Disability advocates often talk about the importance of not physically grabbing/moving people. Emergencies MAY be an exception but now you know a way to communicate instead!

an alarming number of heterosexual couples out there who appear to have interpreted “wear a mask” as “women should wear a mask, as only they can transmit COVID-19,” which, are you folks alright? that’s not how it works at all

fyi: they banned trump from twitter because it was no longer profitable for them to keep him on the platform, not because he incited violence.

IDEA! Let's all report the #birdsite :twitter: account of Donald Trump!

If enough people do it they'll have to take action right?

To me it's awesome how English liberals talk trash on Americans for being fat shitheads and then have meltdowns about Corbyn and threaten to vote for the boris johnson all because they hate immigrants and paying taxes. Wonder if there's a class factor animating this!

Whoever thought a kid was excited at Christmas obviously never owned a cat. #cats

"Is it time to jingle the bells? Is it time to put mint in socks? When do we start constructing gingerbread houses for homeless gingerbread folk?"

Fi'ni prattled on enthusiastically as I hauled the frozen turkey into my tub.
