Imagine how much better all our lives would be if all the energy devoted to maintaining psych, pharma, and economic systems that "disorder," pathologize, and atomize our trauma responses was focused on changing the societal and family systems that cause trauma in the first place.

We are legit in the Dark Ages of SCOTUS. We need to flood the Court now.
Against hundreds of years of congressional action, against solid #SCOTUS precedent, and hundreds of years of history, the Supreme Court held today that states have jurisdiction over certain crimes in Indian Country by judicial fiat. A devastating result for our democracy.

Long past time. Let's go.
President Biden says he favors doing away with the filibuster to codify privacy rights. Not just Roe's protections for abortion, but the full range of privacy rights including contraception & same sex marriage. Now he needs majorities in Congress to get it done. Let's go!

Forgive & forget is the literal opposite of what heals the impacts of trauma. Forgiveness is focusing on a pressure to perform when our focus needs to be on our nervous system. Forgetting is ignoring pain that is being played out in real time, begging to be seen and released.

TW I was "lucky." When my father abused me I didn't get pregnant (He started early and I was a late bloomer). We are now living in a world where people like my younger self are being forced to carry these pregnancies to term. That cannot stand.
Abortion is now illegal in Missouri. No exceptions for rape or incest. Right before I was elected, I met a pregnant 11 year old who has been raped by her uncle. What about HER rights?

When members of the LGBTQI community seek to dehumanize a subgroup using derogatory terms like "cisgay," they derogate the whole. Do better. Find humane ways to critique processes & elitisms without degrading the family. Not interested in seeing what you say or RT until then.

I will repeat this as long as I have to, when the Supreme Court said in 1937 that the Social Security Act was β€œunconstitutional”, FDR didn’t ask people to vote harder in the next election, he told the Court he’d add more justices until they backed off, which they did.

The anti-abortion movement as an explicitly political project of the GOP had to be deliberately created, years after SCOTUS decided Roe, by Religious Right leaders (Falwell et al) all to happy to do *whatever was necessary* to keep America M*GA white.
What Rachel Maddow says here--about 1970s evangelical Christians (as a group) NOT treating abortion as a terrible, demonic act--is 100% on point: invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=RZ_jKXcB…

as well as to undercut women's rights and create a theocratic base that could also be mobilized against ANYTHING the leadership wanted to control: LGBTQI rights, guns, *masks,* an all too traitorous love for Putin... You name it. And they succeeded. That's where we are now.
