    “I wish he just would have killed me if I knew I had to go through this” —Megan Thee Stallion on the mistreatment she endured after coming forward.

    This hurts. This is how misogynoir harms us. If a famous Black woman wants to die after being assaulted, none of us are OK.

    What’s happening to Ngozi Fulani should be a wake up call for black folks, especially black Britons. When this people are not using you as props, they are actively working to destroy you. You’re not allies, you will never sit at their table. Stop trying to help them look better.

    Whatever Prince Harry says in the second half of “Harry and Meghan” won’t ever be as bad as palace courtiers leaking to royal reporters that Meghan Markle was a suicidal monster whilst pregnant, whilst simultaneously denying her inpatient mental health treatment.

    NOTHING.

    If conservatives really believed Obergefell is in no danger of being overturned, they wouldn’t be so upset about Congress passing the Respect for Marriage Act.

    Proud our country was able to get this done 🏳️‍🌈🤍🏳️‍🌈

    I’ve seen about 5 videos this week w/royal reporters stating that they were given orders to report on Harry & Meghan as they please while being told to back off William & Kate. It’s interesting to see them come out the woodwork to admit it now after calling the Sussexes liars.

    There’s a reason why some of us older fans internationally don’t want Argentina to win anything.

    And we know there are older white French fans that subtly hate their French team because it ONLY started winning trophies once it consisted of Black/African origin players.

    Don’t leave Twitter bc you think you’re creating value for Musk. Stay at Twitter bc you’re here for free while he loses billions. Maybe his actions will end it for all of us. But it would be great if us people who do what makes Twitter great outlast him & have the final word

    If you’re threatened by the LGBTQ+ community’s fundamental right to live open and authentic lives, you don’t believe in freedom and you certainly don’t believe in free speech. You’re a coward whose own identity is so fragile that it depends on the oppression of others.

    Twitter has removed the UA two-letter country code for Ukraine from two-factor authentication.

    Ukraine has disappeared from Elon Musk’s virtual map of the world.

    The effect of this change is to reduce the presence of pro-Ukrainian, pro-democracy voices on this platform.

    Twitter before mMsky purchase was not a very utilized platform but very important for the public square.

    Its brand as its place where media goes to gather extended more clout than its user levels

    The first thing he did was mess w/ the brand and reduce usage even further https://t.co/dQUbbbNYOl
