Response to Trueblue Texan (Reply #12)

23. "Complacency" doesn't look like laziness. It looks like concern.

"I don't like the idea of litmus tests for [abortion, women's rights, equal pay] for candidates."

"That's too sensitive to pick up now; we'll have to wait until after the election."

"We certainly can't have free abortion on demand at any time -- we're not barbarians."

"Isolated incidents of people being prosecuted for home abortions or even miscarrying are the extreme, not the norm."

"Well I mean it's terrible that [that addicted person, this poor person] didn't get the care they needed. I'm just not comfortable advocating for free health care for [whatever marginalized identity makes me most uncomfortable, probably coded with race as well], you know?"
