I haven’t seen my kids in 20 months and my illness has seriously affected my freelance income lately. I’m trying to schedule a trip to see my kids at the end of the month but can’t afford it.

I hate to ask, but if anyone might feel inclined to help...

PayPal isn’t working for me at the moment (it’s an issue with my name apparently).

I also have Venmo: @ katelyn-burns-7
Ok annoyingly, PayPal is requiring me to use my legal name and there's no way out of it. But it is working now, apparently.
My legal name is also Katelyn, but Burns is a pen name.

So I think my subconscious is trying to tell me that I’m dying.
Remember this tweet? Well I’ve been having a wave of dreams lately that are all death related.
Tonight I had one where I was taking a long distance road trip with my parents and we drove by a particularly gruesome car accident. My mom was driving and she saw the mangled body of one of the car accident victims and she couldn’t stop screaming.

I read Sullivan’s proposal for a “compromise” on trans issues with an open mind and am afraid I must reject it. Here’s why.... andrewsullivan.substack.com/p/a-truce-prop…
Firstly, his proposed bans would introduce the power of the state of not intimate family and medical matters. I reject that idea out of hand. It is fundamentally illiberal.
His proposed ban on trans materials being taught in school I must also reject. This would represent perhaps the largest expansion of free speech restrictions in recent history.

Also there are trans teachers, this would run them out of their careers and we must reject that.

I wrote my first piece about trans people in sports in 2016, there were many others who wrote about it years before me. Please hire trans people in your newsroom, it’s embarrassing.

Like this is actually insane. He has 1.5 million followers and a Pulitzer and hems bullying a goddamn intern with her first byline because he disagrees with the piece.
Like the end goal is very clearly to create a social media environment that makes journalists stop and think “if I report on this issue, will Glenn Greenwood and his ilk attack me”?

It has a real silencing effect.

Megan Rapinoe wrote a beautiful piece for WaPo today arguing for trans inclusion in women’s sports.

These dipshits replied perhaps not realizing that trans women are already eligible to try out for the team. Where is the takeover? ImageImage
If you say something is certain to happen, but then it doesn’t happen after 50 years of saying it’s goi to happen, what makes you any different than the 2012 apocolypse conspiracy theorists?
