I’m sure there’s so many things that you and I would argue about, and frankly I’d rather not have those arguments because I think you’re a very very skilled rhetorician, and I think that when one is very good at arguing, sometimes you can win arguments without necessarily being right.

Also beware or fake clinics run by religious groups where they lie to pregnant people and spread misconceptions about abortion to trick them into keeping their fetus. They also promise them help and resources that never materialize. These people are the devil and will only care about and your fetus until you give birth, once that happens they wash their hands.
A couple of short documentaries on the subject:
- The Fake Abortion Clinics Of America: Misconception
- Crisis Pregnancy Centers: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Response for when the far-right pick a fight by spewing ignorant divisive bollocks, then claim that they're being 'bullied', or 'cancelled', or 'oppressed' or 'silenced' when other people argue back or criticise them for said bollocks.
controversial take maybe but disabled people reporting workers (underpaid or not) for being ableist towards them e.g. literally endangering their health and safety is not "problematic" even if you see it as antithetical to leftism lol like if u seriously expect disabled people (especially those w/o jobs and/or are on benefits) to just sit there and stomach violence being enacted against them for the sake of working class solidarity or w/e then fuck you honestly.
for some reason it pisses me off seeing people in power saying “this isn’t america”.
like YES IT is, it LITERALLY IS dont try and disassociate your country from the white supremacists who’ve been terrorising POC/ LGBTQ+ people for years just because it’s now all over the news.
i gEt that it’s not what america is supposed to stand for (in some way), and it’s not representative of all citizens (obviously) but when you say that, it’s like you’re rejecting any responsibility for the actions of people in Your country under Your jurisdiction as if Your president hasn’t been empowering them for the last 4 fucking years
