I'm making my politics known. I Believe: Black Lives Matter, No Human Is Illegal, Love is Love, Women’s Rights Are Human Rights, and Science is Real.
- Trans rights are human rights. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. There is no "but." The number of people across the internet saying that they don't want to see male genitalia in a women's locker room might not realize that trans women have been in there for years, and they have NEVER realized it, so their fears are unfounded. Trans people do not troll locker rooms, and if someone did, they were pretending to be trans. No law infringing on the rights of transgender people can prevent someone obscene cis person being a predator.
- It is horrifying that a candidate for our Supreme Court is being asked if she has a Critical Race Theory agenda, and if she thinks a Hispanic man can identify as an Asian man (the Senator from Texas asked that). The questions being asked of the candidate are blatantly racist and would have any other potential candidate for a job suing the company for a hostile workplace.
- Women's reproductive rights are human rights. A state not supporting a legal right to reproductive health of all kinds for men and women equally is a state that is trying to control a woman's body under some patriarchal puritanical misinformation about conception. No areas with terrible educational systems, terrible support systems for low income families, complicated if not substandard health care, redlined districts, failing foster and adoption programs, high levels of domestic violence, substance abuse, and incarceration rates should NOT be restricting access for women to birth control and forcing birth especially under the guise of it being "god's will."
