One of my very close friends since I was a teen who was a social butterfly, activist, nexus of nerds an awesome person in general died two weeks ago in his sleep at age 44. He's one of a few people I've gone to half the conventions of my life with, knew my past, read my private locked twitter, good LinkedIn reference and was a bona fide positive pal, Buddhist & encouraging.
Been in a funk since; like a chosen brother, thought he'd be with me thru my present to future.
Miss you so much Carmine
oops PPH* == Planned Parenthood
Plus just support Sex Education!! Continuously through life! Everywhere! Always! By everyone! More thoroughly!
In upstate New York we started coed sexual education by 5th grade and I'm eternally SO thankful for it ⚕️
SO if you're in the USA & might partake in sex that could result in pregnancy; stock up a bit on Plan B. The pills are usable for 4 years. Do it for yourself, your future partners, or so you can give them to friends in need. I've read getting an IUD if you have a uterus is a good contraceptive choice because it can work over 10 years.
But please volunteer, donate or support your local PPH and abortion providers. Personally I know Pittsburgh is an important nexus of that for many in the Midwest.
As someone who has had a miscarriage and was told they run in my biological family, I can tell my legal parents I won't ever entertain the thought of reproducing while shit's this bad. Cuz I can't! It's too terrifying. Despite the lack of personal desire for it anyways, the possibility and what it COULD entail has become grotesque.
But like pot and guns, whites will be forgiven or find ways around the laws. They'll be humanized while the rest are 'welfare parasites'.
It's racial/class warfare.
Sure I'll reiterate to all young artists I can, to not apply to SCAD if Georgia is a state that keeps pulling this. Get your ass to California from the beginning anyways, honestly.
But it isn't about a bunch of cells. Nor about Christianity. It's about DESTROYING non-white families and communities, finding a reason to imprison another half of their populace. It's about no more Obamas.
White women being more controlled/subservient is a patriarchy bonus as they try to make America a plutocracy.
Listen, I was adopted. WHITE babies especially without special needs are a demanded commodity in the adoption market. Everyone else more LIKELY get funneled into government Foster Care.
And "giving it up for adoption" is only possible when being pregnant for 9 months won't destroy the parent's life. You are in a fragile medical condition for almost a year. And the likelihood of miscarriage if suffering too much stress; now you'll be prosecuted for killing it! What a catch 22 for NON-WHITES
They FEEL their bigotry is righteous and just. Pair that with remembering 'empathy' is a blue left-leaning SJW term, has been for a decade.
Toooooo many times have I had a Country Club Conservative Adult tirade to me about the dread and horror reading that whites in the USA *will* be outnumbered in the future.
You know that Climate Change world ending panic WE have? They have that, for THIS topic.
Locking up a young non-white girl or mother, families WILL fall apart. Possibly whole communities
ABORTION BAN BITCHING
Too much of a human rights crisis to put behind a cw, so apologies.
It doesn't matter which states are doing it, when it comes to overturning Roe v Wade states are dominoes to get to the federal level.
It's NOT about Religion, it's NOT about ignorance of science.
Religion and misunderstanding of the human body are their cheerleaders.
It is a way for the GOP to stay in power and corrupt any democracy left. The fear of whites becoming a minority terrifies and disgusts them.
But honestly other pisspoor mentalities had to be simmering for it to build up to that shit by 2000ish, and I fell down wikipedia and news article holes trying to read between the lines if the UK's "Women's National Commission" set up in 1969 lent to the divisive mentalities. Obfuscating sex and gender PARTICULARLY by the *Whitest* people who excel at tooooo much bureaucracy on an island nation.
It's bad and I want to fight it effectively dammit.
SO!!! I couldn't stop thinking about this!!! TERF mindset has been a virus-like export from the UK in the past 20 years!!! And this article has SOME explanations behind it, basically stating it's skeptical blowhards that make 'skeptical blowhard' their career, and a Mom forum where ignorant fear-mongering straw man fallacies got amplified around in their echo chamber until it leaked out; https://theoutline.com/post/6536/british-feminists-media-transphobic?zd=2&zi=l7kh75sm
@Eisbar honestly tho Monty Python’s legacy within UK media to this day (much less outside it) is startling.
Drag transphobic tendencies + this first line;
“These were not merely men in drag, as Monty Python had been when they played older ladies, but actors fully realizing female characters. The wigs, makeup and clothing were window dressing that accentuated the comedic skills within.“ https://amp.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/10/the-10-best-kids-in-the-hall-recurring-characters.html
Honestly wonder if the increased rampant TERF-mindset or transmisogynist tendencies in British mainstream mouthpieces is due largely in part to Monty Python’s boorish portrayal of their women characters. In contrast, take the 1990s feminine characters defined by the Canadian group Kids in the Hall plus their range of ages & embodying their roles with the opportunity a flipped sexist perspective could extend their comedic relatability. Comedy molds empathy. In this essay I will—#thirtyHelensAgree

Bisexuality in Media
@Eisbar I guess what I’m saying is I hope her success in roles kissing men doesn’t typecast her out of roles where she kisses women. Bisexuality is hard to rep in that dumb way isn’t it.
MEDIA REVIEW: yesterday was Groundhog Day which doesn't mean much except a small Pennsylvania town loves its rodents and, usually, people remember Bill Murray exists.
No more of Murray
Please watch the 8 episodes of Netflix's 'RUSSIAN DOLL' instead it's much better and amazing and I'm trying to make people who are important to me and or sad watch it because wow it. Meant a lot to me, that the show went where it did. Very much needed.
No spoilers but. Tangentially reminded of slang term JuBu...
#SUse5finale steven universe convincing me to change my life and radically love myself as much as possible this year instead of pouring all my spoons elsewhere/into only roomie/people determined to misunderstand me (family) and just like, sobs, yes, yes please, ok 💎🛡️💗
