Turned on Lindsay Lohan's new Christmas movie and my daughter yells "Basic white bitches unite with lame Christmas movies!" ROFL.
16 year olds, man. Most people might think they failed at parenting in this moment but I see it as a win. My kids are funny. Funny covers all manner of sins.
So cozy by the fire. We are loving this. We are so basic. 😂

1. #Narcissism Thread: What is the quickest way to tell if someone is a #narcissist? 🚩Raise a concern with them. Hands down this works Every. Single. Time. #Narcissists are unable to manage conflict. By conflict, I mean be cooperative & problem solve concerns or disagreements
2. I mean being held accountable or addressing a concern with the genuine interest in resolving it. Resolving issues are important to healthy relationships, #trust boundaries & safety. When issues remain unresolved between #Psychology #abused
3. Couples, family members, groups, organisations, it leads to #resentment, #anger & #contempt. This is why: Say you raise an issue with your partner that’s of a concern to you. Your partner disagrees 🚩 & it doesn’t seem like she is listening to you. 🚩You keep trying to express

Our #MentalHealth system uses force on at least half of all inpatients.

One ‘justification’ I’ve heard from psychs is this:

“If we didn’t use compulsory treatment we’d be neglecting people.”

Is that so?

Let me call out this dreadful argument on #neglect... (a thread)

1/7 Graphic with text. It says: “if we don’t hurt you, we’
Check your #paternalism.

Thinking you know what’s best for others is paternalism. How can you possibly know? Many of us have healed without you.

Try trusting that your patients are the experts on their own lives.

That’s not neglect, it’s respect.

Check your #hypocrisy.

The mental health system is already a master of neglect.

You ignore trauma, abuse, homelessness, poverty & other social issues.

You don’t offer talking therapies, peer support or crisis respite. Just meds & shocks.

That’s actually neglect. Sheesh.

I kinda think it's hillarious that @_SecondThought was intimidated by @DHSgov and shadowbanned by @YouTube re: criticism of the @CIA.

For all the wrong reasons...
[a thread]
For once, it's a chilling effect for anyone, espechally de-facto members of the #press [since @_SecondThought does #journalism, be is part of it] to intimidate them by a govt. agency like @DHSgov.

Not to mention that their accusation, "anti-americanism", is not a crime.
In any reasonable justice system, #NullaPeneSineLege applies, which means the government cannot do anything about something that isn't explicitly outlawed.

And last time I checked voicing criticism of politicans was not, @DHSgov!

These pardons are a microcosm of America before and after the Trump administration

e.g.
"[Crystal] Munoz was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana based on her role in a marijuana smuggling ring."

She served 12 years in prison! For pot. 🙄
"President Trump granted Alfred Lee Crum a full pardon. Mr. Crum, who is now 89, pled guilty in 1952—when he was 19 years old—to helping his wife’s uncle illegally distill moonshine in Oklahoma. Mr. Crum served three years of probation, and paid a $250 fine."

...
...
He deserves to spend his last moments on Earth in peace, and free from guilt.

60+ years of hell ...for making something that overripe fruit makes.

Why did no other President give this man a pardon?
