At council meeting to vote on non-discrimination ordinance. Woman next to me has papers about a 'dangerous ordinance' being voted on. She offers me a pamphlet on Jesus saying he saved her. Asks "Would you like to read about him?" Me, "No, he's made my life hell." "Are you sure it isn't the devil in disguise?" "No, it's Jesus." She turns away. I'm literally sitting in a meeting to talk about how I've been discriminated against by people like her.

I have a confession. I’m not ashamed at all either. I put pineapple on my pizza and you can’t make me stop.

Monday mornings are filled with chest tightening anxiety.

Saw an "it's a girl sign" on a house. After deciding it's tacky, i immediately said in my internal monologue, "why do you have to tell the world what gender you're going to force on your unborn child? Aren't family and friends enough?"

A poem by my insomnia:
Sharks keep swimming
Forward to breath
Stopping
Equals death
Drowning

My ocean bears down
Oppression
Depression
Discrimination
Hatred
Keep swimming
Moving to next
Person
Social media post
Experience
Something always new

Stopping
equals death
Drowning

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 7:00pm: Sun Prairie Common Council is voting on whether to make an ordinance preventing the discrimination of transgender individuals in housing and employment. As a person who has been fired for being non-binary by a company in Sun Prairie, this is important to me. Speaking with my alderperson, it looks like it will pass, but if local folks in the Madison could show up and show support, it would be greatly appreciated.

TFW you want to send $ to good people and Paypal $deadnames you, but you still send $ because that's more important.

We still need funds for so many backdue bills. Cultural identities: I'm a fat, stay-at-home (mostly in bed) disabled, crazy, queer, and non-binary transgender, POC. My partnerfriend/caretaker is a fat, crazy, queer, non-binary transgender femme, white person. I am fighting for disability and she is working for poverty wages and caretaking for me. Please help us out if you can. $surviveandthrive on square cash and venmo. Tehribbit at gmail on PayPal. Please boost, if you're able, too. Thanks!

So one thing I'm not sure I like, if I repost something from someone else and you reply, you are only replying to me and not both people. I see this as a way to make harassment harder, but I'm just not sure of it.

I don't understand people who see "blocking" as wrong and enforcing an echo chamber. Well, ok, turn off your spam filters. Scammers and viagra salespeople deserve your attention, too. Free speech.

So what's the deal with verified here? Just curious because I see some folks verified and some not. Also can't find any info on it.

Irony: CEO of major insurance company saying, "our heads should be closer to our hearts" in regards to business matters. Same company pulled out of ACA because they lost money. Under this CEO's orders.

A mastodon is not a mammoth, that would be like calling a puffin a penguin. Show some damned respect
