I think the US is still reeling from recent events. The overturning of Roe v. Wade is likely going to be felt until it has been reversed completely, permanently. I don’t know if we’re on the path for that, though, and I fear things will get worse before they get better. I’m going to weather the storm, though. I’m going to press on because I have loved ones to think about. I have to think about their health and welfare, as well as their futures.

I just keep thinking about January 6th and Handmaid’s Tale.

I dunno. Things feel hopeless and ridiculous and almost alien with this change. Roe happened a decade before I was born, I had never known a pre-Roe world. Now I’m living in a post-Roe world in a country full of religious psychopaths and zealots. It’s all new territory for me, and I think the aftershock is going to be felt for a very long time regardless of how quickly things get fixed- if they can be fixed.

Meanwhile I’m stuck working out of state for the last few weeks. It’s not great. I miss my family. I don’t want to be in this bible belt disaster anymore. These people are fucked, and they’ve been fucked for a long time, and they’re going to continue to be fucked long after I vanish.
