The other day I read on Twitter "If you think none of the women in your life have been sexually assaulted because they've never told you about it, it's because they don't feel safe enough with you to tell you."

The fact that so many people are calling Claudia Conway an attention seeking teen for posting her mother's abuse just honestly underlines what I already knew. The right wing is anti human. They don't want to protect women, PoCs, or the LGBTQ+. Why is it surprising that they don't want to protect children and don't think what is happening is abusive, even after a topless photo of a CHILD got posted and none of her other info was released even though Kellyanne claims she was hacked. What a nasty, vindictive bitch. If I hear anyone in my life repeat the line that this abused child is an attention seeker, I am immediately cutting them out of my life. I won't support victim blaming and I won't support anyone who thinks abusing a child is okay.

In response to a confession. The Americans who are largely against those things are just racist, misogynist assholes. Largely male and almost entirely white, they want to keep marginalized groups poor. If they give them a living wage, healthcare, childcare, etc. then that gives them opportunities to better their life and get out of poverty. And that threatens their privilege. They know damn well there are plenty of women and POC who are smarter, more talented, and harder workers than they'll ever be. If they actually had to compete with them, they would lose. They have no problem giving money to billionaires to help them out, because they are mostly white guys too, so they see it as helping their own, even if they, themselves, live in a run down trailer. But ask them to help out the black, single mother with cancer and they'll say she just needs to pull herself up by the bootstraps and stop buying Starbucks.

I've known this for years as an outsider, but it is actually totally wild to watch poor Americans argue against things which would improve their life no end...raising the minimum wage to a living standard, massive taxes on the very rich, rent control, "socialized" medicine. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but I've watched so many handwringing videos about millennials not having babies. I know this is a Western world problem, birth rates dropping everywhere here and also dropping fast in places that previously had high rates like India, but you guys don't even mandate maternity leave. I'm friends with a couple I met while visiting and they actually left their jobs so they could afford to have a baby because staying in work made it too expensive. That is absolutely crazy. People shouldn't have to fucking pay to have a child, raising them is expensive and difficult enough as it is.

I just blocked several people on fb. Don't laugh at memes from the Capitol riot that show assholes carrying swastika flags, and then post Jesus shit, telling me to forgive and move on. These people need to get their hateful heads on straight. I can't handle this crazy, hateful, racist, antisemitic shit anything.

The Q crowd is imploding. Martial law (or Marshall as they tend to spell it) didn't happen. Trump is gone. They got played. Cry me a river. Just hope these psychos don't take it out on innocent people.

Some of you (at least, definitely one), have never taken sociology and it shows. When you oppress a group of people for so long, the ending result is conflict/violence. Some even argue that violence is the natural result of oppression, always. The reason we have the Civil Rights Act is because people rioted. Violent uprisings are the only thing that scares the shit out of a government enough to actually make lasting changes in legislation. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

In response to a confession. It's not really that hard to understand. For generations, people have been lied to in this country about "socialism" and "communism." We've been lied to about 6 month wait lists for heart surgery and testing. We've been lied to about waiting in line for 6 hours to get medication. What we now have is generations of people parroting a lie about "socialized medicine," who vote against their own interests because politicians, who've been bought out by HMOs and drug companies, lied to them FOR DECADES.

In response to a confession. No. It is absolutely possible to push someone to take their own life. It is absolutely possible for events caused by other people to drive someone toward suicide. People have been (rightfully) prosecuted and punished for pushing someone into killing themselves. We all live together in this society and actions have consequences.

Anybody else sick and tired of seeing the bad guys win? Because I sure as hell am. I know that the main orange bad guy lost, but it didn't end there like I had dreamed. A whole lot of bad guys are still winning.
