“Have a party!” he said.

“I will!” I replied

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a dangerous white supremacist. Expel her. h/t @rerutled
If Marjorie Taylor Greene was a Muslim, she would be in Guantanamo Bay and in shackles. But because she is white, evangelical, and a woman, she is instead a member of the House of Representatives in the most powerful country in the world.…
As recently as September, she posted on her candidate Facebook page an image of herself holding a gun alongside images of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib and incited violence against them.…

Happy #Eid!

I know it’s difficult not to be with loved ones for another Eid since the pandemic began, but I hope whether by video chat/phone/etc, you can exchange greetings with loved ones. ❤️✊🏽💜

This Eid is hard for my extended family because one of my cousins died of #COVID19 in Egypt yesterday. He most likely was infected through his work as a doctor.

This Eid is hard for many others around the world who’ve lost loved ones, esp Palestinians under Israeli bombardment
I still wanted to send #Eid greetings as an act of love and solidarity 💜✊🏽❤️

I just found out my cousin Amr has died of #COVID19 in #Egypt. He was 40yrs old and had 5 children. I am heartbroken for his family and his parents my Tante Leila & Uncle Khairy, and his siblings: his twin sister Yasmine, and brothers, Ahmed and Fouad, also twins. Rest well, Amr
Amr is one of at least 3.3 million people who have died of #COVID19 globally.

It is not over. We are not about to "go back to normal." None of us is safe until all of us are safe.

Please take all precautions you can. And fight for #CovidVaccine equity and universal vaccination.
Almost exactly a year ago, Beloved @rerutled's father Richard died of #COVID19.

Our families are among the millions of families who have lost loved ones to this global pandemic, unable to grieve collectively or to find solace in family gatherings.

Take care of each other. 💜

The drive to draft wombs into the service of producing workers is especially sharp in the US and China, each vying for global leadership and each reeling from population decline and plummeting birth rates.
Notably, it is the decline in white babies in the United States and Han Chinese babies in China especially that worry the powers that be.

We are more than walking incubators for ethno-supremacist patriarchy.
So threatening is the rejection of heterosexual sex, marriage & child-rearing—an idea known as 6B4T, which originated among South Korea’s radical feminist movement—that feminists espousing it were abruptly kicked offline.
