Just whatever random thoughts that I get. A lot of it is media stuff, and there's a little social justice but not near enough for me to feel like I'm doing my part but I'm working on that! Also sometimes I feel depressed so there will be angst-filled posts as well sorry. I tend to go through stages with stuff, obsessing over it and then ignoring it for a while so deal with it. And um thanks for stopping by I guess?

Supreme Courts’s 5-4 decision yesterday to negate part of the Family Leave Act:
“I’ll be damned if the conservatives on the Supreme Court weren’t getting jealous of all the congressional and state-level battles in the war on women and decide that they needed to take up arms themselves….
First, conservatives want to make sure you get pregnant by limiting access to birth control, then force you to have the baby by limiting access to abortions, then if you get fired for taking time off to have the baby, you have no right to recourse for being fired. Great. All these things that have been litigated decades ago and established as basic rights have been inverted.” - Nicole Belle of Crooks & Liars
No birth control, no health screenings for mother or child, no job to come back to. That is the family values of the Republican Party.
excuse me while I rage.
I just. Wat.
So as far as I understand, this is opening the door for peeps to get fired while pregnant, as well as the obvious consequences? Because while actually pregnant I imagine sick days would be for the health of yourself, primarily? Correct me if I’m wrong on that.
But there’s also the obvious of you can now be fired for needing a sick day for a documented illness, even if you’re in time frame provided by law? jdbfaskjbfa
