Felons in Florida can't vote until they've paid off all their court fees. This effects around 700,000 people who have served their sentences. They mostly owe between $400.00 and $1000.00.
Florida's prison system, like the rest of the US, is racist, so this is an aspect of systemic disenfranchisement. Obviously the law needs to be changed, but in the mean time, you can donate to help people vote again. https://www.gofundme.com/f/end-the-poll-tax
Florida is, of course, a crucial swing state.

You can't be a fag unless you're militant. If you're not armed, you're just gay.
misandry is good, susuay.
but if your gender analysis comes *implicitly* from the place of Men Bad Maleness Evil, well, that's where lots of mutually-conflicting flavors of shitty takes come from.
patriarchy *already asserts* the idea that men are underdeveloped, cruel, and violent. subconsciously taking as an axiom that Men are Bad, Maleness is Evil often leads, paradoxically, to making excuses for the bad behavior of cis straight white men, and redirecting your anger at misogyny into... misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, or racism, to name a few.
Men Bad → why did you trust that man in the first place? → sexist victim-blaming
Men Bad, Maleness Evil→ same as straight men, so misogynistic they prefer to fuck men → homophobia
Maleness Evil → trans women are women, but male → Atone For Your Ineradicable Male Taint → transmisogyny
Men Bad → why would you transition to male? → trans men are traitors → transphobia
we need to moralize gender less
