To make this as clear as can be: If you have a textbook perfect cycle, if your period is 2 days late you are 30 days pregnant. This is a total abortion ban.

SB 1553 would ban abortion in Oklahoma after 30 days. legiscan.com/OK/bill/SB1553/…

Y'all didn't think the logic Fulton v. City of Philadelphia would stop at the LGBTQ community, did you? No. See. The theocratic bigot brigade hates *all sorts* of people.

I think one of the most impactful things Peloton could do to make the experience stickier/more addictive is to improve the social aspect. Until then can you jerks just high five me back plz?? 👋

My all time favorite kids book which honestly has been better than therapy for my own body image issues is Bodies Are Cool which tackles this obliquely as part of general acceptance of the myriad ways we manifest.

Equality = giving every household the same number of tests Equity = adjusting the # of tests given based on household size, whether there are structurally or medically vulnerable household members, etc. Justice = free tests for all, accessible to all

Any favorite resources (either guidance for adults or kid books) on talking to toddlers about gender? There are so many signals he’s getting that I want to counter (about what boys vs. girls do, categorizing gender as binary, etc), and he’s very curious about it.

This is amazing!
Today @legupcare we launched The Child Care Concierge, the only platform that matches #workingparents to #childcare that fits their needs and guides them through the entire enrollment process. Now available in #Seattle. A thread 👇🏾

The wording of their statement all but confirms what we already thought. It doesn't deny anything that was actually reported (that *Roberts*, not Sotomayor, asked him to wear a mask, and that she's staying home because he refuses). nytimes.com/2022/01/19/us/po…

"Missed connections" is a gentle way to put it! My co-founders Natalie, @clrom and I started trying to hire Evelyn to lead Paradigm with us back in 2016. Never give up on your dreams!
Replying to @drevvycarter
i started as a senior consultant at @prdgm in january 2019 (after a long road of missed connections with @joelle_emerson). over the last 3 years, our company has grown in such exciting ways, and i'm thrilled to help lead us into this next phase of growth and DEI impact! 7/7

We think data-driven, evidence-based DEI should be accessible and scalable, whether organizations are analyzing their data and crafting DEI strategies (paradigmiq.com/blueprint) or engaging and upskilling their workforce with training (paradigmreach.com). 8/

A lot of early-career startup employees are afraid of getting layered with a more senior leader hired above them. So was I when it happened to me. It took me awhile to look back and understand it from the founder/CEO perspective. A quick thread on getting layered. 🧵
