I finally have a better idea what to put on an #introductions.
I generally enjoy the aesthetics of casinos/gambling and especially jesters.
Nothing is more important to me than my friends.
I go through my days pretending like I'm okay. Then every so often I get very harsh reminders of how much I'm still hurting from past traumas.
Multiple people in the past that each broke my heart in different ways. Things I may have contributed to, I don't know.
I may have woken up after more than a decade of being on autopilot waiting for death to take me, but I still am just a walking corpse struggling to keep my heart beating from all the heartache.
The universe is chaos, be kind.

Anyone out there on the fediverse know any good #trans spaces for meeting other trans folks? Asking for a friend.
please stop making fun of:
- people's faces or facial expressions
- people's educations
- people's "intelligence"
- people's speech
- people's bodies or body parts
even if the person you're making fun of is a bad person, you no doubt have friends or will have friends for whom those things are true, and who are worried you think the same things about you.
want to make fun of a lib or a fascist? try this instead:
- make fun of them for being a lib or fascist
- highlight ways they obviously don't believe their own ideology
- throw a dairy-free milkshake on them
General griping about feeling outcast
I hate feeling like an outsider, I hate being made to feel like an outsider by a community that I thought I generally got along with. I hate that my values and opinions seem to do nothing more than ostracize me when I voice them. I am glad for communities where my opinions don't routinely cause me to get shunned or spoken down to. But I don't like that I'm apparently finding myself more and more unwelcome in various places.
Response to the ever deteriorating state of civil rights in America.
Facilitate resistance where possible. Fleeing the country isn't tenable for any but the most privileged. We have to fight this here and now. The state will not help us. Get prepared to break the law.
Seriously consider where your community will come down on this. Start that dialog now if you have not. It is vital to create geographic communities of solidarity from which we can resist the force of casual violence and discrimination. Fascism is at the door and we have to organize meaningful resistance now.
Literally just got told that to a major corporation a "minor profit" is just as bad to them as a major loss.
I'm astounded at that line of logic.
