this is probably right

my first and hopefully last ashley feinberg-lite Twitter Investigation was on the heels of this wild ass thing where jacobin's connor kilpatrick was hinting that "everyone on the left was talking about/secretly into" this laughably transphobic piece that literally ran in "the american conservative"

i was scrolling through various people's likes in a frenzy of Online and saw that elizabeth bruenig liked the author of the american conservative's tweets immediately following the release of the piece, meaning that barring explicit recantation she is firmly in my ledger as a Crypto-Transphobe

but yeah idk. i go back and forth between a kind of grim pragmatism about this (like, what if the only way to get these vital policies in place is to give platforms to people who are palatable if only because they suck in other extremely important ways) and just like.......total disappointment, hating everything, etc

did she like anti-trans tweets/about his article or just generic shit? she's friendly with conservatives writers, most of whom are bigoted in various ways. while that's not great, it doesn't mean she agrees with them on these things outside of like abortion (and again, which her anti-abortion seems like a personal belief rather than state-enforced kind of belief since she loves pro-choice politicians like Bernie and Nader)

the woman who wrote the piece tweeted out a meme or something the day after it came out / the conversation was sort of blowing up around it that was jokingly like "screw the haters" and breunig liked it

anymore i just try not to think about any of this stuff, i deleted my twitter account and like, if she's not openly advocating for something hateful it doesn't really matter but still, i am cursed with this knowledge, and now you are too

such a weird thing to be tolerated on the left in 2019. "personally I think gay people are real gross, and I will publicly state that, but politically I obviously support candidates who support LGBTQ rights"

abortion is not wrong and contributing to the culture of shame around it by publicly stating you are "against it" is bad. shaming poor people as a privileged person is gross. it's fine to be against it. you just don't seek an abortion. no statement required. join operation rescue if you want to go public.

most of these catholic convert type socialists really gross me out. if I were to armchair analyze it seems they are just doing a dressed up version of that teenage libertarian type shit of "well actually I am fiscally conservative butttt socially liberal you see" how unique and broad and interesting you are! she's a good writer though.

maybe it's just her actual position that she adopted based on her beliefs and not just to posture

Listening to this week's "left, right, and center" (I know, I know) and Liz Bruenig just said "I have a HUGE soft spot for the space force, I'm extremely pumped for the space force. I mean, should we be heading into space with a militant foot forward? Probably not, I would prefer a more peaceable approach to space. But, I mean, putting a greater emphasis on getting into space and expanding our horizons in that direction is really cool."
