Every time I see a FB friend proudly declare that they've silenced all mention of politics on the feed because it's all just negging, I'm sort of amazed that they think they're privileged enough not to have any of this affect them at all. Sure, the "get over it, it'll be fine" assholes are mostly white men, but the number of white women and MOC who put up statuses like this make me feel SERIOUSLY JUDGEY.


IT WON'T COST MUCH. JUST YOUR VOICE! THOSE POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS (are not me hahahahaha)


Thank you to those who marched. Thank you to those who are organizing and fighting back. Here's a good list of places to send money if you also have no political voice/vote in any country. (Expat for too long.)


Jane the Virgin continues to delight. The humor (The puns! The total disregard for the 4th wall via the narrator!) and political snark is totally on point, as are all the character dynamics. I lovelovelove how every single character gets their own POV explored! Nobody is a foil or a prop- they're all their own people, with their own selfish (and unselfish) motivations, actively writing their own stories. This show totally deserves all the accolades it got in S1, although it makes me sad that the ratings remain lackluster. :(((

Anyway, this GIF of Jane pretty much sums me up right now:

I wish I had the privilege of being able to ignore what's going on in the world.

I also wonder at the lack of compassion in being able to do so. :|

I can understand needing to step away and regroup because it gets overwhelming, but..."negging?"

That's the thing. This could eventually have an effect on everyone, even white men, if left unchecked for too long. I have family members who are "sick of hearing about it, the positive & the negative" & it's like, I am too, but we can't get complacent. Marches aren't a thing around here, so I've had to settle for when people who are clearly curious (not fierce Trump supporters who will hear no reason) about why whats he's doing is wrong & what the law says, explaining it so maybe they won't vote for him the next time.
Checking out your list of places to send $ too. My ability to do so is going to be limited in light of a house purchase, but I'm definitely sending some donations this year.
