When I look back on the ways our parents didn’t consider us to be property I realize how unbelievably lucky we were. Privacy is hardbaked into my conception of a family. We look after each other and leave each other the fuck alone, and those actions co-exist without difficulty.

Two generations of not being required to do math for real world situations have really fucked up the American Health care shitstem. You try to explain exponential growth on the basis of R 2.5 and doubling every 6 days and you LITERALLY have people tell you that you don’t understand math and you’re an alarmist. The person providing the info TEACHES MATHEMATICS AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL. The other person is an antivaxxer.

We shall see what becomes of the antivaxx movement after Darwin’s latest winnowing fan comes through.
