The United States doesn’t have a healthcare system — it has a profit care system 🤬 Despite world class medical centers and technology, life or death depends on class. Corporations profiteer on ever aspect of human existence.

Seems like a genuinely bad idea to be honest. Too many privacy and security concerns. We can figure this out without DNA testing.

People say I'm being dramatic when I say abled bodied people want us eviscerated from this earth. Also, requesting asylum isn't illegal. And the only mother who should have thought a little harder about her childbirth choice is yours. Delete your account .

Put your bodies on the line. Write your representatives. Call. Donate. Talk to your friends & neighbors & coworkers. FIGHT THIS HERE AND NOW so when you look back you can say you did something. You refused to let this become our history.

On behalf of New Yorkers everywhere, thank you to the amazing team at for treating these children with care, professionalism and kindness. That’s how every human being should ALWAYS be treated.

The terror these innocent children experience, even if only for a few minutes, can affect them for the rest of their lives and cause irreversible psychological damage.

I’m appalled that this was published for a lot of reasons. People define recovery differently. Not everybody chooses to abstain. And PLEASE stop calling people “alcoholics” or “addicts”. Those words have zero diagnostic meaning and do nothing but stigmatize.

I don't really mean "happily" but hopefully you get my point. Let's have all the talk about addiction & mental health issues. But let's also not diagnose people we've never met. (I learned that from about people calling Trump "crazy".) It is irresponsible & shitty.

The first line of this is, "I didn't know Anthony Bourdain..." So can we talk about clickbait and Anthony Bourdain? There are many, many people who actually knew Tony who may have thoughts on this subject, who I would happily read. But this feels gross.

It’s time to . Listen to + many others fighting for the human rights of immigrants & all exploited people. Remember: a call for abolition isn’t a call to return to what existed before, it demands something new.
