Just in case anybody wants to make a mask for themselves or for others, I have made a step-by-step thread on Twatter, with pictures. This can be done by hand if you don't have a sewing machine, just make tiny careful stitches.
Have I mentioned that my FtM trans child has....apparently desisted? She stopped taking testosterone over 2 months ago and her voice has gone back to almost normal.
We're playing it down, as we played down her 'transition'. Because she has to live inside her body...we don't. But the thought that she is back to accepting her healthy normal body is a source of great joy to me.
I think I finally saw “peak woke” on my neighborhood FB Group. A naturalized American citizen from Russia, who arrived on our shores with nothing and speaking no English - and who also happens to support Trump - was mobbed by a bunch of people telling her to sit down and shut up because she clearly benefited from being white and doesn’t understand 500 years of black and brown people being oppressed in the United States.
There doesn't seem to be an update anywhere about the protest shooter in Seattle last night.
Somebody suggested he "didn't shoot more" because his large-capacity magazine jammed.
Here is this video of his surrender:
Wife, mom, keeper of animals, creator, author, autist, learner. Conservative in a blue state.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
