Almost want to unblock the THOUSANDS of rape apologist R Kelly stans that I've had to block over the years just to say "fuck you, you can go with him."
Greetings on my 60th birthday. With your support, the epic triumph of Indigenous peoples over @Chevron is known by millions around the globe. Your support also has given me the strength and inner peace to endure years of house arrest and attacks by Chevron. How you can help:

I'm still not on here anymore, but here. Here's some news.
Anyways. I'll leave these posts up for a few days because l don't want people to think that something horrible happened to me if I just disappear.
I've even gone so far as to hide the app icon on my phone because even the sight of the little bird made me nervous. I've kept it mostly because it absolutely does help when sharing work, but I don't even want to do that on here. I just want to write.
After #crackerbarrelgate I really began to experience anxiety in this space but I'm hella stubborn and was not going to be pushed out by a bunch of racist weirdos. But that anxiety just never went away.
It's it annoying to post this? I don't know. After years of holding out, I think I'm going to delete my twitter. Lately it's been a space of such anxiety for me. I don't think it's a space where I, as a Black woman, can safely exist.
The immune system reading Men’s Health is absolutely sending me twitter.com/be_nMD/status/…

Fuck. This is just so awful. I had no idea. I'm doing my best to raise two children here in Seattle and I had no idea that it was total graffiti. Now that I know, it's impossible to unsee. Just total graffiti. How did we let it get this bad? It couldn't even be any more graffiti. twitter.com/mccaffreyr3/st…

I cannot take your company’s International Women’s Day campaigns seriously while they’re not giving women pay equity or maternity leave.

These 2 paragraphs perfectly highlight the 2 sides of how white supremacy works AND why the eventual outcomes for white men, by default, are mediocre and unremarkable 1. It’s systems, institutions, and policies ensures that white men “win” 2. It removes legitimate competition

History, when it’s written well, ties the past to the present and explains both what was and what is. @IjeomaOluo repeatedly accomplishes that in her new book Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America

This shit makes me so fucking mad. Seriously. Fuck this privileged hate-mongering bullshit. Texas is not a political party. Texas is not a political point. It is an area of land housing millions of human beings from all walks of life - every one with inherent value. twitter.com/keitholbermann…

trader joe's just fired me for sending this letter to the ceo, saying i don't share the company values. i guess advocating for a safer workplace isn't a company value?

I had the chance to see @thinskinmovie last year, and it’s a seriously gorgeous film. I loved it. Don’t miss the chance to screen it tomorrow! (Did you know that @IjeomaOluo is also a great actress? This seems a little unfair to those of us without talent, but it is true.) twitter.com/nwfilmforum/st…
