Good evening, space travelers! I rewatched Hunger Games last night and it was just perfect. You know how sometimes you rewatch a favorite movie, but maybe it’s too close to the last time you saw it? Or your heart’s just not in the right place to see the film with the same feelings you had the first time around, so it ends up just feeling too nostalgic or too far away? Well this was nothing like that. It was a very satisfying rewatch and I think I’ll run it right into the ground by watching Catching Fire tonight!
Queer as in F*ck You

+ Lost Mothers is a database of 700 to 900 women in the U.S. who died from pregnancy-related causes in 2016. ProPublica is updating the database as they gather new information. The U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate of any country in the developed world, and because there are no federal regulations for reporting maternal deaths and their connections to childbirth, allowing hospitals to self-report them as childbirth-related (or, you know, never report them as such), most of them go uncounted and unexplained. If you can’t or won’t track a problem, you can’t fucking fix it.
+ You Have a Lot to Teach Your Grandkids so maybe that’s the deal with menopause.
+ Maxine Waters Loves You. I am paraphrasing.
Saw This, Thought of You
