    This is such a scary time to be in America especially for people of color, Jews transgender people. GCA friends who are POC and Jewish, my heart is with you.

    Plenty of well meaning white people are complicit in the events that took place in Charlottesville. We have to use our anger and frustration over this to summon the energy to do better. I hope this is a turning point and not the first of many.

    As a Jewish lesbian I don’t remember being afraid for my safety.I choose my son’s name so folks would know he’s a Jew (at least culturally). I am so scared for us.

    however, the bikini butt charms did make me laugh out loud.

    That Vice Charlottesville video is SO hard to watch! I’m currently paused halfway through, generating fortitude. It’s not just the language of casual racism, it’s that they are SO SURE they are right, and they are so demonstrably wrong.

    Thank you for posting the video about the Nazi/White supremacist movement..It’s so important to really understand what’s going on. It’s hard to think about dresses at a time like this.

    There is an excellent article––Is America Headed For A New Kind of Civil War?––in the New Yorker.

    On a positive news front…the Bathroom Bill was defeated in Texas yesterday. For now.

    Bikini Butt Charms. I can’t even…

    These dark days make one not want to watch the evening news, and yet ignorance is not bliss.

    Two of my great-great-grandfathers volunteered for the Union in the Civil War. I find myself wondering what they would think of all this.
