Hi bbs! How’s your Friday going? Yesterday I made a mistake at work and it felt shitty BUT ALSO I signed up for A-Camp; you win some, you lose some. Will I see you at Camp? Either way, I love you and believe in you and I know your weekend is gonna be just great! (And oh, hey: if you’re in a very cold place, remember to plug your space heater directly into the wall! Be safe, my pals!)
This week, KaeLyn wrote about the challenges and triumphs of raising a baby activist.
This is astonishing and perfect and you will cry, even if you’ve never had a cat: How My Cat’s Anxiety Helped Me Be Gentler With Myself About My Own.
Natalie wrote about Annalise, Eve, and the How to Get Away With Murder episode that sank a thousand ships.
A.E. gave some great advice on parsing out gender in a world that leaves little space for unanswered (or unanswerable) questions.
Speaking of the gray areas, Esther wrote this beautiful piece: You Don’t Always Transition Once.
Carmen wrote something I hope you’ll read about Jussie Smollett.

@kalasin‘s engines going, due to her one-track mind. Kalasin spent the rest of the morning sipping tea thinking about getting absolutely railed by her, then conducted the rest of her business at high speed, electrified by her steamy thoughts. Yep, that’s the ticket. I…I want to work “maglev” in here somehow, but I think it’s beyond me.
