Coming out, boosts welcome
Today is coming out day, and just remember that you don't need to come out if you know you aren't going to be safe if you do. You are still valid and wonderful and I know you will become yourself when it is right for you. You don't need to rush.
If you do come out and it goes badly and you lose your family, guess what: I'M YOUR FAMILY NOW AND I LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT.
uspol, musings on due process
reminder: if due process is revoked for one group -- illegal immigrants, for example -- it can be revoked for everyone. All the government has to do is say you're an illegal immigrant. You say, "but I'm not, and I can prove it" -- but prove it to who?? the government doesn't have to give you a chance to prove it, that's what revoking due process *means.*
But of course, most people who say it's okay to revoke illegal immigrants' due process are white. so.
ranting about liberals
All these liberals reacting to Trump being racist being all "This is a low point in our nation's history" can fuck off.
Genocide. Slavery. The Tuskeegee experiment. Weapons sales. The various dictators installed by this country. Guantanamo. Wake the fuck up this isn't new.
If anything, Trump is the very embodiment of amerikkkan ideals. He's an old, cishet, white, rich, sexist, racist, fascist, capitalist piece of shit, just like the precious founding fathers.
Finished setting up and populating my bookshelves, purchased and assembled a desk, donated all my leftover boy clothes, hung a mirror (twice) (don't ask), set up the now vacant second bedroom as a zendo until I can find a room mate, prepared my kamidana to set up tomorrow (can't do it today, it's an unlucky day for such things), made a cable hider and device power station, and only cried a little when listening to therapy podcasts.
That's a pretty decent Saturday.
Cuz I got one hand in my pocket
and the other one's composing an awesome toot
Living on stolen Chinook land.
