Regressives

By | January 22, 2019

My God I'll be so happy when American political Twitter stops arguing about what was going on inside the heads of 15 year-old children on an online video. — Caitlin Johnstone ⏳ (@caitoz) January 22, 2019 Same.

Big Sky Daddy and Scolding Cold Mommy

By | January 21, 2019

The conservatives have long had their Big Sky Daddy that presides from above in patriarchal splendor.

Meat Me

Floptimizing

Being overweight is not an impediment to strength and my even be helpful. This is 705lb beltless for 5. Which is crazy. https://t.co/xMYMZJCmr0 pic.twitter.com/d7qxcOy6Yw — James Marsh (@JamesMarsh79) January 18, 2019 True.
