Reminder that self-care+healing work we do every day to cope with continuous trauma/violence is unpaid emotional labor #GiveYourMoneyToWomen

If “emotional labor” was a thing that actually existed, then someone would pay for it. “Emotional labor” is unverifiable bullshit that women have come up with in an attempt to hide the fact that they aren’t doing any actual productive work. I expect that women will come up with even more absurd ways of saying that they do unpaid work that can’t be verified. That’s because women are mostly in make work jobs so they need to come up with ways to justify their jobs. If women get really desperate, then they might even start complaining how they should be paid for the “free sex” they’re giving men.
