Wednesday Get Over the Hump Free for All
Good morning, Village Meeses! We’ve made it to another Wednesday. It’s Day 83 of the Resistance.
Fair warning, I’m about to dedicate the larger part of today’s posting to a lot of tweets I didn’t write, which make a point that is probably, in this crowd, preaching to the choir. But I wanted to, and so you are stuck.
In the, “tell us something we didn’t know already… oh, you didn’t know?” department:
Al Giordano set off a quiet storm by tweeting this:

@AlGiordano Because we've allowed ourselves to be bullied, denigrated, and devalued in the name of "love." FUCK THAT SHIT. We empower and believe in US.

@AlGiordano Gen X in particular accomplished everything men do. And more. Degrees, career, and family. Plus, the unpaid work of care! We are over it.

@AlGiordano We lived through employers and professors that continually discounted or brains and our worth. And we are done.
