I am a writer who loves to theorise and invent.
The following are a few of these musings.
Please credit me every time you use any of the words in bold.
describes the consumerist ways of capitalist-speciesist white supremacy, whether through colonialism, slavery, labour or the literal consumption of flesh. To learn more, sign up to my Patreon and get access to my essays.
is an anti-speciesist theory and praxis for evolving our relationships with nonhuman animals who are colonised into pethood. The theory encompasses four main roots – affirming animals, respect and relationships, consent and communication and animal futurism.
The words and phrases Animal Futurism, animals colonised into pethood and radical companionship are all coined by me and expanded on in the Radical Companionship book.
age-trauma & DELINQUENT…
describes an experience specific to anti-child ageism; our autonomy, ability, articulation, emotions, opinions constantly doubted, called into question or seen as ‘cute’. Age-trauma is the result of systemic ageism. This concept can be explored more by reading my zine Has Oppression Found A Home in You? A reflective introspection on age-trauma or my course of the same name. The terms fearful authority and encompassing consent are also coined and expanded on in this writing.
Additionally, I reclaimed the word DELINQUENT to acknowledge how ‘misbehaviour’ and ‘disobedience’ has been used as a capitalist tool to weed out rebellion. Delinquency is weaponised to specifically exclude and oppress Black, neurodivergent, queer and poor teenagers who are labelled as ‘too much’ before we’ve even walked in the door. Therefore, I am a delinquent in solidarity with all the delinquents across the world who experience state repression through the school system, foster care system and ‘juvenile’ detention/prison system 🖤🔥
The DELINQUENT philosophy is practiced in a Discord server I set up, which you can join here.
