With Covid sort of in the rearview mirror, I feel as though all the craziness of those years - I mean all the trampling of basic rights like bodily autonomy - has somehow been very quickly forgotten. Covid aside, terrible things happened. People were silenced, discourse stopped, politicians divided us ON PURPOSE. I don't think that those awful things are gone; they are just waiting for another opportunity to reappear, and entrench themselves further. In the meantime, I think it is super important that we DON'T forget how important honest discourse is - talking to someone who disagrees with you without thinking that they are evil! I often wonder how I can contribute to this, and supporting journalists like Tara and other in the wonderful substack community is one way that I have come up with. Thank you, Tara, for continuing to shine a light on the importance of free speech, bodily autonomy, and open and honest discourse.

I totally agree. We, the public, totally gave in to this overwhelming violation of our Constitutional rights based on lies from our leaders and supported by mainstream media. Never again.

Excellent to hear another strong voice representing both students and democracy. We really lost our minds and need to shine a bright light on the hysterics that drove bad policies and harmed millions. All due to fear and irrationality. Thank you, Tara. Keep it up!

If she thinks that was bad. Just think what will happen if she mentions chicks don't have dicks. Burnt at the stake?
