#PesachSheni Sameach!

Week 95 below.
96.02/ Because we are.

And it's about the same people. The GOP is the Confederacy right down to the rotten core of cowardly rebels.
96.03/ It's really this simple. And b/c it's actually this simple, it's clear anti-voters don't understand citizenship & shared responsibility like I do.

They're like anti-vaxers that way. In this way too: both threaten all our lives when they opt out.

मेरी मां के छोटे से गांव में पक्की सड़क तब आई, जब मां 50 पार हो गई. ऐसे गांव में हाई स्कूल तो क्या ही होता! परिवार में बेटों का पढ़ना ज़रूरी माना गया, तो गांव में बड़े स्कूल का ना होना मामाओं की पढ़ाई में आड़े नहीं आया. वो पढ़ने के लिए दरभंगा भेजे गए.
1/13
मां लड़की थी और लड़की को पढ़ाना किसी को ज़रूरी नहीं लगा. सो मां को बस चौथी तक पढ़ने की इजाजत मिली. नाना-नानी को सबसे ज़रूरी लगा बिटिया ब्याहना. तो मां छुटपन में, करीब 15-16 बरस में ब्याह दी गई.

ससुराल में किसी को क्यों होती परवाह कि उसको पढ़ाएं.
2/13
मां को बस तब पेन उठाते देखा, जब बैंक, पोस्टऑफिस का काम होता. पापा फॉर्म लाते, मां से साइन करने कहते. मां कोई बहाना बनाती. उनके सामने साइन नहीं करती. इसलिए कि सालों महीनों बाद उसको साइन करने बल्कि कुछ लिखने का मौका मिलता था. उसके सिग्नेचर हर बार अलग हो जाते. पापा झल्लाते थे.

A year ago today I was having a near emergency reaction to a medication that I’d been prescribed bc a psychiatric PA didn’t believe that the best first step to treating my extreme postpartum depression & anxiety was stimulant meds for my untreated ADHD. #MothersDay🧵
I probably should have been treated for PPD & PPA immediately. At 2 wks postpartum I rushed out of a follow-up to go pump & wound up w/mastitis anyway. When I called for meds the Dr asked why I said nothing at the appt…
I didn’t know my pain was worthy of notice until I was running a 103 fever & couldn’t hold my twins.

At 6 wks I filled out a form. My best Dr EVER said it was “normal” that I cried every day “bc they will never be this tiny every again.” That my hormones would re-regulate.

Today in the US, it is #MothersDay. I am happily childfree by choice. I had two abortions because I did not want to be a mother. That choice must be available to everyone who can get pregnant. feministgiant.com/p/essay-lies-s…
I am happy with the life I have created. I have never wondered what it would have been like to have children. We often hear “you’ll regret it when it’s too late.” It is “too late” now and I am here to say: I do not regret it. feministgiant.com/p/unmothering?… #MothersDay
Most books/essays I've seen about being childfree by choice are written by white cis women. We need to hear from more women of colour & women from different cultural & faith backgrounds as well as trans men & non-binary people who choose to be childfree. I have my book planned.

It’s impossible not to think of all the Ukrainian moms spending #MothersDay displaced, in refugee camps, in bunkers, fearing for their families, mourning, fighting for their country, or those who are no longer here at all.

It’s an honor to have shared so many of their stories.
Like Olesia, who was forced to flee Ukraine at 38 weeks pregnant and who safely gave birth to her daughter, Kira, who loves to sleep, eat and recently smiled for the very first time. today.com/parents/pregna…
And the 3 Ukrainian moms held captive in a basement by Russians for 25 days. A grandmother who protected a young Ukrainian girl from likely rape. A mom who found a way to feed her infant. Another mom who had to tell her 7 yr old Russians killed his dad. today.com/parents/parent…

On #MothersDay, U.S. First Lady Jill Biden met mothers from #Ukraine in Slovakia, assuring them that the “hearts of the American people” are behind them. apnews.com/article/russia…
“I cannot explain because I don’t know myself and I’m a teacher,” Viktoriia Kutocha, who had her arms around her 7-year-old daughter, Yulia, told Biden.
At one point, Kutocha asked “why?” seeming to seek an explanation for Russia’s decision to invade Ukraine on Feb. 24.

’It’s so hard to understand,” the first lady replied.

After my daddy had a heart attack, he couldn’t work for a while. Bills piled up. One day, I walked into my parents’ bedroom. My mother’s face was red and puffy. A dress was laid out over the bedspread—the dress that only came out for weddings, graduations, and funerals:
"We are not going to lose this house,” she kept saying. She’d never worked outside the home. She was terrified. But she knew what she had to do. She put on that dress, walked down the street to Sears, and got a minimum wage job that saved our house and saved our family.
This #MothersDay, I’m thinking of my mother’s courage. I’m thinking of all the mamas fighting for their families. And I’m thinking of all the ways the deck is stacked against them: A black-and-white photo of Elizabeth Warren as a young girl,

For what will likely be the last #MothersDay before Roe v Wade falls, for @TODAYshow @TODAY_Parents I spoke to moms who had abortions and who say access to abortion care is the reason why they’re the people and the moms they are today.

"I have been able to live my life in choice. And even when my kids make me feel crazy, I love them and I chose to have this life with them. I cannot imagine being forced to be a mother." - Holly, 42
“I always knew I wanted to be a mom and have children. I just knew that moment was not the time.” - Amanda, 45

Remembering my mother on #MothersDay.

My mom wasn't the "best mother in the world." But, she tried her best to be a good mother. Like all humans, she was flawed and towards the end, with age and battle against cancer, she became eccentric and challenging to handle.

Thread ⬇️
Growing up being her daughter was not easy. She was finicky. E.g., clothes had to be hung on the clothesline in a certain way depending on the type and material, folded and segregated in a certain way. The "certain way" was her way.
My mom was hardworking. She had to since she raised 5 children alone. I used to look forward to her come home from work. But on her return, we would invariably get scolded for not doing extra beyond the assigned tasks. She pushed us beyond our limits in many areas of our lives

On #MothersDay, we recount the inspirational story of Alleta Sullivan who despite losing five sons to war, went on stoically, undeterred to inspire people and serve her country (1/17)
The USS Juneau was a light cruiser of the US Navy in WWII. On November 13, 1942, during the Battle of Guadalcanal, Juneau went down after being hit twice by torpedoes from Japanese submarines (2/17)
A total of 587 men perished, only 10 survived. Among the 587, were 5 men: George, Frank, Joe, Matt and Al Sullivan -- five brothers. Against the rule of the Navy, the five brothers had insisted on being assigned to the same ship (3/17)

माझ्या आईचा. तिसरीत असताना.
ती चिडली होती काही कारणाने माझ्यावर. आणि मी माकड उड्या मारत बसलेलो
तेव्हा बाबांनी हळूच आमचा कॅमेरा दिला माझ्या हातात. आणि हा फोटो क्लिक झाला. #MothersDay #MotherDay2022 #photo #PhotoOfTheDay

Amy Coney Barrett is not a Footsoldier of the Patriarchy. She is a Five-Star General of the Footsoldiers of the Patriarchy. feministgiant.com/p/if-amy-coney… #RoeVWade #SCOTUS #AbortionIsHealthcare
Amy Coney Barrett is a mediocre judge who was elevated because she’s a white mother of school-aged children who will do white supremacist patriarchy’s bidding in a country that hates mothers and children who are not white. feministgiant.com/p/essay-the-ju… #RoeVsWade #MothersDay
The confirmation of Barrett to the Supreme Court was the crowning achievement of concerted and zealous political power play by conservatives since the early 1970s at least.

I am childfree by choice. Happily so.

I published this on last year's #MothersDay. And here it is again for #MothersDay2022

feministgiant.com/p/unmothering?…
I have had two abortions. I did not want to have children. I was not raped. I was not sick. The pregnancies did not threaten my life. I just did not want to be pregnant.

It took me 25 years to write about my abortions.
#RoeVsWade #AbortionStories

feministgiant.com/p/abortion-is-…
The few abortion narratives that are considered “acceptable” are often prefaced with trauma and pain—as if they were the price to be exacted for bodily autonomy.

It is important to share abortion stories that say simply: #IDidNotWantToBePregnant

1/ Attention fellow sugar addicts:

Today is the soft-open of my new business, Marcenet Mercantile, named after my grandmothers, Marcella and Neta.

(BONUS: Discount code 15PERCENTOFF)

Shown here: home made marshmallows enrobed in Belgian Chocolate.

👉shop.castiron.me/marcenetmercan… Image
2/ I won't be posting every day about chocolates or caramel or cookies, but about once a week, I will add things to my store and will post about them. Pictured here: home made caramels in the best Belgian dark chocolate on the market.

3/ If someone told me I'd become a chocolatier in my 50's, I would have said...yeah, that sounds about right. 🤣 When one door shuts, a window opens, which is great unless you get too fat from eating the "mistakes" to fit through a window. ➡️shop.castiron.me/marcenetmercan… ImageImageImageImage

సముద్రం ఓ ప్రపంచం. లక్షలాది జీవరాశులకు కన్న తల్లి.

పద్యం రాస్తున్నాను
సముద్రం చూస్తూ ఉంది
స్ర్తిలింగం పుంలింగం ధరించిన జలధి
ఒకరికి తండ్రి సముద్రుడు
ఒకరికి తల్లి సముద్రం!

ఉధృతమై అలలు ముందుకురుకుతుంటే
ప్రమాదాన్ని పసిగట్టి సముద్రుడు
ముక్కుతాడేసి లాగుతుంటాడు
అలల్లో చిక్కిన మానవుడు
అసువులు బాసినపుడు
అలలెంతగా కన్నీరు విరజిమ్ముతాయో
వీక్షకులు ప్రత్యక్ష సాక్షులు
విగత జీవుల్ని వొడ్డుకు చేర్చి
సముద్ర గర్భంలో ఎవరూ దాగిలేరని
శే్వతపత్రం విడుదల చేస్తుంది
నిద్రించే చరాచరాలకు
మేల్కొల్పు చెప్పటానికి
సముద్రం నిత్యం ఘోషిస్తుంది
సూర్యుడు చంద్రుడు తన బిడ్డలని
పగలు రాత్రి తోడుండే అమరులని
మురిపెంగా చెప్పి మురుస్తుంది!
సముద్రుడు అరిస్టాటిల్‌కు
ప్రియాతి ప్రియమిత్రుడు
వొడ్డున నిల్చిన వీక్షకులకు
ఓడను పైనించి కిందికి
అంచెలంచెలుగా చూపి

This Mother’s Day, we are thinking of the Palestinian Mothers who are fighting on the frontlines in Sheikh Jarrah against evictions by Israeli settlers. ✊🏼🇵🇸 #MothersDay #SaveSheikhJarrah
This Mother’s Day, we remember the late Rifqa Al-Kurd, 103-year-old Palestinian Grandmother from #SheikhJarrah, who resisted her home being evicted by Israeli settlers for over 10 years. She paved the way of resistance for the movement behind #SaveSheikhJarrah today.
This Mother’s Day, we are thinking of the Mother of Saeed Odeh, 16-year-old Palestinian boy who was shot and killed by Zionist forces 4 days ago. May all our Mothers of Martyrs receive their due justice.
