Things I learned from Star Wars: The Last Jedi:
• The most heroic acts are those done in defence of others
• The most dangerous people are angsty, power hungry white dudes who pretend to be your friend

I’m sick to death of people being precious about #GMO produce. Functionally there is no difference between a grape bred to have little or no seed and a grape that has been modified in a lab for the same thing. Y’all are just scared of science.

You wanna talk about #Monsanto charging for “licenses” for their crops, ok. Talk about agribusiness killing the planet, ok. Talk about corporations copyrighting genetic code, ok. These are all valid concerns.

But the science is sound.

Intentionally bypassing the methods in place to help people deal with surviving on social media because the author has decided it is important rubs me the wrong way.

If you start a toot with "I'm not adding a CW because I think this is important" then I may think it is important to block your ass.

You don't get to decide what topics people can or can't deal with.
