I lost the link, but read on Twitter that girls under 10 are coming into the hospitals in Ukraine with rectal/vaginal tearing.

And of course older girls and women are also being raped regularly.

Turns out everyone knows exactly what it means to be a woman/girl when they want to rape us.

I have daughters this age and I’ve genuinely considered what we would do if we were in this situation with my husband off fighting and me alone with the children as the Russians surrounded us. There are no good options.

My great great grandmother (supposedly) poisoned the coffee of the soldiers who took over her farm. I shudder to think what horrors her family underwent before she did that.

I love your granny. A woman after my own heart. True story. A friend was helping me weed the yard in the spring and was taking out all of the nightshade. I stopped her and told her to let it grow in an isolated corner of the yard. “After all, you never know when you might have to poison somebody.” She thought I was nuts, but truly, you never know.

Apparently some Ukrainian women poisoned some bread that they gave to Russian troops.
