Vaccines, Angry 

Fuck it, let's see a freedom-loving state with a republican governor steal some J&J doses from other states and administer them to willing participants. If you're gonna be a contrarian jackass, you might as well save a few lives once in a while

Vaccines, Angry 

Calling this an "abundance of caution" is fucking ridiculous when ~10 people will die of this disease in Minnesota *today*. This is alarmist ass-covering that will make the task of convincing the vaccine-skeptical that much harder: content.govdelivery.com/accoun

Not campaigning today for reasons that would require a cw to describe, so I made some art, commissioned by @t54r4n1

MN Vaccine Progress 

Vaccine doses administered keeps creeping up week after week, but we still haven't seen the sharp increase in supply that has been suggested at by state and federal sources.

Just over 2 million Minnesotans, 47.3% of the 16+ population, have received at least one vaccine dose

Police Killings 

Daunte Wright should still be alive today.

George Floyd should still be alive today.

Philando Castile should still be alive today.

And so many others. Fuck.

Question about gender and pronouns 

@firewally here is a related thread for you: tl;dr not that beginner, actually, of a question. mspsocial.net/@t54r4n1/1059068

Question about gender and pronouns 

Hi I have what's probably a very beginner-level question about pronouns, feel free to tell me off if this is dumb or insensitive

When folks use a mix of pronouns in their bio like [they/he], [him/her], [she/they], should I assume that the first one listed is preferred? Or that either pronoun-type is equally valid? Or something else?

Covid in MN 

Hey @atTimWalz, you're passing this class with a C-minus and I don't think you should be too proud of yourself just because the rest of the class flunked out.

Covid in MN 

Quote from the article:

'His caveat is if hospitals become overrun, officials will take “appropriate steps necessary.” '

What if, and hear me out here, we took appropriate steps necessary to stop the horrible virus anyway? Even *before* we're at the brink of widespread death and illness

Covid in MN 

Something about this just keeps bugging me. We should be trying to minimize sickness and harm, not managing our open ICU beds as tokens to be spent.

Really feels like Walz wants to do the minimum to prevent hospital system collapse, other consequences be damned

He's in Los Angeles, but someone should absolutely do this in Minneapolis and other places
