Has anyone done the post-mortem thread "How my life is different after Trump was kicked to the curb"?

I sleep moderately better.

But all of the things that sat on the backburner for four years in my personal life--

They're here now.
Everyone's life is so utterly and completely different.

So you might be under greater stress now.

I'm just under different stress now. #Howmylifeisdifferent
I think that we can't underestimate the horror and shock and misery we're going to be unearthing in this post-awful period. #Howmylifeisdifferent
Me personally: all the private family issues are now in full flower. #Howmylifeisdifferent
They aren't bad, they're just... not postponed anymore. #Howmylifeisdifferent
So we're still dealing with the enormity of an insurrection, that a full third of Americans are giving their blessing for. Overt and unacceptable antidemocratic people in the seats of government--while we try to pick up where we left off four+ years ago.
The pandemic has wreaked havoc on us, in every way imaginable. #Howmylifeisdifferent
Women specifically are just falling apart.

And women are the fabric that keep us from eating each other. #Howmylifeisdifferent
This article is one of many that have been written in the last few months, but I don't think that the Male Contingent is paying attention.

We're losing.

Women are losing. And when we lose, so goes the nation/community/town/ #Howmylifeisdifferent
I'm pretty sure my family doesn't know how bad it is for women. #Howmylifeisdifferent
And they're a very, very sympathetic audience. #Howmylifeisdifferent
I've been saying that the entire nation post-Cheetolini would need PTSD treatment.

That was not hyperbole. And the bill is due. #Howmylifeisdifferent
People are excited about re-entering society--but I think that we're also not prepared for that reality. #Howmylifeisdifferent
My life is different in this way specifically:

I don't spend every waking minute thinking about American democracy failing. #Howmylifeisdifferent
But I've only postponed it. #Howmylifeisdifferent
So now I'm dealing with my life, which is probably as broken as yours. #Howmylifeisdifferent
But I haven't stopped thinking about how bad it *might* be in 2022.

And I definitely have my eye on 2024, which in and of itself is an admission that the battle was won but the war isn't over. #Howmylifeisdifferent
And everything is a fucking mess.

Personally, I mean. It is all a giant mess. So I want you all to just be kind.

Kind to me, because I'm a mess. #Howmylifeisdifferent
But more importantly, kind to everyone you know, because even if they're not showing signs of profound messiness--they're probably a mess too. #Howmylifeisdifferent

White people, what in heaven's name is your fucking problem.
Are you pissed you didn't get that cookie yesterday?

Are you sad that you didn't get that promotion?
What exactly is your goddamned problem.

Man, I'm just all about the threads.

Sorry, guys.
But the fam is "going through some things," which in turn brings things up.
When your life is in upheaval, it, as the great @MichelleObama said, "It doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are." {paraphrasing}

Y'all wanna see something.

My basement is now in my driveway a la Richard Dreyfus in "Close Encounters."

I have a miniature version of @MtHoodNF in my yard. Image
Which, if we're going with the lore, means shit's going to get really interesting soon.
I mean = Devil's Tower

Okay, I don't want to call this person out for this tweet, because I'm not trying to drag them.
This tweet is referencing Pompeo and his goals of presidenting.
And, like, I get it.

But I have to say: y'all mf'ers said Trump couldn't be president.

That just speaks to a lack of vision.

In a case of, "Thought my thread was going a different direction but forgot this part" I was thinking specifically of the choices in crisis that women make.

Not, "I'm getting an abortion."

More, "If I make any wrong moves, this man will kill me."
The inevitable choices between soothing the ego of your potential killer and fighting.

Weighing the millions of options between that few seconds when you can talk yourself out of a bad situation, or escalating it.
If there was an anonymous poll of women and whether or not they had felt threatened enough that they might not make it out alive, I have to postulate that it would reach an unconscionable majority of us.

In the category "No one asked my opinion," there's a lot of pretty painful deep-dives into being female/a woman/feminine today, spurred no doubt by the gruesome but important @AOC recount of the Jan. 6 insurrection.
There is no small number of men who are jumping into the fray with their own "No one asked my opinion, buts"
And the first observation I have is: however defensive you are is telling.
