On this episode, Ren reminds us that where there’s smoke, there’s probably a dumpster fire composed entirely of racists kicked off of Twitter.
Parler is a social media platform aimed at conservatives, where the only rules are: no crimes, no bots, and no pottymouths? Anyway, Parler is truly a beacon on the hill crying out: “Give me your antivaxxers, your violent extremists, your huddled masses yearning to scream bigotry, the wretched refuse of the internet shore.” And, honestly? You can have ’em. Featuring Thanksgiving debacles, Milfs For Trump, and a word we cannot have anywhere in this description.
Self Care Plan
Social media. It’s a thing.
- Turn off notifications and uninstall apps. Constant interruptions in the form of push notifications can be anxiety-inducing to the extreme. Turn notifications off and consider uninstalling social media apps from your phone. You can still use and enjoy social media but it doesn’t have to intrude into every minute of your life, much like unwanted dick pics
- Consider a cleanse. No, not a shitty fake juice cleanse that just makes you poop more. Just taking a conscious break every once in a while is a good idea. Try putting your phone away in the evenings, or a weekend a month. Anything to get away from another person trying to suggest yoga for your chronic illness.
- Unfollow! Don’t be afraid to clear out the garbage. Your aunt Nancy that keeps posting about “hating the sin, but loving the sinner?” That dude you knew in college who comments on all of your pics from three years ago about how “he wouldn’t mind hitting that?” Your former coworker that shares articles from website like vegangreentruthwholehealth.com? Unfriend! Unfollow! Yeet them from your feed, you won’t regret it.
