PSA FOR THOSE IN DC AREA - PLEASE STOP FEEDING BIRDS (JUNE 2021)
An unknown transmittable illness is wiping out many native birds. Bird feeders, particularly uncleaned ones, are a major transmitter of disease. Please take them down for the meantime! Your birds will survive naturally without it - the impact of your ‘help’ could be far worse!

rush limbaugh’s in hell now where he belongs 💖 here are some of his greatest hits, beyond him just being a far-right trump-loving conservative, so everybody will know why we’re all celebrating his death:
he constantly made fun of gay men for dying throughout the entire AIDS crisis. it was literally his main running joke. he regularly gave joyful “AIDS updates” while playing a happy love song in the background, and would read off the names of dead gay people while playing whistles and air horns
he was literally the person who popularized the word “feminazi”
article: Rush Limbaugh Says “Rape Police” Left Cares Too Much About Consent + him constantly saying consent isn’t a thing and his whole “no means yes” speech
article: Rush Limbaugh Says the Obamas Need to Get Over Slavery Already
he called BLM a “hate group” and “terrorists”
he compared gay men to pedophiles and said the lgbt movement was also trying to “normalize pedophilia”
he said there are too many black men in sports and that “the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons”
he said champion quarterback donovan mcnabb is “overrated because he’s black”
he made fun of michael j fox for having parkinson’s
he called chelsea clinton a “dog” when she was 12 years old
and all these are just the tip of the iceberg. he was a popular radio host for decades and fed millions of people racism, misogyny, homophobia, etc, and i bet an argument could be made about him being one of the main voices who radicalized the american far-right
so........ i think we should give him the exact same respect he gave all the gay people who died in the AIDS crisis

if the phrase “people with uteruses” sends you into a blind rage because you think it’s “dehumanizing” I would like you to remember all of the trans mascs who have died (while being dehumanized, abused, and exploited) from a lack of access to reproductive care because that care was only accessible to people who are legally women.
trans mascs shouldnt die because of cis women’s discomfort over 3 words

saying “transitioning increases mental illness” is like saying “hard hats increase your chances of getting a traumatic brain injury”
you are more likely to be mentally ill when you’re alive seeking care and not in an urn on mom’s nightstand
cis people need to stop lying to vulnerable young trans people
