"the traumatized are unpredictable because we know we can survive"
hannibal goddamn this show everytime
not sure what just happened
accidentially related a quote from a professor to my mother and used my chosen name (forgot to censor myself)
and she just laughed along with me
i can’t tell if she didn’t hear it, is pretending it didn’t happen, or actually just moved on? doubtful of the last one because she still won’t answer emails that accidentially include my chosen name. but.
i hate going back to the suburbs.
if you didn’t care about anne frank until you found out she had same sex attraction then fuck you
anne frank was killed because she was jewish- that’s it, and if that’s not enough for you, if you can’t leave a holocaust narrative at “she died because she was jewish”…
I will keep reblogging people saying good things about Anne Frank till the end of time.
non-Jewish people going on today about “reclaiming” Anne Frank as a “bi icon” or w/e make me really uncomfortable, because it has this ring of “all this time I thought she was just some Jewish kid, but now it turns out she’s one of us!!!!” like if you didn’t find Anne Frank’s story moving until you realized she shared some marker with you then maybe you should reconsider your whole approach to this whole “empathy” thing.
Ashley took this lovely picture of me and Kaj at my house’s drunk author party.
I was Fitzgerald and Kaj was Oscar Wilde.
you can be non-binary and still want to be referred to as he or she
you can be non-binary and still want to be someone’s girlfriend/boyfriend
you can be non-binary and be in a straight-passing relationship
you can be non-binary and want to refer to yourself with gendered language
there is no right way to be non-binary
your identity is perfect the way it is
don’t ever feel like you’re ~not queer enough~ because just by existing you are queer enough.
You have a right to the pronouns that make you most comfortable no matter what. I needed to hear this again today - it can be so damn hard to ask for my pronouns as a nonbinary individual. People don’t want to use he/him/his pronouns when you’re presenting in a way that is not congruent with ciscentric understandings of masculinity. Even in queer circles. This is so, so hard.
I have a right to feel comfortable in spaces. I have a right to demand respect. I have a right to create space where I belong.
