if you have the censor turned on, most of the following will not make sense.
everyone already knows the white ones matter. you can see that in the US government and judiciary system, among millions of other places. the hashtag is to focus on the black lives...theres no need to derail it with all lives matter ****. and black lives are included in "all lives"....duh. redundant. if you only say that all lives matter as a response when you hear black lives matter, you should look at yourself. you're just trying to shut down BLM. youre literally only using it for derailment and so you dont have to focus on the actual systemic dysfunction when it comes to how black people are treated, specifically in the USA.
and i hate the #bluelivesmatter shit.... they chose that profession. people cant choose their skin colour. a "blue" life isn't comparable to a black life. and social workers go into ~tHe BiG ScaArY GhEtTo~ just like the police and they dont get to shoot whenever they get the heebie jeebies. police get such special treatment and im over it. there are far too many racists unchecked with a badge, a gun, and an overinflated sense of self importance. family violence is 2-4 times higher in the law enforcement community than the general population. thats a **** problem.
land borders are arbitrary and unnecessary
patriotism is foolish, a waste of my time, and also arbitrary and unnecessary
im pro ** work (which is different from trafficking obviously), pro trans people, pro choice, pro religious freedom (stop harassing women in hijab... nuns wear a habit and we let them live dont we? extend the same courtesy to muslim women [and sikh men and anyone who does something you dont do, for sake why do you even care???]) pro immigration (yes, even illegally because borders are ** and we in the US forcefully stole this land and committed genocide for it and humans should be able to migrate), pro healthcare for all, etc. i would much rather my taxes not go to bombing people in other countries for their oil. im happy for it to go to medicare and medicaid and other social programs.
the current president is actual garbage. he literally hates women and brown people... its really obvious. i hope melania gets rich as ** and somehow gets free of him someday. obama was far more likeable and reasonable and rational, but also garbage. we shouldnt be bombing and sending drones to other countries for oil. or under the guise of "spreading democracy" or any of the other reasons these ** men in power have always used.
i hate when people say "well if you hate it then you should just leave"...uh no? im sure people said that to the suffragettes too... "Dont make us change things! we dont want to move forward! let us keep our power and heads in the sand!" the suffragettes were **** btw and pushed black women down so white women would get the right to vote....in some states, black women didnt get the right to vote until the '60s. some states barred native americans from voting until the late '50s. this country is and always has been run by garbage men.
the constitution needs to be rewritten. it was written ** ages ago by some old white ** who literally owned other humans. things need to be updated.
all this is easily google-able and im not down for a debate and im not here to talk you into my beliefs or change your mind. google is free. go use it.
people should be able to do what they want as long as theyre not causing other people harm. people in power should not be passing legislation that stops anyone doing what makes them happy or makes their lives better. the republican and democratic party are two sides of the same grimy, shit caked coin. yall are SO similar.
this comes off as pretty fighty, and thats because im sick to death of so many people on here who just will not see how **** theyre being. there is such a great lack of self awareness on here and a huge lack of empathy for others. obviously not all of us here but.... many who are outspoken. and i dont hate them for it. i feel embarrassed for them a lot. i am frustrated. people should be allowed to live. people dont need your opinion on their life and how they do it if it isnt harming you.
My life and ambitions.
to be so happy and free and fulfilled

My favourite books, TV, music, movies and food.
It's hard to pick faves so the books I've read most recently and enjoyed are: Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor, Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown, and A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki.
My fave TV shows are American Horror Story (I love all the seasons but I do have a mental ranking system), The OC (lmfao its awful and gives me great joy), Parks & Rec (except they hate fat people and **** workers so a lot of their jokes makes me cringe a lot), America's Next Top Model, and Twin Peaks.
My most listened to on Spotify right meow are Cibo Matto, Fleetwood Mac, Julee Cruise, David Bowie, Prince, the Front Bottoms, the Moody Blues, Florence + the Machine, Dead Man's Bones, Lana Del Rey, and Stevie Nicks, not in that order. I KNOW a lot of music but I don't ENJOY a lot of music. too much of it is just wildly repetitive and not dynamic enough.
The coolest places I've visited.
guatemala and seattle and yellowstone national park (and orlando, FL, where im originally from!)
In my free time I like to...
knit, crochet, read, kick a soccer ball with my wife, go geocaching, watch things on netflix, enjoy a certain plant, take walks.
You should send me a message if you..
