New Releases from D&O Distro (Queer, Nihilist, and Insurrectionalist distro)

These last couple of months we've been busy working on some new texts and collections on themes of Illegalism, Prostitution/Sex work, Queer Insurrectional Praxis, Anti Colonialism, and more, as well as some new posters and translations. A short List is Given here:

Illegalist/Insurrectionist perspectives on prostitution/sex work:

'Bite the Hand that Feeds You' - https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/post/2019/06/17/bite-the-hand-that-... An illegalist and insurrectional assessment of prostitution written by people within the trade. Railing against, work, clients, civilization and society; the text is a brutal and effective punch in the face to liberal and stateist narratives around work and particularly work in the sex industry.

'Collected Writings of the Prostitutes War Group' https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/post/2019/06/03/collected-writings-... The Collected Writings of the Prostitutes War Group is a series of texts collected from a loose Ilegalist network of Prostitutes who wrote a series of texts and participated in a number of extortion’s, robberies, and clandestine activities which were published in the year of 2017.

Illegalism:

'Manifesto of Nihilist Women' https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/post/2019/05/18/manifesto-of-nihili... Text taken from the anarchist library and zineified Originally translated from french by Micheal Shreve this very short text comes out of the French Illegalist tendency in the late 1800’s and is a call to arms for all women to begin engaging in precise acts of violence and sabotage against those in positions of dominance.

Anti Colonialism/Anti Fascism:

'Towards a Gender Disobedient and Anti-Colonial Redistribution of Violence' https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/post/2019/05/08/towards-a-gender-di... 'The apocalypse seems to be at this point in time, the only reasonable political demand'

' ‘Towards an Insurrectionary Antifascism’' https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/post/2019/06/03/towards-an-insurrec... The text, is a meandering critique of the current state of anti fascism (with particular reference to the scene in the UK), the historical failings of traditional antifascist analysis and the centricity of purely anti fascist critiques which fail to recognize the inherent facism contained within all states, police forces and institutions of domination, as well as attempting to attack both technology and the fascist outpourings of some anti tech positions such as those held by ITS and their apologists.

Queer Insurrectional Praxis:

‘The Mary Nardini Gang, Vengeance, and the Implausibility of Liberal Queerness’. https://downandoutdistro.noblogs.org/page/2/ A collection of all the writings of the Mary Nardini Gang, presented alongside critical engagements with them and the Bash Back! Milieu by the editors of the Hostis Journal, as well as editorials from the European context on the state of Insurrectional Trans-feminism and Queer Insurrectional praxis.

More than just a whiff of latent idpol going on here... . Hyperbolic rhetoric is the play thing of politics..just put an ak-47 on it why dontcha..

"Back your fucking gang."

In other words, "get the fuck in line and do as your told or be prepared to get fucked up by some Bad Bitches", amirite?! Gang logic and unthinking forced collective praxis is not anarchic in any way.

What a bunch of posturing garbage with hella recycled, played the fuck out fttp/igd/pinab aesthetic. Haven't yall come of age yet? You know, developed into something even marginally more interesting? Jfc

Does that make me the free-thinking Individualist enemy, who's also most surely a rapist and/or pedo and/or a pig and/or a fascist?

If you don’t have a gang, you must date around to see if a polycule annexes you

Dating is for normies... fuck dating, you gregarian gang-banger. When you grow up to have a sense of individuality, you'll understand, son.

*putting my thick manly manly arm over your shoulder, crushing your liberal zoomer's skeleton while looking at the sunset with 1000-yards stare*

the PWG one sounds kinda fake

the “bite the hand that feeds you” one seems plausibly legit, but more posing to look cool (text and pic) than anything else. valid either way. describes the type of thing Cardi B admitted to have done.

These guys are not Neo Novatoreans as he and his crew would not contrive enemies the way these idiots are doing. There was something FAR more concrete about that ole incoloclastic tendency then what you see here. Me I'm somewhere between Novatore and Armand when it comes to the question of violence.

no, not like that. not when you say it.

i wish you were their trick, and that they followed through with what they said

"All nihilism is self-destructive, it ends nowhere. Negativism is sound as a method, but the highest truth is an affirmation"

good ol 21st century anarchy, where being in a criminal gang and defending each other is considered uncool...

pssst... nobody tell the bonnot gang

Don't be naive. These people are just like (probably ARE) the old identity driven factions of Bash Back! whose primary desire is to arm their politics of resentment with the "ultra violence" of Italian insurrectionists. They operate on a gang logic that is not anarchic nor liberatory, where the logic of "Die Cis Scum" reigns supreme. Hang out with these "nihilists" (LMAO) and you can expect to get called-out just like any other outraged liberal group-thinkuscule whose egos are resentement driven.

These people aren't criminals, they are seeking the representation of criminality.

lmao
i can tell youre totally not crying yourself to sleep every night wishing you had a friend

no, that would be me

Bash Back! and Mary Nardini gang and Hostis and Baedan seem cool to me.

SirEinzinge, Le Way, and lookalikes...not so much

Rubber / Glue doesn't constitute a compelling argument for these shitty politics. Try again.

Anarchy: the act of hating criminal gangs and being threatened by trans ppl...

keeeeeewwwwwwwlllllllll...

Just like someone of this crew to claim "trans hating"!!! No one has said anything remotely near to that, other than YOU, of course.

lmao kewl story dork, but did you miss the anon crying about the meanie trans people saying "die cis scum"? maybe next time read the comments, silly

I just think it's silly contrived resentful negation. A lot of this Bash Back and other stuff is just the equivalent of shitty millennial scene based metalcore. It's not akin to the gen x era black or death metal which was a clearly defined genre that was dialectically fresh.

This, like shitty millennial niche metal and punk is just derivative crap that lacks writing efficacy and fresh radical concepts.

Cool fanfic

it’s like pulp fiction. it’s worth the money just for the pics. so sleazy, anarchosploitation genre

Nihilism is apparently just another way of saying looooook atttttt meeeeeeeeeeeeeee (it's not but this, is)

some of this stuff reads like it's satire. the bite the hand that feeds one come off like it's a joke and a parody of people that try to be edgy. the tactical suggestions are laughably bad and simplistic to the point that they're useless. it must be satire.

the pwg one with the prostitute slipping the target a "mickey" and extracting secret info out of the target seems like they've been watching far too many shitty spy movies. Same goes for the part where pwg claims they have compromising pictures of some cop that they're trying to blackmail. It's satire, right?

I guess everything seems like 'satire' when you are a bookfair nihilist surrender monkey from the US who lives on teh interwebz and whose only interaction with other people is via the comments section of a-news.

no, that would be me.
and my opinions don’t coincide with that commenter
