So, I was browsing the anarchist subreddit to see their response to marriage equality now being a thing in the U.S. I understand that marriage is not very 'anarchist' but I thought that the response would be mostly positive as at least marriage equality is a small step in the right direction. What I found was a lot of whining and criticism. Some of the criticisms were perfectly reasonable, but a lot of the criticism was stupid things like bashing liberals, complaining that it's not anarchist enough and that it doesn't matter/is pointless. What's funny is that they complain about marriage equality being pointless, but this nonsense about the confederate flag is serious business. I try to call them out on their poser anarchist 2edgy4me bullshit but the comment gets rated down to the point where it becomes hidden.
Part of me just wants to be done with anarchism, but I actually still really like the core anarchist theory and the intriguing history of anarchism. it's just a lot of the people who call themselves anarchists that I really do not like.
