It's been a while since I did a charity stream! This one is to benefit @NRAAFva, for obvious reasons. Going to survey recent-ish games I loved for their narratives. If we hit $5K, I have a nice giveaway. Join me! twitch.tv/nkjemisin

“Let this radicalize you, rather than lead you to despair.” Channeling the radical hope of @prisonculture today. Equitable access to safe abortion care is a fundamental component of Reproductive Justice, and we will not negotiate. twitter.com/scotusblog/sta…

What ends today in more than 20 states is LEGAL abortion, women's and people with uteri's rights to bodily autonomy, and the fragile notion that everyone is free. Clearly, few of us are. I do not know where we go from here but this is not the end of a fight. It's the beginning.

So tired of mealymouthed concern trolling from the privileged about the danger of "divisiveness" and not upsetting the applecart. You know what's actually divisive? Letting bigots talk. Letting them run the show. That launches the applecart off a cliff, y'all.
Gay marriage is next. Interracial marriage is next. So many other rights that are fundamental to our ability to function as a nation are in danger now. Our enemies are laughing as we gut ourselves. But sure, the real threat is "wokeness" and CRT and Drag Queen Story Hour.
So can we start officially calling ourselves a fascist nation now? I mean, we've been there for a while now, but I'm just wondering if we can discard the pretense yet given that the majority of the country just lost bodily autonomy and the right to privacy. twitter.com/SCOTUSblog/sta…
Indian tech workers told me caste discrimination is an open secret at some of America's largest tech companies. Dalit employees have been verbally abused and isolated, and if they try to come forward, they've been reported to HR or even reassigned. nbcnews.com/news/asian-ame…

As we inch towards meeting our basic funding goal to keep publishing through 2023, and look towards meeting our stretch goals, a thread on what we do with your contributions.

#SCOTUS decision isnt fully about gun rights - red states already have them. It's about overturning the will of blue state voters and destabilizing blue cities like #NewYork. @BostonReview bostonreview.net/law-justice/jo…

People tell me, "Oh, you live in the US, you cannot understand how important secularism is to French culture." I guess I don't understand secularism if it means a modest bathing suit can't be accepted as a personal choice made for any or no reason.

As a supporter of @PENamerica and a member of one of its committees, this is pretty disturbing to read on their website. There is a plethora of data that indicates these incidents create a hostile learning environment for Blaxk students and it’s shocking to see PEN deny that. twitter.com/jeremycyoung/s…

I'm not sure the world will believe what's happening here. A mass shooting that killed 19 children and we lift protections against gun violence.

Brittney's wife speaks the truth: "If I can’t trust you to catch a Saturday call outside of business hours, how can I trust you to actually be negotiating on my wife’s behalf to come home? Because that’s a much bigger ask than to catch a Saturday call.” apnews.com/article/russia…

Listening to Shaye Moss, I’m reminded about how often the very people who are least protected by this nation’s constitutional principals are also so often the people who fight hardest to preserve them.

This is the actual Death Panels. Private companies deciding individuals are too expensive to keep alive. This is disability eugenics. If you think this will stop here (which is awful!) and not be used to kill other disabled people, you are a goddamn fool. twitter.com/mjs_DC/status/…

I would travel way more, and would eat in restaurants sometimes, if I wasn't terrified of covid. I haven't gotten my nails done since 2019. There are probably millions of others like me. The economy might actually get a huge boost if everyone was vaxxed and masked. twitter.com/washpostbiz/st…

I kid you not, the blonde substitute teacher told my almost 16 year old granddaughter, "You're very articulate for a Muslim girl." My granddaughter replied, "Good job. Articulate is a big word for you! Isn't it?" That's my girl!🥰

You've probably heard On Here in the wake of Uvalde that cops have no legal duty to protect you. The case establishing that rule, though, is even worse than you think. This is a thread on the 2005 SCOTUS case of Castle Rock v. Gonzales. 1/

A quick thread on extremists targeting Pride and drag queen events: You’re not imagining it. Threats against these communities are increasing. Targeted threats canceled Pride events and forced people out of their homes in the last week. It's part of a new anti-trans "machine."

PSA: If you take medications for abortion at home and you have a complication in a state where abortion is illegal, you do not have to tell your medical team that you took the medication. We treat the complications from medical abortion and miscarriage the same
