I didn’t write this - but am reposting off another source. I’m an ex journalist and this matters more now than ever before. Thanks. RR
Please avoid sharing from the following clickbait sites, and when you see them pop up in your newsfeed, click on “i dont want to see this”. These clickbait sites appropriate the work of journalists without recognition or remuneration, then selectively repackage the story in a manner that looks appealing but that distorts the truth. They make money only for the site owners, who do not then use that money to support high-quality investigative journalism or progressive political causes; they use it to benefit only themselves. Rather than sharing clickbait, find the “root” story and share it instead.

It's hard being a black girl and being anti feminism and blm and other rubbish
Hey :) I know it’s hard going against the only acceptable views and opinions but if it’s what you feel strongly about then don’t let them silence you. If you’re white and hold these views you are called a racist, if you are black then you are called a sellout or uncle tom, if you’re a woman they will call you a traitor, they will always resort to race, gender or personal attacks any time you put forward a legitimate, factual argument. They are so easy to beat but I know how hard it can be to get your point across when they successfully demonize you and discredit you. It’s really wonderful that you embrace freethought and independency. Please feel free to message me any time for a chat xx
“Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required, as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster is a sensayer–a spiritual counselor in a world that has outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished away.
The world into which Mycroft and Carlyle have been born is as strange to our 21st-century eyes as ours would be to a native of the 1500s. It is a hard-won utopia built on technologically-generated abundance, and also on complex and mandatory systems of labelling all public writing and speech. What seem to us normal gender distinctions are now distinctly taboo in most social situations. And most of the world’s population is affiliated with globe-girdling clans of the like-minded, whose endless economic and cultural competition is carefully managed by central planners of inestimable subtlety. To us it seems like a mad combination of heaven and hell. To them, it seems like normal life.
And in this world, Mycroft and Carlyle have stumbled on the wild card that may destabilize the system: the boy Bridger, who can effortlessly make his wishes come true. Who can, it would seem, bring inanimate objects to life…”
Ada Palmer is an author of science fiction and fantasy, a historian, and a composer. Her first science fiction series “Terra Ignota” (published by Tor Books) mixes Enlightenment-era philosophy with traditional science fiction speculation to bring to life the year 2454, not a perfect future, but a utopian one, threatened by cultural upheaval.
Ada Palmer studies the long-term evolution of ideas and the history of religious radicalism, science, and freethought, especially in the Italian Renaissance, Enlightenment, and Classical Greece and Rome. She teaches in the History Department at the University of Chicago, and did her Ph.D. at Harvard University.
"A Free Man Longing For The Heat Of Her Cage In Spice"
She isn’t the vulture circling a dead dinner, she is the bargain hunter pouncing on a deal. She isn’t their actress in lights, she is the piece of movie magic that wasn’t seen on the reel.
I know if I could lay in her arms, that it would take away the pain. Still I don’t dream about her enough to bring me comfort and this empty bed I’ve made hasn’t seemed to have changed.
She is a black wolf howling at the midnight moon, and I am the white wolf howling at old man wnter himself. She is the warmth I need to do him in and I’m dying to be by her side on every dark night she may dwell.
