"On January 5, 1993, a 22-year-old pre-operative transsexual woman from Seattle, Filisa Vistima, wrote in her journal, “I wish I was anatomically ‘normal’ so I could go swimming… . But no, I’m a mutant, Frankenstein’s monster.” Two months later Filisa Vistima committed suicide. What drove her to such despair was the exclusion she experienced in Seattle’s queer community, some members of which opposed Filisa’s participation because of her transsexuality — even though she identified as and lived as a bisexual woman. The Lesbian Resource Center where she served as a volunteer conducted a survey of its constituency to determine whether it should stop offering services to male-to-female transsexuals. Filisa did the data entry for tabulating the survey results; she didn’t have to imagine how people felt about her kind. The Seattle Bisexual Women’s Network announced that if it admitted transsexuals the SBWN would no longer be a women’s organization. “I’m sure,” one member said in reference to the inclusion of bisexual transsexual women, 4 6 the boys can take care of themselves.” Filisa Vistima was not a boy, and she found it impossible to take care of herself. Even in death she found no support from the community in which she claimed membership. “Why didn’t Filisa commit herself for psychiatric care?” asked a columnist in the Seattle Gay News. “Why didn’t Filisa demand her civil rights?” In this case, not only did the angry villagers hound their monster to the edge of town, they reproached her for being vulnerable to the torches. Did Filisa Vistima commit suicide, or did the queer community of Seattle kill her? (4)"

Fuck.

i’ve been talking around this for a long time but yes the systematic desexualisation and segregation of trans women from communities of intimacy and care literally makes us die so haha

(via anagrammaton)

I brought this up recently, although I don’t remember to whom or in what context, beyond pointing out ways cis women have caused the deaths of trans women.

Metal music has historically been heavily influenced by black music. First there was blues music done mainly by black people, then rock developed from blues, and finally metal developed from rock music. Metal has no roots in any of the old Germanic tribes at all. Any metal fan thinking that his music is an Aryan one is simply wrong, and singing German does not make this music traditional white music. Nazis in the third reich called music like blues (as well as jazz) ‘n***** music’ and therefore would also not have liked metal music either.

Apart from the black blues influences of metal music there are lots of other non-Aryan influences in metal. The bass drum used in metal music derived from the bass drum used in jazz, which is originally the Turkish bass drum ‘davul’. Cymbals of any kind have Chinese roots, also with Turkish influences. The same goes for tom toms.

Metal is not the only music that has non-Aryan roots - the same goes for classical European music:

- The oboe derived from the Arabic ‘mizmar’ (or ‘zurna’ in turkish), which later became a shalm and finally the oboe as we know it.

- The lute is nothing other than the Arabic ‘oud’. Not even the shape has changed.

- The guitar is Spanish as well as Mauritanian (that’s probably why ‘Varg Vikernes’ once called them ‘n***** instruments’ and therefore stopped playing guitars in ‘Burzum’).

- The violin derived from the Persian instrument ‘rebab’. It is well known that Persians are ‘Aryans’ as well, but anyway they don’t belong to the old Germanic tribes.

- The complete percussion section in European orchestra music comes from the Turkish military music of the Ottoman empire called ‘Janissary’ music.

Summoning’s Protector issues a hard hitting statement summarizing every reason fascism and anti-blackness does not align with metal music. Read the full piece here. (via alahaidgi)

Whew! Never fucking overlook music history….
