasters.

But in the midst of both disasters I was hustling my ass off and working through it the whole time. It’s never easy. Everyone is depressed. Everyone has something going on. But the way some people push their gfm OVER their business…

I understand that the system is fucking everybody.

And that mutual aid is absolutely a good thing. But where is the strength and resilience of the individual to push through their circumstance, to create new alternatives for themselves. I know how this is gonna come off…

And Idgaf. We can cry for the spilled milk or we can fashion a new glass. I watch some of these mutual aid accounts. They’ve been going for over a year. It’s called a grift. But go with God, y’all.

There are people actually, truly hard up and struggling. And they’re not on twitter everyday for half a year to 9 months expecting strangers’ pity. They’re doing what they need to do for themselves.

If this is the new system y’all are thinking up…. it’s a yikes. If you want to organize the general strike and do real mutual aid of farming and raising one another’s kids and getting real commune about it, do that. Get off the grid, pull yor money out the banks.

Stop paying taxes. Organize. Revolt. Rebel.

But grifting? Bc you’re lazy? And supporting grifters? This can’t be the new society we’re going for?

I’m being hella judgy. But being idle and begging for things is fucking gross. Use your brain and move your ass. *MANIFEST* but actually.
