Happy Friday the 13th!
Welcome to #Cammunity Chatter, an occasional roundup of some of the best and sassiest social media statements that speak.
We’re kicking off this week’s chat fest with a very regrettably relatable tweet from Janice Griffith:
my period is destroying my body while the news is destroying my psyche
— janice (@rejaniced) April 11, 2018
Your sentiment is too true, Janice. Nothing makes a terrible news cycle worse than one’s raging period. The pain both things cause is real.
Next is a totally honest tweet from Fat Gal Yonce:
I read somewhere about how people who say they’re “brutally honest” are more interested in the brutality than the honesty….
— fat gal yonce (@ThickLeeyonce) April 9, 2018
…and she’s right! We’ve never interacted with a “brutally honest” person who doesn’t enjoy causing irritation or pain. Honesty is a great quality. Brutality, however, is not.
Sydney Leathers provided a bit of hilarity regarding men on the internet:
men on the internet, sarcastically: I bet your parents are soooo proud of you

Too true — and may we add Way to go, Sydney!
If you haven’t read Sydney Leathers’ piece on The Washington Post, it’s 100 percent worth it. You can click through to it via this tweet:
Perspective: "I know what Stormy Daniels is going through. I went through it, too." https://t.co/9bzVRwNfiJ

We also would like to reiterate Riley Reyes’ sentiment (via her RT of Jessica Fappit):

John Oliver is more than qualified to talk about political issues in a funny, relatable way. We hope Oliver catches wind of this tweet and considers tackling the issue on his show.
And lastly, a bit of advice about meditation via this chain of tweets from Ginger Banks:
My attitude of reaction to a situation is the only thing I can truly control in this world. Realizing that, while practicing meditation has changed my life. I remember driving to California one time and screaming at the people going slow in the left lane the whole 6 hour drive…

She’s right. A simple daily meditation session can truly take the bite out of bad experiences. We all should take a pledge to calm our minds via meditation.
Also, because this day (date) is awesome — and because we love Missy Martinez:
