    At the same time, we also hope you are safe and comfortable, so, are they also seeing a counselor/therapist/support group? Or, when you say guide, it is only you they talk about this? @rolivia128

    @flameaura Coke is pretty good, doesn’t change taste when you are in the throat-pain phase, guess applies to most sodas. For the rest, I go with junk food and meds, focusing on the ones to slow down congestion so you can sleep at night.

    Okay, then you, your friends, and Bill Clinton, too, anyone into non consensual groping and defending people who do it. I don’t talk like that with my friends, fuck anyone who pushes that on me, and reinforces rape culture.

    Stop saying it’s boys’ talk, groping people while being confident that they will just take it because you are in a position of power/fame is not boys’ talk, you are a rapist if you say that, you are an accomplice if you defend that. Fuck you for normalizing sexual assault, over and over, to try to silence your conscience.
