In the early days of the Trump Administration, senior advisor Kellyanne Conway used what would become an iconic phrase during a interview. Defending demonstrably false statements made by Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, Conway told NBC's Chuck Todd that Spicer was giving "alternative facts." A rather stunned Todd replied, "Look, alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods." Wikipedia entry
Not too long afterwards, I began posting "uncomfortable facts" to my Facebook page in an attempt to take advantage of the notoriety generated by the phrase. My hope is to use the hashtag to help foster discussions on topics connected to trauma, abuse, and other controversial topics that are often hard for us to talk about. I'll keep "pinning" them here from time to time.
