I am Black, queer, nonbinary, & an unabashed people person. MD/PhD student in NYC; trying to escape with my sanity & ethics intact. Learning to value kindness over cleverness.

Lots of boosts & personal posts here; to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Listing some things I like until I reach the character limit: tarot, storytelling, video games, worldbuilding, non-vocal music, sci-fi/fantasy (esp from people often erased from our vision of the future), plants, & you (probably).

It's time to make a sign and take a stand.


Can't help but LOL at Fred Glass' using the term "grasstops" to refer to grassroots leadership. 馃樄

This whole thread, from a Minneapolis councilperson, is a good look into how fundamentally rotten American policing has become. I particularly enjoyed the "the police union is not a real union" explainer. 馃尮

I want to be clear: I am about as pro-union as a person can be. The Police Federation should not be thought of as a union. They do not affiliate with the AFL-CIO. They don鈥檛 walk picket lines in solidarity. How do I know? Because I do and I鈥檝e never seen them on a line. Not once.


Woke up to find this in a message from my partner, and it is nice to feel so seen. 馃樄

What are all y'all's trusted sources for reporting and/or analysis about the ongoing protests?
