I imagine in a communist society your relationship with your children would be pretty similar - you'd still care for them and support them in growing up - but child-rearing would be done more...

I find that most forms I have to fill in for school/childcare assume that my son is living with me and his father and it's awkward having to explain that that's not the case - especially since his...

I'm not sure about other groups in the UK, so perhaps other people have different perspectives. I don't know of any leftist groups who rely solely on "privilege theory" to inform their praxis;...

Where do you see and hear this happening more frequently? It's not placing "blame" on an individual to encourage them to acknowledge their privilege, and I think if you want to be a good ally to any...

Nobody is shaming anyone else for not being oppressed, and if you think that's the point of talking about privilege then you're missing the point massively.

Why is someone who isn't really into politics at a giant climate change rally? Climate change is inherently a political issue.

I don't think expecting revolutionary socialists not to use slurs against marginalised people is really asking all that much. If you genuinely believed that there is nothing wrong with having a...

I think the context is important. Retard is a word which is still used as a slur against people with disabilities, whereas idiot and moron have lost those connotations as far as I'm aware.

I'm not sure about elsewhere, but among UK anarchists feminism is used synonymously with women's liberation quite commonly. Some of us even call ourselves anarcha-feminists. (I also know people who...

I don't know much about the situation in Japan, but doesn't it depend on who is using a slur and who it is directed at? A slur used by a marginalised person against a privileged person isn't part of...

I'd say the only context in which it's okay to use racial slurs is in a discussion about the words themselves. As an example, I grew up in a small, very white and kind of racist town in the...
