swlfie; another EXCC promo post
Day three, open for business! Come on over to table S-13 in the #ECCC2019 Artist Alley and check out all our new stuff!
Take my hand and let us call each other sister.
Let us be like flowers who happen to grow
side by side in a ditch, we gleam
in the morning dew our petals almost touching,
the lost things who grasp for us
see us as one. We are always measured by the wants of others.
We are so bright.
I wish to know you by the hands of your friends
and how they touch your spine, your hair
as you embrace goodbye and hello.
We are warehouse crew and city pigeons,

My long-distance enbyfriend of nearly a year "joked", in complete deadpan, about being a trans chaser last night, and quickly had me in tears.
I have no way of knowing whether or not it's true, or was simply the poorest possible joke they could make in that particular context. (And it was, no doubt about it.)
I am feeling betrayed and hurt, and sorry for continuing to be the same naive, overly trusting fool I'll probably be for the rest of my life.
#throwbackThursday The ruins of Lindisfarne monastery, Northeastern England.
so this month just got worse. after missing work from illness and snow, i am out MY ENTIRE CAR because the motor failed last night
it's not worth replacing (too expensive), so i have to rely on family members and the transit system until we work out a solution
if you're able, you can help by buying a tarot reading through my blog as linked, donating via paypal, or just boosting this post
Townhall; Anti-queer Violence; PDX
Update for folks who don't know:
There's been a string of attacks (9 last I saw) in PDX targeting queer & trans people. This has generally involved approaching queer folks alone or in pairs from behind w/a baseball bat & striking them & are traveling in a tan van.
Additionally, the local police have been shown to text Patriot Prayer leaders, warning them about leftist activity, & are avoiding action/denying the attacks are happening
so yeah. just not hating marginalized groups isn't enough - the world has to actively focus on making itself a place that everyone can live in.
doing things in the mindset that "if it works for 90% of everyone, it's fine" really needs to stop. majorities aren't the only ones who matter. *people* are important. build a world that all people can live in.
