With the world seemingly going to shit (aka continuing in the downward spiral since the election of King Cheeto McFasist) it's important to allow yourselves moments to breathe. Simply breathe. Oh, and acknowledge your fucking privilege, because honestly- some CANT BREATHE.
Despite my 'otherness' I possess immense privilege. I am white/cis passing, able bodied, educated, decently mentally stable, and hail from an upper middle class family. All of these things mean that places and space are automatically held for me. They also mean that I am able to step back and fall into the shadows when the fight becomes too much- THIS IS NOT A LUXURY AFFORDED TO THOSE WHOS LITERAL LIVES ARE ON THE LINE. And while I am not proud of my ability (and at times willingness) to fall back and disappear, I feel it's important to acknowledge this passive form of privilege.
Thank you to everyone who continues to fight, continues to stand tall in the face of nazis, those refusing to back down, those who carry on when it seems fucking impossible- you are the real backbone and grit of this country. I see you, I commend you and I promise to do more than just lend my words to this fight. And can we PLEASE do more to recognize the direct attack TWOC are facing? These women were the ones brave enough to launch the first brick at Stonewall, and yet they are ignored- in life and most certainly in death... More coming on this.
PS- this may seem like an odd picture to pair with these words... But let's be honest, half ya'll only care about seeing people in their underwear and couldn't give two shits what people have to say. I know how this game works.

    I was deeply absorbing, processing & receiving every single word of your write up on this, then I got to the PS & cracked up. Hilarious, sad & true altogether πŸ˜• Thank you for your nakedness πŸ™πŸ½ And yes, I'm referring to your *emotional+social+personal* nakedness, not the physical πŸ’”βœ¨

    I enjoy your "I give no fucks" attitude in your posts. It's refreshing when someone with a brain harbors that attitude.

    @mejustbeinme3378 no need for thanks my friend, I wish more people would speak out about this. People get so offended when you tell them to check their privilege

    @tobiasfunke_md_analrapist oh my god thank you!! I have definitely developed the 'no fucks given' attitude over many years. I feel it's best suited when you can back it up with truthful words πŸ’œ

    @michpud thank you so much Mich. It means a lot knowing that some people actually read AND appreciate what I have to say πŸ’œ

    @ladideathstrike what I like about your posts is that a lot of the time I actually learn something or get an insight into something I was otherwise maybe naive/uneducated about. So thank you for your openness and honesty it's something I truly believe is lacking in the world today!

  • 44w ago camden__steele camden__steele

    Mad love. Well spoken. I find myself often scared to speak or post things like this because I don't know what to say or how to say it, and yet I feel the emotions attached to these things. Thank you for articulating so powerfully, and being mindful, and thoughtful, and connected to the people and the world around you. Fuck know the world needs more people like you. You rock, @ladideathstrike. πŸ€™πŸΌπŸ€™πŸΌ

    @ladideathstrike Oh my Goddess, you are *so* fucken welcome. And, it's a dying art, as well as one of my favorite (& most used) forms of being; #sarcasm 😏#sprinklethatshiterrywhere πŸ˜‚ PS. While I'm here I'm gna go ahead & say, the love you have for your lady is pretty incredible & inspirational. She is so lucky & we are too, for having the *privilege to see it & have you share it with us πŸ™πŸ½
