@cfrangou this is what they think of women’s mental and physical life now in many GOP led states. So dystopian and terrifying. Depending on who wins the election in 2024 may be a further brutal assault on women and their bodies. I can’t imagine having to worry each election that my neighbours vote decides my choices about my body. So scary for our women next door 😞 #handmaidstale

Whenever I watch this scene, I want to scream, "RUN TO YOUR RIGHT!"

@georgetakei Thanks! A pull quote with hashtags, to get more eyeballs on it:

“For this new brand of #Republican #extremism that Trump helped unleash, the Dobbs decision was just one step toward an even larger endgame.

Eradicating #abortion from the nation—imposing their morality on every American regardless of state or individual beliefs—is the true goal.”

@chrisgeidner Florida seems to be rapidly approaching a point that is far beyond the worst imaginings in #HandmaidsTale how long will people endure this? Are they cheering it on? What’s tragic is so many other places seem to be following suit not just in America. This toxic message seems to be out of control.

@JugglingWithEggs The next step in this is ‘dress according to your gender’ and the jobsworths will decide what is appropriate. No women in jeans, trousers, arms to be covered, nothing lower than a round neck. No men in kilts, or djbella etc unless they are priests - then they can wear all the dresses they want. They can shove this sexist nonsense where the sun doesn’t shine. #HandmaidsTale

#Gilead is coming! Margaret Atwood already knew it 1985. In Idaho rapists can sue abortion providers, "abortion trafficking" is a crime for minors without parental consent, wait until every woman can be convicted for crossing state borders to have an #abortion. #whitesupremacy and #patriarchy want to control biological reproduction for war and wage exploitation, want to suppress #nonbinary #autonomy by state power.

@Coachmark I doubt they care. Being in charge and being total vandals, who can write whatever rules they want seems to be their MO. USA is in dangerous times and what is happening there has a horrible tendency to spread to other places like UK. Sadly, it seems the US Justice system isn’t controlling this madness. Not just #HandmaidsTale but racism, slavery, poverty and more happening. It’s not #Democracy and has no respect for others.

❤️ Artist: #EternalPossessions in City: #NewYorkCity Allen and Stanton Streets, USA 🇺🇸 - Title: "Blessed Be My Basic Human Rights" - (Gesegnet seien meine #Grundrechte ) - #Streetart #Art #Mastoart #Mural #Pasteup #HumanRights #Handmaidstale #WomensRights #ElisabethMoss

Streetartwall. On a white outer wall between two large green plants is pasted the pasteup of the main character from the series The Handmaid's Tale. The pasteup shows the main character Offred of the world famous novel. She is wearing her typical red dress and the ancient white hat. She is looking at us. Above her is the lettering: "Blessed Be My Basic Human Rights" in block letters that look as if they were cut out of a newspaper.
Info: "The Handmaid's Tale" is a 1985 dystopian novel by Margaret Atwood. In a dictatorial future, all women are infertile and banished to the home. A few fertile women are assigned to rich men as childbearing machines. Here, under the supervision of the wives and with cult-like rules, they are to conceive and get children.
The novel was filmed several times and ultimately became world famous through a series and is unfortunately actual again.

@NataliaArmyOf1 #MargaretAtwood in #HandmaidsTale foretold a lot of where some American States are going; but even she missed this level of control. Apps to check the menstrual cycles of perfect strangers, but those same perfect strangers are never allowed to mention they menstruate in discussion in an educations facility, or anywhere really. How do people purchase tampons, pads etc? Do they have to use code, or mime?

@punko The three books in that Dystopian series are prescient and terrifying indeed. As is #HandmaidsTale. Atwood is an exceptional writer.

CW: Michael Knowles telling people HOW a woman should and should not speak. Also NSFW language
I suspect next he'll be telling us WHEN we can speak... just like they do in a #theocracy

From the HuffPost article linked:
That’s not a word fit for a lady,” Knowles said to laughs. “That’s not the way ladies should speak. And we’re going to be talking about how ladies should speak here tonight.”

Absolutely crossed the line. Their “pro-life” line makes no sense when it comes to their desire to murder women.

Just a note to American law makers.
The Handmaid’s Tale is not a how to manual.

@MJmusicinears 😳 That is like something from the #HandMaidsTale on #Hulu!

I guess the only difference is that the women volunteered to make babies for the Nazis & willingly signed away all rights to their kids.

@bleakfuture I first read #HandmaidsTale in my early late teens or 20s. All of her books. She shaped my politics, that’s for sure.

My father once told me my politics would change as I got older. Too bad he didn’t live long enough to see how wrong he was. If anything, I become more progressive and left leaning even in my 60’s. Especially since tfg was elected.

And now with all the kooky #ultramaga in Congress.

Unfortunately it’s starting to seep into #canadian politics too.

They came for the trans girls but I didn't do anything because I'm not trans.

Then they came for the lesbians but I didn't do anything because I'm not a lesbian.

Mark my words... the #ChristianTaliban will not stop until they make the U.S. into #Gilead and a version of The #HandmaidsTale

#WomensRights intersect with the rights of #TransWomen and gay women.

@eosfpodcast @medium the #HandmaidsTale literally just takes the historical reproductive experiences of Black & indigenous women and spins it into a dystopia w white victims. June is straight up a white Harriet Tubman. For some reason, that’s what it takes to get people to care.

Also, #JamesBaldwin wrote some interesting things on why we don’t need fantastical horror in “The Devil Finds Work.” This whole topic was my Cambridge dissertation 😂🤓

hitler could have won if he did not make tactical mistakes and over stretch.

he had many western sympathisers.

there are intelligent men in positions of power who want christo fascist minority rule backed by billionaires who want low taxes and wage slavery.

i am under no belief that good triumphs.


True revolution comes from true revulsion; when things get bad enough the kitten will kill the lion.
Banning Gay rights, 
Subjugating Women 
stopping abortion
undermine science
undermine elections
meld church and state
hate other faiths

June: it’s changing, Luke. This country is changing

Luke: no, Canada is not Gilead

June: America wasn’t Gilead until it was, and then it was too late.

Basically #science #religion and the battle between them, with #philosophy thrown in - seen through the eyes of 19th century life of women. In some way more terrifying than #HandmaidsTale because this stuff really happened.

Well, #HandmaidsTale is over but I feel like maybe it’s not? Definitely feels like they could come back in a few years and pull a Dexter with a wrap up season. Or maybe a full length film.

@kathygriffin at 9pm i’ll switch over to watch #handmaidstale to get more ideas for resistance.

Still complacent about UK #abortionrights?

If so, wake up. Or NEVER complain if you're suppressed next

Who do you think threw $ at creating #Brexit?
