Are you paying attention to what’s happening at the Supreme Court? If not, you need to because our rights AND our lives depend on it. There are multiple instances of carefully crafted lawsuits created specifically to slide up to the Supreme Court. A court which has a 6-3 conservative majority right now: The Sinister 6 and three liberals.
Just by the sheer volume and type of lawsuits, the conservatives are telling us what rights they’d like to strip from women to keep all to themselves. Things like reproductive rights, how and when to have children, and basic life choice autonomy.
When I sold my first candles on Facebook marketplace I was so proud and awestruck that women related to the messages on my candles. I was the first person to put real and raw messages on candles as a way to write our shit down, set our shit on fire and let that shit go. From almost day one the criticism began. “You know what you should do?” without me even asking. Family, friends, strangers, co-workers all telling me what I SHOULD do. I ignored all the advice for a very long time, confident in my ability to pour wax in jars, set up and run a production facility and post the real shit on social media.
