It’s quite interesting to see how many of the so-called “thought leaders” in the web space are so politically clueless.
An important thread considering a lot of the discourse around vasectomies right now.
The government doesn’t think inflation is their problem. Employers don’t think inflation is their problem either. So who’s problem is it? Cuz it sure as fuck ain’t mine.
Over centuries of dynasties, upheavals and revolutions, powerful people have learned that the best way to dominate a population is to manipulate them into serving your interests while giving them the illusion of freedom and control.
On this Memorial Day, I’m thinking of how the military industrial complex has exploited the lives of so many young people to advance the ideals of a greedy, inhumane, and dying empire. “Fought for our freedom” my ass. We are not free.
Reached a new level of queer last night after accidentally finding myself at a drag show 🤣 The Queens brought it tho. What an amazing show 😍
Today’s personal affirmation:
I’m lovable just the way I am, and that knowledge inspires me to show up authentically in every interaction.
This video breaking down the obsession with Trump is such a great watch.
It’s March 1st and you know what that means: it’s my birthday month bitches! 🎉 Can’t believe I’ll be closing the chapter on my 20s. Boy am I looking forward to what comes next.
I cannot wait.
If you still don’t realize that large corporations are currently in control of our public spaces online, I’m not sure what’ll do it. It’s scary to see people advocate for the censorship of Joe Rogan. That power will always be used against progressive ideals and organization.
My wonderful friend Celestial just launched their Ko-fi! I’m so happy to be a monthly member.
When I first realized that I might’ve been raised in a cult, I immediately wondered, “How can I be the only one in my family to see this?” I was the fourth generation in my family to be stuck in this cult, and only a few had decided to ever leave.
Almost three years later, I know that I’m just a pattern breaker. And that’s an extremely difficult role to play. It means being ostracized by people who claimed to love you. It means accepting new truths and new information, no matter how much it completely shatters your sense of reality.
Religion was ultimately an empty sense of security. I thought I knew why humans existed, what my purpose was, and what happened after death. And now I don’t. And interestingly, it’s actually super freeing to not know the answers. Because I’d rather have questions that I can’t answer, than answers I can’t question.
I had such an amazing time visiting Kenz this weekend. It continues to blow my mind how you can meet some of the most amazing people by total accident on the internet.

Now Lewdle is my kind of game.
My second favorite Slack keyboard shortcut is definitely ⇧ + Esc. Which is really only beaten by ⌘ + Q.
Little impromptu trip to Disneyland.
Had such an amazing weekend in Palm Springs. I feel so loved and joyful. What a way to end the year and start a new one. Happy New Year!! 🎊🎆🎈 ❤️
I saw this on Facebook and had to share. In the past year of therapy, I’ve come to realize how horrible and fucked it is for parents to be your first abuser. Both of my parents hit me (although my mother wanted to be less involved in this type of abuse). I got whipped with the belt too many times to count throughout my life.
I used to be in the “I got hit and turned out fine” group of people. No honey, you didn’t turn out fine if you think it’s ok to beat children. Full stop. For many years I just thought it was normal. That parents that actually care about their kids hit them.
But now I know I didn’t deserve that. And neither does anyone else.
The data looks super promising for Omicron. I really enjoyed this video that analyzes data from a few different countries. Happy to see this.
