Is there anything that I can do with my gender? Like, can I trade it in for something? Sell it to someone at auction? It doesn't seem super useful tbh

If someone is being shitty and you want to criticize them

You can criticize them *just for their shitty behaviour* and stop there

You don't also have to bring their physical appearance, health, disability, neurodiversity, sexuality, gender, race, or other completely benign preferences into it because you feel like being cruel to them

The person you're trying to criticize won't feel the sting of your comment, but your friends who share those traits that you're being cruel about will

You're not "too much." You're just you.

Volcanoes, thunderstorms, and even vibrant flowers make no apologies for existing, and neither should you.

Be yourself in all your overwhelming glory.

plastic trying really hard to be flowers will still only ever be plastic flowers (very deep philosophical thoughts today)

every time someone apologizes for venting online or like, not being in a good mood when we hang out or something i just wanna grab them and be like "people choose to love you" like. you are not my parent, boss, etc. you are not somehow pressuring me into seeing you be unhappy. i have the autonomy to walk away if i need. you are allowed to feel bad. you don't owe me your cheerfulness

if you're a Canadian, please tell the federal government in no uncertain terms that you do not support copyright term extension in any form, as they're trying to sneak in some shitty US copyright law changes in while we're all worried about COVID. they've set a really short time limit on this to try and fly it under the radar, so send in your feedback now!
