OCD is horribly misrepresented in the media. Emma Pillsbury, Monica Geller, and Adrian Monk are depictions of stereotypical OCD behaviors rather than representations of actual people with OCD. So here’s a thread about what it’s actually like to live with it:

On the second day of the #ScholarStrike, we are excited to release the #BlackLanguageSyllabus. The BL Syllabus was created by Dr. April Baker-Bell and Dr. Carmen Kynard--two sista-friend-teachers who are here to lift one another up and push toward new Black ways of love and life. https://t.co/QULCuA5OsW

A problem in public education Acceptable language: equity, inclusion, diversity, respect, collaboration Taboo language: white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy, violence, power We're imagining a utopic reality but we're discouraged from discussing the barriers to this reality

excellent new article alert for anyone interested in Black feminist rhetoric, Black women's communicative strategies, & challenges to white dominance of rhetorical timing: Tamika L Carey's latest (& sure to be another instant classic)! @Prof_tlcarey https://t.co/PjVK6TwmgW

Glad to see for #ScholarStrike folks sharing titles authored by Black and other POC authors. But I'd like to remind y'all #BreonnaTaylor is waiting for Justice, as are #AiyannaStanleyJones #MerciMack and many more. Don't just read Black women, stand up for their lives.

Y'all wanna know what Critical Race Theory is? Here's what it is...complete with works cited for further reading. This ban is no joke, I'm here to answer questions. https://t.co/IseCBwfrou

Weird story of the day: Jessica Krug, a white woman from Kansas, has been pretending to be Black for her entire professional career, and now she’s apologizing for it: "I am not a culture vulture. I am a culture leech." https://t.co/p2rBC30Tm8 https://t.co/8PZCfA2YGA

We absolutely must talk about the role that colorism plays in this issue that continues to happen and do real harm to Black people and to anti-racism work and race studies https://t.co/gZywtCHQZM

There are ways to do scholarship on race & to center Black activism in your work as a white person. It’s different than the ways Black scholars do similar work: differently reflective & accountable. But it’s possible. Refusing this position of being called to account is violence.

This resonated with me a lot, especially the metaphor of surge capacity for early-pandemic #adhd feels vs now-feels: https://t.co/PXYoSdUITr

also clarification! 😂 the zoom socials are awesome. I meant that they are great but not enough for an extroverted brain! I miss people!!!

Introduction (titled "New Sensation") for SENSORY EXPERIMENTS is up, thanks to the wonderful folks at @DukePress! Feel so thankful these days. https://t.co/47DAgnYo5V

Read the intro for free online for my awesome friend @upstaterica’s new book, *Sensory Experiments: Psychophysics, Race, and the Aesthetics of Feeling!* Then read the whole thing!! https://t.co/DVlBwHNGeL

so, still spending this much time in my own head is excruciating, y’all introverts how do you do it?! I have like 4 zoom happy hours a week and I am still constantly about to scream at a moment’s notice. teach me your ways

when i speak of care i mean care as interdependence. interdependence is used a lot in disability justice. interdependence is a recognition of shared stakes. rather than i care for you, or you take care of me, we take care together. we are both cared for, and care with.

much love to all my UAlbany friends and others going back to teaching today 💜

New faculty: what is something you wish established members of your dept. knew or understood about you? Here's mine: millennial finances. I've encountered many situations where it's clear that some colleagues have no concept of the choke-hold student debt has on a lot of us.

my wife had to go back to work (academic library) in person this week w/ not enough PPE & she hurts from moving furniture all day between masked meetings & everyone is scrambling to figure anything out. she's the best person & i'm sad and scared. that's it, that's the tweet.

today’s therapy gist: OCD + ADHD is a SUPER FUN COMBO during a time when most forms of stimulation are unavailable & replaced with much danger to obsess and hyperfocus over!!! oh but there’s another option... being super bored, which feels to my brain like being dead inside! 😩

wait so you’re telling me I’m supposed to get through a global pandemic AND everyday late capitalism AND have Healthy Coping Mechanisms? in this economy?!

I am Narcissus and my little zoom square is my lake
