    i had to work hard to make sure the similarly corrosive take of “only few people in the world make their own food” also fit in the screenshot

    btw the vaccine in question is a cancer treatment (ie. not a preventative/immunization) similar to another one already also used in the US and is currently undergoing clinical trials in the US.

    Losing Miranda Rights protections wasn’t on my 2022 bingo card yet here we are….

    Because what America really needs right now is less ability to hold cops personally accountable for their actions

    So this means that you do still have the right to remain silent.

    You just now cannot sue if you are not told your rights.

    Unfortunately, this will mostly harm those unaware of their rights. So will deeply, and mostly, effect uneducated people and those unfamiliar with U.S. laws (such as new immigrants).

    They (cops) are not only further protected, but now are allowed to not tell you when you have that right. Which honestly can just be confusing for anyone.

    It’s fucked up and definitely targets marginalized individuals, in addition to protecting cops. Double lose.

    The Supreme Court does not care about us.

    Now more than ever: DO NOT TALK TO COPS.

    If you are taken into custody for Anything, you invoke your right to a lawyer (“I am invoking my right to a lawyer. Here is my lawyer’s number/Please assign me a public defender.”)

    Then you shut the fuck up. “I am invoking my right to remain silent.” Do not make small talk. Do not answer ANY questions. If at any point you do (like to ask for the bathroom, a drink, etc) immediately repeat that you are invoking your right to silence. They will try to get you to talk. They’re allowed to try to get you to break your silence, and they will do so. They’ll make you wait for the lawyer.

    Every cop show ever has taught you that getting a lawyer looks guilty, and I’m telling you that’s propaganda. Get the fucking lawyer. Even if they just want a statement out of you, even if you called them. Get the lawyer. Shut up.

    Unlike the other clusterfuck decisions being handed down this month, this one does not take away a right we had already.  It’s about not being able to sue cops for violating suspects’ rights.  Which is bullshit, but is not remotely new.  

    The right to remain silent is still in place, and the court specifically said that the remedy for a violation of that right is exclusion of that evidence from the criminal trial.  So now more than ever: DO NOT TALK TO COPS.

  • Reminder that these measures will not be put in place if Roe v Wade does not go through
  • Reminder that SCOTUS seems more preoccupied with preventing protestors from peacefully demonstrating outside of their homes than Roe v Wade. This also sets a dangerous precedent. Like. Some serious Orwellian shit.
  • THIS IS ALSO ALREADY A LIVED REALITY FOR BLACK, INDIGENOUS, AND PEOPLE OF COLOR IN AMERICA.
  • BLACK WOMEN ARE 3x MORE LIKELY TO DIE DURING CHILDBIRTH THAN WHITE WOMEN.
  • INDIGENOUS WOMEN HAVE BEEN GETTING FORCIBLY STERILIZED FOR DECADES.
  • YOUR DYSTOPIA IS ALREADY REAL FOR OTHERS.
  • America has been committing crimes against humanity for hundreds of years.
  • People also told me I was alarmist for thinking Roe v Wade would get blasted by SCOTUS in 2016.
  • This is a SLOW ROLL. That's HOW THIS [Read: FASCISM] HAPPENS.
  • READ THE REPLIES I HAVE REPOSTED SEVERAL ARTICLES GOING INTO HOW ROE V WADE CAN LEAD TO A CONTRACEPTION BAN REGARDLESS OF INDIVIDUAL STATES REFERENCED IN THIS TWEET. YOU CAN FIND IT HERE.

    THERE ARE PEOPLE DOING OTHER RESEARCH INTO EACH POTENTIAL POLICY.

    like people are just going to keep saying “theyre only queer because they want to be/because it gets them off/because they think it’s fun/because they saw a queer person and thought it sounded like a good idea/etc. theyre gonna keep saying it

    and we are going to have to stop desperately scrambling to say noooo, they have to be like that, they have no choice, they wouldn’t be like this if they didnt have to. we HAVE to stop falling all over ourselves assuring straight people and transphobes that we hate being us as much as they hate us being us, that we are suffering and that’s why we deserve this decadence and deviancy. we HAVE to start saying “yeah ok and?”

    being queer is a delight. deviant sex makes people really happy. being genderfucky is joyful. queerness CAN actually be an option you can choose, and that doesn’t make it worth less than if you only picked it with a gun to your head, because it is a good option and there are good reasons to pick it.
