Alright, I wrote a long thing, and I am going to publicly post the link.

This started as a two sentence mastodon post...and then I just kept going.

It isn’t a sharp polished piece, but merely a look into my head right now as I exist as a white trans lesbian in the PNW of the US.

If we sat down and had a conversation, and you just let me talk for 10 or 15 minutes, this is what I might say, except I would say “like” a lot.

Content warnings for fascism, transphobia, cults, GRS, USpol, and just general darkness.

I am not really even sure who the audience for this piece is, beyond people who are interested in what I think.

I do want to say that yes, this country has always been terrible. Yes, every president was bad (a children’s book I want to write someday, btw). But I don’t think that any of the awfulness of history precludes the possibility that we are hanging on a new precipice now.

Is it allergy season right now? I have never had to deal with allergies before but the last 4-6 weeks have brought a bunch of allergy-adjacent symptoms

sometimes i feel like things would be a lot easier if i were ace

but i'm not!

self reminder. maybe for you too 

it's okay to take up space in other people's life and in conversation. is okay to ask for attention. is okay to initiate contact.

i don't know why people keep claiming Brood War is well-balanced, when it's transparently obvious that the Protoss got screwed in the most important area:
