Happy Thursday, my gorgeous fediversians.
Remember, you are under no obligation to be kind to people that mean you harm. You do not owe civility to anyone that denies your basic human right to exist safely.
It is pointless to attempt to reason with a person that is resigned to believe your suffering is necessary and your pain in inevitable.
Resist that falsehood. Use a bat if you have to.
You matter. Your safety and well being matter.
