I don't need full agreement; different opinions are important to me, especially when the exchanges are productive and respectful of each others' humanity. Good luck out there

Seeing a lot of news outlets posting new job listings for early-career fellowships to "amplify marginalized and underrepresented voices" — but after, are you going to hire them full-time and invest in their careers?

That's what a lot of messaging teaches us to think. Good for you for doing the work to heal 🙏

This is a great reason to not use apps for mental hygiene. Therapists are available through Better Help and they observe confidentiality.

Talkspace, a text therapy app made famous by Michael Phelps ads, keeps transcripts for about 7 to 10 years because they're medical records—and data-mines them, of course. But all the other stuff going on there was WILD.

Given how sensitive therapy sessions are, I started looking into start-ups that do therapy via text & then keep the transcripts. But the investigation turned up so much more than I expected:

As well you should be. Especially when kids are taught that relationships or being loved are conditional upon maintaining a certain weight!

It's similar in France, and in so many other cultures as well. In most of the world, the body and its shape and display seems to be seen as communal property? Americans defend our physical boundaries more aggressively perhaps.

This also suggests that everyone's clothing choices even now were determined in 1983. In terms of clothes, this looks like a crowd that could have been filmed yesterday.

I don't think people quite realize that if you ask any competent historian in authoritarianism if the US is a hot minute away from exactly this, the answer is yes

"The government could render homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring. The cure for homelessness is housing, and the money is available: Congress could shift billions in annual federal subsidies from rich homeowners to people who don’t have homes"

Comments on (and control of) weight is also a huge source of shame. It is NEVER helpful for authorities or parents to shame weight in kids; it leads to lifelong trauma that takes extensive treatment. Nor is it "concern" - kids know already.

It would take more than hugging, but yes he was the model of a authoritarian parent and that creates long-lasting emotional damage in children.

Not every kid who experiences "scared straight" tactics is going to be Donald Trump. But we know that shame in childhood does nothing good. At its worst, it helps create narcissistic personalities.
