Erin, could you not have shipped out some PPE before we read this article. I just spit out my tea laughing, and probably infected the tomato plants. Irresponsible!

GAL GADON’T

Also, please note that there is a strike today, 5/1/2020 – save your Target purchases for later if you can! <3

If one more effing restaurant or brand names themselves “something & something” I am going to continue to be mildly annoyed by it

          Thanks @snaelle!
          We’re not nearly as badly off as some places, but still, it’s been two months, and if there’s another wave after easing lockdown, I’m just going to sit in a corner and cry.
          I’m probably going to do that anyway sometime.
          Everything’s just been so f****** dramatic and heartbreakingly tragic.
          Also, I really hope that we’re going to have a very necessary conversation about how feminism has failed and why it has in the last few decades.
