I don’t care if someone is taking longer than me to “go back to normal” after being vaccinated. It doesn’t matter! Let people return to stuff on their own timelines after a year of global trauma rewired their brains, you tiresome dorks! Worry about policy, not random people!
Isn't stuff like this a bigger concern to the policy scolds of the world than if your neighbor is still masking outside?
I was lucky enough to see friends in New York FINALLY. We all hung out outside, because I'm not ready for indoor shit yet, and everyone gently adjusted to the caution level of the most cautious person. It works fine, especially if you actually care about the people you're around!

I love being back in Brooklyn, overhearing a cell phone conversation that begins "YO YOU PIECE A SHIT WHAT HAPPENED" and realizing this gentleman is congraulating his friend on having a baby since they've last spoken
"WHAT THE FUCK BRO NICE WELCOME TO THE CLUB" he's currently hollering, as another friend has emerged to yell "CONGRATULATIONS' enthusiastically into the phone as well
"WHO'S THE MOM" ok I'm going to stop live-tweeting but my interest is PIQUED

While promoting his upcoming role as a fictionalized version of Tim Ballard of Operation Underground Railroad, a group that has tried very hard to claim it has no QAnon connections!
In part 1 of our investigative series about OUR @timmarchman and I found the group has a pattern of exaggerating the rescues they claimed to have conducted, and even implied they’d rescued a young girl who in fact escaped her trafficker on her own: vice.com/en/article/k7a…
In part 2 we looked at their blundering overseas missions, which experts told us could do more harm than good. Some of them were carried out using “intelligence” from a Mormon psychic named Janet. google.com/amp/s/www.vice…

New from me: legislators in at least five states have introduced a COVID "Vaccine Bill of Rights" at the state level, a supremely wild document based on model legislation first written by the controversial group America's Frontline Doctors. vice.com/en/article/epn…
I also wrote about the ways that anti-vaccine activists have spent the pandemic working at the state level: wooing legislators, attending conferences, fearmongering on a more local level. It's working.
The Frontline Doctors, of course, are seared into the collective memory because Dr. Stella Immanuel spoke at one of their early press conferences. As @willsommer reported, she likes to talk about the medical problems caused by alien DNA and demon sperm. thedailybeast.com/stella-immanue…

Q fans are not surprisingly declaring that they’ll remain unvaccinated to own the libs
It’s not just Q folks though- I very gently commented on a thread of folks fearmongering about the J+J vaccine and now this guy wants me to know that because of the “fandom culture” of dumb bitches like me for he’s OUT
Some of these guys are literally going to risk severe illness and death to feel like they’re spiting someone they don’t like, which.... okay bud

I don’t understand putting an asterisk right here and I’m not sure it functions how an asterisk is meant to
I will probably make myself a sandwich later though so I guess his advice? Is? Working?
Stupendous actually. I made the bread myself. This guy can’t have any, though Image

“Cloak’s strict codes of silence seemed to insulate those accused of harming women, staff and members said.” latimes.com/entertainment-…
Shocked to learn that an unbearably dorky actor behaves like an alleged sex pest as soon as he’s around so-called alternative ladies in an environment that prizes secrecy and exclusivity!
Oh boy does this not come as a surprise either! Screenshot from LA Times: Vanessa Benton a 27 year old Black
