@sarahjeong This has been the reality in Eastern Europe, China, much of Latin America, and parts of Africa for decades or longer. That is is coming here—and growing—is terrible. That it’s being actively promoted by a major political party and the executive branch of government is frightening.
I guess one serious post I will make is this: there is a real movement to threaten, endanger, and literally kill journalists for doing their jobs. The tactics (doxing, stalking, calls for doxing and stalking, death threats, lies or misleading statements in order to stir people up) are replicable and are being replicated. This is now part of the job description. It shouldn’t have to be. The only allies we have are members of the public who can discern and call out dishonesty.
AMA, I will do my best to respond (but only with “awoo”)
The NYT social media policy is like “don’t post anything you wouldn’t put in print” which is why I am only posting awoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Forgot about this
I know the answer to my "dilemma" is "it doesn't matter, you should eat something for dinner that's not a handful of Starbursts regardless" but I enjoy mulling over unsolvable mysteries so just give this to me please
I'm doing alright, trying to decide whether I'm feeling hungry or feeling a little blegh from eating a handful of Starbursts
How's everyone's night
Although also there's an alt right march in my city tomorrow so I guess the May From Hell ain't over yet
But June is my birthday month and my Worst Ex Ever is now out of my life, so here's to some better times ahead
there was also a police shutdown with militarized tanks in my neighborhood (unrelated to the Portland MAX stabbing which also happened nearby) but it doesn't crack into the top 3 of shitty things that happened this month
May was hell, y'all
I've been real quiet here
