Jessica Calarco is a sociologist, and if you’d like to talk about her behind her back, she requests that you use the pronouns “she” and “her.”
She’s also a mother to two children, at least one of whom is apparently a pretty woke seven-year-old:
We genuinely feel sorry for Jessica’s seven-year-old (assuming she actually has a seven-year-old). We’re inclined to believe that this didn’t actually happen, but if it did, that kid’s in for a pretty rough childhood.
GP Tell me you've irrevocably damaged your child without telling me you've irrevocably damaged your child.

COVID is known to cause damage to some people’s bodies; parents like Jessica Calarco are making sure to take care of inflicting the emotional damage.
And some of that emotional damage can be inflicted by treating children like political tools instead of children. And if that requires making crap up, well, so be it.
Crazy my 4 month old said yesterday “do you think god abandoned us cause he too fears what he created?”

Crazy, my 2 year old just yesterday said “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” https://t.co/1gj2HJjQAS

It’s clinically insane how often these types of tweets happen as if anybody will ever believe them https://t.co/JfpTQwLgyk

Yeah, forgive us for greeting Calarco’s little anecdote with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Lord knows that the COVID pandemic has disrupted the lives of countless kids out there. But encouraging more fear and despair is not the way to help them.
I was taught we were all going to die in a nuclear war, but fortunately I had a mom who convinced me we probably wouldn't and go out and live my best life. https://t.co/9KRmozSlhU

See, that’s what good parenting looks like.
