Most of all I learned that my self-esteem does not come from anyone else. My sense of whether or not I’m doing the right thing doesn’t come from tech bros who see me as less than human and have all along. Some laws I obey are unenforceable. And I follow them and they are true.

There is room in the world for people who cruelly and personally attacked me for saying what I knew to be true. But if you’re reading this I want you to know that there will never be room in my life for you again. You’re a piece of shit and you’re nothing to me now. Goodbye.

These are not wounds I’m displaying or resentments to flog for likes & RTs. These were life changing blessings of disillusionment. Yes it hurt. But change hurts. I am willing. For me to feel disillusioned means I was previously illusioned. May all such delusions end.

I’m doing this out loud like this for one purpose: to share with you that this is real — “TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE”

If you’re one of the lucky ones with an intact conscience USE IT That’s the message. I love you

Dude ISIS is bombing Muslim people in Muslim communities during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan how is ISIS Muslim no they're psychopaths

I'm a cancer patient and I'd just like to remind you that Trump is lying, because Obamacare saved my life, and many others

I want my non women friends to look at Elizabeth Warren’s trajectory and understand how fucking exhausted I am, every woman is, today. Exhausted. Climb every mountain, there’ll be a white man there already who took the lift, and gets the prize.

May each one of these men experience the anxiety that I as a cancer patient feel right now, knowing I'll die if care becomes unavailable

That’s right, terrified white people, the brown zombies are 1000 miles from the southern border and they’re coming to mow your lawns, wash your cars, harvest your crops, pack your pork, raise your kids, mop your floors, vacuum your office, and pay taxes. Time to flip out.

Millennials Buy the latte. Order the fucking avocado toast. Fuck and dance and enjoy life like there’s no tomorrow. You age quickly, the old people are lying to your and blaming you because they feel bad they stole your future and shit all over what they didn’t steal

Some pretty messed up shit in these Hunter Biden files

I told the @nytimes  everything. So did whistleblowers I was in touch with inside @MIT  and @edge . They printed none of the most damning truths. @Joi  is on the board of the NYT. THANK GOD FOR @RonanFarrow 

Ever wonder what it'd be like to go back in time and help fight nazis? Support Civil Rights Era? Resist Native genocide? Now's your chance

A gentle reminder that provoking racial conflict between Americans to weaken the US is a tactical goal the Russian military assault on our 2016 elections sought to achieve. And did. They’re doing the same right now. Trump is their surrogate, don’t forget.
