INCOMING RANT.

How can homeless advocates, who TAUGHT US that homelessness is primarily caused by poverty, send out newsletters about increasing funding for vouchers aka means testing and in-kind resources, perpetuating second class citizenship and welfare slavery.1/
POVERTY IS NOT A LACK OF HOUSING. IT'S A LACK OF CASH. Need housing? Build more housing. But DON'T sit there and tell me that if most people had money they would still be homeless. The data just doesn't bear it out. Breaking fucking news: @AndrewYang ran for president. 2/
He and the #yanggang made UBI mainstream, so we can stop propping up the human service industrial complex. Yes, we like working "with" people but there are plenty of traumatized people out there who need help BEYOND just proving their worthiness to @HUD and housing authorities 3/

The predicament I’m in: I’m definitely what MH professionals would call “depressed,” “anxious” and pretty much fit the diagnosis known as “PTSD.” But... the most traumatizing thing that has ever happened to me, I can’t talk about with a MH “professional...” 1/ #psychtwitter
8. Whenever I asked them if the meds could cause some of this, they always said no way! So I believed them. They would say things like “you’ll have to take them for the rest of your life,” “you’ll never have kids,” “you’ll never heal” or “finish school.”
10. You can watch part of the story of what happened here: basically I developed #akathisia & SEVERE #benzo withdrawal. I could barely speak for 4 months, had seizure like episodes, constant intrusive suicidal thoughts for 22 months, & so much more.

I dove into the FEC data, and it's pretty clear:

Grassroots health professional donors far prefer Sanders and Warren to Biden and Buttigieg. 1/
For doctors, donations went mostly to Warren and Sanders, with Sanders slightly receiving more.

Buttigieg received a substantial portion.

Biden received very little.

@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie To me this corroborates the polls which show that while medical trade groups/guilds/professional societies might not support policies like #MedicareForAll, grassroots doctors feel differently. 3/

I saw the movie #Hustlers for a third time.

My thoughts center the character Destiny, #fostercare #kinship and #sexwork

This is a thread
In the movie #Hustlers we see that Destiny was raised by her grandmother who was on a fixed income and not in the best health.

#fostercare #kinship #sexwork
Destiny became an adult and worked as a #stripper a legal form of #sexwork

I really identified with her character as our stories and experiences of aging out mirrored eachothers.
