Today's World Census Report
The Most Scientifically Advanced in Anarchy
World Census researchers quantified national scientific advancement by quizzing random citizens about quantum chromodynamics, space-time curvature and stem cell rejuvenation therapies. Responses based on Star Trek were discarded.
As a region, Anarchy is ranked 4,908th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced.

Anarchy Regional Message Board
A concept invented in the 1950/60s to justify people unhappy with their sex.
Honestly, gender and sex is a great subject to study, especially casually (imo). I've been reading some case studies on it, like there was this one guy who had a botched circumcision when he was a baby so his parents tried to turn him into a girl, even had corrective surgery as a baby. So this guy grew up with his parents trying to make him into a girl, and he constantly rejected it, eventually he grew up and sex reassignment surgery, got married and became a step-father to his wife's kids, his parents then came out and said how he was actually genetically male and came clean. Gender, in most cases, is determined, at least psychologically, during growth in the womb, which is why in the case of the guy, he suffered gender dysphoria (in the correct usage of the term, not edgy transphobia). I also read on an article (the same article as the case study I mention earlier in this comment) that there are about 6 (common-ish) biological sexes, at least chromosomal-wise, and on another article I read about 5-alpha-reductase deficiency, where a biological male is born without male genitalia because of the deficiency (due to the inability to make/convert a form of testosterone), so they look physically female, despite identifying as male, then when puberty comes around they get another dose of 5-alpha-reductase and they start growing male genitalia, albeit a bit smaller than average.

FLAGS ARE JUST SPOOKS
I like yours though
I like its colors myself. The red shows off my damn dirty parasitic moocher communism, the black my ruthless and brutal rich-eating cop-killing anarchism and the white just says I'm a white boy on the internet.
We need a good flag so we can put it everywhere in our anarcho-states and pledge our allegiance to it and compare burning it to being literally Hitler deserving eventual but inescapable death by gulag.
Huh, not aware of this case. There's the famous case of David Reimer, which is less positive. The case involves a guy who had a botched circumcision, was reassigned female, later experienced severe gender dysphoria, found out what happened, tried to transition back, and tragically ended up committing suicide...
Let's also recognise another problem with the gender/sex binary. Namely, because our birth certificates only accept "M" and "F", people born with intermediate genitals ("intersex") face the doctor's knife, often with really dysfunctional results, and often results in people growing up and identifying with the opposite sex to that reassigned. This is a huge problem in the realm of intersex rights.
This all intersects wildly with anarchism. The gender and sex binary is particularly a problem because the state enforces it. Doctors violate the "first, do no harm" principle because of the state. Queer theory fights for the rights of individuals against the authoritarianism intrinsic within our current system; anarchism fights for the rights of individuals from authoritarianism intrinsic within the state. I'd argue each is anaemic without the other.
Spoiler warning (unless it was clear from the flag already): I'm the overlord of edge. That's what I become when I debate. I also have been debating for years and tend to not take them seriously. In short, I crack jokes. Oh noes. I am also an anti-work anarcho-communist egoist. Pleasure to meet you all. I feel we can be the bestest of friends. Let's hug.
So what form of anarchism is the dominant one in you? What do you focus on primarily aside from the usual states and corporations f--king up your life?
Well I'm a mutualist, so I'm a fan of socialism blended with individualism by means of "non-capitalistic free-markets", primarily through labour-backed credit and free association. I often identify with anarcho syndicalism because it's quite hard to find other mutualists to protest and stuff with (also anarcho-capitalists tend to be surprisingly reactionary and authoritarian [sorry non-sucky ancaps]), and also mutualism is very similar to syndicalism, particularly in our current organisation of anti-state opposition, but yeah.
Otherwise, I'm primarily a postgrad computer science researcher, which drives an interest in counter-economics and transhumanism. I can't see how anyone can be a statist or capitalist in light of where advances in 3D printing, AI, and human augmentation are going; should the state or the financially-empowered have monopolised access to these technologies, we are truly f*cked as a species, as the most successful form of totalitarian tyranny awaits in that circumstance. On the side, I'm a queer activist and have protested in and helped run an LGBT support group, and to a slightly lesser degree I'm also a neurodiversity activist, for whatever that's worth.
