The #gaslighting of #girls:
1. Host a gender reveal party before she’s even born. You wouldn’t want the world to relate to her for even one instant of her life absent the lens of gender. 2. Stick a huge bow on her head the moment she’s born; she’s not cute enough without one. /1
3. Give her dolls to play with whose eyes and boobs are so huge, and whose waistline and feet are so tiny, she’d topple over if she were real. 4. Pump her food and drink full of hormones so she develops good and early. 2/
5. Dress her in clothes that will subject her to the male objectifying gaze and leave her feeling - and being - exposed. 6. Shame her for looking, dressing, or acting like a “slut.” Not even a common hairstyling technique is safe from that word. #slutshaming #slutstrands

Dear friends, do not be aggrieved by the Senate vote for Barrett today. Instead, factor it in to your unwavering determination to vote. Let it sustain your willingness to endure long lines in adverse circumstances. Have it fuel you as you devote the time required to /1
master the details of voting in your state - signatures, secrecy envelopes, stamps, postmark dates, drop box or polling locations. If you choose to vote in person, rejoice in the masked, socially distanced throngs snaking around your polling site and around the block. /2
Our fury has already been “priced in” to the senators’ decision tonight. Let them live with the consequences of their deal with the devil. Make them pay with their senate majority. Follow the money trail all the way down the ballot and vote the hypocrites out. /3

1/ If you have a Republican Senator, urge him/her to bring to the Senate floor #HR8 (expanding background checks to include firearm purchases at gun shows and over the internet) and #HR1112 (extending the number of days government authorities have to complete a background check)
2/ The current #backgroundcheck process allows a #gun purchase to proceed after 3 days, resulting in 4,800 gun sales in 2017 to individuals with #criminal records, a history of #mentalillness, and other disqualifying circumstances.
3/ #HR8 and #HR1112 passed in the House along largely party lines in February 2019. PS I'm aware that the .@NRA has shoveled heaps of cash, including #Russia-originated funds, into .@senatemajldr's campaign coffers, and that .@realDonaldTrump has threatened to veto both.

No matter how they come out, the #impeachment hearings that now appear to be on their way will turn out to be a long overdue family conversation and massive online civics course where we, as Americans, get to grapple with some really important questions. Leave your examples below
Please make all examples based on facts that were preserved in the #MuellerReport. You may not like his looks or style, but the man knew how to preserve a record.
Ex. 1: If a foreign power offers you help in an election, do you accept the help or do you call the FBI?
Ex. 2: If you continue to pursue potential business deals involving said foreign power, or any other entity looking to do business with you, and refuse to divest or put everything in a blind trust (or even make routine disclosures), have you made yourself susceptible to bribery?

1/ I note with deep sorrow the passing of .@MarkARKleiman, an early mentor and longtime friend of mine. Mark set the bar high for intellectual honesty and creative thinking about hard problems, especially in the #criminal #justice and #drug #policy areas...
@MarkARKleiman 2/ @.MarkARKleiman hired me for my first substantive job as his research assistant at .@Harvard's Kennedy School of #Government and as part of his then-nascent consulting firm, BOTEC Analysis, in 1984. He was unrelenting about putting data first...
@MarkARKleiman @Harvard 3/ ...fearlessly following facts wherever they may lead. He hosted a blog called The Reality-Based Community,, the tagline of which is "Everyone is entitled to his opinion, but not his own facts."

Breakup songs for the .@SenateGOP trying to quit #Trump:
You know what you need to do, let us help you find the words. Breaking up is hard to do, as the old song goes. Here are some great #American #lyrics:
The party’s over / It's time to call it a day
Now you must wake up / All dreams must end
Take off your makeup, the party's over
It's all over, my friend
(Comden, Green, Styne)
I never like to admit that I was wrong
'Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
