Discussion Thread: How Are You?

I am extremely angry and grief-stricken watching the Kavanaugh nomination hearing, because it's a sustained display of the Republicans' undiluted commitment to subverting every vestige of the republic's liberal democracy until we are no longer left with even the illusion of being anything but an authoritarian state run by corrupt oligarchs.

I remain stressed the fuck out about a future I have dedicated my life to preventing that now feels inexorable.

I'm also grateful to have had a very fun and rejuvenating visit with my bestie Deeks over the weekend, during which we went to the zoo and got to feed the giraffes — and that was absolutely as cool as it sounds.

And I am, as always, glad for this community, in this moment. Anyone who wants to join me in another enormous virtual group hug is welcome.

How are you?
