‘Margaret Thatcher’s acolytes promised to create a classless society, and they were quite right: Britain is instead becoming a caste society, one in which where you were born determines ever more where you end up’.

To be fair to the dudes today, this isn’t anything new for me. This happened all the time in lefty, right on Scotland.

It’s bananas and I’m sorry that you have to navigate this with supposed ‘friends’. I hope they are no longer in your circle. x

It’s so gross. I had two different guys in today working on things and they both essentially said the same thing to me. One dude had an uncle who migrated to Florida and he still had the nerve to carry on complaining about migrants.

Literally a conversation today: Handyman: Are you American? Where are you from? Me: Texas! HM: Wow. I’d love to live in Florida but Trump’s really cracked down there, haha Me: uh HM: Wish they would do that here. Not you, of course. *winks* Me: So, about that leak...

Handymen of the West Midlands: I beg of you to stop trying to flirt with me using causal xenophobia. Guess what? I am a migrant. Even though you’ve been to Florida and would love to visit LA some day, that doesn’t give you a reason to complain to me about migrants. 🙄

‘They don’t care what facts women have, because women’s facts can be gotten rid of, and indeed the whole long arc of justice now crashing down that we call has been about whether women may be in possession of facts’

Few women would willingly disrupt their lives like this especially knowing that they won’t be believed anyway. I believed Anita Hill in 1991 and I believe Christine Ford today.

‘Anita Hill, this is Ginni Thomas, and I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.’

Remember when Ginni Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, left a harassing message for Anita Hill 20 years *after* Hill’s groundbreaking testimony?

If Kavanaugh is confirmed, that means every 5-4 opinion authored by the Court's conservative majority will include two men credibly accused of sexual harassment and attempted rape. If that doesn't call into question the legitimacy of the institution and the rule of law...
