This question is yesterday’s news…
It’s 30 years ago news for Peri Johnson.
It’s hundreds of years of news for women around the world.
It’s hundreds of years of us turning our backs on women of color, who fight on.
It’s decades of trans people being kicked aside.
It’s churches at their core.
It’s LGBTQ people being silenced.
It’s today’s agenda for abusers.
It’s today’s defense strategy for dv victims.
It’s white conservative women’s (and too many progressive women’s) internalized misogyny.

This question is yesterday’s news…yesterday’s vote and the recent SCOTUS vote.
Victim blaming. Fuck that.
