Kaitlin Bennett is the Kent State "gun girl" who went viral after posting a picture of herself on graduation day with an AR-10 strapped on her back. She's since hung on to her notoriety by posting stupid videos of herself trying to get validation for her anti-trans views. Well, apparently a rumor started that she shit her pants at a party back in 2019 and it just doesn't want to go away.

Precinct annual meetings were held yesterday in Durham.

I never went to one until after Trump. At that time I figured I needed to be active in politics locally and showed up at that meeting in 2017. That year it was held at a library, and I went to the wrong library first and consequently was late getting to the meeting.

If a precinct does not have at least 5 members present at the annual meeting, it is considered disorganized. When I finally showed up at the correct location, my precinct was discussing the fact that they were going to be disorganized, as there were only 4 people there. I made the 5th and we went from there.

Last night 16 people showed up. I was fearful that people were suffering so much from outrage overload that engagement would fall and we might not have enough again but was I ever wrong about that. It was really encouraging.

It was discouraging that everyone was white in a 31% black precinct. The greater Durham political structure does have a more equitable demographic, but I would love to see more diversity at meetings.

could we not concede the wording?

"Pro-life" means anti-abortion, anti-choice, anti-women, pro-forced birth.

or does it? I am pro life, all for it. Please can we call anti-abortionists what they are instead of what they are not? THEY appropriated that term and it's misleading and wrong. If I say pro-life I am not talking about any person who does not respect my bodily autonomy, ever.

take it back, take it away from the other side.

Getting ready to go. #MoralMarch

Watching Amy Klobuchar on Morning Joe
