I’m sorry to drag what started out as a mostly ironic twitter disc horse on here, but I’m unironically a bedtime abolitionist. The current diurnal norm is incredibly ableist to people who have circadian rhythm disorders (like me). I shouldn’t be forced to be awake in the middle of my circadian night, I shouldn’t be forced to suffer chronic sleep deprivation. All people should be able to follow their natural sleep rhythms. I want a world in which alarm clocks are obsolete.
"No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave...."
Guess fucking what, if you work for someone else for a wage or a salary, you are a hireling. You are working class. You were never meant to have a voice in this country. Realize that!
You are not a billionaire, and you never will be. It is only when the least among us are completely free that you will be free.
Why we want Reproductive Rights, and not just abortion access.
Transgender People have been forcibly sterilized in this country, in some states, to this day
Neurodivergent people have been sterilized, and this practice sadly exists to this day.
Disabled people have been sterilized, and sadly continues to this day.
A long standing Inmate sterilization program exists to this day.
Indigenous people were sterilized as part of a Colonial Genocide progrom, that ended as recently as 2006.
Dear fellow leftists, we have to be on guard for those in our midst that through ignorance or malice come across sounding a lot like Nazis and Nazi sympathizers.
Part of that is also going to be stopping and taking a look at what we ourselves might be saying/doing when someone suggests that we are sounding like such.
A good starting point would be to NOT stick your nose in a conversation and say "But what's wrong with that," when someone is calling people out for using Nazi slogans.
Not quite ready to eat the rich, try giving this a read:
I question the credentials of the journal that let this tripe get published.

People keep using the bible to say to have compassion for Trump.
The bible talks in repeatedly about dealing with political leaders who are tyrannical or fuck up this badly.
When dealing with this sort of situation, the scriptural response, for those who believe in the bible, is G*d flat up telling the people "You want to handle this one yourself, or want me to take care of it?"
"Turn the other cheek" does not apply to leaders who fuck up this bad.
