More than we talk about and they KNOW IT!
They will say that people don't use BC but I know from my life experience and my work experience that reproductive coercion and BC sabotage happens frequently.
Many of the same men engaging in it will claim they were "trapped" twitter.com/AreaWoman3/sta…
“Feminist” jail reforms have a long history in NYC, and have resulted in the same humanitarian crises that plague the rest of the city’s jails. My new article looks at this history amidst calls for a “trauma informed” jail in Harlem. truthout.org/articles/nyc-a…
It’s really weird how everyone seems to innately understand that internal borders are a sign of fascism but everyone treats external ones as perfectly ordinary and compatible with a good society. twitter.com/meidas_wendy/s…
About 1 in 50 pregnancies are ectopic.
The only treatment is to end the pregnancy; refusing care generally leads to the death of the pregnant person.
This, below, is what happens when the state values a fetus over the life of the pregnant person.
We must keep fighting. twitter.com/michael4mo/sta…
Lin Manuel Miranda: maybe babies won't be forcibly birthed by matey's gravy with scabies and rabies if this country north of Haiti elected some leading ladies! lemme pass it to milady while I play ukelele!
Amanda Palmer: here is every slur I know in alphabetical order twitter.com/caylenb/status…
A question for historians, as I continue to spiral into anxiety before the 4th--has there ever been a country that got to this point in the fascist checklist that was able to turn the tide? if so, which ones & what steps?
Keep this going. @Tinu NEEDS this medication and not only is it outrageously expensive, but Tinu is facing losing insurance. Keep sharing, not only here but with all your networks if you can! twitter.com/karriehiggins/…
The Texas Supreme Court failed to protect the health and safety of families and our communities. They had power to stop enforcement of TX pre-Roe ban, but chose to impose their ideologies and political agendas to block thousands of Texans who need abortion care from getting it.
3. As SAR2 evolves towards ever more efficient airborne transmission, it has become time to relegate foolish assumptions to the effect that outdoors transmission is insignificant to the dustbin of history twitter.com/ToshiAkima/sta…
I feel like there are reasons we're seeing so many "We wouldn't have had to go so far if you hadn't made such a fuss about how far we were going." narratives right now.
And one of them is to make non-compliance unpopular. To get us to police ourselves and each other, for them. twitter.com/AOC/status/154…
But it'll be better for everyone overall.
I can have everything (free newsletter, paid content, previews) in one spot.
Which means more output and an easier archive to browse.
And I'll be able to gift paid memberships to survivors who can't afford to subscribe!
A huge part of their shtick is pretending that "ANYONE CAN BE NEXT! the woke mob is causing professors to get fired over FEELINGZ"
Then you find out a grown ass man has been using ivy league teens as his main dating pool for decades
PRINCETON: You slept with an undergrad.
PROFESSOR: This is because I said something "racist"!
OBSERVER: You slept with an undergrad and you're racist?
PROFESSOR: Hold on. Let my wife, who I met when she was an undergrad, explain. She's a heterodox thinker.
Pardon me, but it seems weird for the “outer edge of the anti-abortion movement” to make up the mainstream of GOP officials.
Officials in multiple states have moved to introduce or reimpose bans with no exceptions—and to write into state codes that life begins at fertilization. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
This right here. The same tropes were used against Amber Heard. The same tropes were used against me by my abuser. He prohibited me from having friends “for my own good,” to keep me “safe” from my bisexuality. twitter.com/shirieisner/st…
Friendship tip: if you’re visiting someone who is recovering from illness, birth, grief, ask them if they need anything from the store AND list out examples of what you would be able to bring them. People forget they need paper towels until someone reminds them.
I also want to point something out about Peterson's banning and how arbitrary Twitter's rules are.
Peterson has constantly--and I mean CONSTANTLY--misgendered, libeled, and mistreated others on this platform. But he only ate a ban once he did it to someone rich and famous.
Amber Heard did not hurt the #MeToo movement. Johnny Depp's massive, effective PR campaign to discredit years of evidence of abusive behavior toward his ex-wife hurt the MeToo movement. And you fell for it.
I'm baffled by people tweeting in support of Evan Rachel Wood who say she's ~not another Amber Heard~ and that ERW is actually credible.
Y'all know that Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson are best friends, right? Y'all know that Manson has learned from Depp's strategy?
