Welcome to #Cammunity Chatter, an occasional roundup of some of the best and sassiest social media statements that speak.
We’ve almost made it — 2018 is nearly over. We want to take a moment to check-in before the year’s end to celebrate your tweeted sass.
First off, we’ve got Lux Alptraum preaching the absolute truth about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, also known as OCD.
A lot of my OCD worries are things that have a loose connection to a normal human worry, which tricks me into thinking they're a normal thing to be concerned about even as they spin off into something completely disconnected from reality.

As a fellow OCD-haver, I can say, without a doubt, that I hear you, Lux! OCD is one of the trickiest things to get a handle on because it takes a normal worry and allows it to snowball. I like how she keeps her thoughts in check, though. Keep fighting the good fight!
Next, we’ve got a frightening wakeup call from Alex Coal.
My ride showed up when security did and I have a shoot early in the morning.
So I texted everything to them, including his photo. We'll see if they do anything.
Just be careful guys.

Holy shit, Alex. I’m happy you were able to get away from this creep safely. Also, it’s incredible you were able to report the man. It just goes to show that danger can lurk anywhere. Thank you for the reminder. We’re happy you’re safe!
Thick Leeyonce has an insightful thought concerning how society tends to police women’s bodies.
Society policing womens bodies will neva not be weird. If you’re a woman, a day doesn’t go by without being reminded wat & how u should be…wen we dnt conform to societal standards, we are labeled & shamed…this is a reminder that YOU are so much more than wat dey label u as! pic.twitter.com/XVROmX4vK7

She’s right. And it is weird. All women are beautiful and powerful. And society can F right off.
Next, Catjira considers the way society views women as they age.
I wish women were looked at the same by society when they age 🤷♀️ https://t.co/citT5CvGKY

I mean, she’s not wrong,
And finally, a sweet tweet from Melody Kush, aka Mel Kushmas. (Yay for cute seasonal name fun!)
I can't tell you how good it feels to know that I'm being HONEST and people are seeing the value in my work 🙏 I'm so happy I could cry 😭
But I won't cuz I have a photoshoot in 30 mins 😅

Congrats, Mel! Being seen for the talented person you are is fantastic. I hope we all get a healthy dose of that in 2019.
